I think Hendry Vineyard is the perfect starting point for any nerd who wants to get into wine. I use the term nerd affectionately as both my husband and I consider ourselves nerds since he's an engineer and I'm an architect. Hendry was our first wine tour, I scheduled it last minute after reading all the yelp and trip advisor reviews saying if you are engineer, this is the tour to take, and I thought, well we have an afternoon free before a full day of wine tasting in Sonoma, let's try Hendry! BEST DECISION I MADE!!!
George Hendry the owner, led our small group on a wine tour that lasted well over 2 hours. We LOVED this, but if you are not that interested or are already quite knowledgeable about the wine making process, I can see how this would not be everyone's cup of tea. We loved George, he answered all our questions, we had a great dialog back and forth throughout the entire tour and tasting. We tasted 11 different wines, and let me tell you, George is not shy on the pours! The tasting is $20, but waived if you buy a bottle of equal or greater value. We really enjoyed all the wines at Hendry, particularly the Zinfandels and the Cabernets. We actually brought home a case of Hendry wine, and we've since joined the "friends of Hendry" wine club.
I recommend Hendry to wine newbies who like technical details and small intimate groups.
I do not recommend Hendry for wine connoisseurs who do not want to waste over 2 hours on content they already know. I also do not recommend Hendry for groups not interested in technical details of wine but in getting intoxicated and visiting as many wineries as possible in a day.
Hendry was the perfect intro to our weekend in wine country, but it's not for everyone and I recommend doing your research to make sure it's the right fit for you before making your reservation.
