Wine Tasting Vine-Side

The vineyards have filled out with lush canopy, and flowers are emerging which will turn into juicy berries.  Warm days coupled with cool nights will ensure even ripening and fresh acidity.  Soak it in on our vine-side patio with a tasting flight of our award-winning wines.  We're open Thursday through Monday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. (5 p.m. on Saturdays) Tastings start at just $30.  Complimentary for Compass Club Members.

A Sparkling 4th of July

The Tasting Room is Open on Thursday July 4th.  We're celebrating by pouring our 2018 Seafoam Blanc de Blancs - refreshing, crisp, delicious.  Bring the family and march through the vineyard like Washington and the Continental Army advancing to Saratoga.  Afterward, enjoy a picnic lunch with a specially curated tasting flight.  Reserve here

Our tasting room, tucked away under a huge oak and overlooking our vineyards is the place to enjoy a well aged Cabernet Sauvignon and other fine wines. West Wines is a family winery in Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County run by Katarina Bonde and Bengt Akerlind since 1998. Our winemaking style weighs heavily on traditional French methods enhancing elegance and complexity combined with the fruity and rich flavors from our estate grown grapes. We have two sustainably farmed vineyards, one creek-side on the valley floor and the other 400 feet up on a ridge with beautiful south and west exposure.  Read more here.
