Great wines, nice tour, generous tasting. Good "museum". I consider it a "must see" for new visitors to get a good overall feel of wine country. It is an excellent example of Sonoma County wineries and has a lot of history, plus the sparkling aspect, which is the focus here. However, do NOT give them your email address or sign up for their Wine Club. They will not remove you on request, their mailings do not contain an unsubscribe link (as required by law), and they send email with everyone's email address in the "TO" field so that all recipients get your email address! Replying to their email to try to unsubscribe bounces. When you try to use their contact form to discuss this, they REQUIRE that you agree to receive promotions from them and their "partners" (In other words, will sell your email address!). If you don't agree, the form will not be submitted. I signed up at the winery for their "club" in order to get discounts, and then tried to use my discount immediately to purchase some wine to take home. They told me I couldn't do that, that my discount would not take effect until they shipped me my first case of wine! This despite the fact that I can purchase their wines cheaper at Safeway than at the winery even with the discount. In short, great wine. Great tour, Beautiful grounds. Generous tastings. But don't sign up for anything, give them your email, or buy anything from the winery. If you want some of their wines, stop off at grocery, where they are regularly discounted (recently all the Korbel wines at Safeway were being sold for $9.99).

Love Korbel but we got here and they said they closed at 4:30, rather than 5, which is what their website says, disappointing. :(

Everybody knows that Korbel is the Miller/Budlight of bubbles. How are they even allowed to refer to their product as "champagne?" Bottom line: they stock their tasting room with servers and guides that are racists that couldn't care or even know less about wine.

Free tour and champagne tasting. Wine snobs will probably turn their nose up at this "California Champagne" but a nice location and a great story behind the history of this place, so a must see if you are in the area.

Korbel winery is at a beautiful location among the redwood trees. At this historic location you can take a (free!) tour and tasting to learn about the history of the winery and how they make their wine. And if you want to take home a bottle or two of their California champagne, they are very reasonably priced.

The free tour and tasting was very educational. The california champagne was of high quality, especially when you consider the price point.

Their complimentary tour and tastings are a huge plus in these rough economic times, especially as close as they are to a college town. Be sure to try their Riesling Champagne, which successfully balances sweetness and bubbliness with none of the overwhelmingly syrupy qualities that have given dessert wines a bad reputation. The tour opens well with views of vine rows across the street and "Rapunzel's Tower" recessed off of the main path, but some visitors may wish to forego its 10+ minute video portion in favor of an independent walk past lovingly pruned roses into a well-stocked, gourmet delicatessen.
