West Sonoma Coast Wines are truly exceptional thanks to the unique terroir and innovative winemaking techniques from the dedicated producers. Our wines are selected for their faithfulness to this quality and sense of place.
When compared to other regions in America, West Sonoma Coast Wines stand out as a true gem among the many great winemaking areas across the country. While certain regions may specialise in specific varietals or styles of wine, few can compare to the overall quality and depth found within each bottle produced by the talented winemakers who call this coastal area home.
Unlike the more conventional wines produced in regions like Napa Valley or Santa Barbara, West Sonoma Coast Wines embrace a more rugged terrain that lends itself to creating truly exceptional blends. The cooler climate and proximity to the Pacific Ocean also contribute to this region’s distinctiveness, resulting in wines with a bright acidity that perfectly complements their rich bouquet of flavours.
While every wine-producing area has its own charms, West Sonoma Coast stands out for consistently producing stunningly good wines that satisfy both casual drinkers and connoisseurs alike.
Pinot Noir is a standout varietal in this region with distinctive flavours that complement a variety of foods. Pinot noir from the West Sonoma Coast is known for its bright acidity and subtle earthy notes, making it an excellent pairing for dishes like roasted chicken or salmon. For heartier meals, try serving this wine alongside beef stew or mushroom risotto.
Its light body also makes it an ideal match for vegetarian options like grilled portobello mushrooms or butternut squash soup. If cheese is on the menu, you can’t go wrong with pairing West Sonoma Coast pinot noir with brie, goat cheese, or aged cheddar.
