We opted for this experience because the ranch is quite small and because they're organic! We were very lucky as me and my husband were the only ones on that day and at that time to take the tour! First we got a glass of white Chardonnay, which I was very grateful for as I prefer white wine to red.... More

Medlock Ames offers a ranch tour where the production facilities are. Don't miss this opportunity. Not quite off the grid, they use full solar power. Really enjoyed their wines. Tasted is various stages of production to appreciate the growth of the wines. Go there.

Thank you Mr. Traubenberg for finding us and writing about us... I remember your visit. It was a perfect October day. We are happy you and your friends enjoyed tasting out of tank and barrel and the 'cheese and wine pairing' on the back porch. More

Our friends who have a home in Sonoma took us here. We were greeted by Chelsea who encouraged us to have the wine tasting (Artisan Cheese & Wine Pairing) with cheeses and citrus marmalade (made by the winery). We took her advice and were not disappointed. We had four locally made cheeses and the marmalade on a cracker paired with... More

We enjoyed our walk and tour of the Ranch given by Laney. The story of how Medlock Ames started was told with great humor and admiration. Our group loved the way this winery integrated their operations into natural environment and habitats. The tasting itself was good. There were a couple of wines that stood out from the rest. One of... More

Our friends are members of this Winery's wine club and brought us here for a tasting. They offer a tasting combined with cheese and the pairings were very well chosen. The tasting rooms are in a lovely setting and we sat outside looking at the roof of vines and admiring the "country garden". A friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic Server really... More

This place used to be an old country store about 15 years ago. It was purchased and rebuilt by Medlock-Ames about 9 or 10 years back, and made into a wine tasting place, just down the road from Jimtown. The structure is high class and has good quality designed in to how it is set. They have the removable 'walls'... More

We were on our way to another winery tour and found this place along the way. Very pleased to learn all about their organic and sustainable farming practices. To top it off, their wines are extremely good and we decided to become members. We're looking forward to visiting again and touring the farm.

I had a wonderful wine and cheese paring that was very cost effective. The service was great and the young ladies working here were very attentive. The wine selection on the tasting was great and and their is a nice patio/garden area out back. I would definitely recommend this stop on your next wine tasting tour.
