Gloria Ferrer Wine Estate

Tasting event: 10:30am – 12:30pm

Welcome to the Sonoma side of Carneros a where grape growing is also defined by maritime influences of the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay. These bodies of water and corresponding currents create cool summer temperatures and moderate winters. A long growing season coaxes the grapes to maturity slowly and consistently with a desirable balance of sugar and acidity – the perfect setting for the craft of sparkling wine

Enter Gloria Ferrer, the first sparkling winery in Carneros.

With a designated private tasting space, a level down from the hilltop winery and closer to the vineyards, Gloria Ferrer will delight your taste buds with a flight of 4 individual estate vintage sparkling wines. Shareable bites are also available for purchase. 

About Gloria Ferrer Wine Estate

José Ferrer championed his family’s dream of producing exceptional traditional method sparkling wine in the New World. In the 1980s, he ventured from Barcelona, Spain to Sonoma, California with his wife Gloria in search of the ultimate region to make sparkling wine. They settled upon Carneros. For the Ferrers, whose Spanish sparkling winegrowing experience goes back generations, the potential of Los Carneros was unmistakable, even before it became an established AVA. They recognized the ideal climate for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay — and thus the perfect terroir for brilliant sparkling wines. Known for: Pinot Noir dominant sparkling wines

About Anaba

At the heart of Anaba Wines lies the extraordinary journey of John Sweazey, the driving force behind this family-owned winery. John’s path to creating a world-class wine estate spans four decades and stands as a testament to his diverse experiences and unyielding dedication. Hailing from suburban Park Ridge, IL, John’s trajectory took him from studying business at Stanford University to venturing into computer sales and embarking on a transformative European exploration in a VW van. This adventure ignited his passion for wine and planted the seeds for what Anaba Wines would eventually become. The name, Anaba, is derived from the anabatic winds that flow through the vineyards that drive morning fog from the vineyards and bring in cooling breezes in the late afternoon.

Known for Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Rhone-style wines made from grapes grown on Anaba’s estate in Carneros, as well as from grapes grown by their long-standing Sonoma wine grower partners.
