Fodor's Review

Back in the day, when tasting rooms were low-tech and the winemaker often poured the wines, the winery experience unfolded pretty much the way it does at Loxton Cellars today. The personable owner, Chris Loxton, who's on hand many days, crafts some standout Zinfandels, Syrahs, and a Cabernet Sauvignon, and some regulars swear by the delicate Pinot Noir from Russian River Valley grapes and the seductively smooth Syrah Port. To learn more about Loxton's wine-making philosophy and practices take the tour ($20), which is followed by a seated tasting. Walk-ins can sample a few current releases for free, with an appointment you can taste older and limited-release wines ($15).
