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 21 to 87 years old.

I loved the setting: the new tasting areas, the umbrellas making things festive, our wonderful hostess, and meeting several new people. Of course, having Joy walk us through the experience pushed the whole thing over the edge. The different vintages, the various sparkling wines, their labels, the view, the peaches what else could we ask for?.....to live closer? A smile on my lips,, ah Iron Horse

Iron Horse is one of the premier tasting experiences in Sonoma County. Breathtaking outdoor wine bar. Great views of the vineyards and valley. You are greeted upon arrival and checked in. They tell you right where to go. The wine stewards are friendly, knowledgeable, and entertaining. Fantastic sparkling and still wines

This was probably our 5ht or 6th visit. First time at the tables near the parking lot. Not nearly as intimate or as exciting as tasting near the bar. Missed the banter with the pourers, as ours was bouncing from table to table, and missed the view from in front of the benches.

We had a fantastic tasting with Carl! I brought 2 BFF's and it was the perfect spot. I was hesitant about the reservation system. I have been to this winery before and never had to make a reservation. But it is a perfect set up. We were graciously greeted by the concierge, handed over to Carl- and has his full attention the entire time. I highly recommend this experience!

Winemaker Vineyard Truck Tour on 6/12/17 10:00 AM

If you want to understand how the wine making process works from the soil, to vines all the way through the process to your glass this is the tour for you. David was a great host and I cant imagine a better person to learn from. My only negative is that they sent me a coupon saying all wines were 20% off in June after I left. All that did was frustrate me. Ask for a discount...

Beautiful vineyard on top of a hill with a great view of the valley. **It's a bit tough to get to, but it's worth it!** I don't generally drink sparkling wine - I enjoy it but don't choose it. Their wine is great though, and the location is fantastic. **Plus they comp your tasting with a wine purchase!** If you like bubbly or just wine tastings, check it out!
