Journey is one of the most recognizable bands in the world. Jonathan Cain, keyboardist, songwriter, and vocalist for this legendary rock band, ventured into a winemaking collaboration with Healdsburg, California winery owner Dennis De La Montanya in 2006. The result was Finale Wines, a unique blend of the arts, music and winemaking.
Over the years, Finale Wines has released a variety of extraordinary wines including a Chardonnay, Malbec/Zinfandel Rosé, Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, and Bordeaux-style red blends. Proceeds of these wines have proudly benefitted San Francisco Bay Area children’s charities, such as the Make A Wish Foundation.
We are now offering a tasting experience in the courtyard at our winery in Healdsburg. If you love exceptional winemaking as well as exceptional music, we welcome you to Finale.

Mike is awesome. Wines are awesome. Ambiance is awesome.
The review wouldn't let me proceed without rating food but of course we were wine tasting and there was no food involved.
I wanted to rate Finale because we had such a great time! Four of us sat in a lovely courtyard while Michael poured and described the different wines. His knowledge and stories made the wine even more interesting - and they are delicious wines!
The setting couldn't have been more perfect - this is a wonderful place to idle away an afternoon.
While it was a rainy day and we were required to be outside (under a tent) it was still a very enjoyable experience. Mike, our host, did an amazing job of describing the wines, the best way to appreciate any wine, and showcasing an amazing quality and taste of Finale wines. The ambiance was enhanced by a great background of Journey music and music of the Journey era.
There were three of us for the tasting, and Mike did a great job of some side-by-side tastings to illustrate the value of allowing wines to breath, as well as to compare the same wine but of different vintages.
This was the highlight of our day wine tasting - thank you!
