Schug Carneros is located on a very pretty piece of land. The tour was average (short) and the tasting room was small.

I feel bad saying fair, because there really wasn’t anything “bad” about this tasting. It’s just not all the hype of the other wineries. The wines were ok, the server was knowledgeable, but just didn’t have the “wow” factor. The tasting room is quite small...More

When you turn onto Bonneau Road from Highway 121/Arnold Drive, you might think you're lost. But keep driving about .5 mile towards the vine-covered foothills where you will find the lovely Schug Carneros Estate Winery. There you will be rewarded by Schug's Sonoma Coast Sauvignon...More

Hello! Definitely saddened to hear of this experience! Schug is a small, family-owned business who takes pride in our hospitality. Please email me directly to discuss and make right. Cheers! mark@schugwinery.com

The reserved tasting was great. The tour, and our tour guide was excellent, wines were top notch. You are able to sit, relax and enjoy the tasting without feeling rushed, or feeling like it’s a “please join our wine club” infomercial.

We’ve been fans of Schug wines for a long time. Finally had a chance to pay a visit. Beautiful facilities, great seeing Axel Schug and of course, the wines! When in Sonoma, be sure to visit Schug!
