Visit Trenton Roadhouse

We invite you to experience our wines as they were intended to be enjoyed: with beautiful vistas, lively conversation, and at an unhurried pace. Here, at our 60-acre Trenton Roadhouse in the Russian River Valley, banked by sloping vineyards, a rippling pond, and native oak groves, you’ll taste the confluence of site and season in your glass, as our wine educators walk you through selections of our single vineyard wines.

Due to our limited production and to maintain a personalized experience for all of our guests, we limit the number of daily seatings. All visits are by appointment Tuesday-Saturday for guests 21 and older only.

If you have any questions, please visit our FAQ section or reach out to us directly at reservations@kistlervineyards.com or (707) 657-7665
