See Review

Larson Family Winery is a family and dog friendly winery in the Carneros region of Sonoma.

The land has been in our family since 1899 starting as a landing for the Steamer Sonoma, a steamboat that traveled up Sonoma Creek from the Embarcadero.

From about 1920-1950, this land was Millerick Ranch and hosted the Sonoma Rodeo.

Rich in history and heritage we now grow 77 acres of grapes on the 101 acre plot that was purchased by the Millerick family in 1899.

Chardonnay was planted here in 1977 by Tom Larson, son of Helen Millerick and Bob Larson. We say "where vineyards now thrive, cowboys once competed."

Tom Larson still owns the winery and they are not in distribution. You'll have to buy the wines at their winery so bring a lunch.

Schug Carneros Estate WinerySchug Carneros Estate Winery - Wine Tastings $5 - $10 (for a Reserve Tasting)
Tel: 707-939-9363
Tel: 800-966-9365
602 Bonneau Road
Sonoma, CA 95476

Founded in 1980, Schug Carneros Estate Winery is the showcase and life-long dream of one of California's most celebrated winemakers.

Drawing on his long experience in the production of fine wines in Germany and as founding Winemaker for Joseph Phelps in California, Walter set up the winery so that he could focus on the Pinot Noir that had always been close to his heart.

Walter and Gertrud were joined by their son Axel in 1989 who has directed the sales and growth of the winery in the ensuing years and is currently the managing partner. In 1995 Sonoma native Mike Cox joined the team as Winemaker with Walter Schug now overseeing the business as Winemaster. Nestled in the hills of the cool, marine climate of the Carneros Appellation, the winery continues to operate as a family enterprise dedicated to Walter's original passion for graceful and elegant Pinot Noirs.

Idyllically situated on a hilltop at the entrance to the legendary Sonoma Valley, Viansa Winery & Marketplace naturally embodies the proud history of local winemaking.

With its distinctive Italian atmosphere and charming Old World architecture, Viansa Winery & Marketplace is a tribute to the early Italian immigrants who brought their winemaking traditions to Sonoma Valley.

Surrounded by vineyards, flower gardens and olive groves, and modeled after the charming, centuries-old villas that dot the Tuscan landscape, the main winery building appears to have been magically transported from the Italian countryside.

Painstakingly crafted from authentic materials and boasting signature details like hand-painted interior frescoes depicting peasant life in the Tuscan countryside, Viansa's Villa has the power to whisk visitors away to romantic Italy - if only for an hour or two.

Meticulously landscaped grounds planted with imported Italian cypresses and stone pines, lovely terraces overlooking Sonoma Valley and classic imported Italian statuary beautifully complete the picture.
