Sherman Cellars

Sherman Cellars serves as the exclusive tasting room for the red, white, sparkling, and dessert wines from Creekview Vineyards, a small-production winery. Many of these wines emerged with gold, silver, bronze, and best-in-class awards in 2011 at such events as the San Francisco International Wine Competition, Monterey Wine Competition, and Grand Cru Wine Competition. The Cellars’ wine educators exhibit their detailed knowledge of the wines as they provide guided tastings of each varietal’s flavor and bouquet in an intimate atmosphere, and also point out historical facts such as which grapes descended from dinosaurs. The wines they pour at each tasting draw their styles from a range of global regions, but have all been crafted from local grapes. Many staffers are also pairing aficionados, and channel their passion into regular tasting pairings, which introduce chocolates from local chocolatiers in Napa and Saratoga.

Customer Reviews

The wine tasting was fun and the location made it easy to make a day of it, close to restaurants and entertainment. I liked it so much I purchased more Groupons as gifts for my friends.
