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.

Great spot located on a knoll overlooking vineyards and snow capped mountains in the distance. We tasted the sparkling series of wines, but you can also choose to taste chard’s or pinots. You can choose to taste inside the barn or outside overlooking the valley. Both have advantages. The barn is warm and dry but no view - although you can take your glasses out for the views at any point

We are members at Iron Horse and wanted to share this experience with family who came to visit from out of town. They view from the winery is amazing but the hospitality was disappointing. The host would not engage with us nor would he describe the wines to our guests. Even the guests mentioned how aloof they were.

Iron Horse Vineyards is a pretty solid bubble producer that should be visited if you are in the Green Valley area of the Russian River. We enjoyed a bubble flight with Arianna, who was extremely enthusiastic about the wines, even though it was a steadily rainy day. We truly enjoyed the sparklers while overlooking the vineyards.

The wine was terrific, amazing sparkling. The location is stunning and lovely at the same time. Two of the three employee's were a bit standoffish and cold. I felt like I was somehow wasting their time from the moment we arrived. Had a good time chatting with some of the other guests and the information provided about the wine was great.

I've been fortunate enough to visit Iron Horse a number of times - often bringing visiting friends who have not yet experienced the wines/winery. This visit was one of those cases. It was a perfect blue sky kind of day, it wasn't crowded, and so we got a lot of attention from the gentleman serving our tasting - lots of history and insight and fun facts. It was fantastic. My friend loved it too.

Everything was great. The rating for the 3 stars on first impression is because we bounced around the tasting bar after being told to go to three different areas. Not a big deal, they were busy, everything else was amazing, from wines, hospitality and scenery.

I’ve been a wine club member for many years and have only visited twice. I’m glad I called ahead I didn’t realize it was reservation only as I was told on the phone. When we arrived that didn’t seem to make a difference walk ins were welcomed? Our wine expert was fabulous he gave us the royal wine experience and some tasting notes. We walked away with a few bottles and it was a lovely day.
