The Grower’s Collective is a spinoff from the Napa-Sonoma Vineyard Group, a company that manages small, premium Carneros vineyards for others, utilizing cutting-edge viticulture research.
The Mercado off Sonoma Plaza to Grower's Collective Tasting RoomOne day partners James (Jim) Walker and Eric K. Glunt—after many years in the business—decided to make a big leap: they would not only grow their own premium grapes, but make their own great wine. And so, combining their names, they created Eric K. James Vineyards.
Their ideally-situated 17-acre vineyard carries designations for three appellations (Carneros, Sonoma Valley, and Sonoma Mountain) and grows Chardonnay, Syrah, and Pinot Noir grapes. The company produces small-lot, hand-crafted, single-vineyard designated wines.
Grower's Collective Tasting RoomThe Grower’s Collective Tasting Room is located in the Mercado, a Spanish-style courtyard-with-fountain entered from the east side of Sonoma Plaza.
The large, antique-filled tasting room is a bit tucked away and off that beaten path, which means that you’ll probably enjoy an intimate tasting experience.

Fascinating Fact:

Aside from its own Eric K. James wines, the Grower’s Collective features wines from Sonoma’s Fichtenberg Vineyards and the Syrahs of Wayne Fieldsa.
