“Great wines @ reasonable prices from good friendly people”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Okay so I have been a fan of De Loach wines for years. When they sold the brand the new corporation jacked up the prices and turned a fun, family run tasting room into a stuffy, snooty over priced destination for people who don't know any better. Thank God the De Loach family came back and opened Hook and Ladder Winery. The fun is back on Olivet Road along with great wines at affordable prices. Their Zins are second to none and the Cab Francs have been absolutely phenominal. Friendly staff who remember you after just a couple of visits. Everyone I have brought here loves the place. A must visit when your in the Santa Rosa area

Server told us they distribute to Siegel's and Specs in Texas, so we'll be looking for this wine locally.

“Amazing staff and wines!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

The grounds are fun and even have a bocce ball set to play outside of the tasting room. The staff is all very friendly and knowledgeable. They offer special discounts for firefighters as well. The wines were very tasty!

“Cab Franc was awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

After visiting Harvest Moon Winery (right next door), this is also a great family run property. Their Cab Franc was incredible and we bought a few bottles to bring home. The tasting room is decorated with Fireman t-shirts and it is a great honor to fireman around the area and the US. Don't miss this winery.

“Free tastings, friendly staff”

Thanks, Hook and Ladder! After a day of visits to wineries that seemed not to care whether we were there or not, you made us feel welcome and made great recommendations.
