My wife and I enjoyed an hour tasting 5 wines from this Sonoma mainstay winery. $18 each bought us 5 different wines to taste fairly informally and time to chat with the young, knowledgeable host. It was fun to see the vineyards where the grapes for some of the wine we tasted were grown. The 2014 or so red wines... More

Got a break in the weather and did our tasting on the deck. Fabulous view. Very relaxing. Pourer was awesome. She magically appeared the moment we needed anything and otherwise left us alone to visit and enjoy. Oh, and the wines are the best.

One of our favourite wines - we had to visit on a recent trip to Sonoma/Napa. Mid week visit but there were still a number of visitors to the winery. Deja (as in Deja Vu) the dog greeted us and then Chris at the tasting bar took great lengths to ensure we enjoyed anything we wanted. Bought a bottle of... More

The best part of this place is the view outside. Not even the building themselves, the natural area that Mother Nature built, not the Ravenswood architect. This was on the list of stops to do because I've had the wine before, like most people, just because it is such a huge brand and a good, cheap bottle of table wine.... More

Ravenswood Winery was the only place on our itinerary in Napa/Sonoma where the experience was negative. In the comparatively small tasting room, all places at the counter were taken. That was not a problem in itself, we understand that a popular place may not be able to attend to us right away, but no one even paid any attention to... More

This is the place to go for a perfect wine tasting experience. It's best to book a tour so you can see the vineyard and go to the barrel room. You'll be able to taste many different wines and some are only sold through the tasting room and the wine clubs. Most people know about Ravenswood but I was surprised... More

This is the kind of experience that we were looking for during our visit to the Sonoma wine country. From the minute we walked in, we felt the good-natured pride that the staff feels for the winery and the wine. It actually was fairly late in the afternoon, just a half hour before closing time. But we were welcomed in... More

We had a great time with the wine tasting with a group of friends at Ravenswood. Great wine and teachers. The winery is beautiful and secluded.

It was good to have confirmed that the most expensive wine is not always the most enjoyable. For me, the 2014 Barricia Zinfandel emerged as the winner among the five I tasted. We received friendly, competent guidance during our tasting. The surroundings are pleasant, albeit not as grand as in some other places, such as St. Francis.

This winery has a fantastic Zinfandel selection, 13 different brands, knowledgeable staff and great gems such as their 40th vintage selection. Unfortunately not very child friendly, our kids were subject to drunken customers comments, nevertheless a great wine!
