The winery had a beautiful tasting patio. We were the only guests there at the time we had reserved. Consequently, we had our host’s undivided attention. It was a pleasant experience.

Had a great experience as the wine is good. Unfortunately, we stood at the bar for 2 hours having our expensive cheese and charcuterie board wine experience. Having set in a lovely "dining" room prior , it was disappointing and their was no explanation as to why. There are outside tables that could have been offered as a plan B.

Martinelli is my favorite winery in Sonoma county. I live in the area and go tasting frequently, and have yet to find a winery I enjoy more. The wine is exceptional. The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The atmosphere is laid-back in a quaint country setting - a perfect mix of casual and elegant.

It was our first wine tasting experience and it was beyond fabulous. We chose a private tasting followed by a lunch on the patio. We were fortunate to have a host that was passionate about what she does. Our questions were encouraged. We sampled some extraordinary wines and enjoyed a great tasting lunch. We would definitely go back and recommend Martinelli to anyone visiting the area.

This was the best of all of our Sonoma County tastings. Our host gave not only the family history of the winery but anecdotal stories about the individuals. That made much more personal. The wines we tasted were among the best they make and it was difficult to pick a favorite. Tucked away in the rear of the facility you could really get down to tasting these great wines.

The experience was more than 5 stars. We love Martinelli wines but after the tasting, we loved everything about the wine, the winery and the employees. Everyone was so friendly and knowledgeable. We were lucky enough to have Tom as our host. What a fantastic experience! We were in Sonoma and Napa for a total of 6 days and our Martinelli tasting was by far, our favorite experience.

This experience was just ok. Not a lot of information shared unless we asked. Didn't get much insight into the wines, the vineyard or the anything else. It didn't draw me in, the way that other vineyards and or tours have done.

This was extremely nice and made our experience even better. Brandi was knowledgeable about the wines and the history of the Martinelli family and we enjoyed the quaint, atmosphere and privacy of our wine tasting booked!
