Fodor's Review

Wells Guthrie, Copain's winemaker, is the kind of guy who spends his vacation working in a French vineyard, the better to understand how sun, soil, climate, and time-honored agricultural techniques combine to create great wines. This single-mindedness serves him well: his restrained yet accessible Chardonnays, Pinot Noirs, and Syrahs are marvelous examples of intuitive craftsmanship supported by deep knowledge. The Copain wines are among the most "European" ones produced in Sonoma County. The majority of the grapes come from elsewhere, mostly Mendocino and Monterey counties, and the wines' understated flavors reflect the cool climates and rocky coastal terrains of those areas. This winery occupies a hillside perch that begs you to sit, sip, and bask in the view.
