There was nothing spectacular about this place or wines selected for the tastings. We ordered a cheese platter which came with almonds dried cranberries and a large chunk of Asiago. The tasting room was more like a gift shop selling odds and ends. There wasn't...More

Super fun place! We each ordered a "wine surf" - a flight of 3 reds or 3 whites (or mixed) served on a little surfboard, and sat out on the deck and watched the birds fly over the bay. They have cheese plates, etc., and...More

The bay view is awesome, we loved how you try different wines from different wineries. When you go to the winery you are only tasting their wines, where as here you try typically 3 different wineries, white, red or a combo. The staff (husband and...More

Great place to try some wine, sit outside and watch the bay. Stopped here a couple of times during our vacation. To samples some wines, buy some wine for home, and to have some while sitting outside on a nice cool afternoon.

Stopped in for a bit and a sip and were not disappointed. The wines were really quite nice and the cheese plate ample and fresh. We ended up buying a bottle of what we sampled. Friendly staff, nice views, outdoor seating.

Gourmet au Bay is Sonoma Coasts' only waterside wine bar. Wine selections are local, small production and award-winning. Try Wine Surfing(R) on the deck and watch sea lions, seals and a variety of birds playing in the harbor. We serve cheese and cracker plates daily. From time to time we have a caterer set up an outdoor kitchen and serve light dinners. On the first Friday of each month, we serve $1 oysters on the half shell starting at 4pm till they are gone. Our wine selection changes regularly. The three criteria we use to select our wines are 1) under 1000 case production 2) 90 points or better and 3) gold award winning. All the wines are from California (with a couple of exceptions). Gourmet au Bay has been in the business of wine tasting and "Surfing" since 1995. We look forward to seeing you on the deck!
