COVID-19 Virus Update

On March 15th, Governor Gavin Newsom mandated some new restrictions in the state of CA to greatly minimize the spread of COVID-19 Coronavirus.  We support these new mandates and are in the process of shutting down and reducing operations in compliance with the Governor to help further reduce spread of the virus. Our Windsor Tasting Room and Tours will be CLOSED until further notice. Both Gift Shops will remain OPEN for bottles, growlers and merch to go. While the Governor did say that “brewpubs” would also need to close, we have clarification from his office that he was referring to Taprooms/Tasting Rooms, while brewery restaurants fall under the restaurant guidelines. Therefore, we have removed 50% of the seating from each....

Yuletide Blog

Season’s Greetings from Sonoma County! I hope everyone is having a fabulous Holiday Season thus far! We have certainly had our share of excitement around here, and finally settling down for the winter.  As many of you know, we had another major wildfire in late October, early November, that came dangerously close to burning homes and businesses within the city limits of Windsor. While several homes and more than 75,000 acres were burned, thankfully no one was seriously injured or worse. And we owe it all to the 5,000 First Responders from local agencies as well as throughout the state and beyond who literally saved our community from yet another horrible disaster. That is why this year’s Sonoma Pride is....
