Our Tasting Room
Wine tasting in Mendocino County embodies the true spirit of getting off the beaten path. We are located about 1.5 hours north of the Golden Gate Bridge on Highway 101, just outside the Russian River wine country town Hopland.
Our pet and family-friendly solar-powered tasting room offers a unique crowd-and-traffic-free experience. Upon arrival you will see native plant and vegetable gardens, our CCOF-certified organic vineyard, lots of olive trees of all sizes, many of which are for sale, and there's the rustic "tasting shack" where there's a deck with a table covered with grape vines; a perfect setting for a summer picnic. We have also installed three electric vehicle chargers, two Tesla, one Clipper Creek. We've also turned the inside of our warehouse into an art gallery decorated with paintings of all sizes, sculptures, and reclaimed wood furniture, all hand-crafted by local artists. We are able to comfortably host groups of 1 to 200 so there’s no need to worry if you’ll be traveling with the whole family, including the dog(s).
We offer wine and olive oil tastings where you can try our Chardonnay, Meritage, Cabernet, Rosé and others, all made with our own organically-grown grapes. We also feature olive oil tastings as well as educational tours of our olive mill, which we usually fire up in late September after grape harvest. Come in at the right time and you might be able to see the mill in action and/or taste the freshest olive oil you could ever imagine!
We mean it when we say we are a kid and pet-friendly facility. We have our own cats roaming around hunting for mice and unfortunately, lizards. There's an aviary, home to rescued king pigeons and a couple chickens; we also have a few recent additions in the form of four goats who all love to fight for attention as well as a flock of sheep out back to help keep the weeds down.
As an added bonus we are just one of over fifteen different tasting rooms in the area, all of which are just a short drive within each other so it's quite easy to make a day of it. Each winery has their own unique story and specialty from biodynamic wines to obscure varietals as well as spirits.
We hope to see you soon!
