Top 12 Sebastopol Wine Tasting Rooms Released by Sonoma Wine Tasting Blog

The Sonoma Wine Tasting Blog has released its much-anticipated, authoritative list of the Top 12 Sebastopol Wine Tasting Rooms at wineries and vineyards in the Sonoma County town known for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, which includes the Sonoma Coast, Russian River Valley Valley, and West Sonoma Coast American Viticulture Areas (AVAs). West is Sebastopol is Bodega Bay, enveloped in a dense marine layer that passes through to this remarkable cool climate wine growing region.

Best Sebastopol Wine Tasting Rooms

The Top 12 Sebastopol Wine Tasting Rooms list includes a Sebastopol winery map as well as Sebastopol wine tasting rooms prices, hours of operation for each of the Sebastopol wineries included, tasting room menus, wine tasting reservation requirements, the number of red wine and white wines poured, and wine tasting room reviews. The list was authored by wine writer Scott Butterfield who has over a decade of experience as a wine buyer for wine shops and wine bars, and who has traveled extensively to wineries and vineyards in Bordeaux, Tuscany, Austria, South Africa, New Zealand, and of course, Washington, Oregon, and California.

Included in the Top 12 Sebastopol Wine Tasting Rooms list are popular wineries with tasting rooms in The Barlow and lesser known, award-winning boutique Sonoma wineries offering unique wine tasting menus and vineyard tours off the beaten path like the foggy Sebastopol hills, east of Freestone and Occidental, and north Sebastopol, just south of Forestville. Sonoma County is roughly 45 minutes from San Francisco.

The Barlowe in downtown Sebastopol offers an eclectic mix on wine tasting rooms, restaurants and shops.

Earlier this year, the Sonoma Wine Tasting Blog published the Sonoma Wine Tasting Report revealing average wine tasting prices throughout Sonoma County, as well as tasting room reservation requirements. The report found that the average price of a Sonoma wine tasting was $37 and that the majority of tasting rooms require reservations. The findings were featured in the San Francisco Chronicle, ABC7 News, The Press Democrat, the Sonoma County Gazette, and others.

Since its inception, Sonoma Wine Tasting Blog has been a trusted resource for discovering the Best California Pinot Noir, Sonoma wineries, food and wine pairings such as Pinot Noir pairing tips from master sommeliers and epicureans, the best wine with Mediterranean food, the best wine with crab cakes, the best wine with salmon, the best wine with duck confit and much, much more.

Sebastopol has been known as Northern California’s farming and agricultural center for more than 150 years. Today it has become a vibrant hub of fruits, flowers, vegetables, and vineyards. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, in particular, thrive in its cooler climes and have made their mark on wine lovers worldwide. Sebastopol is very different from Napa Valley because it is home to small wineries that make limited reserve vintages which are often not sold in stores and are only available in wine tasting rooms and wine clubs. Sonoma wine tours offer the chance to meet the vintners involved in the winemaking process from grape to glass.
