We invite you to come and be our guest at our Sonoma tasting room and winemaking facility in Santa Rosa, California.

We offer two unique tasting experiences for our guests:
The Donelan Portfolio Tasting ($30 per person; fee waived with 3 bottle purchase per person) - 60 minutes
Guests will experience a flight of four current release wines. This tasting focuses on a cross-section of the wines we produce, highlighting the skill of our winemaker in crafting wines blended from some of our favorite vineyard sites.

The "Road Less Traveled" Reserve Tasting ($50 per person; fee waived with 6 bottle purchase per person) - 60-75 minutes
Guests will experience a flight of six current release wines. This tasting focuses on our most limited production wines, including many of our highly-rated single vineyard wines, allowing guests to experience excellence from some of the prime vineyard sites in Sonoma County.

We have elected to prize quality over all other factors. Simply put, we think wine should taste great — with every vintage and every grape, this is our ultimate priority and our greatest motivation.

We believe that the best wines are not made but discovered, and we look forward to sharing our discoveries with you.
