Owner description: Twomey Cellars was established by the Duncan Family, and uses the same philosophy that has guided Silver Oak - making exceptional, food-friendly wines that are deliciously drinkable upon release. The Twomey Cellars Healdsburg, CA winery is located in the beautiful rolling hills of Sonoma County. The Healdsburg winery features a modern design with a winding, wraparound patio. Enjoy the stunning views of Mount St. Helena and Geyser Peak while experiencing exceptional Pinot Noirs and Merlot wine tasting tours.

“Seeing Sonoma and Love Wine? Be sure to stop here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2013

This is a wonderful , friendly place. We did some sightseeing in Bodega Bay and the Redwoods, and wanting to try some local wines, we stopped here. The views were beautiful, the wines really delicious. We were given a private tour, they were bottling that day and we were given a sample by the winemaker, Ben. Our guide was the very knowledgeable Ann Tallman. We were blown away by their Sauvignon Blanc especially, thought the only good ones were from New Zealand! I highly recommend Twomey.

“Worth a visit, even if it's just for the view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2013

Twomey's tasting room offers an awesome view, as well as a sleek, modern building to enjoy with their wine. Silver Oak owns the property and sometimes uses the production facility for its Napa cabernet overruns, but Twomey actually specializes in some delicious Russian River pinot noirs ($50), a decent sauvignon blanc ($25), and a very good estate merlot ($50).

Our pourer was exceptionally friendly and fun, knowledgeable, and he gave us an interesting tour of the production facilities. It's worth a visit here

“Nice & refined”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2013

A sister to the great cab maker Silver Oak, Twomey is the home of the non-cabs. Nice, modern facilities and some good wines made for a pleasant experience. Walked away with a delicious vintage Merlot on special for only $30.

“Pretensious and Overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2013

After some great low-key tasting all around Sonoma county, Twomey came across as very pretensions. The wine was average at best, and was way overpriced compared to other wineries in the area.

I might have considered buying a bottle or two if it weren't for the strange vibe of the staff. Your wines use the same grapes as wineries all over the Russian River valley- you did a terrible job explaining anything that would lead me to believe that they were worthy of their price, and quite frankly, many of them weren't that great.

“Lovely View - Wonderful Wines”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2012 via mobile

A contemporary tasting room overlooks Sonoma valley. The hosts are knowledgeable and generous with pours. The selection is good with smooth Pinots. We bought a bottle and a hat from this pleasant place.
