Overview

A visit to Lasseter Family Winery is an exploration for all the senses, and one that will not be easily forgotten. Visits are offered by appointment only, and are available daily beginning at 10am. Estate visits last approximately one and one-half hour. Join us at our beautiful estate in the Sonoma Valley for a behind the scenes look at the Art of Winemaking and the passion that the Lasseter's have brought to the challenge of producing world class wines. The Lasseter Family's love of old-world style blended wines inspired them to begin revitalizing these historic vineyards in 2002 and their commitment is evident from the moment you drive thru our front gate and gaze upon the sweeping vista of meticulously maintained vineyards. Your visit begins with a walk through our organically farmed vineyards - where all great wines begin. From there, you'll explore our Barrel room, Tank Room and Crush pad, where your Wine Specialist host will bring the journey of grape - to - glass to life. You'll then be invited to relax in our intimate Wine Room to taste the collection of Lasseter Family Wines accompanied by a plate of local, artisan cheeses. Throughout your visit, you'll see how the Lasseter's zest for living and love of storytelling is evident in every detail - From the series of original label art commissioned by local artist Dennis Ziemienski thru the balanced & harmonious wines created by Winemaker Julia Iantosca. *Note: Our last appointment of the day is offered at 4pm, and does not include a tour. The fee for this tasting only appointment is $25 per person. $35/$25* per person (Complimentary for Lasseter Family Wine Club members**) **Number of complimentary visits determined by membership level.
