If you are headed for the Mendocino Coast, stopping at Navarro Winery and Handley Cellars (among other fabulous wineries) is a must. Both have lovely garden settings with clean picnic areas. Buy a bottle of Navarro pino noir (paired with cold poached salmon or chicken which you bring along) or Handley gewurstraminer (great with melon). Both make a perfect stop enroute to the coast. Staff are gracious, restrooms are clean. A great place to walk the dog. Another "must stop" is the Apple Farm in Philo to buy the worlds best jams and chutneys ($14 each and self-serve). The Apple Farm is also a great cooking school but book that well in advance. If you stay at the Apple Farm, beware of the rooster who welcomes the sun at 5am!
