At Pacific Star Winery visitors are spellbound by the stunning views while
enjoying an extensive selection of uncommon varietals and signature blends from Mendocino County’s heritage vineyards. The winery sits atop an active fault officially called the
“Pacific Star Fault” named after the winery by geologists upon its discovery in 2006.
The winery’s cellar and tasting room sit over sea caves where the crashing waves below help to naturally filter the aging wine from its sediment. Because of its proximity to the ocean, salt from sea air gathers on oak barrels, and accelerates osmosis, creating unique wines. The atmosphere is casual, friendly and fun. Snacks are available if you decide to stay awhile, or you can pack your picnic basket and sit atop the cliffs as the waves crash and break on the rocks below; the winery’s spectacular site offers breathtaking coastal views. In the springtime this is the perfect place to see California gray whales pass by on their migration route.
Pacific Star has a comprehensive website where visitors can view photos of the winery and its beautiful location, learn more about its unique wine making process, seek out event planning, join the wine club for specials and discounts on wines you won’t find anywhere else, and check their tasting hours.
