We found this small Sonoma winery in my quest for good Petite Syrah. They deliver with excellent, affordable reds. We joined their wine club and look forward to each shipment. Their tasting room is a cozy casual place. Interesting to see the locals come with an empty jug bottle and get refills of their wine.

Foppiano Vineyards has a wonderful history in California. Some of their history is on display in their tasting room. It's a very nice place with the typical bar for tastes but the also have a few tables behind the tasting room under a massive walnut tree. Danielle, our representative, was extremely friendly and gave us insights to the wines were tasting. A great place to visit, see history, and taste great wines.

I would stay away from this winery if you appreciate any kind of customer service.

We came here during a wedding weekend, having received tasting vouchers. When we used at other wineries, they were extremely gracious and gave us pours/service just as if we had paid at the time. However, at Foppiano, they have a separate menu for voucher tasting that just offers the nastiest wine that no one wants. Given that tastings are $5/person and our vouchers had cost more than that, we were really shocked that Foppiano would be so cheap, especially since folks obviously buy bottles of wine after tastings.

Having horrible service and being so cheap cost them a great customer at the end: we ended up joining all the other wineries we visited with vouchers.

Really sad business practice.

Great little family run winery that offers personal touches not seen at the larger producers. We typically make this our first, northernmost stop and then work our way back down towards San Fran. They have the nicest people working in the tasting room and we even bumped into the new vintner last time. Great little stop, even with kids.
