Donelan Family Wines Reviews
Reviews provided by fellow guests with verified visit
Donelan is the best kept secret in Sonoma County. The crush facility and tasting room is off the beaten path but that keeps the usual crowds away which is a bonus. The wines top to bottom are outstanding and show great care from the vineyard to the bottle. This is our third visit and we keep coming back because of the wines' consistent quality, and the Donelan family's warm hospitality.
Great tasting and discussion about the grapes/wines/vineyards. James was our host and he was very informative and easy to work with! The group did an awesome job and the wines are delish!!
Donelan always treats us very well with their tasting. Their wines are nice big bold red, which we love.
We loved our tasting at Donelan Family Wines. James was a great host and we got to taste a wide variety of amazing wines. We walked out with quite a few bottles to take home and enjoy. We were also very surprised to receive a handwritten note in the mail from Joe Donelan, along with a customized Donelan wine bottle opener. We will definitely be back, their wines and customer service is top notch!
It was a lovely visit with James, and the wine was outstanding.
Made online reservations late on Saturday afternoon for Sunday at 10am and was pleasantly surprised that a time was available on a holiday weekend. The winery is in an industrial center and was met by James. Amazingly our names were printed on the tasting agenda. James spent over 2 hours with us sampling some excellent wines. I purchased 6 bottles to start. Highly recommend this winery.
Everything about the tasting was fantastic. From the wines, cheese and meats, to the glassware and beyond! James did an excellent job walking us through the tasting of their award winning wines.
James works the room with great personality and makes you feel his investment and belief in the wines he pours. And the wines are elite. Outstanding stuff.
What a FANTASTIC one-hour tasting. James could not have been more knowledgeable or amiable. And the wine was SUPERB. I purchased 6 bottles and am strongly considering joining the club. When you first arrive thru new residential housing projects and come upon this industrial park where the tasting room is located it is a little off putting but once inside it all changes!!!
We had such an amazing experience at Donelan. In addition to their Syrahs being the best wines we tasted during our time in Napa, James was incredibly knowledgeable and personable. He taught us so much about their wines and the care and detail that goes into making each bottle. We cannot wait to order more wines and come back to visit!
