You know it's good when you learn without even noticing that you are being taught.This was by far the best educational experience on Red wines we had our entire week in California.A visit to his vineyard is well worth the climb...

I booked a tour with Tim after reading all the reviews and looking at their web site and knew this was the winery I wanted to spend time at to celebrate our birthdays. Tim was great, he returned my emails promptly and provided detailed driving instructions for us. When we arrived Tim and surprised me with birthday balloons, which was... More

Tim and Kandy blew my mind by educating me about Bourdeux (red) wines. I'm into sweet wines and thought reds were nasty, until they educated me on the HOW and WHY of wines. I found out that I am a "food with wine" taster. I need to have food when I drink my wines. Thank you again Tim and Kandy... More

My husband and I had the best experience ever! The owners gave us the most personalized and educational experience! We both learned so much about tasting wine and pairing, more than we ever expected! Everyone should visit BobDog!

My husband and I went to Sonoma wine country for our honeymoon. Our host at Auberge on the Vineyard booked us a visit at BobDogs. We are so glad she did! We visited 15 wineries on our trip, and BobDogs was by far our favorite experience. Tim, the owner and grower, sat down with us for 2 hours and gave... More

My wife and I made the trek up to Bobdog last week and we were very impressed with Tim. I walked in knowing very little about Bordeaux wines but walked out with a much greater appreciation for them. You have to make an appointment but it's worth it😃. My in-laws were impressed as well and it was one of the... More

Yes, it's remote, but well worth the extra time it takes to drive up the steep and winding roads to the top of the mountain to enjoy a spectacular view of the valley. Best yet, there's great wine up there, and Tim offers an outstanding plain-language lesson in the art of making (and enjoying) wine. If you HAVE to have... More

Super nice and knowledgeable people. The owners Tim and Kandy loved explaining about their wines and the differences between the European and Californian wines- very specific descriptions. Will definitely visit again if coming back to this area!
