We made the trip up to Fort Ross with high expectations. The drive up was indeed beautiful and the grounds, building and patio were splendid. However the actual wine tasting experience was sub-par. Perhaps two young women who helped us were new. Their knowledge of...More

While we enjoyed the wine tasting at Fort Ross, the ride up the winery was really cool - a winding single lane road up through the redwoods from RT 1. Nice patio deck for tasting in a casual setting with nice views. Off the beat...More

If you are on Hwy 1 near Jenner, I recommend a brief detour to Fort Ross winery. Tasting room is beautiful and the Pinot Noir wine is exceptional. I am not typically a red wine fan but the Stagecoach was an exception.
