We are a true garagiste winery in the heart of Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley. Founded in 2000 by Stew Lauterbach and his wife Barbara Swary, we have been growing and making award winning wines in our garage since 2003. We purchased our land in 1992, planted pinot noir in 1996 and Syrah in 1998. Our first commercial Pinot Noir and Syrah was in 2000, produced for us at another winery. In 2003, we moved production to our garage where we have been making our wines ever since.
Lauterbach Cellars is open by appointment only. Since there are only Stew and Barb, we can’t man the tasting room daily. Give us a call for a mutually convenient time to accommodate you.
Our educational winemaking tour on a Garagiste scale takes about an hour and half. We usually include barrel tasting and sometimes some blending, and are always willing to modify to meet your interests.
Give us a call 707-578-0537 or Cell 707-495-0985 or e-mail [email protected] for an appointment.

Great Family Winery
My brothers and their wives along with me and my wife stopped in and tried some of their great wines. The Owners were wonderful and told us a great deal about their wines.
