Ram's Gate- the Gateway to Carneros

I drive up to Sonoma pretty often, and I have often sped right by this winery since it is right off the highway upon passing the Sonoma Raceway. There have been a number of instances where I have nearly been rear-ended, because I was cursing myself for missing this tasting room and not having enough time to safely slow down enough to drift into the long driveway that leads ups to it's open doors.

Welcome to Ram's Gate!

Welcome to Ram's Gate!

This tasting room is nothing short of modern and elegant. There are tables and settings all over for the different types of tasting experiences offered here. Bar seating, tables, an outdoor patio, picnic space...this venue was truly stunning. Enough cheesy words. Here are some pictures I took from my visit.

The service here is top of the line, and I believe that it is well worth the price of the tastings.

I shared the Tasting Bar Flight with a friend and it cost $40 for the tasting. We also were given a taste of the Pinot Blanc that was open. The fee is waived with the purchase of two bottles and you better believe that I stocked up on that Pinot Blanc!

1 Pinot Blanc, 2 Chardonnays, 2 Pinot Noirs! Sip time!

This room is just a short drive from San Francisco and definitely worth a stop! I recommending making a reservation because by 11am, it was filling up.
