Located just outside the wine-drenched hamlet of Healdsburg is a special kind of old-new place. “Old-new, what the heck is that?” you may ask. Well, here’s the scoop – Geyser Peak Winery was founded over 150 years ago (old) and has produced lots of great award-winning wines through the years at their original chateau-like Geyserville location. They still make wonderful wines, but now the winery and tasting room has a (new) location, just off of Westside Road, at the former home of Alderbrook Winery. So, there you have it, old-new. With great wines and gracious hospitality. What more could you want?
More than 70 acres of vineyards surround the large farmhouse-like tasting room. A covered front porch sets a welcoming tone and the grassy picnic area behind the tasting room tempts visitors to relax and stay a while.
The inside of the tasting room is gorgeous! Floor-to-ceiling windows let in lots of Sonoma County sunshine, the dark hardwood floors echo with the laughter and a long bar spans the back of the room. The Peak Room sits off to the side for private seated tastings. A fireplace takes up one wall, surrounded by cozy, cushy chairs and couches. A tasteful selection of non-wine merchandise is artfully displayed around the large, airy room, perfect for browsing while you sip.
Geyser Peak Winery’s friendly, knowledgeable staff will guide you through the tasting selections at the bar. Private tastings are available for groups of up to 30 people by appointment.
