October 2020: Pending local air quality and evacuation orders, we are currently conducting our tastings in the courtyard outside of our Barrel Room located at the Mayo Family Winery, 13101 Arnold Drive in Glen Ellen (corner of Arnold Drive and Hwy. 12) by reservation.
The En Garde Tasting Lounge’s chic stylings perfectly compliment its award-winning, small-production wines. Owner/Winemaker Csaba Szakál’s singular focus on Napa mountaintop Cabernets and Sonoma Pinots has been making a big splash on the California wine scene since his debut in 2007. Whether you’re a serious collector or a group looking to experience some of the finest wines in the region, En Garde’s two private tasting rooms and knowledgeable staff offer a variety of tasting options in a curated-yet-relaxed wine country setting.
Recent accolades include 98-points (Wine Advocate, April 2020) for the Napa cab blend 2016 Touché and 99 points for the Starkey Hill Pinot Noir from Russian River.

It was great discovering this gem of a boutique winery. Jay was our host and we loved learning about the wines and the winemaker. He was a great host too! We had an excellent time! And of course, the wines were superb! We'll definitely be coming back! Please check out En Garde and support small, local wineries. Great location near Sonoma square for lunch or dinner after your tasting!

One of our most, if not the most favorite places for us to taste in California. Csaba makes awesome wine, and he is a great host as well. We would recommend En Garde without hesitation.

We went this weekend for a simple wine taste and loved it. We got great service and tasted some wonderful wines. This is one of our top three wineries we love in Napa/Sonoma area. Their tasting room is in Kenwood, CA and they really care about putting out a great product.
