From the web site: "No visit to Sonoma is complete without a visit to Ravenswood Winery. No reservations are required to enjoy our decidedly non-wimpy wines in our tasting room. In fact, we specifically request you leave your reservations at home. At Ravenswood, there's no pinkie raising, brie eating, wine spitting wimpiness. Oh no. At the home of No Wimpy Wines, you'll get to taste mind blowing zinfandel, witty conversation with our behind-the-bar staff and, if you so choose, private or group tours of Zinfomania Central (the winery) and a blending seminar, where you'll learn how to make your own No Wimpy Wine. And of course we have a gift shop, the perfect place to pick up a present for someone back home who isn't as lucky as you are to be at Ravenswood. Stocked with shirts, blankets, blinking buttons, caps, aprons, bicycle jerseys, license plate holders, coffee cups, and wine glasses all inscribed with the famous Ravenswood logo, you're sure to find something that will make your suitcase hard to zip for the trip home. On any given day, a great selection of wines will be open behind our tasting bar, spanning the range of Ravenswood offerings, including Winery Only wines. But concentrating on — duh! — Zinfandel."
