Korbel Champagne Cellars’ lush garden is one of Sonoma County’s top visitor destinations for good reason: Towering redwoods and the historic (circa 1882) Korbel House provide a spectacular setting for the garden’s colorful plantings, including 250 different rose varieties.
A visit to the Korbel Garden is an awe-inspiring experience. Winding footpaths lead to vibrant plantings of agapanthus, pincushion plants, irises, dahlias and roses — old worlds, hybrid teas and damasks — all framed by box hedges, clematis, plume poppies and a 30-foot-tall climbing hydrangea.
Many travelers make the garden the centerpiece of a visit to Korbel. In addition to taking in the garden, they sample Korbel sparkling wines in the tasting room, tour the historic cellars and enjoy lunch at the gourmet delicatessen.
Until mid-October, free guided tours of the Korbel Garden are offered Tuesday through Sunday at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. On major holidays that fall on a Monday, the garden will be open for tours that day, but closed the following Tuesday. The winery itself is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
