The best thing about this place is it's location. It is right on the edge of downtown Sonoma which has such charm in itself. The grounds are attractive but their tasting bar and shop feel very corporate. We went on a weekend but we waited some time for a place for a tasting even though we went with club members and no one even acknowledged us for at 25 minutes, even after we stepped up to the bar we had to flag someone down to get a taste. The gentleman that helped us was generally knowledgable and gave us a pour of a limited release that was quite good. Overall several solid basics but nothing to swoon over.

My wife and I came here on a beautiful Saturday afternoon for a tasting. The tasting room was busy with lots of kids and babies but the bar was not full. We went over to the bar for a tasting and waited for over ten minutes. Many tasting room staff walked past us and even served the family next to us with two babies. No one said anything to us or tried to help us. It was a terrible experience and we left after ten minutes of no service. Keep in mind this was during off season and we were standing at the wine bar that was not full. I would not recommend going here.

Josh, our host, was warm and welcoming. He educated and enthused us with his knowledge and passion for the winemaking process.
Our group are lucky enough to have been to many vineyards around the world; Josh made this an absolute highlight.

Nice place! It was very busy though so the staff was a little distracted. Wine tasted good and we took a few bottles home...

A trip to Sonoma Wine Country should include a visit to this magnificent and historic property. The Sebastiani family were early pioneers in the wine business, and today, their bottlings are sleek, polished, and beautifully balanced. Be sure to check out their Cherry Block Cabernet, incredibly delicious. One could surmise the name is inspired by the dark cherry like fruit, but you'd be mistaken. Cherries replaced vines during prohibition, hence the wines name!
