1. Re: Pick three wineries?

This area has so many small wineries that the possibilities are almost limitless.....

but a couple to consider would be:

1) Hop Kiln - Pond on property; friendly tasting room; nice place tor a picnic if interested,.

2) Gary Farrell

(Although Gary no longer owns this proiperty, this is a nice winery to visit on Westside Road with a beautiful view of the redwoods from the winery.

2. Re: Pick three wineries?

Thanks Mini, I will add those to the list of possibilities. Open to more suggestions for good, affordable wines in the area... Prefer small producers, and would be interested in Merlot, Carignagne, Cab Franc especially.

For champagne, we like Korbel. It has a good deli as well so great place for lunch spot with views of the redwoods. Its the last winery on the drive to Amrstrong Redwoods State Park (if you have not been there well worth seeing in the area.)

so many wineries, so little time....

have a fun time tasting.

Armida with its terrific deck and bocce ball. Take a picnic lunch like we did. VML was a new visit for us and a winner. For a small winery I would suggest Fieldstone over on the Alexander Valley side.

For Cabernet and Merlot, Hawkes and Robert Young are two family owned wineries that have excellent wine, both in the Alexander Valley.

In the Dry Creek Valley, Unti is a fantastic smaller winery, producing only about 4000 cases a year, with an interesting variety of wines. Since they are smaller, they do prefer a reservation for a tasting.

Mauritson Winery is also a family winery in the Dry Creek Valley, and will be on your way to Lambert Bridge (which is excellent), and is definitely worth a stop, particularly for their rockpile wines.

Ferrari and Ramey are two no-brainers. You're welcome
