Nestled in the rolling hills of Sonoma County sits Foppiano Vineyards, a 160 acre family estate in the acclaimed Russian River Valley. Cool morning fog and warm summer days create the ideal microclimate for grapes and we've been growing the highest quality fruit here since 1896. Today, our winemaker specializes in five elegant varietals, including Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel and our signature bottling: the bold and opulent Petite Sirah.

Using the fruit of Foppiano's sprawling old vine vineyards, we have earned wide recognition year after year as one of the country’s top producers of Petite Sirah. Tastings of our current releases are available in our tasting room and we encourage you to try our award winning Petite Sirahs.

During your visit, we hope you will take advantage of our picnic area, enabling you to see our vines up close while sipping on a glass of wine. The simplicity of nature creates a serene setting where you and your family and friends are welcome to enjoy wine, indulge in a picnic or catch a sunset over our western facing vineyards.

Great setting with casual atmosphere and a fun very knowledgeable wine enthusiast pouring some of best Chardonnays I have tasted.

It turned out to be a private tasting for my husband and me. Jonathan was so personable and very knowledgeable. He really made it a fun experience. We loved that it's a working, family vineyard and really liked learning about the history of Foppianio. To top it off, the wines are well structured and so very drinkable. We joined the wine club, of course!

We signed up for an estate tour but when we arrived were told that there were no tours that day. The young man on staff could care less. We stayed for a lackluster tasting. Very disappointing.

Friendly service; great wine; good location. Definitely worthwhile. We had the cheese and wine flight and our host was generous with the serving size of cheese.

It was our first visit to a vineyard and Jonathan made us feel at home and at ease. He was very knowledgeable about Foppiano, the area and wine in general. It was obvious that he loves his job and that enthusiasm was a key part of our having a great time.

Week long visit with husband for our birthdays (51 and 53). We visited 19 wineries and Foppiano came as a recommendation of a "small" winery. The cheese plate was fabulous. The slow and comfortable feel was relaxing and the wines were spectacular! We even met the husband and wife owners as they were wrapping up harvest. We joined the club and can't wait for our first shipment!

We chose Foppiano vineyards because of my personal ties & we wanted something different from "Napa". Jonathan guided us through the vineyards and the winery, providing wonderful insight and history of the Foppiano product. During the tastings, Jonathan interacted with us, answered all of our questions and proved his knowledge and commitment to Foppiano Vineyards. It was a fantastic experience!!

We visited 3 wineries that day. This was the least famous of the 3 and by far the best experience. Jonathan was great. We joined the wine club and look forward to the wines and another visit. Almost hate to share this great place with others. Haha
