Rodney Strong Winery was founded in 1959, by Rodney Strong, one of the pioneers of the modern wine industry in California and Sonoma County. After changes in ownership and direction during the 1970's and 1980's, Rodney Strong Winery was acquired by Klein Family Vintners in 1989, a family-owned farming-based business, and returned to its vineyard roots.
Located just off U.S. 101 three miles south of downtown Healdsburg on Old Redwood Highway, Rodney Strong Winery is one of Sonoma County's most dramatic wineries and invites visitors to enjoy its hospitality center offering sampling of the medal-winning wines and balcony views of the winery's working centers, plus lush lawns for picnicking with vineyards in the background.
