“Fun winery tour!”

I live in California and I am surrounded by winery's. What stood out about this winery tour was the short informational film they showed to us on the tour. I have always wondered why they were allowed to call their sparkling wine Champagne since it clearly is not from Champagne, France and I got the answer through the film. The tasting room is free and of good size. They have a good selection of "Champagne" and VERY good prices! You can also do a tour of their gardens.
Also a very good deli right next door to the tasting room.

Had been told by a native of Sonoma "you must have lunch at the Korbel Cellars Deli. He was absolutely right. Very tasty heft sandwiches and sparkling wine by the glass. Had the Tri-tip with gorgonzola and the pulled pork. I give both an A. The patio set among the beautiful landscaping and trees made me want to come back to this special spot.

This place offers tours really frequently, and the tours were very informative and impressive compared to other tours of vineyards. Most impressively, their tours are free, even with a tasting included! You learn that Korbel has a lot more history than some of the other vineyards in the area. You're also able to taste some Korbel champagnes that they don't mass-distribute, so you can't find them in stores.

The deli they have there is great! After our tour and tasting, my husband and I had delicious sandwiches and pizza there for lunch, and we also bought some delicious cheese and crackers to enjoy later that night.

Korbel offers any four champagns (i.e., sparkling wines) from their list of about a dozen options, plus zinfandel and port as another of the four. The room is large and comfortable, with items for sale to browse while sipping tasting. Korbel's sparkling wines are widely distributed, and provide good quality wines at a reasonable cost for people who like a step up from the minimum cost styles. The staff at the tasting room was friendly and very experienced, fun to talk with. A visit is recommended as one of the easiest places to see along the Russian River.

We took a private tour of Korbel. The tour was informational and thorough. The tastings were presented nicely, as well. We ate lunch outside and the cafe sandwiches were delicious! Overall, it was a fun experience!
