Wine Tasting

You may think “Sonoma” or “Napa” when you think of touring wineries. But Mendocino County has nearly 40 wineries on three different tour routes.

If you’re coming to the coast from the north, you can visit the Redwood Valley and Ukiah area wineries. From the South, you’ll be driving through the Anderson Valley where you will find dozens of wineries. See list below of Valley wineries in Navarro, Boonville, Philo and Yorkville.

The county has two fine sparkling wine producers: Scharffenberger Cellars (formerly Pacific Echo) and Roederer Estates, both in Philo.

North of Fort Bragg:¬†Pacific Star features a¬†spectacular location on the coast about 15 miles north of Fort Bragg — a great spot for a picnic if you want to watch for whales or crashing surf.
