Bartholomew Park Winery Sonoma Reviews
Wine in the hospital Jun 09, 2009
This is a very young winery that was founded in 1994. The vision was to produce handcrafted, site-specific wines. Bartholomew Park's 37-acre Estate Vineyard is located at the base of the Mayacamas Mountain range in Sonoma Valley. The unique setting of this vineyard, tucked up against Arroyo Seco, enjoys some warm temperatures, constant breezes and excellent drainage which is typical of higher elevation sites.
This only some of the history you get when you visit. We were also told that this place used to be a hospital. It has some really unique features including the craftsmanship of the wooden beans. The museum included some pretty cool exhibits including soil samples, a topographical map and pictures illustrating present-day vineyard practices throughout the Sonoma Valley. It was really interesting
The wine was pretty good with each varietal having its own story. I seemed to enjoy most of them. They were reasonably priced from $20-$40.
The vines at the estate were replanted a few years ago to make the vineyards all organic. They also received an organic certification in 2005. There wines are sold exclusively through their tasting room and wine club, so have them ship you a few bottles home.
