La Follette Vineyard Designate Tours
Monday - Thursday, Reservation Only
La Follette Winemaker Greg La Follette favors cool vineyard sites that yield a maximum expression of terroir.
A fervent believer in letting the vineyard speak through the finished wine, Greg chooses extraordinary vineyard sites within California’s Sonoma County and Mendocino County AVAs, partnering with the region’s most knowledgeable growers.
Greg’s relationship with each of these growers is far more than just a common business arrangement – in many cases they are friendships shaped by years of collaboration. Working side by side, winemaker and grower work to cultivate grapes that reflect the very vine, block and vineyard they came from, so that La Follette wines may do so as well.
We invite you to join us for a tour and tasting hosted by Greg La Follette at van der Kamp Vineyard on Sonoma Mountain, one of our most prestigious vineyard sites. Tour will include wine tasting and picnic lunch overlooking the vineyard.
Seasonal, based on availability.
Please contact Bryn Kittredge, email@example.com to inquire about availability. Vineyard locations subject to change based on season.

We invite you to explore the opportunity to host your corporate gathering, special occasion party, or team building event, at our new tasting room, La Follette Wines at the Barlow
It's no surprise that the acclaimed wines of Greg La Follette gained such a loyal following over the years. Yet except for an occasional wine dinner or a Vigneron party, there were few opportunities to taste the wines; compare say a DuNah Pinot to a van der Kamp.
That has now changed. Visit The Barlow, a unique marketplace in Sebastopol and you can sample Greg's beautiful Chards and Pinots. For La Follette Wines, The Barlow seemed a natural fit, a nod to the region's agricultural roots. This new project brings together the very best winemakers, brewers, food producers and artisans in one place.
