Last weekend we had family visiting us from out of town and wanted to take them somewhere special. One winery that instantly came to my mind was Iron Horse. I had been twice in the past and always remembered enjoying the beautiful outdoor setting, as well as their wide selection of Sonoma County produced Sparkling Wine.
Upon arrival, you are greeted with a long dramatic stretch of giant olive and palm trees that line the Iron Horse driveway. Once you check in, you are given the option to either taste their all Sparkling Wine flight or a mix of their Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. I always opt for the all Sparkling flight since this is their specialty, in fact, many of their Sparkling Wines have been served for 35 years in six consecutive presidential administrations at the White House.
Another thing that I love about the tasting experience at Iron Horse is how relaxed the environment is. It is family-friendly, and you are welcome to stroll around the outdoor tasting area while sipping your wine and taking in the expansive views that extend all the way from Sonoma County to Mount St.Helena.
Tastings at Iron Horse are by appointment only. You can visit the website here to reserve your day and time.
COST $30 per person.
Tasting fee of $30 is refunded with a 2 bottle purchase.
