I love, love, love this vineyard! If you go in the fall, you can taste the various grapes grown just for the customers to sample. If you are lucky you will meet Mike Grgich himself at the winery!

We attended the Movie on the Lawn member event (as guests) for the showing of the 100 Foot Journey. The pizza was excellent, the location and setting awesome and the Old Vine Cabernet was the best I've ever tasted. Thank you for a memorable evening!

Sorry but we are not allowed to sell food as part of our permit. We do offer wine and cheese pairings as part of an educational seminar. Call us at the winery @707-963-2784 for more details.
