Welcome to our tasting room just a few feet from our vineyards where you can sit and enjoy the view. We are open from 11am to 4pm Thursday thru Monday, and Saturdays 11am to 5pm. We offer a self-guided vineyard tour complete with fun facts about our year amongst the vines. Tasting and vineyard tours can be arranged for large and private groups by appointment. Cheese pairings also available by appointment.
West Wines is a small winery run by Bengt Akerlind and Katarina Bonde. We produce wines from our own vineyards located in Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County, California. Our winemaking is inspired by French traditions of crispness and complexity combined with the fruity and rich flavors of grapes grown on Californian soil. We offer big complex Cabernet Sauvignon, well rounded Bordeaux style red blends and Italian and Argentinian inspired blends, Blanc de Blancs, Chardonnay, Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc can be found as well as a sumptuous dessert wine. Our specialty is our vintage library collection of mature Cabernet Sauvignon which only gets better with age. At least two years barrel aging and 5 years of bottle aging is the recipe.
The grapes for our wines come from our sustainably farmed vineyards that are hand harvested and meticulously sorted to ensure the highest quality.
Our team consists of people who have been farming and making wine in the valley for decades, coming to know the soil and the grapes very well.
