“Rachel deserves a raise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2012

If you want an enjoyable and informal tour of a vineyard, if you want a fun, low-key, but knowledgeable wine tasting, go to Rodney Strong in Healdsburg. Rachel, Ray and Greg are the friendly hosts and tour guides at the vineyard. The wines are very good. The vineyard practices environmentally friendly farming techniques and uses solar to provide much of their energy. But Rachel is a key asset. She knows the Rodney Strong products and the competition and in her friendly, enthusiastic way, she helps her guests understand what they are tasting and why they like one wine over another. In just a few minutes you feel like you have been friends for a long time.
Good wine, good people - visit Rodney Strong Vineyards, you won't be dissapointed.

“Great Self Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2012

Of all the wineries that we visited this one had the best self tour. The also appeared to have some of the most knowledgeable staff. This was the only winery that we signed up for their club. I am not normally a big Merlot drinker, but their Merlot was AMAZING. We purchased multiple bottles and had them shipped back. The grounds are beautiful and the staff was very helpful.

“Worth a visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2012

The wines are really good! The tasting room personnel are very good too! I was waited on by Rachel and she was delightful! She suggested some other wineries for me to visit based on my wine preferences and was a true asset to the promotion of wines sales at Rodney Strong. I will be back (and it won't be long)

“Poor Attitude”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2012

Not sure what was up the person that took care of us - but we all had a free tasting coupon and he was like - we are trying to go green here so we can honor the coupon for 4 of you (out of the 8) A couple people in the group did buy wine and some other items so he then caved and did not charge the fee. Not in a rush to go back here.

“Vino in a Fun Tasting Room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2012

We have been enjoying Rodney Strong Wines for many years. They have something for everyone. The tasting room is usually lively and wine flowing with great tastes. If you are lucky enough, seek out Greg or Ray. These guys know there stuff and are great fun to chat with. In the summer there are smooth jazz concerts in there vineyards. Tics are either chair seating or lawn. Every concert we've seen has been wonderful and a lovely way to spend a summer late afternoon/evening. You can bring your picnic to the concerts or buy food and wine there.
