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 enjoyed our visit, the place was very nice but there are 2 things that I think could be improved: 1) change glasses between red and white wine (they were changed from still to sparkling) 2) having some savory snacks to reset palate between wines.

We already knew we loved the Wedding Cuvee, but from the moment we arrived until we sipped our final flute of sparkling, we were filled with the beauty of Iron Horse Vineyards. Simply tasting this sparkling wine is enough to bring a smile to your face, but if you have the opportunity to visit in person, you will not regret it. Five star service at a five star location.

A perfectly lovely experience. The sun came out as we arrived and looking out onto that view with a glass of wine in hand was fantastic. I didn't see any picnic tables and that would be a nice addition. Seemed like standing tastings only and almost all outdoor which would have been chilly had the sun not come out. They do have heat lamps. Our pourer was an MBA (!) and was knowledgeable & friendly.

Gorgeous property and views. The wine was great, but the experience the staff gave us far exceeded our expectations. Kevin was a complete goof. We weren't quite sure what to expect after meeting him!

It was busy because it was Wine Road weekend... should have remembered that and rescheduled. I get that Iron Horse wants to make the "experience" great but it's getting a bit pompous. Love the pourers and love the wine. It's just the check in, set up, wait to be wowed feeling... Still an amazing view, very good wine and nice people

I have been to Iron Horse several times, and it never disappoints. The staff is always friendly, welcoming, and happy to answer all/any questions you may have! The setting is gorgeous, with a beautiful view of their vineyards sloping down the hillside. And of course, the wines are absolutely amazing. My personal favorites are the sparkling wines, but all are beautifully crafted and a true delight.

THE setting was beautiful and the sparking flight was great. Our tasting server was also great. What ruined the entire experience was a lady named Lisa. Not sure if she is the manager, but upon our arrival we were greeted with what seemed to be annoyance that we were even there. She was extremely cold and rude. I have never had such bad customer service. She was completely unaccomodating.

The beautiful views make it that much harder to leave. I eagerly await my next visit, but I’m happy to say that I won’t have to wait too long to enjoy the wine; I just couldn’t resist joining the bubbly club.

Love the tasting environment outdoors and overlooking the vineyards. None of the other wineries we visited offered that kind of experience. Didn’t hurt that the wines were GREAT. We were looking for a new spot for pinot’s, whites and sparkling wine and you deliver. Iron Horse will be a regular stop when we are looking to restock the cellar. We tasted with Katie. She did a fantastic job. Well done.

Each year, we visit Iron Horse first thing in the morning to start the Russian River Valley area tasting day with top tier champagne, gorgeous views, and (very important) a great staff. Their champagnes never disappoint. Make Iron Horse one of your important Wine Country Memories!
