Winery
Located in the Heart of Sonoma Valley, Loxton Cellars is a working winery surrounded by 5 acres of estate vineyard. It is the intent of owner/winemaker, Chris Loxton, to produce handcrafted wines, made without compromise, that show balance and a sense of place.

Wine tastings (no food) are currently offered by reservation and take place outdoors allowing guests to enjoy a lineup of handcrafted wines while taking in breathtaking views of the Mayacamas mountain range.

Tastings are $20/person, include a flight of 5 wines and offer a casual and educational experience. In the event of rain we do have you covered, but it can be a bit chilly this time of year so we suggest bringing layers. While we do not sell or serve food, you are welcome to bring snacks or lunch to enjoy in the picnic area. If you do not see the time you are looking for available give us a call at 707-935-7221 and we may be able to accommodate.

    Best place to go if you want to learn about the details and process of growing grapes and making wine. Highly recommend the vineyard tour with the owner, Chris. He is very knowledgeable with a sense of humor. Most important…..the wines are fabulous. We did not have food, but was required to review.

    The Loxton Cellars walking tour was a lot of fun. Chris Loxton tells great stories while sneaking in some wine learning. You begin to understand his great respect for and knowledge of the land and the grapevines that grow there. And then you taste excellent wine!

    Loxton Cellars should be on your top list of wineries to visit! The wines are incredible. Lisa is a fantastic host. The grounds are wonderful, not pretentious at all - just good people, great wine, and an amazing experience. We'll be back again, guaranteed. Please note, they don't serve food. But open table wouldn't let me submit a review without putting a rating for food.
