Concierge.com's insider take:

Preston is one of Sonoma County's flagship organic wineries. In 2000, Lou and Susan Preston cut their wine production from 25,000 cases to 8,000 in order to farm more sustainably. An agrarian Shangri-La, the little winery looks like a storybook farmstead, with a white picket fence surrounding the Victorian-era house that serves as the tasting room. Rhône varietals and blends are the standouts here. While not all of them are impressive, there are several noteworthy wines, including a sauvignon blanc with sparkly citrus overtones, the rich barbera, and the L. Preston blend of syrah, cinsault, carignan, and mourvèdre. The tasting room also sells homemade bread, olive oil, and organic homegrown vegetables, perfect for a picnic in the shade of the hundred-year-old walnut tree outside the tasting room. Tasting fee $5, waived with purchase; no appointment necessary.

Open daily 11 am to 4:30 pm.
