Sophie's Cellars, Sonoma Wine Tasting

Allocated and limited production wines

Unlike many on-line wine stores, Sophie's Cellars is a brick and mortar store with a wine tasting room in the heart of Sonoma's wine country. As such, we have access to rare and hard-to-find wine allocations which we have made available on-line. We also provide a 10% discount on mixed 12 bottle cases. We hope you will enjoy shopping with us online or come visit us in Sonoma Country, one of the world's finest wine growing regions.

Sophie's Cellars wine tasting room is located in Duncans Mills, California, on the borders of the Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast wine appellations. Sophie's Cellars features limited production wines from all over Sonoma County, specializing in wines from the Russian River Valley, Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley, Rockpile, as well as a limited selection of imports in its wine tasting room. We serve artisan cheeses with flatbreads and crackers, prosciutto and salami, local hand made chocolates. Enjoy a pairing of wines and foods at Sophie's Cellars tasting room.
