The Tour

Our tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. She escorted 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. Throughout the tour she explained the process and relayed family stories and their long history.

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

California Grape Vines

We enjoyed a close up look at some of Gloria’s Champagne 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.

The Wine

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 with friends – it would be perfect.

I decided to join their wine Cuvee Club which ships two bottles every quarter. I received my first shipment recently and it was delicious.

If you want to try some great wines when you are in Sonoma Valley, be sure to visit the Gloria Ferrer Winery. The wine tour is like attending a party.  You will be happy you did.
