Guinness McFadden makes good wine, he also keeps his workers busy in the winter by drying and packaging herbs and herb blends. He also sells grass fed organic beef. Stop by, taste and take home some herbs and beef.

I took the advise of trip advisor and wasn't disappointed. Nice wines and a cute little shop. I love it when tasting rooms give you food paring with the wine. The price of wine is reasonable and the tasting is free!!

People driving through Hopland are likely to just slow down for the traffic light and glide on through. But don't make the tragic mistake of passing by this delightful winery tasting room - possibly the friendliest tasting room you have ever visited. There's such a...More

We stopped at McFadden for a wine tasting during a road trip through northern California, and it's one of the most generous tastings I've ever experienced. 12 different wines for free? Can't beat that. While we weren't completely bowled over by any of them, we...More
