Iron Horse is one of the most beautiful vineyards in Sonoma County: a series of gentle rolling hills stitched together by rows of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, blanketed by a misting of morning fog. Venture to the Tasting Room at the top of the hill. There’s often a rainbow when the sun breaches the mist.

It’s hard not to feel optimistic when you see Iron Horse – the visual equivalent of opening a bottle of Sparkling Wine, which conveniently there are plenty to enjoy. The pillar of Iron Horse’s prestige is that their bubblies have been served at the White House for five consecutive Presidential Administrations, beginning with the Reagan-Gorbachev Summit meetings, ending the Cold War. Few Sparklings outside Champagne have the depth of character achieved at Iron Horse.

The logo, the rampant horse on a weather vane, came from a 19th century weathervane found while clearing away the rubble during construction. The first vintage of Estate Chardonnay was produced in 1978. 1979 marked the first vintage of Estate Pinot Noir and the official opening of the winery. The first Sparkling Wines were vintage 1980.

Three generations live on the property ranging from 21 to 87 years old.

Iron Horse has done a great job adapting to the amount of daily visitors they get. Being by appointment on the weekends allows you to get one on one time with your host and really enjoy your tasting. Everyone is always very friendly and helpful. I will return time and time again.

We had a fantastic tasting with Carl! I brought 2 BFF's and it was the perfect spot. I was hesitant about the reservation system. I have been to this winery before and never had to make a reservation. But it is a perfect set up. We were graciously greeted by the concierge, handed over to Carl- and has his full attention the entire time. I highly recommend this experience!

Winemaker Vineyard Truck Tour on 6/12/17 10:00 AM

If you want to understand how the wine making process works from the soil, to vines all the way through the process to your glass this is the tour for you. David was a great host and I cant imagine a better person to learn from. My only negative is that they sent me a coupon saying all wines were 20% off in June after I left. All that did was frustrate me. Ask for a discount...

Beautiful vineyard on top of a hill with a great view of the valley. **It's a bit tough to get to, but it's worth it!** I don't generally drink sparkling wine - I enjoy it but don't choose it. Their wine is great though, and the location is fantastic. **Plus they comp your tasting with a wine purchase!** If you like bubbly or just wine tastings, check it out!

We did the VIP Tour & Tasting with Ariana. She congratulated us immediately (we'd just gotten engaged) and welcomed us into the group with open arms. While the VIP Tour was extremely detailed and technical (loved!), Ariana kept our group upbeat and the conversation light and fun. We were also very lucky to have such a wonderful group with us. Everyone asked great questions and we learned a lot!

I especially enjoyed the Sunday with the Oyster Girls. They provided a delicious treat to pair with the beverages.

Carl was quite knowledgable and told us a lot about the whole sparkling wine process. We learned a lot. It was especially interesting to visit the production room to see the disgorging in process, along with the corking, etc. Love this tour! I plan to take other out-of-town friends, and I always LOVE going to Iron Horse for tastings. Thank you!

The wines are consistently delicious. The only blemish was that I had signed my group up for the VIP tour and tasting but didn't get that and weren't told why. Instead we tasted five great sparkling wines so the experience was very good but had I known we weren't going to get the tour after all, I would have taken my group elsewhere.

We are from the Midwest and had never been to Sonoma County before. Our friends insisted we come here as they had been wine club members for years and raved about the champagne. We were very happy we listened to them! The location was absolutely lovely, and our host was very good about answering all of our questions, even "why are there rose bushes along the vines?" Delicious champagne!
