A very nice winery right off the road, convenient and beautiful. Sit back, relax and enjoy! A nice fire pit in the back yard area for you late birds that want to enjoy a fun evening.

“One of the best kept secrets!”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

I'm local and have my choice of visiting one of 100+ wineries in Mendocino County. Yep, there are that many. If you want sip excellent wine and enjoy a million dollar view, this is the place. I enjoy the friendly atmosphere and I LOVE all of the wines. They are made in small lots with great care. If your lucky you might even get to meet Benny the beagle. :) This is a spot not to be missed.

“Viognier My New Favorite White”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

This is a very nice family vineyard. I only wish it was a Friday since they have music and happy hour so we could have stayed longer. We visited on a Saturday afternoon and sampled their wonderful wines. Fell for the Viognier. Bought a bottle and thought, why won't PA permit wine to be shipped into our state. Would have joined Rivino's wind club in a heartbeat. Great tasting and visit.

“This is how to spell Viognier”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Imagine your husband starts making wine in the barn and can't stop. If he is making award winning Viognier, then tell him to go for it. If your husband isn't this guy, stop by Rivino Family winery for a bottle or six or 12. Viognier is a white wine grape that Rivino transforms into a slightly more sweet than dry, flavorful wine that reminds you of a sunny day's picnic in your grandparent's orchard with all family and friends sitting around bread, cheese, fruit, cold chicken and salads. Not bad, considering it was a raining cats and dogs on a pretty cold day in October when we dropped by.

Located right off (and I do mean immediately off) highway 101, Rivino is a small family owned winery with a few very good varietals and one very great viognier wine. The open air tasting "room" is on a small deck overlooking the vines. Not fancy, but the price of a bottle doesn't include the all too common "chateau markup" of the bigger vinyards. If you want a chateau, there are five other wineries within a couple of miles of Hopland, If you want voseigner, stop here.

“Nice family atmosphere”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Parents come into town for a visit. Went to Rivino Winery to visit. Loved it. Staff was great. Very family like atmosphere. Staff makes you feel at home. Rivino made a nice impression with the hospitality and mannerism. Wonderful place and great wine of course.
