Iron Horse is best known for Sparkling Wines, which have been served at the White House since 1985, beginning with the historic U.S.-Russian Summit Meetings ending the Cold War, at the White House Millennium celebrations ushering in the new century, and most recently at the White House dinner honoring the Pope.
Our Chardonnay is considered a signature wine for the cool, foggy Green Valley region. Pinot Noir is the winery’s rising star wine.
Iron Horse has been named an American icon in a reference book published by Random House called “Icons of the American Market Place”. Listed in alphabetical order, Iron Horse takes its place between iPod and Jack Daniel’s, validating Iron Horse’s reputation as a brand backed by pride, passion and quality.
The winery was named after a railroad stop, which crossed the property at the turn of the century.

What you want to get from participating in FohBohWine?
Iron Horse is my family's winery. My title is CEO. I grew up in Paris, graduated from Yale University and worked in the news world for ten years before joining the winery. I have written four books. I love to travel ... especially for adventure. Foodandwine for me is one word.
I understand that you have a passion for wine. Well, that makes it two of us…
Anyway, I’m re-launching my website www.thewinehub.com in about a week and I’m looking for wine lovers (like yourself) to become “official bloggers” of the site and talk about their regions and their wine-related passions.
Would you be interested?
With my best regards,

Hi Joy, Thanks for your participation in our recent Wine Gives drive for the San Francisco Food Bank. Our Operatives responded by purchasing lot's of your fabulous Bdx-3! Looking forward to featuring your great wines again soon.
Joy, the first week of the month is always a little hectic for me, but if you are available Tuesday July 8th, I am pretty flexible that day. If there are other times that are better that week, I'm sure I could make it work. It was really great to hear back from you and I look forward to talking to you later. sincerely, Lindi
I have heard nothing but good things about Iron Horse wines! In fact we are looking at increasing the number of Sparkling wines we have available at AmericanWinery.com. Do you think this is something you'd be interested in discussing? Let me know! Thanks.

Our company is opening channels into China for exporting wine. We are able to tap an unique market for distribution but also delving into the regular market. High volume is mandatory, but we have an order for a smaller exploratory shipment. If you have a slate of bottles that you think would work well, please contact me if your wineries want to take part. Looking for low end and high end bottles. State-side or abroad. I would be happy to answer any questions via…
