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.

I am in the Iron Horse wine club and live locally so this is far from my first visit. It is my go-to winery to take visitors, because of the kind and interesting tasting room people (Trey, Mary, and Carly for example), the great wine, and gorgeous view. Also it is conveniently on the way to Bodega Bay... The emails suggesting what to drink for various astronomical events are insidious!

We reserved a tasting online. Despite that we could almost not get a space at the wine bar. The hostess was very busy and did not have much time to tell us about the different wines. We were only allowed to try one type of wine (pinot noir, sparkling or chardonnay). The tasting was not what we expected. We had better tastings at other wineries.

The view is great, and the outdoor tasting area nice. However, we received poor and impersonal service while visiting. We were told nothing about the wines unless we asked questions, and our 'host' repeatedly lost track of where we were in our tasting. The only redeeming part of our visit is that we found a decent sparkling wine to purchase, which waived our tasting fees.

Perhaps the change to the reservation system has decreased the crowding and allows for more individual service? Seems likely to me. The setting remains spectacular.

All wines (sparkling, white, and red) were great. The view of the vineyard and surrounding areas from the tasting area was stunning. The two complaints we had were that there was nowhere to sit, and none of the areas were air conditioned. Tasting areas consisted of a table with an umbrella. Granted, it was over 100 degrees outside, so we may have felt very differently with different weather.

Of course, having Joy walk us through the experience pushed the whole thing over the edge. The different vintages, the various sparkling wines, their labels, the view, the peaches what else could we ask for?.....to live closer? A smile on my lips,, ah Iron Horse
