About Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards

The wines of Gloria Ferrer are made for those times when everything just comes together. The stunning winery at Gloria Ferrer was created to help you experience just that kind of moment.

Read More

Back in the early 80’s there were only a handful of winegrowers planting Pinot Noir in Carneros. And yet, the Ferrer Family knew the key to a world-class méthode champenoise wine would be Pinot Noir.

The Gloria Ferrer winemaking team’s quest for perfection takes them to Champagne where they manage to acquire Pinot Noir and Chardonnay clones.

Gloria Ferrer is not only the first sparkling wine house in Sonoma Carneros, but also the first to plant Champagne clones and the first to plant in Carneros.

Almost thirty years later, with 335 acres under vine, the estate vineyards at Gloria Ferrer produce Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that rival some of the world’s finest.

Gloria's Wine Country Picnic on 7/30/18 12:00 PM

We did the Gloria Ferrer picnic and it was lovely! We sat up above the terrace and we were the only ones there. The view was beautiful and we enjoyed a yummy lunch! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a lunch experience at a winery. The picnic requires an additional purchase of 1 bottle per couple. It was great!

Taste of Spain on 7/18/18 2:00 PM

Everyone was so polite and accommodating when we arrived 20 minutes late. (My mistake with the the timing of our tour) Jesse was our guide and not only did we learn about wine but she was extremely personable. She gave us plenty of time to finish our tasting without rush. We paid for the Taste of Spain tour which is great for beginners or anyone with a well rounded wine palette.

Bubbles & Bites on 7/18/18 12:00 PM

Bubbles and Bites - the food was outstanding! It was right up there with St. Francis Winery. We met the cook at the beginning. I wish we would have thanked her after we ate her delicious creations. From the moment we walked in, the outgoing host gave us a glass (decent pour) of champagne. Jessie did a great job of explaining the champagnes, and your champagnes were excellent!

We had such a great experience. We participated in the glassware exploration which was so different than any other vineyard offered. We learned so much, and we were able to taste other wines that weren’t included which helped us decide what to add to our orders. Our tour guide was excellent and really provided us with a wealth of knowledge.

We had a great time at Bubbles and Bites. The sparkling wine and estate still wine were very well chosen and paired very well with our bites. The bites themselves were very easy finger food as well as delicious. Jose was a great educator on the wine and the facilities, answering all our questions on wine and the wine-making process with ease.

We booked the Bubbles and Bites tour experience specifically to tour one of the caves. The only cave we got to see is no longer used for wine, only rented out for events and you only view it from a balcony for a minute. The rest of the tour was insulting. There was a private tasting so we were told to be silent as we were quickly ushered through production without any lights on to see anything.

Our Bubbles & Bites experience at Gloria Ferrer Caves and Vineyards was a nice experience. The sparkling wines and bites were delicious and well paired. However, we were very disappointed that our wine cave tour only consisted of looking down upon empty barrels at the beginning of the tunnel. This tour is listed and advertised as an actual wine cave tour, which it was not.

Bubbles and bites tasting was not as described. Did not get a tour or any history on the Ferrer family or champagne making process. Felt rushed through the tasting. After tasting we sat on patio but we’re not tended to by any wait staff until I went inside to let them know I wanted to order something after about 20 minutes of sitting there.

Chose the Bites and bubbles option. The tour only involved little more than watching a short video. The food was fine and most of the wine was good. Didn't think much of it actually paired exceptionally well. Server was very generous, but presumed the gratuity would be based upon total wine purchased not just the tasting. The elevated experience included lots and lots of flies.

The vineyard and building are beautiful and the staff is wonderful. We did the bubbles & bites and then retreated to the patio afterwards. The overall experience was great. Jessi was an amazing host that made you feel right at home the entire time. So much so we came back to see her a few days later and do it again. We met lots of friendly people who have also made Gloria their home away home.

I visited couple times before and loved it. This visit was a special occasion and it was rather disappointing. Didn't feel welcome, a rather cold greeting, very long wait times for menu, then for wine, then for snacks we ordered. Then was shown an ipod to sign the bill I didn't even see - I got it emailed later.

From the outset, we were treated by a helpful, cheerful and professional staff, and not even the rain could dampen our spirits! Our picnic moved indoors to a spectacular room, views, and the setting was lovely, but not half as lovely as our server, Cecilia. She was AWESOME! Professional, charming, engaging. The food was great, but it was the incredibly attentive staff that won us over!

We purchased the Bites and Bubbles tasting and it was fantastic. We arrived an hour early and they set us up to taste outside on the patio with some snacks to wait. The view is phenomenal! Our tasting ended up private as it was the off season and both the wine and food was perfect. Our staff member also gave us great recommendations for dinner and local hang outs.

Bubbles & Bites on 2/10/18 10:00 AM

We booked this experience online - it was advertised as a private tour of the winery followed by tasting (champagne and bites). We arrived and never received a tour. We were seated in a beautiful room but had to wait for 20 min for cold bites and then finally champagne was poured. Let me say the wine/champagne is amazing and we have been fans of the product for years but the bites were mediocre.

I’m a member at Ferrer. I made reservations in advance for Bubbles & Bites for myself and four friends. I was never told that we would be sharing the experience with a larger party of people, let alone others who were new to the winery. In the past, I’ve always received excellent service in an intimate environment. Now it feels commercial. I will likely cease membership. Don’t go.

The vineyard was beautiful and the wines were delicious- we did a Taste of Spain and had some great Spanish wines! The outdoor patio was beautiful, but there were a lot of flies everywhere, so that was a bit off-putting. Also, we bought an entire CASE of wine, and our tasting fee wasn't even discounted- at the other vineyards we actually got a free tasting. Did they not appreciate our business?

I easily could have spent 3-4 hours more just simply ordering wine, eating tasty snacks and staring off into the outstanding view. It truly has gorgeous scenery.
