The lovely Freeman Winery where their cave is located and for inside visits guests enjoy a tasting inside the cave. They also offer outside tastings on picnic tables which are perfect during COVID for a more socially distanced experience with lots of fresh air.
Views from an outdoor tasting I enjoyed at Freeman Winery (during COVID). During COVID the outdoor tasting at Freeman Winery is perfect you enjoy the tasting outside on one of their lovely picnic tables.
Those of you who are unfamiliar with Freeman Winery, you should get to know them. Since 2001, Freeman has been producing stunning cool-climate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay Wines that I adore. I first met Akiko at Pinot Days at the Farallon and the moment I tasted her Pinot Noir Wines I fell in love. They’re so delicate, lovely, silky with great body and complexity. After visiting and getting to know Akiko and Ken Freeman even better the love affair with Freeman Winery has continued. Read more about their lovely wines and winery below. When you plan a visit please be sure to tell them I sent you!
The line up of Freeman Winery Wines we enjoyed during our first.
For my first visit we tried their two Chardonnay Wines and three Pinot Noir Wines. What I love about the Freeman Wines is each wine has a distinct flavor and profile such as the two Chardonnays the Sonoma Coast is a lighter, cooler climate style where the Russian River is bigger with more rich flavors. There really is a wine for everyone!
