Carol Shelton Zinfandels are some of the best we’ve had while visiting the Sonoma valley wine region. Her tasting room is small, but full of enthusiastic customers and servers, along with the winemaker herself who will answer your questions and sometimes escort you on an...More

“Carol Shelton” is not a familiar wine brand but for the connoisseurs and cognoscenti she is the most awarded winemaker in the USA! The reason you may not have heard of her is that she crafts magnificent wines from single vineyards and, therefore, small productions....More

We've been members of Carol's wine club for many years. If you like zinfandel you must try hers. She produces some of the best zins in California. She also produces a few whites, and we especially love her Coquille Blanc. Her winery is tucked away...More

Having been enjoying Carol's wines for several years. First time to her tasting room tucked away in a corporate park. Nice selection of zins. Friendly staff.

Before visiting, our group of 6 didn't know about Carol Shelton. So upon arrival in this industrial park setting, you are very skeptical. However, we truly had the best time! The wines were wonderful, we met Carol herself, and she even gave us a brief...More

A wine tasting must do in Sonoma. Totally unpretentious. Sort of out-of-the-way, in an industrial park that will make you wonder if you are in the right place. Carol puts her 30 plus years of experience to use in creating some of the finest wines...More
