Embrace the change in seasons in wine country by visiting our Dry Creek Valley tasting room Thursday-Monday. Tastings start at $30 for a flight of five hand crafted wines. Take a seat at our vine-side dog friendly patio, or in our covered pavilion, and take a stroll through our rows for a self guided walk (map provided). Reservations recommended, walk-ins on availablity. Boxed lunches or charcuterie for pre-purchase with advanced notice.
The weekend of January 13-14, West Wines is “snowed in” so mush on over! We’re raiding the cellar and pulling out the good stuff from the 2016 vintage: Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, Tango Cuvee, and a Seafoam Blanc de Blancs! Put on your cozy flannel PJs and taste some great wines as we celebrate Winter Wineland!
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.
