J Vineyards & Winery is the best place to start a tasting tour of the bubbly side of Sonoma County wines, since they have a whole room dedicated to sparkling wine – the Bubble Room. The Healdsburg tasting room is lavishly decorated and is considered a must-visit spot on the west coast by many publications. Several sparkling wine varieties, like Rosé and Chardonnay, are available for tasting anytime of the year.
From Thursday to Sunday, the winery puts together a wine and food pairing experience in the Bubble Room for $95 a person.
From 101 North, take exit 499 for Arata Lane. Turn left onto Arata, then turn right onto Old Redwood Highway. Turn left onto Vandenburg Road and the winery will be on your left.
