Lloyd Davis opened Corner 103 on the historic Sonoma Square in April 2015. His goals were to create a unique environment where his guests would feel comfortable learning all aspects of wine in a friendly, non-intimidating, and fun way; continue his track record of producing approachable, award winning wines; and demonstrate the proper way to pair wine with food. He wants his guest to understand that they are the “wine expert”! Lloyd believes too many people rely on their “wine expert” friends to tell them what’s good. But in reality, no one needs anyone to tell them what they like and don’t like!
Corner 103 offers a unique wine/food tasting experience. It’s by appointment, seated, unforgettable, intimate and distinctive. The goal is to help you understand how wine and food work together to bring out the distinct flavor characteristics of each. You will also be guided through the nuances of each varietal and learn how wine should be tasted, what glass it should be served in, and the correct temperature to store and serve it.
This gay-owned winery is a must-visit for all wine lovers, whether expert or novice, coming to Sonoma Valley. Corner 103 was named America’s Best Tasting room by USA Today!
Pinot Noir (80%)
Pinot Meunier (10%)
Appellation: North Coast
This wine was crafted from Pinot Noir (80%), Chardonnay (10%) and Pinot Meunier (10%) using the traditional methode champenoise.
This beautiful salmon-colored wine opens with inviting aromas of strawberry and rose. Flavors of freshly-picked strawberry, red raspberry and brioche dance upon the palate, with a pleasingly full finish.
The Corner 103 Sparkling Rosé is a delicate rosé wine that uses a blend of varietals to achieve a balanced and pleasing flavor. The classic Methode Champenoise is used to craft this wine, and the cool climate of Carneros in Sonoma County is ideal for growing delicate sparkling wine grapes. The cool ocean breezes allow fruit to mature slowly, keeping its crisp and pretty flavors. This sparkling wine is perfect for any special occasion.
