Tasting is waived if you do some purchasing. We tasted several and found purchasing some available only here as the way to go. Enjoy.

We learned about this place while we were tasting at Roederer because they are owned by the same entity. They also make sparkling wines, but have a slightly different style than Roederer -- lower acid and less yeasty. The sparkling wines are probably a slightly...More

Enjoyed our tasting experience @ Scharffenberger Cellars. The Anderson Valley has not really been discovered yet and remains quaint and peaceful.

Enjoyed the tasting at this vineyard. We normally don't drink sparking wine but loved every wine we tasted. Try it, you might like it!

The further you drive away from Napa and Sonoma, the more attractive the pricing becomes. This was certainly true for Scharffenberger – a sparkling wine producer near Boonville. Tastings were $3 – but waived if you bought anything – and my wife really enjoyed several...More

Scharffenberger is one of two sparkling wine producers in the Valley with Rhoderer being the other one. The tasting experience at Scharffenberger is delightful and informative. I think their Sparkling offerings are exceptional and I always come home from the Anderson Valley with a bottle...More

Enjoyed our tasting at Scharffenberger Cellars. The wines/sparkling wines we tasted were super and the staff helpful. No pressure to join their wine club--but good deal all the same. Can't wait for the first shipment!
