Visit our tasting room on historic sonoma plaza

We’re especially proud of our corner tasting room on the plaza here in downtown Sonoma. It was only one block to our north in 1825 that padres of the Sonoma Mission planted the first vineyard in what would become California’s Highway 12 Wine Corridor. From those grapes they produced their sacramental wines. With the arrival of our Highway 12 wines on the Plaza, the significance of that historic planting has come full circle.

Open daily 10:30 am to 5:00 pm
498 First Street East, Sonoma, CA 95476


Always Complimentary Tasting

Visitors to our Tasting Room enjoy complimentary tasting and a wealth of local knowledge and tips on must-sees in the area. Our Tasting Room has long been known for its casual congeniality - you won’t find a friendlier spot in town.

Our Tasting Room is also home base for our Highway 12 Cellar Club. Members visiting Sonoma will find a friendly staff ready to help make their stay especially enjoyable. Be sure to ask about the many benefits of Cellar Club membership.


We’re fortunate to be located in the historic Mission Hardware building with its rich history. Originally an adobe structure that housed a general store, it was replaced in 1891 with a “modern” brick building. After surviving a fire in 1911, the building was destroyed by fire in 1990. A brilliant preservation effort brought the plaza icon back with every brick as it was. and it was our good fortune to find it available when we were ready to join the Plaza community. Visit us 11:00 to 5:30 daily.

Sonoma Plaza circa 1840 as a Spanish military outpost. The eight acre plaza was a parade field. Remaining today is the mission chapel (right) and the barracks to the left of the chapel. The walkway is now Spain Street.
