Mendocino County is a wonderful grape-growing and wine-producing area.
The county’s wine-growing areas can be divided into ten 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 near the city of Calpella
(north of Ukiah) and extends north between Potter Valley and the new Eagle Peak AVA.
Here, many distinctive wines are crafted, from deep, rich reds such as Cabernet Sauvignon
and Zinfadel to crisp Chardonnays and Sauvignon Blancs. 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. See our wine section starting on page 37, which includes Frey
Vineyards, Rivino Estate and Barra of Mendocino in the Redwood Valley and Ukiah area.
