Come celebrate with us !

A Taste of Redwood Valley invites old friends and new to join us for our three annual festivals in northern California's Mendocino County.

Most of our wineries are too small to keep regular tasting room hours, so this is a rare opportunity to taste the wines and catch a behind-the-scenes glimpse of our small producers. Redwood Valley is in Mendocino County, a little more than two hours from both San Francisco and I-5.

Our next event... June 13-15, 2014

23rd Annual

Father's Day Dinner & Tasting Weekend

Friday, Saturday, Sunday
June 13-15, 2014

The seven wineries and brandy distillery of Redwood Valley are pleased to present our annual Winemaker Dinner on June 13, 2014.  This beautiful evening under the stars will be held at the Brown Family winery located at 1106 Bel Arbres Drive in Redwood Valley.  Experience the rustic beginnings of this new winery and enjoy sumptuous hors d’oeuvres, a multi course dinner paired with elegant wines and world class brandy accompanied by music performed by the Felt Tips.  At the end of the meal, scrumptious gourmet cupcakes will be served with dessert wines and brandy. Providing the authentic Italian fare, Bella Cibo Catering sources local ingredients and will provide options for those with dietary restrictions upon advance request.  This event is the perfect opener for a weekend filled with great wine, great food and great friends.

Then on June 14th and 15th, visitors can meander along the back roads of Redwood Valley to each winery and distillery to taste library wines, unique varietals, small production lots, craft-method spirits and experience the fun of tasting right out of the barrel. Guests will enjoy an array of food offerings, some live music, and local hand crafted items. Each winery is family owned and is unique in its setting, its wine and food presentations, and its welcoming ambiance. Visit with the winemaker, vintner, grower, or distiller and listen to their stories, ask technical questions and experience the wines and spirits of a truly unique appellation.
