|About these ratings|
In The Silverado Squatters, Robert Louis Stevenson describes Schramsberg's founder Jacob Schram's "serious gusto" to produce incredible vintages that America and indeed the world had yet to taste. More than 150 years later, Schram's winery is still producing delectable wines, travelers say. Tours lead by friendly guides detail the property's history, the beautiful rows of vines and particularly, the winery caverns. Carved in the 19th century, these caverns hold approximately 2.5 million bottles of precious wine. Schramsberg is known particularly for its sparking vintages.
One TripAdvisor user exclaims: "Our tour was wonderful and sooo cool walking thru the thousands and thousands of bottles in the caves! After the tour we were seated in a beautiful tasting room to enjoy four sparkling wines and their cabernet, which is wonderful!"
