One of the most beautiful family owned ranches in Mendocino County. Over 2000 acres with spectacular views of the vineyards, Bartlett pear orchards, Olive Trees, Redwood Grove, and 200 year old Oaks makes this one of the most desired stops for wine and nature enthusiasts. We invite you to visit our tasting room where you can experience the passion you will only find in a family owned boutique winery.

Very beautiful and comfortable place to visit and taste some great wines. The workers are friendly and knowledgeable. It's kid friendly if you really want to share this piece of heaven with your little buddy.

This winery is not only beautiful, but the wines are scrumptious. . The gift shop has wonderful local products from the winery. Don't forget to store at the strawberry shack as you pull in. Yum..
