Ravenswood Winery
#16 of 104 Food & Drink in Sonoma
Everyone was very friendly and welcoming both visits, and the atmosphere was refreshingly different than the bigger wineries.
This winery has a fantastic Zinfandel selection, 13 different brands, knowledgeable staff and great gems such as their 40th vintage selection.
Gundlach Bundschu Winery
#17 of 104 Food & Drink in Sonoma
We loved the wines so much, we joined their wine club (the only one we joined and we went to 10+ wineries/tasting rooms).
The views from the top of the vineyard are breathtaking and that along with Rob's sense of humor and accommodating personality, made our visit to Gundlach Bundschu the best visit we had in Sonoma or Napa, Thanks Rob!

Buena Vista Winery
#18 of 104 Food & Drink in Sonoma
With good wine and a fascinating history, Buena Vista has long been one of my favorite wineries in the Sonoma Valley.
Visited this winery on our visit to Sonoma wineries.

Repris Wines
#19 of 104 Food & Drink in Sonoma
Out of five wineries we toured in the Napa/Sonoma area, Repris was the only one where we joined the wine club.
All of their tours are private just for your group so when we arrived, Ryan greeted my husband and me with a refreshing glass of Sauvignon Blanc and we sat down together to learn about the history of the winery......
Larson Family Winery
#20 of 104 Food & Drink in Sonoma
Jimmy was so attentive and clearly appreciated that we had come back for a second year in a row - unlike some larger wineries where it's like an assembly line in terms of them wanting to get you in and out quickly.
They have an amazing patio with picnic tables that overlooks the vineyards and 4 labs that wander the premise and are always looking for belly rubs.

Nicholson Ranch
#21 of 104 Food & Drink in Sonoma
We have done plenty of wine tasting in this wine county area (due to our proximity to Napa Valley and our love for wine), and only a hand full of wineries delivered the way Nicholson ranch did.
The wines were amazing and Mike who was our vineyard and cave tour guide explained in detail the grape growing, harvesting techniques and the soil, temperature and atmosphere influences on the grapes and the wines...

Gloria Ferrer Champagne Caves
#22 of 104 Food & Drink in Sonoma
Off on another adventure, my wife and I decide to trek to Sonoma for the first time to experience more of what the valley has to offer for amazing wineries.
Sonoma per se, it's amazing, but if you add a magnificent view of beautiful vineyards, nature and a Californian sunset + the best sparkling wine... It's everything!

Viansa Sonoma
#24 of 104 Food & Drink in Sonoma
We stopped at Viansa because it is one of the more affordable wineries (some charge $40 per person for a tasting — this is for my non-west coast peeps).
Viansa is the perfect winery if you are coming from San Francisco as it is easily accessible (one of the first when entering Sonoma valley), it is on top of a hill so you have a view, and the ambiance makes you fe...

Petroni Vineyards
#26 of 104 Food & Drink in Sonoma
.We have been to many well known wineries as well as a lot of smaller ones but for overall experience (wine quality, atmosphere, host, etc) this one is really hard to beat
Overall this was the best vineyard, and tour we have ever been to, the best experience we have had wine tasting, and some of the finest wines we have tasted, all with a really great knowledgeable host who we felt...
WALT Wines
#27 of 104 Food & Drink in Sonoma
I do recommend to go on a weekday as it was nice and quiet and fit a few other wineries in.
Grab a sandwich at the deli around the corner on the plaza and spend some quality time while your "wine educators" introduce you to their various wines from vineyards from Santa Barbara, California's central coast...
Ram's Gate Winery
#28 of 104 Food & Drink in Sonoma
This was my favorite tasting experience of all the wineries we visited in Sonoma.
Everything was picture-perfect and we loved taking time to walk around and see the vineyards, the garden and the breathtaking views from the top of the hill.

Sebastiani Vineyards and Winery
#29 of 104 Food & Drink in Sonoma
The wine club is a great value and offers access to other Napa / Sonoma Area wineries as well as others throughout the West Coast.
Our guide was Zeynep, who clearly has a passion for the winery and the way the history of the winery and the town of Sonoma have been intertwined for many years.

Pangloss Cellars
#30 of 104 Food & Drink in Sonoma
This was only one of the 2 wineries I actually purchased from this trip.
My husband and I stopped in for a free tasting given by our hotel concierge at the end of our winery tours.
Patz & Hall
#31 of 104 Food & Drink in Sonoma
However there was a certain comfort and casualness that was so refreshing compared to the stuffiness of some of the other wineries.
Using grapes from vineyards in the Napa Valley, Russian River Valley, Mendocino County, Sonoma Coast and Santa Lucia Highlands, these folks know how to make great wines.

Hamel Family Wines
#33 of 104 Food & Drink in Sonoma
Of all the wineries we've been to on our Sonoma trips, Hamel has been our favorite!
Marty took care of my wife and I and did an exceptional job explaining their winery and giving us a wonderful tour.
Hanzell Vineyards
#35 of 104 Food & Drink in Sonoma
After 5 days in both valleys and many vineyards and wineries later, this ended up on the top of our list.
During a week in Sonoma my friends and I enjoyed several excellent tastings and vineyard tours, having sorted through many recommendations from discerning friends in advance of our trip.
Bartholomew Park Winery
#36 of 104 Food & Drink in Sonoma
Last Chance to Enjoy Excellent Bartholomew Park Winery Wines!
The vineyard was purchased in 1859 by Hungarian emigree Agoston Haraszthy, who went on to play a large role in the development of Sonoma and the local vineyards.

Scribe Winery
#37 of 104 Food & Drink in Sonoma
I really enjoy the smaller wineries because you really get personalized service and information about the wine if you'd like.
We sat in the sun overlooking the beautiful vineyards and walked out with smiles and a few boxes of excellent wine.
Roche Winery
#39 of 104 Food & Drink in Sonoma
This was refreshing after going to some very snooty wineries Roche was an oasis for us.
Jason was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and spent a good amount of his time talking to us about the winery and its history.
Three Sticks Wines
#41 of 104 Food & Drink in Sonoma
We had to visit after hosts at 2 different wineries we visited mentioned 3 Sticks.
The atmosphere and history of the Adobe House was well worth the visit, especially listening to host, Steve's wonderful stories; and then we tasted THE most excellent wines from Three Sticks Winery...all first class!
Donum Estate
#42 of 104 Food & Drink in Sonoma
We love pinot noir's, and these were the most nuanced and expressive that we found on our visit of more than twenty area wineries.
Service was excellent, our tasting was in the most gorgeous patio overlooking the estate, and the following tour of the grand art throughout the vineyards was a beautiful lasting finish.
Schug Carneros Estate Winery
#43 of 104 Food & Drink in Sonoma
My husband and I have been to wineries all over the world, and we were incredibly impressed by everything about Schug: the property, the service, and, above all, the wines, all of which were delicious (if you've e...
But keep driving about .5 mile towards the vine-covered foothills where you will find the lovely Schug Carneros Estate Winery.

Anaba Wines
#44 of 104 Food & Drink in Sonoma
Anaba has a beautiful, dog-friendly, deck that overlooks the vineyard and the wines that you sip on will keep you in heaven.
The place utilizes wind turbine power, has a beautiful porch and back deck overlooking vineyards and the valley.
Sojourn Cellars
#45 of 104 Food & Drink in Sonoma
Ok, there are a couple of very good Napa Cabs, but for me, Sojourn produces excellent Sonoma wines, mostly in small lots from named vineyards.
The wine educator at a Napa winery suggested we visit Sojourn since we were based in Sonoma for this trip.
Homewood Winery
#47 of 104 Food & Drink in Sonoma
Seriously, we stopped at some massive, big name wineries which had beautiful views, beautiful people, beautiful wines and a sterile feel.
Since we are very active we took a bike winery tour and our first stop was at this very eclectic place.

Corner 103
#49 of 104 Food & Drink in Sonoma
Opened in 2015, Lloyd grows many of his wines from a vineyard that's about fifteen miles away from his tasting room.
I wanted something different than a tour of a winery to balance our trip experience.
