Join us at our beautiful estate in the Sonoma Valley for a behind the scenes look at the Art of Winemaking and the passion that John and Nancy Lasseter have brought to the challenge of producing world class wines. The Lasseter Family’s love of old-world style blended wines inspired them to begin revitalizing these historic vineyards in 2002 and their commitment is evident from the moment you drive thru our front gate and gaze upon the sweeping vista of meticulously maintained vineyards.

Throughout your visit, you’ll see how the Lasseter’s zest for living and love of storytelling is evident in every detail – From the series of original label art commissioned by local artist Dennis Ziemienski thru to the balanced & harmonious wines created by our winemaking team.

Our Proprietors Tour, Vineyard Tour and Tasting and the Barrel Tour and Tasting are open to guests 21 years of age and older on Saturday and Sunday. Guests of all ages are invited to visit Monday thru Friday. When making your reservation, please reserve for the total of your entire party, including those guests who will not be tasting wine - Failure to do so means a seat will not be reserved for the non-tasters (reduction of the total tasting fees will be made for non-drinking guests at the time of visit).

We're excited to announce the debut of our Compass Circle Patio tasting! Join us outdoors for a curated flight of Lasseter wines, or relax with a glass or two - Available April thru October. Please note, the cost of the patio tasting varies depending on your experience. Wine flights (Our 5 wine "Front Porch Flight) are $25, wines by the glass (5oz) begin at $8 each. Cheese and Charcuterie boards are also available on the patio, please indicate in your reservation notes if you would like us to have one ready for you and your party. FYI, the Cheese and Charcuterie boards are portioned for two guests to share, and are $25 each. Groups of 8 or fewer can book through Cellarpass.

We were met by our host on the path to the winery from our car. We had a lovely chat with Rose on the porch and then proceeded to the cellars where we learned more, sampled another wine and took pictures. Then we went to the Board Room for an amazing pairing of cheeses and red wines. The wines, the artistic labels, the ambiance and our host were all spectacular! Definitely recommend this winery!!

It was a beautiful day in wine country! I was so proud to share Lasseter Family Winery with my out-of-town sorority sisters. They personalized our visit with a welcome sign and with the menu at our seat when we tasted the wine & food pairing. My friends were so impressed and loved the wine- almost as much I do! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

We learned so much from this tour, we'd highly recommend it to anyone. Even better, the wines are not your typical Sonoma/Napa tasting wines.

Our first experience with Lasseter wines was in March 2019, when we stayed at the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa, and Lasseter poured their wines for the daily afternoon complimentary tasting. We loved the wines we tasted, so booked a tour/tasting a few months later. We were bowled over by the setting, hospitality, wines, and perfect food pairings. We joined the wine club immediately!
