We made an appointment at this wonderful winery in Sonoma with only a few days notice. There were four of us and we were treated to a top notch private tasting. Our tour started with a glass of their Chardonnay and a walking tour of the vineyard with a rest at the picnic table at the top of the hill overlooking the lake and vineyard. Then our tasting continued in their tasting room at a huge rustic table in a comfortable setting. Our pourer was knowledgeable and treated us as if we were old friends. I would highly recommend taking the time to make an appointment and check out this place. Granted, the price point is quite high, but the wines were superb. Bring your credit card because it will be hard to walk out without a bottle of wine. The tasting fee is waived with purchase.

Went here with a group of 6 and was hosted by Brent. Had an absolutely amazing time sipping Chardonnay and Pinot Noir (mostly Pinot Noir) as Brent took us around the property, gave us background on the winery, and educated us on wine. Everything was great, from Brent's knowledge and friendliness to the beautiful property to the exquisite wines. Highly recommended if you are in Carneros area and are looking for top-notch PInot. Oh, and don't forget to call ahead and make an appointmnet!

Valet of the Moon coordinated a visit at Donum Estate for me and my wife. When we arrived, Brent from Donum met us and he was an amazing host. We had a glass of Chardonnay as we took a tour of the vineyard on foot. We don't usually like Chardonnay but this was a very good glass of wine. After about a ten minute walk there was a picnic table on top of a hill in the vineyard where Brent opened a bottle of Pinot Noir. Not only was the setting amazing on a perfect January day, the Pinot was that much better. We went back to their tasting room where we tried at least five more Pinots on their deck overlooking the vineyard. Every Pinot we tasted was amazing. With this being our second trip to Sonoma County, we weren't sure we were going to join a wine club because most wineries have a few wines that aren't worth the price of membership. During our tasting we knew we were going to be wine club members of Donum. For those reading this review it should be noted that Valet of the Moon coordinated our private visit with Donum a few weeks in advance. Also, we felt that for the quality of wine we were getting they were fairly priced. For anyone doing a tasting at any winery I always recommend checking out the web site to ensure they offer the wines you like at your price point. Overall an amazing experience, we can't wait to receive our wine and take another visit.
