Special Notes

Savor a platter of local cheeses or a gourmet lunch on the patio featuring one of Sonoma County's most amazing views.


Established in 1998, Fog Crest Vineyard sits among rolling hills with southeastern exposure, providing excellent drainage and the full morning sun necessary for the production of premium wine grapes in the cool Russian River Valley. The vineyard is planted with two carefully selected Dijon clones of Chardonnay and a combination of three Dijon clones and two heritage clones of Pinot Noir.

The owners, James and Rosalind Manoogian, are passionate about delivering an unforgettable tasting room experience for guests with their exceptional wines, a beautiful setting, and outstanding service. The welcoming tasting room sits above the Laguna de Santa Rosa, and the patio boasts one of Sonoma County’s most amazing views. Guests are invited to savor a platter of local cheeses or a gourmet lunch on the patio. What’s more, Fog Crest Vineyard hosts a monthly First Friday event that further demonstrates the winery’s desire to bring together food, wine, and community. Each First Friday features wines available for purchase by the glass or bottle and a different food truck serving tempting cuisine.
