About Fort Ross Vineyard Tasting Room

Fort Ross Vineyard is the first and only vineyard tasting room along the majestic Sonoma Coast in the Fort Ross-Seaview AVA.

Read More

The Tasting Room offers Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinotage, all made from grapes grown exclusively on the Fort Ross Vineyard Estate. Special events will be held by invitation only for members of the Fort Ross Wine Club.

The Tasting Room, designed in the vernacular of the rustic barns that dot Sonoma County, has a steep roof made from corrugated Corten steel oxidized to an earthy hue with three cupolas perched on the top. Adjoining the main building is a classic tall water tower that houses the stairs leading to the cellar below and the offices above. The shingles that cover the walls of the building are reddish brown and mirror the bark of the surrounding Madrone trees. In front of the building is a long wooden pergola that is planted with heirloom climbing roses. The garden is filled with swaying grasses and the driveway travels around a circular stone wall that delineates a Botanical garden that is being planted with Proteas.

From the Tasting Room there are panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean framed by tall Redwood forests and golden meadows.

This is just an incredible wine country location, on top of a coastal Sonoma mountain in the pines with a beautiful view of the fog below you in the canyons leading to the ocean. Outside patio was fantastic, with fresh air and great scenery, and wines were wonderful. It is worth the drive from central Sonoma areas, and I highly recommend lunch or dinner nearby at The Rivers End in Jenner.

This was everything we wanted from a wine tasting experience. The local was lovely, the wine tasty, and Brett our host could not have been more charming. This was a splurge for us and we were not disappointed.

Wow... The best view and with great wine... It can be tough to get both, but not here. Very very deliciously rare Chardonnay at Fort Ross. Reds that will make you want more for sure! The altitude vs the fog line does some special things to the grapes. Soooooo worth the drive. You'll be glad you did.
