9 Sparkling Wineries to Visit in Sonoma This Holiday Season

Sonoma Magazine selected Iron Horse Vineyards as a must visit sparkling-focused winery to visit in Sonoma this holiday season, adding that the winery is one of the “power players” on the local sparkling wine scene.

The writer paints a detailed picture of what one can experience at Iron Horse, along with a couple of the tasting options. “The tasting room at this Sebastopol sparkling wine superstar has an east-facing view of its vineyards, the Mayacamas mountain range and Mt. St. Helena. Fog seeps into this Green Valley of Russian River Valley site morning and evening, refreshing the grapes, yet the days can be gloriously sunny for sipping Champagne-quality bubblies and taking in the visuals. As outstanding as the Sterling family’s sparkling wines are – and there are more than a dozen of them, some with charity fundraising ties – tastings ($30) are reasonably priced and outdoors, casual and non-fussy, and staged in front of a redwood barn-style building. Spitting sampled wines down the hill is not only OK, it’s encouraged for those driving, although it’s so very difficult to not swallow these elegant, refined wines. Seated tastings in a gazebo are also offered.” Read the full story HERE
