Through legendary Sonoma Valley and the famed Carneros District, California’s Highway 12 is the quintessential Wine Road. Home to dozens of world renowned vineyards and wineries, this region has been the heart of Northern California’s Wine Country since the first plantings in 1825. Recognizing that our winery and our neighboring wineries owe much to this corridor, we proudly assumed the name and the responsibility of honoring its historical significance.

Carneros Highway Chardonnay Bottle Shot

2023 Carneros Highway “Nueva” Chardonnay



Produced to capture the essence of Carneros, our 2023 Nueva Chardonnay enjoys an extensive winemaking effort starting with early harvesting to retain natural acidity throughout the process. Barrel fermentation and sur lie aging creates a lusher profile with only hints of oak that contribute touches of toasty, honey-like notes. Beautifully balanced with bright green apple and white peach fruit flavors delicately integrated with hints of vanilla, butterscotch and toasted oak.

2022 Highway 12 Reserve Red Blend



The foundation of our Reserve Red Blend hails from our own backyard, at Quarry Hill Vineyard, which sits just off of Highway 12 just to the north of the historic Sonoma Plaza. This luscious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah showcases the bright fruit and bold structure, creating a charming elegance for which Sonoma is known. Sings with ripe wild berries, spice and a touch of mocha on the velvety finish.

Such a cool, small, quaint place. Me and my cousin came in too late for a tasting but had a glass of vine with the gentleman working. Was a nice experience with great music playing. Would highly recommend this place for small groups

We stopped here with our friends strictly based on reviews and using the Priority Wine Pass offer of 2 for 1 tasting. We absolutely loved this tasting room. We were a little early due to traveling from Oregon and there was no problem getting seated. We completely enjoyed the wines and chatting with Christina. If we didn't live in Oregon and have to pay shipping for wine club releases we would have joined on the spot. Such a lovely find!

It my and my fiancé's first time in Sonoma, so we decided to go for a wine tasting and we are SO glad that we found this place and stopped in. It's such an amazing environment with great music, great service, and terrific wines. Other wineries will have a tough time beating this experience.
