Ravenswood Winery

Sonoma: April 1, 2004

Ravenswood where they boast they make "No Wimpy Wines" is a short drive from the Sonoma Square. If you haven't visited there in a few years you will be pleasantly surprised by the new Tasting Room. Still set in the same bucolic country environment, surrounded by flowering lavender plants, California grasses, native oaks and eucalyptus trees, the new  room boasts a fireplace and a large tasting bar, a small gift shop that features their signature T's, sweatshirts and hats. Be sure to pick up a "No Wimpy Wines" bumper sticker, button, or tattoo. Daily they feature as many as 12 of their wines for sampling.

On summer weekends they still roll out the barbecue. The menu rotates weekly, featuring ribs, chicken and skirt steak, along with heaping helpings of cole slaw, potato salad and grilled Portobello mushrooms. Prices range from $9-$14 depending on the menu, there's even a kid's menu for $5 and a selection of Sonoma County cheeses is also available for those seeking lighter fare. Barbecues happen rain or shine and reservations are not required.

On our visit we found the staff friendly and knowledgeable. This seems to be a place where everyone loves their work and it shows in the enthusiasm and dedication of the employees. We tasted several wines and found them all to our liking. Click this link to read our Tasting Notes.
