We never miss a visit to Martinelli. We’ve enjoyed two visits with our host, Tom, who is knowledgeable beyond his years.

Picnic Lunch Tasting, Weekend on 6/24/18 11:00 AM

It was our first wine tasting experience and it was beyond fabulous. We chose a private tasting followed by a lunch on the patio. We were fortunate to have a host that was passionate about what she does. Our questions were encouraged. We sampled some extraordinary wines and enjoyed a great tasting lunch. We would definitely go back and recommend Martinelli to anyone visiting the area.

This was the best of all of our Sonoma County tastings. Our host gave not only the family history of the winery but anecdotal stories about the individuals. That made much more personal. The wines we tasted were among the best they make and it was difficult to pick a favorite. Tucked away in the rear of the facility you could really get down to tasting these great wines.

We had the lunch outside on the picnic tables, and the lunches were very good, mine in particular. My husband thought his prosciutto sandwich was too salty. Our server (forgot his name) was knowledgeable and helpful and he gave us just the right amount of attention.

The Jackass Heritage Room - Private Tastings on 9/24/17 12:30 PM

The experience was more than 5 stars. We love Martinelli wines but after the tasting, we loved everything about the wine, the winery and the employees. Everyone was so friendly and knowledgeable. We were lucky enough to have Tom as our host. What a fantastic experience! We were in Sonoma and Napa for a total of 6 days and our Martinelli tasting was by far, our favorite experience.

My husband and I booked the VIP tasting based upon our desire to taste those wines. It was an amazing option! We loved so many of the wines. Loved the family history peppered throughout. We were very lucky to have Sara as our guide. She was wonderful! We left happy wine club members, plus our order!

This experience was just ok. Not a lot of information shared unless we asked. Didn't get much insight into the wines, the vineyard or the anything else. It didn't draw me in, the way that other vineyards and or tours have done.

Excellent array of wines tasted with good explanation of history of wine and winemaking at Martinelli, and current winemaking philosophy. Shared some excellent library wines. Cheese/nut accompaniment paired well. Accommodated shipping needs and scheduling for purchases.

Brandi was AWESOME! I loved the wines chosen and even the ones that after meeting our group, she decided to try some others based on our likes. This was extremely nice and made our experience even better. Brandi was knowledgeable about the wines and the history of the Martinelli family and we enjoyed the quaint, atmosphere and privacy of our wine tasting booked!

Did a private library tasting with Julianna Martinelli. We liked their wines prior to the tasting, but after spending two hours with her tasting wines and learning the history of Martinelli, I can't recommend it highly enough. Very gracious and hospitable family owned place!
