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 San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, just outside the Russian River wine country town Hopland.
Our tasting room inside our olive mill building 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 cottage; the perfect spot for a summer picnic. We have also installed three electric vehicle chargers, two Tesla, one Clipper Creek. The olive mill building is 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 animal companions.
We offer various wine tastings featuring our award-winning unoaked Chardonnay, Rosé, Sparkling Wines, Merlot, Cellared reds including Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, and a rare chance to taste Petit Verdot by itself. We also offer olive oil tastings as well as educational tours of our olive mill, which we usually fire up early October after the 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 pet-friendly facility. We have our own cats roaming around hunting for mice and dogs watching in amazement. There's an aviary, home to rescued king pigeons and several 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.
We are 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.
