Mendocino County is a wonderful grape-growing and wine-producing area. The county’s wine-growing areas can be divided into three distinct regions, one of which is the Redwood Valley. Every June on Father’s Day weekend, A Taste of Redwood Valley brings wine, food, arts and crafts, and fun to the area. The region starts just south of the city of Ukiah and extends north through the Potter Valley. Highway 101 runs up the middle of this scenic and delightful wine-growing region. Here, many distinctive wines are crafted, from crisp Chardonnays to deep, rich reds that are full of delicious flavors and aromas.
Organic vineyards are maintained throughout the area and produce unique, flavorful wine grapes. Small wineries produce their own specialty wines that you will enjoy sampling and tasting at the many different tasting rooms throughout the region. For more information, see our wine section starting on page 38.
