“With its stone wall and small subterranean cellar surrounded by a forest of valley oaks, Field Stone appeals to romantics who dream of what their personal winery should look like.”

–Heidi Dickerson, 50 Best Northern California Wineries

“An impressive lineup of opaque, burly, highly extracted, impressive reds continue to emerge from this low-profile, Sonoma winery.”

–Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

In a Nutshell…

Field Stone Winery was founded in 1977 with its own celebrated estate vineyards dating back to 1894.  It is owned and operated by John & Katrina Staten and their family.

Praised by visitors for its hospitality and unique rustic beauty, the winery is a fascinating, small, underground facility carved into a picturesque oak knoll in the midst of its rolling vineyards in Sonoma County’s beautiful Alexander Valley.

Known primarily for its award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and century-old vine Petite Sirah, Field Stone is also recognized for its select, handcrafted quantities of other award-winning, low-production wines: Sangiovese, Syrah, Viognier, Chardonnay, Rosé of Sangiovese and Vintage Port.  We have also introduced our new Convivio companion wine, made from our Merlot and Cabernet, from which we donate a portion of the proceeds to Clinica Alianza, a nonprofit medical center serving farmworkers and their families in Sonoma County.

Field Stone’s winery and vineyard estate is located conveniently on Highway 128, the key artery linking northern Sonoma County and Napa Valley (the winery is just seven miles from Healdsburg and fourteen miles from Calistoga).  Its cozy and inviting underground tasting room is open from 10 to 5 seven days a week.  Its picnic ground, under its spreading oaks, has been called “one of the best spots for a picnic with a vineyard view in the Alexander Valley” (Laura Finnegan, Sunset Magazine).  Vineyard and winery tours can be arranged ahead of time by calling the winery at 1-800-54GRAPE, or by e-mailing us at tastingroom@fieldstonewinery.com.
