“Great wine, not so friendly tasting room”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2014

A group of 6 of us had been visitng the area and had stopped here about 25 minutes before closing. I guess that is not a good time to stop because while paying for the tasting, we could tell they wanted to go home. When asked a question about the vineyard, the man behind the counter was very rude. With all the friendly tasting rooms in the area, this one can be avoided.

Hi Chris,

“First and foremost I would like to thank you for taking the time to reach out to us. We appreciate hearing feedback and comments about the service in our Tasting Room as it helps us make decisions and refinements regarding our service.

I am so sorry to hear that you had a disappointing experience in our Tasting Room. We pride ourselves in Italian family hospitality, with a passion for wine, food, history and good cheer. Unfortunately, it seems we fell short of that mark. I train my staff to provide excellent customer service and I regret any dissatisfaction that we may have caused. I will be reviewing this situation with my staff to ensure our standards are met consistently.

I hope that you will offer us another opportunity to extend our hospitality to you. If you are planning another trip to the area, please feel free to contact me directly and I would be glad to arrange a tour & tasting for you.

Salute,
SFV

“Disappointed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

We were disappointed with Seghesio, we love their wines, but frankly there was nothing at the winery that we like better than what we buy at home from the local wine store. The tasting room is nice and the people are friendly.

Hello and thank you for taking the time to share your review. Of the 25 + wines we make, only about 5 or 6 of them are in the wholesale market. Please let us know when you are back in the area so we can share a special event or tasting with you.

Salute!

“Tasty!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014 via mobile

Seghesio was the host for the evening welcome complimentary wine tasting at our hotel. The host/wine rep was very friendly & generous with pours despite the 2 groups of 2 couples each (8 people) who dominated/blocked access to the barrels from which the rep positioned the bottles & poured the tastings. 1 of the groups were very loud so maybe had been tasting most of the day. Aside from the poor wine tasting etiquette of others, the rep was informative and encouraged us to pay the winery a visit (which was just down the road) for a complimentary tasting. We loved the zin for which the winery is known and I personally really enjoyed the Pinot noir. Worth a visit.

“Great Wines”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

I work at a winery and this is the only winery at which I am a wine club member. Wonderful Italian varietals and Zinfandels at fairly reasonable prices. The staff is knowledgeable and super friendly. Located in Healdsburg just a 3 or 4 minute drive from downtown.

“Wonderful 'Red' Tasting Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Seghesio makes a wonderful series of red wines in the California style. The tasting room is intimate, but not somewhere to linger for a while. When the weather is nice, having a picnic in their garden with some wonderful reds. Don't forget to try their homemade salamis as well!
