Fodor's Review

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

The renowned Napa Valley winery's West County outpost is a serene spot to learn about the cool-weather Sonoma Coast AVA and the Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs it produces. Phelps wines have always garnered praise for their expression of terroir (the land and microclimate), and the ascetic quality of the ones made here mirrors the rugged terrain. Tastings take place in an upscale-rural space or at picnic tables out front. The current Sonoma Coast wines are the focus of the $20 tasting, with Napa Valley Cabernet part of the $35 tasting. The $50 one includes Insignia, Phelps's flagship Bordeaux-style red blend. Each month on the second Sunday the guest center hosts fun and reasonably priced food events; Pinot Noir and Hawaiian barbecue and Chardonnay and crab cakes are two perennial favorites.
