“Portworks - A place you definitely want to visit”
Reviewed 11 August 2012

Read the reviews and decided to take a visit. Staff was very welcoming and friendly. All the ports were very good. I was extremely impress with balsamic vinegar. It had a bright cabernet flavor with slight sweetness to it. I have already used it as a salad dress, dipping sauce and have cooked with it and drizzled it on shrimp The port wines were also amazing. This is definitely place you want to visit.

“The way wine tasting should be”
Reviewed 7 July 2012

The Portworks are tucked away on a side street in a developing area of Petaluma.... a small town worth exploring. It's a throwback to the way wine tasting (port tasting in this case) used to be. Very friendly staff & the tasting is free. They have 4 or 5 ports, plus 2 Grappas. All are very good & reasonably priced. Definately worth a stop if you're in the area

“I become a fan of ports”
Reviewed 17 June 2012

This small winery had a number of excellent ports. Also a fabulous version of balsamic vinegar. It is small and only carried fortified wines. Helpful staff.

“Fantastic Sherry!”
Reviewed 12 August 2011

Very nice port, sherry, and balsamic tasting. The sherry was my favorite. The balsamic is really good too - but not quite as authentic as the 15 year old vinegar I am currently using. Don't get me wrong: theirs is very yummy, but just not quite what I was expecting.
