Winery
Located in the Heart of Sonoma Valley, Loxton Cellars is a working winery surrounded by 5 acres of estate vineyard. It is the intent of owner/winemaker, Chris Loxton, to produce handcrafted wines, made without compromise, that show balance and a sense of place.

Wine tastings (no food) are currently offered by reservation and take place outdoors allowing guests to enjoy a lineup of handcrafted wines while taking in breathtaking views of the Mayacamas mountain range.

Tastings are $20/person, include a flight of 5 wines and offer a casual and educational experience. In the event of rain we do have you covered, but it can be a bit chilly this time of year so we suggest bringing layers. While we do not sell or serve food, you are welcome to bring snacks or lunch to enjoy in the picnic area. If you do not see the time you are looking for available give us a call at 707-935-7221 and we may be able to accommodate.

Best winery experience of our trip! Winemaker was incredibly generous with his time and knowledge; we learned so much about winemaking and viticulture in the Sonoma Valley. Plus the wines were wonderful! Thanks Chris!

There are many wine tasting experiences in Napa and Sonoma to choose from. After touring many large vineyards we went to Loxton and couldn’t have been more pleased. We got to speak with the owner and winemaker himself who answered all of our questions, we learned about his process, and got to taste amazing wines. We found the assortment of wines at Loxton much better than the $100 wines served at many of the fancy places. You could tell they were made with love from someone who has a true passion for wine.

Pleasant experience tasting wine and watching that vineyards. The personnel was very friendly.
(One star for food because there is none, which is expected.)

We stopped last minute on the way to Sonoma. It was a great decision. We got a tasting with winemaker Chris Loxton and aside from great wines, Chris was very hospitable, down to earth and willing to share the knowledge of the industry.

Our sommelier Lisa was fantastic! It is a micro-winery and that experience you are craving for a 1st trip to wine country was fulfilled! We met with the owner Chris Loxton and got to learn all about the winery and the varietals that 4 generations of grape growers really puts his heart into. Every wine was delicious and the experience was fantastic and memorable- we’ll be back!

Enjoyed an intimate wine tasting with a breathtaking view. Learned about the history of the vineyard and wine making process from the winemaker himself. Great wine and great atmosphere. Will visit again and would encourage others who are looking for a special experience.

Loxton Cellars is a charming vineyard. We’d been there once before and wanted to revisit. We loved the Syrah and the port. Barrett, our sommelier, was very knowledgeable and made our tasting a pleasurable experience.

Our experience at Loxton was ok. The wine and winery were nice but our hose was not very engaged.
