Corner 103 was founded by Lloyd Davis as a result of his passion for wine and recognizing that most people are intimidated by it.
At Corner 103, we love to share our passion for food and wine and the Sonoma Valley lifestyle. Our concept is simple, celebrate our local bounty by making elegant/award-winning wines, sharing delicious food prepared by local partners, and creating a warm and welcoming space where guests can relax, slow down and enjoy the finer things in life!
Lloyd opened Corner 103 on the historic Sonoma Square in April 2015. Its name is drawn from its location, on the corner of West Napa Street and First Street West, and the address of the tasting room, 103 West Napa Street. His goals were to (i) create a unique environment where his guests would feel comfortable learning all aspects of wine in a friendly, non-intimidating, and fun way; (ii) continue his track record of producing approachable, award winning wines; and (iii) demonstrate the proper way to pair wine with food. He wants his guest to understand that they are a “wine expert”! This is because everyone knows what they like and don’t like. Too many people rely on their “wine expert” friends to tell them what is 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. We create an environment where you will feel comfortable learning all aspects of their wines in a friendly, non-intimidating way. Our 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.
Corner 103 is a “must visit” for all wine lovers, whether expert or novice, coming to Sonoma Valley. It was ranked as one of the top 10 best wineries in the country by USA Today and has 5-star ratings on Yelp and Trip Advisor! Our wines have won multiple gold medals. When you finish this experience, our wines will have amazed you and you will be able to impress your friends with the depth of your wine knowledge! We hope you have an opportunity to join us for an unforgettable experience!
