En Garde Winery
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.

No food but the wines were exceptional. The winemaker gave us thoroughly descriptive notes and great stories
En Garde Winery is always a pleasure. They are temporarily serving their wine in the courtyard of Mayo Family Winery. Everyone is making the best of our curious times. Csaba's has passion for winemaking and we love it. These wines are delicious. We love learning about each wine even though we probably won't remember any of it! It is always a joy to return to En Garde.
En Garde is a wonderful winery where you will not find the expected and what a delight. Jays and En Garde were spot on and personal. The wines all had a different character than the usual and expected - with a new tasting experience drawing out more unique flavors. Found the Pinots very drinkable and surprising as well as noteworthy. En Garde is the right sort of passion project and should be experienced. Hats off for embracing the challenges of COVID well.
Great experience. Jay was awesome, wine was great. Would recommend.
Scott and I attended the tasting with your member Chris Caputo. Jay was fabulous as he walked our way through a lovely tasting. We bought a few bottles and can't wait to open and enjoy. Thank you! -Melissa
Thank you Melissa! We enjoyed your visit and look forward to hosting you again!

Thank you so much! Glad you enjoyed the wine and experience- we look forward to welcoming you back again soon!
There is nothing like talking and tasting wine with a knowledgeable person.
Czaba was a great host, truly enjoyed his wines and the conversation.
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!
It was a pleasure hosting your group! Looking forward to your next visit!
Best wines.... wow! Service was great.
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.

Fantastic pinots and cabs from small lot boutique winery.
One of my favorite wineries in Sonoma. Service there is awesome too
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.
