When your done with the snooty vineyards visit this place. This is where you come for good wine, welcoming atmosphere, good value, and dog friendly. Bring some picnic food or buy some stuff in the shop (cheese, meat, crackers). This is the kinda place you want to hangout at on the regular!

Be Prepared, No Outside Food Allowed....due to Covid...I mean profits
Dec 2020
We were members of Larson for years and enjoyed the quaint, family-friendly winery. But throughout the years they have "changed" into just another overpriced money grabbing Napa winery.

During the shutdowns, they implemented a no outside food policy, "for our safety and local health regulations." But they sold food there that is apparently safer than my food from home. We instead had to go out front and have a picnic in the parking lot to eat our food.

Okay, understood but we canceled our membership for the time being because we had no plans to visit the winery with such restrictions.

Napa county recently when to a lower restricted tier so I called and was excited to renew our membership in hopes they allow outside food. I was informed their outside food policy is now an internal policy no longer related to "my safety or local health regulations". However, you can buy their own food and sounds like this will be a long standing policy.

Looks like they saw the revenue coming in from their inside food sales and decided It was looking too good and changed their policy. A long standing Napa winery tradition of friends and family bringing goodies to eat and share can not happen there but we can instead buy their premade sandwiches.

PLEASE LARSON, consider allowing outside food again!

Great wines without the fuss
Mar 2021
Bob our guide provided us with a unique history of the family, the land and how it all transformed from rodeo grounds to a family winery today. We sampled all red's that we both enjoyed, but ended up not purchasing. If your looking for a relaxing environment with out the fuss and pressure to join a club or purchase it's a nice stop off of the main road with down to earth people and vibe. It doesn't have to sound or look fancy to be good - I would recommend adding this to your stop.

Enjoyable afternoon
Aug 2020
Great kid-friendly winery. The atmosphere is chill and relaxed, almost like a beer garden. The wines were all tasty and we appreciated that they had a diverse food menu (the rosemary olive oil here is amazing!). Kids will feet right at home, even though the Bocce Court was closed due to the pandemic. It's not the most scenic of views and I wish that our server had spent more time with us talking about the various wines. But other than that, it was enjoyable and I would recommend especially if you have kids, as they are made to feel welcome.

My daughter, her two cousins and I took a day trip to Sonoma and stopped in a few wineries. Larson Family Winery was on our list.
We sampled a few wines and ordered a bottle of Pinot Noir to share.
We headed outside to sit; it was a beautiful day and looking at the vineyard while enjoying our wine was just a relaxing experience.
Relaxed place, friendly servers, made for a lovely afternoon.

Like being with Family!!!!!
Apr 2019
We stayed at the "Captains House" on the levee for Sonoma Creek across the yard from the winery. I have family "history" on this road and being able to stay here was like being with my grandparents that owned a business and property just north of the Winery on Millerick Rd.
The house is FULLY equipt with anything thing you need the Larson Family and Staff are wonderful hosts! Unfortunately we are unable to partake in the wines BUT our physician daughter who is also a wine connoisseur LOVES the Larson Family Winery wines!
The grounds are quiet and peaceful, we stayed at the end of April 2019, but I imagine at harvest time there is a bit of wonderful activity to watch!

Having lived on a family dairy in Petaluma, Ca and also having family history on Millerick Rd being able to stay here was like "being home" again. Staying in the house one could feel the love the Millerick Family had for this property, intertwined with the sense of "community" of the families that lived on Millerick Rd and history ( that I heard from my grandparents) from the early days of Schellville.

If you are looking for a quiet relaxing, place to stay that has room for family or friends that has easy access to the coast, Petaluma, Sonoma and Napa Valleys.
You won't find a better location.

Great tasting experience.
Jun 2019 • Couples
This winery is close to Sonoma, but located off a small country road. Don't turn around when you reach the gravel road, the winery is only a short distance ahead. The tasting room is beautiful with a ranch feel. There is a place in back to picnic or you can play some bocce! The winery is dog-friendly, but make sure your dog gets along well with other dogs as they have 3 beautiful labs roaming the winery. This is truly a family winery, it has been in the family for almost 120 years. The gentleman who helped us took the time to discuss the wines with us and answer our numerous questions. We found several wines we liked and plan on returning again when we next visit Sonoma.
