Great wine tasting at Sonoma Plaza with indoor outdoor seating . We especially enjoyed the French oak
Chardonnay and the sparkling rose. I am not one who likes sweet so the rose was great. The Chardonnay great buttery flavor. It was a nice area to sit outside and enjoy a glass of wine, so much that we went back again the next day.

Visited the tasting room with my parents on a whim on our way out of town. So glad we stopped! Nicki was helping us and helped us pick out flights suited to our tastes. Wine was tasty, my mom did the reserve and i did the standard. Both flights were great and we each found wines we enjoyed and i liked mine enough to join the club it was easy to ship wines back home and now i have future shipments to look forward to. Highly recommend a stop at their tasting room if you are visiting the Sonoma square.

Came to Roche’s wine tasting room in Sonoma and had a great experience thanks to Mark & Roche’s amazing wine! We arrived an hour early in the hopes we could get in. Was told we could be seated, but they’re quite busy & it may be a bit of a wait. We did not mind at all. Mark found us a nice table out front, the day was beautiful & the wine was delicious. Roche wines are so good! We bought some bottles & they are shipping them to our home. We will return!

My parents were visiting San Francisco from Ireland on a special trip. I thought they would enjoy the Roche vineyard as it's owned by an Irish family and they sell themselves as an Irish vineyard. I emailed the vineyard 2 weeks in advance to make a booking but only heard back from them late the night beforehand confirming the booking. My parents, two friends and I went along last Saturday. When we arrived my mother asked the hostess if the Irish owners were around and we were directed to the owners daughter Maura who was very kind and welcoming. She chatted to us all for a few minutes and escorted us to our table and told us the name of waiter who would be serving us. The waiter arrived and asked us how we knew the owner, we explained that we didn't know her, that we were Irish and had spoken to her about Ireland. He told us that he wasn't going to charge us for the wine tasting and that we could order any wines from two different tasting menus. We were delighted with this kind gesture and chose some wines to taste. At the end of our tasting the waiter came over to our table and told us to pay the woman at the desk. I was a bit confused and politely queried this. He said that he initially thought we knew the owners as we were chatting to Maura but later realized we were just regular guests so we were being charged. We paid the bill and left with a very bitter taste in our mouths. We were all shocked by this treatment. It ruined our day at the vineyards. I've never felt so humiliated in my life, especially in front of the guests that we had invited and my parents who had travelled from Ireland. My parents were also very upset, this is not Irish customer service. It was utmost disrespect and we were all very upset by this.

We had such an amazing experience here! We would have joined if we lived in the area but we are from S. CA. Nikki was the best ever and the wine was also very good. You can sit in an area under a bid beautiful tree in a courtyard next to their "house" tasting room. The bathrooms were immaculate and the time just flew by we had such a great experience here. Thank you Nikki

Decided it was time for a wine break and wandered into Roche tasting room in downtown Sonoma. So glad we did! Good wines, relaxing garden setting, good service.

My husband and I had a great time trying generous samples of wine. The hosts shared the science and techniques behind making a great bottle of wine. This family owned winery serves the best wine in Sonoma and Napa. We joined the wine club to continue the experience. We also loved Ms. Jean!!! She is a pro with pouring the wine and creating a fun atmosphere.

My husband and I made a 2 pm reservation for labor day weekend when the temperature was over 105 degrees. We ended up going around noon and they were able to seat us. Seats are spread out and shaded with umbrellas and trees. There are misters everywhere that helped with the heat. We opted for wine tasting (instead of bottle or by the glass). We did a family flight ($20) and a reserved/select ($30). We got to chose 4 for each tasting off the respective list. The wine was good. We paired it with a charcuterie boards from Girl & the Fig and a smoked salmon platter from Aunt Momo's. It was perfect for 2 pple (we were hungry) and it held us over until late dinner. The staff was really friendly and attentive.

Looking at other reviews I will not be the first to proclaim this my favorite wine country stop. Visiting with friends who are part of the wine club, so maybe that helped, but looking around, I think this is just an exceptional establishment. We tried many wines, and found favorites of the day; even took some home. The seating area is great as well. Would love to visit again one day.
