Thank you for visiting Larson Family Winery. Here are some FAQs we get before visits!
Can I bring my kids? Yes! This is a family-friendly winery if ever there was one. Is there stuff for them to do? In addition to enjoying a fun picnic with their family, we’ve got lots of kid-friendly activities here at LFW for them! Kids enjoy playing soccer or catch in the pasture, making friends with the winery dogs, playing bean bag toss on our cornhole field, playing bocce ball, saying hello to Thelma and Louise (our resident goats) and getting up close and personal to real wine vines!
Can I bring my dogs? We like dogs so much we named our wines after them. You’re welcome to bring your dogs with you, but they must be on a leash at all times. Our three winery dogs, Rosko, Louie and Ollie are also here to greet you. They might even share their toys with you!
Do you have food for sale? We have a selection of light bites that pair well with our wines – crackers, cheeses, salamis, chips, etc. For anything more substantial, you’re welcome to bring in a picnic! In addition, we have a wide range of delicious chocolate sweets from Anette’s. (We’d say they’re great to take home with our wines, but they never make it there without us eating them first!)
How does the picnic thing work? We have picnic tables available to reserve in our outdoor back pad area. All picnic tables are either under a shaded structure or have an umbrella. Reservations can be made up to 24 hours in advance on our website, or by calling the Tasting Room. We ask that all adults at the picnic table partake in a tasting flight or by-the-glass booking to secure the reservation. We have tableside service on the weekends, so a Tasting Room Associate will walk you through your pours and education right at your table!
Can we picnic there without a reservation? Our weekends, especially when the weather is nice, are very busy. We highly recommend making a reservation to guarantee that a picnic table is available for you and your guests. They’re available at three times– 10:00, 12:30, and 3:00 PM – for a window of two hours each. We have a back pasture area (former home of the Sonoma Rodeo!) that is open for picnicking, however no glassware or alcohol is permitted in that area. We also have several first-come-first-serve seating areas, and small barrel setups that are great for snacks.
Is there anything else I should know about making a picnic reservation? Each table holds up to 10 adults. You don’t need to include children in the head count. Holiday weekends and weekends with Winery Events tend to fill up quickly.
Can we taste there without a reservation? Yes, if you’re just looking to walk in and learn more about Larson Wines, you don’t need a reservation. Tastings are available on a walk-in basis daily at our two tasting room bars. Reservations are not needed for parties of SIX or less.
