Not your typical ‘going-to-a-vineyard-to-taste-wine’ experience.
A minimalistic and tiny tasting room where the focus is on the wine.
The actual Hirsch Vineyards is located way out on the Sonoma Coast.
Accessing these mind blowing wines is so much easier now that there is this showcase tasting room in downtown Healdsburg.
The walls of the tasting room disappear while the host talks; you’re transported to the foggy Sonoma Coast vineyards.
$35 Per Person.
60 minute seated tasting.
Experience knowledgeable and engaging information about the history of the vineyard and the complexities of each bottle.
Tasting fee is waved with purchase of one or more cases.
Worth every penny!
Hirsch Wine can range from $60 and up a bottle.
Planning for your tasting is required.
Not a place to bring kids or a rowdy bunch of wine drinkers.
Close to downtown Healdsburg.
All of it!
There is not a bad, mediocre, or just ‘good’ Hirsch wine. ALL of their wines are premier.
If I had loads of money sitting around, I’d buy every case of their East Ridge Pinot Noir.
Leave your dog at home.
Social Media Worthy:
The little tasting room itself isn’t screaming Instagram BUT…
You WILL want to showoff Hirsch tasting experience to your true wine nerd friends.
When they see you drinking Hirsch Pinot, you’ll be the envy of them all!
Only a few thousand cases of wine are produced.
Hirsch wine is Pinot GOLD!
Feel Good Vibes:
Sip happy, knowing you are drinking wine from a true visionary, David Hirsch.
David had no farm experience when he bought a sheep farm in 1978.
He turned it into a premier vineyard site.
He planted Pinot Noir which was at the time the least popular grape of the 80’s.
People thought he was CRAZY.
He believed he could boldly grow Pinot grapes in a remote area of the Sonoma Coast.
David Hirsch changed the course of Sonoma County wine history.
Wine Nerd Facts:
Hirsch Vineyards are the oldest, premium Pinot vineyards on the Sonoma Coast.
Hirsch grapes are coveted and extremely sought after.
Hirsch Vineyard is on a ridge at 1,500 feet and 3 miles from the ocean.
5 years ago I visited the actual vineyard property, and I saw the ocean through the Redwood trees on the Hirsch property.
The vineyard is located on the San Andres fault line.
Wine Club? Favorite Events?
There isn’t exactly a wine club.
You buy Hirsch wines IF you can get your hands on a bottle.
Also, Hirsch wine is splurge worthy .
Double check that you are on the Hirsch Mailing List.
Mailing List friends get first access.
They are hoping to roll out more events now that the tasting room is open!
Sheila’s Tasting Notes:
Drinking Hirsch wines is like drinking…the inside of a confident woman’s soul.
The kind of woman who has an ease and grace about her.
The kind of woman who looks effortlessly elegant in flowy dresses and wears a flower in her hair without looking like she tried too hard.
The kind of woman who turns heads as she sways her hips with each step.
Drinking Hirsch Pinot is like drinking the soul of a woman who’s in touch with her DNA, in touch with her ancestors…all the women who have come before her.
Her power comes from all the wisdom passed down in the honey of her veins.
Drinking Hirsch Wine is like getting a whiff of her scent as she walks by…its a smoldering and dark essence.
Drinking Hirsch wine is like craving more of this woman who honors herself and has a deep sense of self-worth.
Drinking Hirsch wines is savoring the treasure that is a woman who is perfectly aged and deliciously enchanting right to her core.
Have you been to Hirsch or tried their wines?
