“And a good time was had by all!”
Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

Wife and I went out of our way for their tasting, not for their incredible wines but for the overall ambience of the experience--and we were not at all disappointed! The grounds are beautiful and perfect for a delightful picnic lunch accompanied by one of their very good bubblys. And the drive there from the coast was spectacular!

“A bit disappointed”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

My significant other loves sparkling, so we did the 2 hour drive north to Roederer.
We had high expectations which were not met.
The tour was given by a very young, inexperienced guide who was reading off a sheet.
Did not have the feel of the other sparkling vineyards in Napa & Sonoma.
Tasting room and patio were nice, but I can't say the drive is worth it.

“Celebrations”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

What is a celebration without champagne? The only French winery up here, you can go posh and get Crystal (though make sure to hold it so it can taste the way it should) or enjoy one of the regular vintages now. The basic brut is excellent and a good value. There is a tasting fee, but it includes their still wines, so you have a nice experience in a pleasant tasting room. Some took their tastes to a nice sitting area and relaxed. We stood at the bar, watching the rain and relaxing. Some of their wines may be harder to find elsewhere, so grab them now. You will get a sense of what French wine is like - don't expect your normal Napa tastes.

“Loved visiting this sparkling estate!”
Reviewed February 5, 2013 via mobile

A short drive from Cloverdale along a quaint windy road. We were warmly greeted by Buzz (sparkling/tasting room extraordinaire) who offered to introduce us to their wonderful varieties of bubbly delights. We purchased a bottle to enjoy with our picnic out in their terrace on a beautiful sunny day. Well worth the drive, we'll look forward to another visit and actually enjoy a tour of the estate. Next time we'll purchase a magnum to enjoy with friends!
