Iron Horse is one of the most beautiful vineyards in Sonoma County: a series of gentle rolling hills stitched together by rows of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, blanketed by a misting of morning fog. Venture to the Tasting Room at the top of the hill. There’s often a rainbow when the sun breaches the mist. It’s hard not to feel optimistic when you see Iron Horse – the visual equivalent of opening a bottle of Sparkling Wine, which conveniently there are plenty to enjoy. The pillar of Iron Horse’s prestige is that their bubblies have been served at the White House for five consecutive Presidential Administrations, beginning with the Reagan-Gorbachev Summit meetings, ending the Cold War. Few Sparklings outside Champagne have the depth of character achieved at Iron Horse. The logo, the rampant horse on a weather vane, came from a 19th century weathervane found while clearing away the rubble during construction. The first vintage of Estate Chardonnay was produced in 1978. 1979 marked the first vintage of Estate Pinot Noir and the official opening of the winery. The first Sparkling Wines were vintage 1980. Three generations live on the property ranging from 19 to 84 years old.

V.I.P. Tour & Tasting on 3/28/16 10:00 AM

We thought that we might have taken a wrong turn as we headed down the road to the winery...especially when we saw the "no outlet" sign, but we were very pleasantly surprised. We were early, and were not sure of where to go for the tasting area. When we walked over, where a server was just setting out bottles, we were greeted with big smiles. Loved the VIP wine tour, as we learned a lot!

This is a great tour for anyone who wants to learn more about the art of winemaking. David is very knowledgable and passionate about his craft. The making of sparkling wines is very interesting and the cuvees were fabulous. And, to top it off, the setting is absolutely beautiful.

This was my favorite tour! The staff were fun, engaging and accommodating. You can't beat the bubbly that's for sure and to be able to taste the many types were a treat! We loved the tour, seeing the processes and how it all works. The view was breathtaking! The only thing that would have made it better is Joy Sterling being there, but I guess somebody had to work! :-)

I have always enjoyed tasting these sparkling wines at restaurants and events but was very disappointed by the hospitality experience. Although it was a busy day, it would've been nice to have been greeted by a host and given an explanation about the wines and the winery. No need to book an appointment. The wines are good but the hospitality could use some improvement. Views are gorgeous!

My husband and I are wine club members with Iron Horse and came out with a group of 8 to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. Our group all did tastings and we arrived to a champagne (sparkling wine) toast to celebrate. Great hospitality, great view, wonderful wine!

Beautiful setting, with very genuine and engaged hostess. I understand why Iron Horse was recommended by everyone from the guy who sat next to me on the plane from Paris, to the marketing director of Michelin. Superb experience, great sparkling wines (being french we are champagne snobs). Go there, take it all in ...and enjoy one of the best vineyard tours of the region.
