Gloria Ferrer Winery, Sonoma Valley

Lost in the Journey

Gloria Ferrer Winery, Sonoma Valley

When we visited San Francisco recently, we took a wine tour that visited three Napa and Sonoma Wineries. The best of the best was the Gloria Ferrer Winery – Sonoma

The tour took us from the anti room, to the barrel holding room where they have lots of parties, then on to the bar overlooking the production room.

We tasted grapes fresh from the vine. They were super sweet and delishious!

We enjoyed a close up look at some of Gloria’s Champaign flute collection. Unfortunately we did not have a tour of their famous caves, however, the harvest was beginning that evening and they were getting ready for it to begin that evening.

The grapes are harvested mostly at night, but hand.  It is a long process, but it ensures the grape skins (which ad color to the final wine) are not broken.  This gives the wine maker more control over the color.

My favorite wine at Gloria Ferrer was the 2015 Jose Ferrer Selection Chardonnay at $40 a bottle, it is not inexpensive, but for a special dinner – it would be perfect.

I decided to join their wine Cuvee Club which ships two bottles every quarter. I recieved my first shipment recently.

If you want to try some great wines when you are in Sonoma Valley, be sure to visit the Gloria Ferrer Winery.  You will be happy you did.

Hope you get Lost in the Journey

  19. I’ve always wanted to take a tour through the Napa Valley Winery’s, even though I really don’t like wine – I think winery’s are beautiful. Although, I did visit one with a friend in Oregon and had a peach sangria, which was fabulous!

    This sounds like a fabulous place to visit. I love the idea of picking grapes from the vine to taste and then I would have loved to see that flute collection. Thanks for sharing! If we ever get out there, I’ll have to keep this on the list of places to go.
