Appelation –

[ a Love affair with wine & whiskey ]



Taste of Redwood Valley is a group of wineries and distilleries that get together to host fun events every year in the beautiful Redwood Valley area right off HWY 101! It is a time you can come to Redwood Valley and enjoy the fruits of the land, meet the proud farmers and winemakers, hear the history of our beautiful county and visit sites that are not always open to the public. We host three events annually; one in February, June and November where we welcome the community to come out and enjoy some of the world’s finest wines and spirits right here in Mendocino County!

Our unique Redwood Valley appellation runs along HWY 101 north in the inland Mendocino County grape growing region, which is distinguished from other appellations by its geographical elements, weather patterns, and most importantly by the generations of families who farm grapes in this micro-region.

Italian and Greek immigrants were the first grape growers to establish vineyards in the late 1880s. They sought out the benchlands above the headwaters of the Russian River where the soils were well-drained, the climate permitted the grapes to mature, but was still cool enough to allow the grapes to ripen slowly to enhance the deep, rich flavors of the grapes. Most all of these lands are still being farmed by the 4th and 5th generation farmers that take great pride in their land and fruits produced. Like Gina Gallo said in her 2018 very powerful speech at Unified in Sacramento while talking about all the new farming technology available, "But my grandfather has a saying: you can tell the quality of the vineyard from the farmer's footprint in that vineyard. You can ask a farmer who has been working the land for decades where the strongest vines are in the vineyard, and he can tell you."

That is exactly the farmers we have here in our beautiful valley.
