Great Bubbly

Great experience and so fun to visit the cellars of a champagne I have been enjoying for years. We also took advantage of the nice deli and were extremely pleased with that as well.

Great Deli and Place to Eat before Flying from Sonoma Airport
May 2021
We killed some time here by going to the deli and getting great salads and a bit of their sparkling wine - seated outdoors in a nook under the redwood trees overlooking the vineyards across the street. It was a great place to kill time before going to the Sonoma airport which is literally a few miles away.....especially during the time of COVID.

I had been to the winery years ago - we just used it to eat before our flight home - and a great thing and place to do it.

Cheap, and you get what you pay for
Jul 2020
We booked a tasting in advance, which is a stand up tasting out back and they kinda hurry you through (and there are no tours, all because of COVID-19). The 3-drink tasting is free, and then for a small fee you can do the 4-drink or 5-drink tastings. We did one 4 and one 5 drink tasting and got a wide variety of things to try, which was nice, but we only really liked about 4 of the 9 (though we did buy a bottle while there of the Sec, which you can supposedly only get at the cellars). Despite there being only 3 other groups tasting while we were there and at least 8 Korbel employees standing around, we had almost no interaction with anyone. I was able to learn a little bit about the history of Korbel by eavesdropping on the group next to us, but the service was definitely lacking.

As a customer of Korbel Brandy for over forty years, i am sorry that your experience was not all that you wanted it to be. I love the winery because of consistent excellence of their brandy and champagnes. I have not gone to their winery because with the death of my husband, i have not visited outside to the wine country for years. I am sure with all that COVID-19 has put a strain on everyone, that the winery is not up to all the surrounding devastation of fellow wineries. I pray that when we beat this pandemic, that you will give Korbel winery another chance. Please keep safe and healthy. Carol Coles, The Listening Corner, owner/author.

A pleasant, safe experience
Jun 2020
We had an excellent experience at Korbel Winery during the pandemic. They have put thought into implementing systems to make everything safe, such as providing hand sanitizer and only allowing a few people into indoor spaces. Their outdoor seating area was perfect to enjoy some champagne. The prices are reasonable.

Deli is fantastic!
Feb 2020 • Couples
Passing by, tasted some wine (no charge, amazingly), and ate at the deli. The deli is AWESOME! Would totally recommend eating there! We both had sandwiches, with my husband also having a little side of the beet salad (we never make beets at home - who needs the mess, y'know?).

There were plenty of other options, including many salads/side dishes which could be gotten by the 1/4 pnt (or more).

So yeah, we'd totally east here again.

Lovely place to eat and sip champagne!
Oct 2019
Korbel deli is one of the best delis around. The food is freshly made, mostly local and always delicious. Lots of variety from really good specialty sandwiches and salads to desserts. Reasonable prices and a really nice patio, open and covered. They serve Korbel champagne and Russian River Brewery beers on tap and the setting is welcoming and comfortable for couples, groups and families. A great place to spend an afternoon and you can also take the winery tour or visit the tasting room.

Tour was terrible. Staff unengaged.
Dec 2019
Visited here years ago and had a wonderful experience. Not any more. The tour guide was unfriendly. She did not even wait for the full tour group to arrive at each destination. We literally heard almost nothing from the tour because she finished before we could even get into the area. Worst experience of our day.

an ok experience
Dec 2019
Of all the places we stopped in Sonoma and Russian River Valley, the Korbel tasting room was the most commercialized and insincere. I'm not sure how else to describe it. The cafe was nice and the food was very good.
