Petaluma, California 

A River Town in the Heart of Wine Country


New Riverfront Winery + Entertainment Complex
Corporate Events Venue, and Motorsports Museum Location


Adobe Road Winery is building a cutting edge entertainment complex and state-of-the art winery, visitor center, tasting room, corporate/banquet facilities, and an automotive museum located in the center of downtown Petaluma directly on the beautiful and prestigious waterfront.

Much of the dirt work and initial foundation is done and construction will begin spring 2022; this building will allow us to take the “Best of the Best” from many wineries and operations and combine it into one premier location and capitalize on the incredible growth and location of Petaluma. The facility will include indoor and outdoor tasting rooms, a 3rd story 5,000 square-foot top deck for weddings and banquets, a historical motorsports museum, indoor and outdoor dining with a beautiful new pizza oven and located on the historic downtown waterfront.

Petaluma Tasting Room Highlights

Petaluma is home to one of the most vibrant communities in San Francisco’s Bay Area. And this is the community that Adobe Road is proud to call home. We like to call Petaluma the “starting line to Wine Country.”

Whether you arrive via car, boat or by SMART train, you’ll find a vibrant, bustling community of new world-class restaurants, hotels, arts and more, all anchored by Adobe Road’s new riverfront project, soon to break ground. 

Our new 16,000 sqft. facility will be an inventive and engaging urban space, housing our Adobe Road winery production operation, visitor center, tasting room, event facilities, outdoor activity area, and motorsports museum spotlighting our racing legacy, all overlooking the beautiful Petaluma waterfront. We know our new winery facility will become a destination location and an exciting place to share the splendor of Wine Country with friends and visitors.

Petaluma leads Sonoma County in economic development

His decision was one example of many in recent years that have made Petaluma the leader in economic development in Sonoma County. It has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the county — 4.1 percent in March — and the second highest median household income, at $75,655 in 2015.
The business activity has rapidly reversed the fortunes of this city of almost 60,000, which was hit with a one-two punch at the turn of the millennium — fallout from the telecom bust of the early 2000s and the real estate crash some six years later. At its low point, commercial office vacancy rates were 40 percent.

It’s going to be a great ambiance for the downtown. It’s exactly what the downtown ought to be building."
