A 40-foot sculpture of little red wagons, and a wall crafted from the soil of four distinct vineyards, set the tone for the MacPhail Tasting Lounge, where limited release, vineyard designate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are presented in a truly unique environment where everything is recycled, reclaimed or repurposed. Each MacPhail wine is crafted by nature, and nurtured by hand to allow the full expression of the vineyard to grace your glass. A variety of tasting flights featuring wines from the Sonoma Coast, Russian River Valley and Anderson Valley are available in seated tastings or by the glass or bottle, to be enjoyed, perhaps, with selections from a featured local artisan cheesemonger. Relax on the patio and join in the conversation about what makes MacPhail, the Barlow and Sonoma County so very unique. And the wagon sculpture? There’s a story waiting to be told.

We had a wonderful time at the MacPhail tasting room and ended up becoming members. Searching for some great Pinot Noirs can be a challenge, but not at MacPhail, where they have breadth and depth to offer. Brad was excellent, and led us in a sit down terroir tasting with the "soil wall", adjusting the tasting to our needs.

The Terroir tasting at McPhail was very interesting. It's fascinating to see how little micro climates, vintage years, and fog cans affect the taste of the wine. I loved it.

I believe that we had the terroir tasting. 6 wines total. We honestly did not like the wines and the cost for the tasting was not comparable to other wineries but we still wanted to try the wines because we were in the area. Our host was great and the atmosphere was relaxed. My review is not biased by the price of the tasting but simply that the wines were not my style

We began our experience with a lovely Chardonnay while we were introduced to our guide, Brad. We then proceeded to the breathtaking vineyard for a pleasant informative and educational tour of the grape growing process. We ended the tour back at the Barlow tasting room, for some exceptional wine paired with amazing cheese and charcuterie. Excellent educational experience!

Elena and Gail treated us like royalty. After a flight cancellation and delay, we missed our scheduled tasting. Not only did they give us a mini tasting but they invited us back the next day for a more formal sit down. They made our one year anniversary trip so worth it. We feel like a part of the MacPhail family and we are bringing home a whole case to prove it!

What a wonderful experience my husband and I had at the Terroir Tasting at MacPahil Family Wines! Lauren, our hostess, had our tasting set up in a cozy corner next to the soil wall. It was very interesting to see the cross section of the actual terroir to help understand how wines from different vineyards take on characteristics of the site. Lauren was knowledgeable and the wines were wonderful!

Our group of 4 really enjoyed our tasting at the MacPhail tasting room. We had our own, comfortable, semi-secluded nook for the tasting. Our hostess did a great job telling us about the wines and answering our questions, and giving us the time to privately chat while we were tasting. The wines were excellent and clearly showed the distinction between the different source vineyard sites.

Was initially excited to see the vineyard. I know at MacPhail we have real farmers that truly care. Not just about the consumers but the juice they produce. We were very enthusiastic to see where the magic happens. After our guide explained life on the vineyard / maintaining family vs business , we understood the circumstances. Our guide went above and beyond. Pleasure to have the the experience!

Very cool vibe. It's in the middle of The Barlow, a warehouse type district with shops and restaurants. We were welcomed and seated in a perfect area for our party of 4. The cheese plate is great, but I would order 2 for 4 people. We were treated to great wines and a friendly host. Definitely a worthwhile stop for good pinot and chardonnay.

All I can say is make the trip ASAP and enjoy great wine and wonderful hospitality. You will be hard pressed to find a better wine tasting experience in Sonoma county.

Kim studied our past purchases in advance and had an excellent plan of what to taste. Based on our comments during the tasting, additional wines were sampled. For 6 years my wife and I have spent 8 days in Napa-Sonoma visiting about 16 wineries. We both agreed that the MacPhail tasting was the best organized one of all. We learned about our taste preferences from balance to fruit and more.

A very funky setting in a very funky place. Bright and open, with a friendly and knowledgeable staff that enjoys sharing their products, and then diving into deeper detail once a preference becomes apparent. Really high end wines, and the selection of single vineyard Pinots is a testament to the affable mad scientist part of James MacPhail's make up. And extra props for being dog-friendly.
