Mayo Family Winery Tasting Experiences
In the charming little town of Glen Ellen, just a few minutes north of Sonoma, is an unassuming and quaint tasting room called Mayo Family Winery. With more than 20 different types of wine ranging from sparkling to award-winning Chardonnay and Zinfandel and less-common varietals such as Gewürztraminer and Grenache, there are so many delicious options to choose from. This family-owned winery creates an authentic, welcoming ambiance that’s hard to beat.
Two Tasting Experiences
Winery Tasting Room – The Heart of Hospitality
Mayo Winery’s “Premium Tasting” ($15) includes a tasting of the more common and familiar wines in the area, while the “Adventure Tasting” offers more unique varietals as well as a few different blends. Bring your own picnic and enjoy a glass or bottle of wine in the pet-friendly courtyard. The Adventure Tasting ($20) provides nine different wines, including the special rosé “Ernest’s Cuvée” a dry, delicious blend of mostly Grenache, with a splash of Syrah. For groups of eight or more, contact the winery for a private tasting. You can reach the tasting room at (707) 938-9401.
Wine & Food Adventure at the Reserve Room
Unlike other wineries, Mayo Family Winery provides guests with an additional food and wine experience at a second location, called the Reserve Room, located just down the road in Kenwood. The Wall Street Journal calls the Reserve Room, “The single best deal in wine country... what an awesome experience.” With critical acclaim and local recommendation, this is truly why you come to wine country.
Surrounded by gorgeous hillside vineyard views, you will enjoy a remarkable seven-course menu that showcases seven Mayo Family Reserve wines paired with seven gourmet creations prepared by the Executive Chef. Each small dish beautifully complements each wine. Many of the herbs and vegetables are grown and harvested right from the property’s gardens, providing the freshest ingredients possible. The Mayo Family Winery Reserve Room epitomizes the abundance of wine and food in Sonoma Wine Country that inspires such an elevated and unforgettable culinary experience.
The menu changes seasonally to ensure the freshest flavors possible. Price is $60 per person or $30 per person for Cellar Club Members. Call the Reserve Room at (707) 833-5504 to learn more.
