Reviewed 7 June 2014

Visited Healdsburg on the last day of our Sonoma whirlwind tour. The square is lined with small shops restaurants and lots of places to sample wines. As we walked around we were drawn to Topel, about a half block off the square. We were helped by a nice young man and after 3 days of wine tastings, this one impressed us the most. The wines were very smooth rich and consistently good. We have no luggage space and resisted purchasing wines at a half dozen Napa wineries last trip and 4 other wineries this trip. We left Topel with 3 bottles! (I have no idea how we will get them home...). Also, unlike so many others that "allow" you to bring in cheese or crackers, Topel provided small bites and breadsticks to help you appreciate the taste of their great wines even more. The owner asked my wife what kind of cheese she preferred and brought a few slices out. Service, personality and excellent product. Worth the trek!

We discovered the Topel tasting room a few years back, were just back to visit for the 5 year anniversary of the tasting room. As they aren't a high volume producer, and only sell out of their tasting room in Healdsburg and online, we are so happy we found them. The tasting room is right off the square in Healdsburg and just down from the market.

We have found their tasting room to be intimate and comfortable and their tasting room employees to be knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. We love their red wines, especially their red table wine, the Pinot Noir, and the Meritage.

While we have raved about their wines for years to our friends, our opinions were validated this past trip when they too said the Topel tasting was the favorite of the day for the combination of good wine, reasonable prices, and a fun tasting room. We are members of their red wine club and have yet to be disappointed in any of our shipments.

The wine was beyond my expectations. Great wine for the value of the tasting. Quaint little place in a central location.
