About Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards

The wines of Gloria Ferrer are made for those times when everything just comes together. The stunning winery at Gloria Ferrer was created to help you experience just that kind of moment.

Read More

Back in the early 80’s there were only a handful of winegrowers planting Pinot Noir in Carneros. And yet, the Ferrer Family knew the key to a world-class méthode champenoise wine would be Pinot Noir.

The Gloria Ferrer winemaking team’s quest for perfection takes them to Champagne where they manage to acquire Pinot Noir and Chardonnay clones.

Gloria Ferrer is not only the first sparkling wine house in Sonoma Carneros, but also the first to plant Champagne clones and the first to plant in Carneros.

Almost thirty years later, with 335 acres under vine, the estate vineyards at Gloria Ferrer produce Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that rival some of the world’s finest.

WE came on Sunday at 10am for the Bubble and Bites. Loved the experience, sparkling wines, host (SAM), and food. The facility is beautiful and the room was we were in had amazing views to the vineyards. I wanted to stay and come back for the Crab fest in December. We became members on 7/17, under my husbands name - Ryan Shay.

We enjoyed our time at the Bubbles and Bites last week. Samantha was great - we learned a lot and she answered all of our questions. Food was delicious and the pairings were spot on. Our only disappointment was that we did not get a tour (as was mentioned in the description)! Not sure if there was another event precluding a tour, but would have been nice to see the facility and grounds.

Gloria's Wine Country Picnic on 5/11/19 12:00 PM

We booked the Wine Country picnic for a visit over Mother's Day weekend and it was the highlight of our trip. We had a generous tasting before the picnic to decide which sparkling wine we wanted with our lunch and then were taken upstairs to a pretty private area on the hillside. The food and service were very good and there was a table in the sun or shade with lovely views, highly recommended.

We were a large group so made a reservation and had sit-down tasting on their lovely patio. Wines were amazing, as usual, and service was definitely 5 star. We ordered extra cheese plates, which were scrumptious. Very family friendly (we had toddlers as well as older children in our group). Highly recommend Gloria Ferrer.

Beautiful grounds, tasty wines, service left much to be desired, subpar, they didn’t have my reservation info (through cellarpass) but at least we had a table. We understand Saturday’s are busy but it seemed like all staff would rather have been anywhere but there. Our waitress was sweet & hooked us up with a few extra pours but we had no interaction or information on what we were tasting :(

I think that our large group had a truly wonderful tasting session. We were not overly experienced with the Ferrer selections and in general are not sparking wine drinkers. The hostess was very knowledgable and interacted with our group in an amiable manner. Before the whole event was finished we had multiple wine club members, free-flowing champagne and lots of delicious chocolates! Great Day??

We had a reservation for “Bubbles and Bites”. The food was devine and the bubbles and wine selections complemented the dishes perfectly. We arrived from Nashville on the plane that morning and it was our first tasting at a vineyard. Could not have been more perfect! The best was Sam (Samantha). She was the cherry on the top of the sundae and gave us tons of pointers for the rest of the trip.

As a member of Gloria Ferrera Wine Club I was the impression that I would be able to enjoy an experience at least once a year. That is what I was told but the hostes ignored my group and was persistent in the other groups to get them to join the wine club. For this reason I am canceling my wine club. Didn’t appreciate the cold shoulder.

We booked the Bubbles and Bites tour experience specifically to tour one of the caves. The only cave we got to see is no longer used for wine, only rented out for events and you only view it from a balcony for a minute. The rest of the tour was insulting. There was a private tasting so we were told to be silent as we were quickly ushered through production without any lights on to see anything.
