We arrived in Napa late last night. We’re staying at Senza, and the couple who owns the hotel also owns Walt. Since we aren’t big Cab people, we drove to Sonoma for the Pinot experience. We just finished up a wonderful afternoon with Cynthia. Ask...More

The best Pinot Noir in Sonoma is definitely from Walt Wines. I always bring my clients here; it’s a small place, which it makes even more private and exclusive. It’s right in the heart of Sonoma downtown

Good wine is not hard to find in Sonoma so if you are also looking for good service you can literally go anywhere else. The way my friends and I were treated was nothing short of appalling and resulted in a cancelled membership.

We went to another wine tasting place about a block away and were recommended Walt because the other place was fully booked and Walt does not require reservations. So thankful for the recommendation. Great explanations and tastings particularly for Pinot.

We had not really heard of Walt wines but saw the sine touting Pinot Noirs while strolling in Sonoma. We love Pinots so decided to check it out. It is an unusual setup- more like a restaurant than a typical tasting room. They ask you...More

See Walt wines web site. Sister brand of hall napa. Both terrific. Don,t expect huge discount as wine is reasonably priced and sell out
