About Iron Horse Vineyards

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.

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.

The road to the winery definitely needs some repairs and the parking was a little sketchy, but once we made to the outdoor tasting area it was outstanding. Kevin was a gracious host. He apologized that he couldn't take us on our scheduled tour due to maintenance taking place on the property; however, he was gracious with his time and knowledge. The pours were also generous!

We were greeted right away as we walked up and directed into the barrell room as the air conditions outside were unhealthy. Our server made us feel as though we were family and took his time with us. The wine was, as always, delicious. The expeirnce left all 6 of us talking about what a great time we had and how we bought a lot more than we had intended upon arrival, and how happy we were.

Quaint and relaxing. Ambiance is not flashy but yet calming and the rolling vineyards are beautiful. Each time we visit our hosts have always been engaging and want our experience to turn into a memory. We always look forward to our next visit. The sparkling wine is excellent and can see why many in the valley recommend Ironhorse. The Pinot Noir is so good.

Our host was rude and did not attend to us well. We were a group of 12 girls this past Saturday. I asked him about a tasting with a view and he gave me a very evasive answer. I asked him if we would taste outside since the reservation said “tasting with a view” and he said “yea I thought so but no”. That’s it. Then he didn’t come to pour our wines for 20 mins. He refused to split our bill as well.

Don't be discouraged by your initial impression. This is a bare bones operation, but the history and quality of the sparkling is exceptional. No frills, just excellent Champagne and sparkling wines made onsite. The tour is very good and our host, Carl, was truly excellent. This is a laid back, relaxed environment. Jeans & comfortable shoes and you'll feel right at home here.

I run a food tour business in Sebastopol and when I recommend local wineries for my guests to visit, this is always the first on the list. I went recently with family as part of a birthday celebration. Even on a smoky day (due to the fire in Butte County) we enjoyed the beautiful views, and of course all the wines were wonderful! Definitely a must-do when visiting West Sonoma County!
