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.

We are long time Club Members who travel from the East Coast once a year to visit all of our wineries. We love their sparkling wines. We missed coming out last year and the improvements made since we were last here are great. We went Sunday for the Oyster Girls event which was nice. The oysters were small (disappointing). Sparkling wines, great as always. We recommend Iron Horse to everyone.

Iron Horse is absolutely gorgeous and on a sunny day, I can't imagine a better place to enjoy a glass of bubbly. The wines were all great!

All the wine was delicious and the views of the vineyard we were able to enjoy during the tasting made the experience that much better. Our sommelier was amazing. So personable and extremely knowledgeable about the wines & the vineyard. She clearly has a passion for what she does. A great experience. Highly recommend!

Don't worry when it seems like the road is trailing of into nothing. You're almost there. This is a place that makes for an intimate experience. The atmosphere was relaxed and informal but still classy. The views are incredible. I'm sure all of Iron Horse's wines are incredible, but my first experience with them two decades ago defined my feelings about their sparking wine. It's amazing!
