B.R. Cohn Winery Description

Founded by Bruce Cohn in 1984, B.R. Cohn Winery is located in the heart of Sonoma Valley. Bruce Cohn bought the land now known as Olive Hill Estate Vineyards in 1974. 

The small family operated winery is surrounded by the 90-acre Olive Hill Estate Vineyards, where soils warmed by underground natural hot springs and gentle ocean breezes create a unique microclimate resulting in ideal growing conditions for Cabernet Sauvignon. B.R. Cohn also produces Merlot, Pinot Noir, SyrCab (a unique blend of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon), Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, Cabernet Port, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

The tasting room is located on small hilltop overlooking vineyards, garden sculptures and olive trees. Th house was used as a stagecoach stop for Wells Fargo, where horses on their route from Santa Rosa to Sonoma stopped to be watered. The source of Olive Hill Estate’s water is an artesian well that comes from the underground aquifer. The room has a mahogany tasting bar and back bar. Be sure to visit the gourmet shop  adjacent to the tasting room to sample the olive oils and hand-crafted vinegars.

In addition to its award-winning wines, B.R. Cohn makes world-class California olive oils and vinegars.The Estate Olive Oil is crafted from 140-year-old French Picholine olive trees imported from France in the mid 1800s, which surround the estate.

Mr. Cohn is the manager of the successful Doobie Brothers Band.

This place is adorable. There is a gourmet shop where you can taste mustards and tapenades...YUM! The tasting menu offers 4 tastes. I suggest Boater's Barbera, it is smooth and like no other Barbera I've tasted.
