Welcome to The Scion House where we invite all guests to enjoy our home and share our heritage. It is our pleasure to provide guests with customized experiences.  For questions, please contact Lindsay Joule, Hospitality & Business Development Director, 707.395.3551 or lindsay@ryew.com.  .

 

We are currently open Wednesday through Monday for tastings by Appointment!  Due to regulations, there will be a food component to our tastings that will consist of local, seasonal items.  Appointment times are between 12PM-4PM, based upon availability.  Please call us for an appointment and for more information.  At this time, picnics and children are not permitted at the Winery.  

We are also offering curbside pick-up if you are a member, would like to purchase or are not quite ready to venture out.  Thank you for your continued support of Robert Young Estate Winery.  We look forward to seeing you again soon!  


Virtual Tastings

We enjoyed the opportunity to see your smiling faces through these unprecedented times.  As a 6 generation family ranch, we realized that these tastings were so fun for us all and were really appreciated by those that have not had the chance to visit us in person, or are located somewhere too far to visit often.  Join us in continuing this form of a tasting experience with our RYEW Virtual Tastings.  Days, times and specifics are meant to be customized to fit you and your guest’s needs.  Hope to “see” you soon!
