At Virginia Dare’s Sonoma County winery and tasting room, an American wine legend is given a home in the heart of American wine country. In addition to tasting experiences, their trading post–inspired gift shop offers beautiful art and artisan products that pair effortlessly with their wines. Catch a view of the vast barrel room, admire the collection of Native American art, and enjoy an atmosphere that pays homage to a simpler era while offering the pleasures of a modern-day wine country experience.
Virginia Dare just opened not too long ago as a sister winery to Francis Ford Coppola. The White Doe and Two Arrowheads were my favorites of the wines we tasted, of which there were five total, with generous pours. Generous pours always earn five stars from me, especially in this region of California.
