If you are going to Stryker,then I would HIGHLY recommend that you stop in Healdsburg and visit the Pezzi King tasting room. They took 2 of the 3 Sweepstakes awards at Harvest Fair and both are delicious. Hudson Street Wineries is next door ( literally) and is worth a quik stop-in as well.
We were disappointed in the Stryker offerings in October- they just didn't have the 'soul' of previous years. Hawkes, on the other hand, was a really great experience that I would definitely suggest; not a zin house, of course, but wonderful Cabs and Merlot, and the Chard was an unexpected surprise.

That does help, thanks! St. Francis and Kenwood are on my early list. I used to sell a St. Francis zin for around $15 that was amazing for the price.

I also plan on going north one day and hitting Stryker for sure. On my last trip we met the winemaker I believe and his wife at Mill Creek. We later ran into them again at Mauritson.

Sounds like I need to add St. Anne's to the list.

Hiya wolfman.
In Sonoma Valley, the ones mentioned previously here aren't zin spots. Best places for Zin in Sonoma Valley, IMO are going to be St. Francis and the new St. Anne's Crossing ( Blackstone's old building) from the thop of my head. St. Anne's is a Wilson boutique, so they are all about zin there. Of course, Ravenswood and Kenwood also have zins, but we have been to neither and consumed neither in quite a few years so I can't speak to their current offerings.
Does that help?

Yes - I am going to check out your suggestions, but can I find a good zin at one of these wineries? ;-)

GlenLyon looks hilarious - would be fun to meet them! From the website, not so sure that they are available to make tasting appointments.

I'll check into the others - thanks yes!

Hi D'.
Our Glen Ellen favorites would be Audelssa, Loxton and Imagery. I recently read some things about Wellington ( next to Loxton) which made me think they may be worth a visit, too.
I don't know if you can get an appointment at GlenLyon, but if so, I think you would enjoy Squire and Suzy immensely. Look up their website and read about the wines and see what you think. And yes, they are a zany as it sounds and the wine is as delicious as IT sounds.

well never mind! I googled Glen Ellen wineries and this one, which is NOT in Glen Ellen, came up. Seem that it is actually in Livermore. Sheesh! 75 miles south of Glen Ellen!

Anyway - who has suggestions for wineries around Glen Ellen?
