I've been to Sonoma twice. The first time was in 2005 with my husband. We loved the area, especially after visiting Napa, which was very touristy, crowded and full of large, more well-known wineries. This month, I visited with 4 young ladies, some of whom had been to the area and some not. We visited several Sonoma winery tasting rooms and enjoyed some very good wine, but we wanted to take a tour of a winery and were looking for a unique experience. We called Robert Hunter winery after reading the reviews here on TripAdvisor. Having planned a visit to the Napa valley on Day 2, we deviated from our schedule when we found that Robert Hunter could take our group the following day. Arriving at 10 am, we were greeted by Eric, who took us on a tour of the exotic gardens outside of the owners' home. After tasting very generous pours of their delightful reserve estate wines, we were treated to a visit by the owners, Robert and his wife, Ann. The history of this winery is fascinating, and meeting the owners (90 and 86 years old respectively) was a one-of-a-kind experience. Needless to say, the $25 dollar fee for tasting and tour was well worth the investment. If you take one wine tour in Sonoma Vallley, this is it. Great tour and great wine...who could ask for anything more?
