Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards - Sonoma, California
Gloria Ferrer, the popular Sonoma County producer of both sparkling wines and still wines, boasts stunning views of the Carneros hills from their popular veranda. Bring along a picnic lunch or pick up cheese and crackers in the gift shop at Gloria Ferrer to go with your bottle of bubbles. Gloria Ferrer is among California Wine Country's best and most reasonably priced sparkling wines. Gloria Ferrer is best known for its sparkling wines, but the still wines here are worth a try, including estate Chardonnay and several Pinot Noirs, Syrah, Merlot.Not structured like a typical California Wine Country stand-at-the-bar tasting, at Gloria Ferrer you purchase a 2oz. taste, 5 oz. glass or bottle served table-side, along with a small plate of spiced nuts. In nice weather sit out on the deck and enjoy the view of the Carneros hills; in the rainy season the tasting room is warm with plenty of tables for crowds.
