Join us at our beautiful estate in the Sonoma Valley for a behind the scenes look at the Art of Winemaking and the passion that John and Nancy Lasseter have brought to the challenge of producing world class wines. The Lasseter Family’s love of old-world style blended wines inspired them to begin revitalizing these historic vineyards in 2002 and their commitment is evident from the moment you drive thru our front gate and gaze upon the sweeping vista of meticulously maintained vineyards.

Throughout your visit, you’ll see how the Lasseter’s zest for living and love of storytelling is evident in every detail – From the series of original label art commissioned by local artist Dennis Ziemienski thru to the balanced & harmonious wines created by our winemaking team.

Our Proprietors Tour and the Barrel Tour and Tasting is open to guests 21 years of age and older on Saturday and Sunday. Guests of all ages are invited to visit Monday thru Friday. When making your reservation, please reserve for the total of your entire party, including those guests who will not be tasting wine - Failure to do so means a seat will not be reserved for the non-tasters (reduction of the total tasting fees will me made for non-drinking guests at the time of visit).

We're excited to announce the debut of our Compass Circle Patio tasting! Join us outdoors for a curated flight of Lasseter wines, or relax with a glass or two - Available April thru October. Please note, the cost of the patio tasting varies depending on your experience. Wine flights are $35 for three 4 ounce pours, wines by the glass (5oz) begin at $8 each.

Lasseter's reserve tasting tour was the highlight of our ladies' weekend in Sonoma. The property is beautiful with unique seating spaces for your group regardless of your size. Not to mention the wine is fantastic (a great variety from white to rose to a slew of wonderful reds) as is the hospitality. If you want to geek out on wine, you can, or you can just relax and enjoy.

I do have allergies and she had a plate prepared just for me. Thank you, that was very much appreciated. We are so happy to be returning as club members!

We had the first reservation on a Tuesday morning and we were the only couple there! What a wonderful VIP-type experience. From the sign outside that greeted us personally to tastes placed thoughtfully during the tour and paired with lovely bites, our time at Lasseter was well worth the price. We found the personalized experience to be very desirable. Keep doing what you are doing!

I’m not sure there are enough complimentary words in the world to describe every experience I’ve ever had here. Jackie (misspelled probably) is the most incredible host and makes you feel like you’re at home. Her storytelling about the winery is incredible and immerses you in the history. The pairings are perfect and delicious and all local so you get a taste of local flavors. Perfection!

Had a wonderful experience at Lasseter. Our guide, Richard, was very kind and welcoming. The grounds were beautiful and caves were cozy by candlelight and a seating area to finish our tasting at. With each wine, our guide presented us with a small delicious bite pairing. I have been many times to Napa and was very impressed with the wine, bites, and pricing. Would go back!

We were running late but they still gave us a brief overview, a glass of wine and some snacks before we caught up with the rest of the tour. The tour was incredibly informative, the tour guide answered all our random questions, and the sit-down tasting was fantastic

On a referral from a neighbor winery in Sonoma, I emailed Lasseter on late Saturday expecting a "thanks but no thanks" for a holiday Monday tour and tasting. I got a prompt reply and an appointment for Monday morning. We rolled in at 10am, and were greeted by Susan - an incredibly informative host for our leisurely tour and tasting. Great experience and good wines for our experienced group.

Charming location. It was a little hard to find initially (tucked behind a school and a big gate), but once we figured out where we were going, it was a great experience. We had a lovely private tour. We learned a lot! We ended up joining the club because the wines were so yummy and affordable. I would definitely recommend the tour and the wine if you like Rhone and Bourdeaux,

Top notch from start to finish! Kris was an amazing guide throughout our tour and tasting! You might be thinking of coming here because of John Lasseter and the Pixar/Disney connection, but you will be amazed by the wines which are focused around French Blends. This was unlike any other wineries we have visited, just very welcoming and comfortable with excellent wines. What more could you ask for?
