Truly remarkable Pinots. Enough said. We are semi-local, so we know our Pinots.Our hostess was one of the owners, so super knowledgeable about the wines and the winemaking process.Tastings were $45 for at least 5 tastes. Fees waived with 3 bottles purchased.

Wow. Hands down the best Pinot Noir I’ve had. Marta hosted our group of four and was absolutely phenomenal at educating and entertaining us while pouring taste after taste of the finest expressions of terroir and expert winemaking. Bravo!! Thank you Marta!

One of my favorite wineries in Sonoma! Located in the cutest town of Glen Ellen right across the street from the best restaurant, the Glen Ellen Star. They have a darling tasting room and made us feel so comfortable. As a Pinot Noir lover, they do an all Pinot flight (its their speciality). I personally loved their Weir Vineyard Pinot Noir and Gunsalus Pinot Noir. Bonus, their team was really lovely, Grayson took amazing care of us! A must stop winery, we will be back!

Talisman was such an experience that we went back the next day for more! My boyfriend and I came to Glen Ellen for a relaxing weekend for my birthday. We were staying across the street at Glen Ellen Inn Cottages and decided to walk to Talisman. This was an intimate experience. We sat down on a couch and Mathew told us stories about the delicious Pinot that we sampled. His storytelling was captivating and it brought us back again the next day for more. This was more than a tasting, it was entertainment and experience. We laughed and shared stories. We will be back again anytime we drive through. Cheers!

The wines are always stunners. As a purveyor of fine wines I can never decide which wine is my favorite. A must visit for Pinot enthusiasts.

Absolutely amazing experience at Talisman Wines Tasting Room! Came with a total of 11 girls & they were so accommodating towards us. We learned a lot about the production process of wine & the different pinots that they offer. Amanda & John could not have been better to us:)

This "tasting room" is a true gem ! When we set foot into this tastefully decorated place we immediately felt at home. Beautiful art, comfortable seating and wonderful hosts. Amanda guided us along a tasting journey where we ourselves, all of us individually, got a personalized tasting experience. Along the way, Amanda kept asking questions and based on our answers she took us to the next stations on our tasting journey. First time ever that we experienced anything like this. We felt "seen and heard" and awarded with a wonderful educational wine experience. Highly recommended !!

Great wine, great lounge, great tasting venue, great staff, amazing wine maker. Just overall great experience every time we come. The staff is knowledge and eager to please and teach about the wine, the Vineyards, the process, etc. If pinot, small lot productions, cozy atmosphere, and education is your jam, then this place is definitely up your alley. Cheers.

Love their wines! I joined their wine club after tasting their Adastra Pinot Noir. I don't remember the vintage. All their wines are superb.


First, amazing Pinot!! I mean all of them (although I have my favs), and that's everything. Second, an adorable tasting room in the quaint village of Glen Ellen. that looks and feels like your visiting your best friends. Third, Grayson! Professional, informative, generous, and super fun! And lastly, I have to give kudos to the whole team for their generous support of community nonprofits. Having been to their tasting room and purchased their wines, when I saw their donation of a private at-home tasting at the Giant Steps Therapeutic Equestrian auction, I made sure to be the successful bidder. It was an amazing experience for me and my guests. Thank you @talismanwine and Grayson!

Our first time visit to the tasting room at Talisman Wines was exquisite indeed. Grayson and John were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. My husband and I were already big fans of Talisman Wines but today's supreme wine-tasting experience went beyond my best expectations. Do put a visit to Talisman Wines on your list for a top wine-tasting and viticultural learning experience.

Small production of pinot noir from a wide variety of vineyards in Sonoma and Mendocino Counties. You will definitely find several that you will like. They also have several vintages availability which is unusual and a real treat. Located in a cute house in the heart of Glen Ellen. A little out of the way but worth the drive.

We were lucky to visit when Martha (co-owner) was there. She was a super host and answered our numerous questions and made us try their key wines. Awesome Pinot Noirs! They also experiment with Nebbiolo (Italian native grape variety), that was interesting. Good experience for PN lovers.
