We took the kids with us and sat outside on the patio. We shared a tasting and the server brought us wines outside so we did not have to go back and forth inside. It was a very hot day outside but there is shade and nice chairs to sit on and sip wine from. You also have a nice... More

The tour itself was a little to long for me, and it was very hot. My feet got very dirty from walking in the vineyard. The people were friendly, and the wine was good. I loved that they handed you a glass of wine the second you got there. Out of the 4 vineyard's we went to this was the... More

Happy Canadians, they met with the owner, toured the grounds and vineyards, dry farmed, loved the Belloni Zinfandel! I'm happy to re amend this winery! Andre Scott/ executive car service Napa valley

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Ravenswood Winery with Ray and other staff/owners on an early Sunday morning visit recently. As mentioned by other reviewers, there are wines available that you cannot get in the stores back east and it was nice to enjoy and purchase them (even joined wine club!). They have a nice gift shop and outdoor Adirondack chairs... More

Since we were experience shopping our way through Napa and Sonoma, this was a highlight for us. Really fun, really informative and the wines are really good. Take some time to sip some of their dry rose on the back terrace - a big surprise for us at this House of Zin.

We recently traveled to Sonoma to attend the NASCAR race and rented a house right in Sonoma. The Saturday before the race we decided to visit some of the Sonoma Valley wineries - and Ravenswood was the first one of the day. It was so picturesque and the folks were so friendly - I enjoyed this stop more than any... More

This place seems beautifully tucked into the countryside. Kathleen showed us on a tour of the vines, showed us old equipment and even let us thief some wine right out of the barrel! If this had been our only stop I would have left town a happy woman. No other vineyard came close to the atmosphere at Ravenswood.

My wife and I visited on June 85h, 2015. We were there in the middle of one of the hottest days of the year, so the AC in the tasting room was very welcome. I wanted to visit this winery because it was one that I actually found to buy locally; I mentioned that to our host and she said... More

When our host said we were going to Ravenswood, I was underwhelmed. With all the "famous" wineries that were nearby, why this one? Two reasons. I experienced the best winery tour and got to sample excellent wines that are not available anywhere other than the winery. The tour alone is worth the visit. But the wine AND the tour make... More
