Where meaningful experiences happen in the Russian River Valley

Favorite Local Wineries

What you may not know about Sonoma County is that most of the area is still unincorporated and independent, with only the more populated downtown areas incorporated into towns like Guerneville. Most of our inviting area wineries are independent of a specific town, giving them some of their casual charm. Set on rolling estates with views of Redwood forests and the Sonoma Coast, Russian River Valley wineries offer a special charm that brings folks back over and over again.

While popular destination Korbel Champagne Cellars is the only winery located in Guerneville CA proper, other famed area wineries offer a broader range of varietals, with unparalleled Pinot Noir and Chardonnay leading the charge. Experience a variety of them in one place at a local tasting bar such as Sophie's Cellar's in Duncans Mills, or get out and try some of our personal favorites.
