Introduction to MacPhail Tasting
Join us at our tasting bar (hewn from a fallen oak tree) or have a seat at one of our tasting tables for a flight of our current release Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. To keep this interesting, the flights change (after all, we farm several vineyards each year) and it’s not uncommon for us to pour something unexpected. We’re guided by your interests. Learn a little, or just enjoy the wine, it’s all good.
$20 per person
Reserve Icon Tasting
By definition, an Icon is something special indeed. In this flight, explore our top tier wines, including the heralded Mardikian Estate Pinot Noir, from the extreme reaches of the Sonoma Coast. There are always barrels that stand out each vintage which we set aside for our Vagon Rouge Pinot Noir and Vagon Blanc Chardonnay.
$30 per person, seated tasting experience
Every vineyard tells a story. When we created our Tasting Lounge, we created a special soil room where a wall features soils from the Toulouse, Pratt, Sundawg Ridge and Mardikian vineyards. 8’x4’ panels were dug at each site and installed here so you can see how soils vary. We’ll take a deep dive into soils, clones (we love them, a lot), the impact of the vintage and the nurturing a winemaker brings to what you have in your glass.
$30 per person, seated tasting experience in the Soil Room
By Reservation Only Please.
We select a new, local cheesemaker each month and work with them to create a nice pairing of their cheeses with our wine. Enjoy a cheese plate with a glass or bottle of our wines during your visit.
