Fodor's Review

A visit to this majestic château is an opulent way to enjoy the Carneros District—especially in fine weather, when the vineyard views are spectacular. The château was modeled after an 18th-century French mansion owned by the Taittinger family. Carved into the hillside beneath the winery, the cellars produce delicate sparkling wines reminiscent of those made by Taittinger, using only Los Carneros AVA grapes. The winery sells full glasses, flights, and bottles of its

wines, which also include Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and other still wines. Enjoy them all with cheese and charcuterie plates, caviar, or smoked salmon. Seating is in the Louis XV–inspired salon or on the terrace overlooking the vines. The tour here covers traditional methods of making sparkling wines.

Domaine Carneros Review

Fodor's was right to recommend Domaine Carneros. My husband and I spent and absolutely spectacular afternoon here. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Worth every penny and then some especially if you love fine wines. Our tour guide, Kelvin, was entertaining and knowledgeable.

Beautiful location, great sparkling wine

I suggest this place purely for the atmosphere.... it is a gorgeous building and great view. The wine is good, the tour is free, and you'll get some questions answered. They do try to move people along to get them to the tastings (which do cost $$).
