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 and the Barrel Tour and Tasting is 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 me made for non-drinking guests at the time of visit).

It’s such a magical experience in that you drive behind a school at first and then when you approach the gates, they open to a picturesque piece of property. You can’t beat this kind of service, the selection of wines, and the views. We’ve gone two years in a row, we’re members and we will keep coming back every year

We were very impressed with the vineyard, winery and, of course, the wine. We were met by Jacki who welcomed us, explained what she planned and offered us a very nice glass of white. Jacki proved to be very knowledgeable about the whole process and gave us a hands-on tour of the operation. We were already wine club members but had never actually visited.

I have experienced many wine tastings at vineyards and this one truly is a step above. The two hours were educational and I got to taste some of the most exquisite wines! This is a “must do” experience. It is worth the $45. The wines are paired perfectly with the cheeses and other small snacks served.

This winery is gorgeous, its small and quaint and we liked the wines. Our guide/host was very friendly and conversational - but the attention to detail was lacking. Our booklets had a welcome letter to someone else from almost 3 weeks earlier. And when our friends signed up for the club - they didnt discount our whole groups tasting fees. Overall we recommend though.

We've been on quite a few wine tours/tastings and Lasseter was probably the most enjoyable tour that we've done. The personal touches that they go out of their way to implore, such as the sign and tasting menu with your name on them really add to the experience and make you feel special. The property is absolutely gorgeous and the history is entertaining, but our guide, Richard, stole the show.

Our host Brianna was very knowledgeable about the varieties and processes. The way the tour “flowed” with tastings before the vineyard tour and then one in the barrel room was nice. The sit down part of the tour was set in a very comfortable room and the parings were fantastic! Wines were delicious and the local cheeses yummy! I will definitely return for another experience and bring some friends
