About the Winery
The Korbel Winery was established by Bohemia-born Francis Korbel and his brothers, Joseph and Anton, in 1882 and is the oldest continually-operating sparkling wine house in North America. Nestled in California's Russian River Valley, Korbel follows the time-honored "methode champenoise" tradition. Korbel Winery offers a 50-minute tour through their historic sparkling wine cellars and history museum, ending with a tasting of their wines. Guests can also tour Korbel's impressive collection of roses and enjoy lunch at the winery's Delicatessen & Market.
