I have been tasting at Scharffenberger for many years when I visit Anderson Valley. They have consistently good sparkling wines and a couple of still wines too. Their wines are also a good value. Their tasting room is near the town of Philo and charges $3 per person for the tasting. They have a good selection of wines in a... 更多
The further you drive away from Napa and Sonoma, the more attractive the pricing becomes. This was certainly true for Scharffenberger – a sparkling wine producer near Boonville. Tastings were $3 – but waived if you bought anything – and my wife really enjoyed several of their sparkling wines and at very reasonable prices. We bought a chilled bottle and... 更多
Scharffenberger is one of two sparkling wine producers in the Valley with Rhoderer being the other one. The tasting experience at Scharffenberger is delightful and informative. I think their Sparkling offerings are exceptional and I always come home from the Anderson Valley with a bottle or two of Scharffenberger sparkling wine. The Cremant is probably my favorite.

Handed us the only picnic basket since apparently it was for us. We sat outside and ate off a steel table. Please spend a dollar at... 更多
No matter what the language, Scharffenberger sparkling wines are world class. Located in the tiny town of Philo (349 at last census), it’s a wine lover’s absolute fantasy. Philo is in Anderson Valley, Mendocino County, California. Outstanding sparkling and still wines, a bucolic setting, expert welcoming staff, fine art and an atmosphere that ties it all together into a complete... 更多
