At INMAN FAMILY WINES, our focus is on small lots of wine made from impeccably grown sustainable Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and Chardonnay grapes in Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast.

When you visit Inman Family, you will have a superior experience, of light and reverence, of soil and soul, present in the natural landscape. You will taste character and simple elegance in the way the aromas of the land infuse the grapes. Every glass tells a story; it is the story of the resonant beauty that abounds.

For visitors with electric vehicles, we have Sonoma County's first privately owned public charging station! Drawing from the electricity produced by our solar panels, visitors fill-up their vehicles on sunshine while tasting our Russian River Valley wines. This service is free of charge.

Located at the junction of Olivet and Piner Roads, the tasting room is open Thursday - Monday from 11am-4pm for wine sales. We have recently moved to appointments only for wine tastings to ensure all of our guests have personalized tasting experiences. Tasting appointments are available Thursday - Monday at 11:00am, 12:30pm and 2:00pm.

The fee of $20 per person is waived with a minimum purchase of $100 per person. A private tasting and vineyard tour with winemaker and owner Kathleen Inman is also available by appointment subject to Mrs. Inman's availability. Meet the Maker fees are $35 per person and are also waived with a minimum purchase of $150. Tasting is complimentary for Inman Family Wine Club Members and up to 4 guests.

Please, no outside food.

Heard about this winery via a podcast and so glad we visited. Beautiful boutique winery with really lovely wines. Immediately felt welcomed with a sign welcoming us. We had 'warned' them we had a toddler in tow and they held our tasting outside to accommodate us all easier. Kathleen is so lovely and I really enjoyed hearing about her winemaking and learned a few new things too.

A very enjoyable experience. It was a private tasting with Kathleen Inman, and you can fell the family atmosphere of the small winery. She opened up a lot of bottles for us, and told us some great stories behind the wine. I joined the club, as the Rose and bubbles wine were awesome.

It was fantastic to meet Kathleen Inman, and for her to spend time with us sharing the passion she has for her winery. The wines were excellent across the board from the whites to the reds to the bubbles. The natural approach to making the wines makes them unique and extra special.

From the first moment, seeing a chalkboard sign welcoming us by name, through the last drop of sparkling wine that Kathleen decided to let us taste since we were having so much fun, our visit to Inman Family was a memorable experience. The great variety of wonderful wine was actually surpassed by the hospitality we received from the winemaker herself.

Inman is still a hidden gem. The tasting room is a quaint unassuming barn, and the vineyard on premise isn't a sprawling forest like so many vineyards in the area. However, the winemaker has spun some of the best Pinot Noir coming out of napa, and arguably the best Rose and Brut Rose. Do the meet the winemaker tasting. Kathleen is awesome, and her stories enhance what are already fantastic wines.

I was greeted very warmly by Kathleen, who welcomed me by name. We tasted her wines in a lovely room complete with maps so that she was able to show me where some of her grapes are sourced from. The wines were excellent. The only thing I would have appreciated is a brief tour of the property. It looked gorgeous and I really would have liked the opportunity to see the vineyard.

One can admire her knowledge of viticulture and her enthusiasm for the wines she produces. The setting is intimate, relaxed and having some basic information of how her various wines are created is helpful.

We visited Inman Family Winery after meeting Kathleen Inman a few months ago in Atlanta. This was our second trip to the Napa / Sonoma area, so I feel we have a pretty good reference point for our experience. The wine tasting was in a lovely, relaxed, intimate setting in the vineyard. Kathleen is extremely knowledgeable and friendly and she obviously enjoys her craft. Highly recommend!

We knew from past experience that we like the wine and we appreciate patronizing a woman-owned business. This time we were impressed with all of their environmentally-friendly and sustainable business and farming practices. The private tasting was great: welcoming, friendly, intimate. These are good people. Don't expect gorgeous views; expect well-made wines in a pleasant little tasting room.

The wine is exceptional and the winemaker/owner, Kathleen Inman, wears many hats all through the day. Kathleen was our tasting room host in between scrubbing the press and checking on her fermenting Zinfandel. This is a small family operation but the true love of the wine comes through in the exquisite Pinots. Can't wait to go back and see them again!
