We visited on a cloudy rainy day in March celebrating a birthday. The gentleman who was pouting, mostly did just that. Poured and gave us a tiny explanation of what we were drinking. We practically had to PULL the information out of him. He didn't...More

The reserved tasting was great. The tour, and our tour guide was excellent, wines were top notch. You are able to sit, relax and enjoy the tasting without feeling rushed, or feeling like it’s a “please join our wine club” infomercial.

We’ve been fans of Schug wines for a long time. Finally had a chance to pay a visit. Beautiful facilities, great seeing Axel Schug and of course, the wines! When in Sonoma, be sure to visit Schug!

Had a great tasting with Tom who knew a lot about the vineyard. The tasting room was a little small but I really liked the Chardonnay and the Pinot Noir Reserve.
