Olive Oil, Wine & More Wine
Although only a few blocks long, the town of Hopland packs a lot into its short length. Its primary attraction, however, is a host of great winery tasting rooms, with more just outside of town.
Hopland’s focus is wine, boasting the area’s top-awarded wineries. It is home to 18 wineries, and there are eight tasting rooms in downtown Hopland alone, with more along Old River Road and Hwy 101. You can also sample organic olive oils and wildflower honey. Local wines can be paired with delicious food made from the freshest, local ingredients. Visitors can share tapas-sized small plates or tasty pizzas and farm-to-table salads, or for that matter sample Mexican food from a taco truck.
Some local hotspots will waive the corkage fees on any wine bottle purchased from a Hopland wine tasting room. Several Hopland area winery tasting rooms offer special complementary food and wine pairings. Wineries in the greater Hopland area hold two great gatherings for wine and food lovers each year, a spring and a fall Hopland Passport event
