La Rocca Vineyards

LaRocca Vineyards was born in 1984 when Philip and Judy began farming 110 acres of unkept Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot wine grapes, on Doe Mill Ridge in Forest Ranch, California. Philip and Judy transformed the vineyard to a thriving, successful certified organic operation. LaRocca Vineyards is located at 2600 feet elevation on the lower southern slopes of Mount Lassen.

Clarskburg Wine Company

Neighboring the city of Sacramento, and nestled along the Sacramento River, the Clarksburg appellation provides a premier location for growing high quality grapes. Delta breezes provide a microclimate that brings out the true potential of the grapes. Clarksburg Wine Company is committed to producing world-class wines from these signature grapes and willing to place their wines shoulder to shoulder with wines from California’s other great wine growing regions.

Vinum Cellars

Vinum Cellars wines are poured daily at the tasting room of the Napa Wine Co. in the heart of Napa Valley, Oakville, at the same facility where they are produced and bottled. As a Custom Crush facility, Napa Wine Co.
The tasting room has been recently renovated and features many highly acclaimed wine brands in one tasting location. It is open daily from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Private Tastings are available by appointment.

Margerum Wine Company

Margerum Wine Company is committed to creating handcrafted wines using only the highest quality grapes so that we can make wines that are indicative of the place where they are grown. We strive to make wines naturally, to make wines that have individual characteristics and to make wines with personality. The scale of production is kept at a level where we can touch and know the wine as it is raised to the bottle – the antithesis of mass production. Margerum Wine Company make wines they personally enjoy – some to drink young, all for the table, and others for long aging in cool cellars for later enjoyment.

Foxen Vineyard

The Foxen Boys (aka Bill Wathen and Dick Doré) have been making wine together since 1985, when they founded Foxen Winery & Vineyard at the historic Rancho Tinaquaic on Foxen Canyon Road.

Willow Creek Wine Co.

In 2017 Brain and Natalie Brown moved to Paso Robles and Sona Estate on Vineyard Drive in the Willow Creek District was born. In addition to growing their own fruit the couple have spent years fostering with other wine grape growers as far south down the Central Coast as Santa Barbara, to as far north as Sacramento Delta and Napa Valley. The wines produced are clean, site driven wines with minimal intervention in the cellar. This couple sees eye-to-eye on style and technical details but ultimately the loyalty to a promise never to bottle a wine that both would not drink. Willow Creek Wine Collective is an appropriate name as Brian and Natalie produce wine under multiple brands and have brought them all together under one roof.

Due to possible restrictions during the Pandemic please contact the Willow Creek to make reservations so that you can enjoy their wine selections. 

Vino V Wines

After 14 years making wine at two world class wineries (Mount Eden Vineyards and The Ojai Vineyard) Michael & Anita Meagher started up Vino V Wines in 2004 focusing on the goal of making distinctive wines from grapes grown in the cooler growing regions of Santa Barbara County.

Story Winery

Driving up, the place is quite understated. Once you walk around the side of the tasting room and see the view you have to just stop and admire the beauty. Easily one of the best views in the entire valley! Going inside the tasting room you're greeted by a very personable staff. They all have genuine smiles on their faces and welcome you in. The tasting menu is well balanced here with a nice selection of red and white wines that should work for most any taste.

Pope Valley Winery

This hidden gem of a winery boasts a no-frills approach to great wine. Their taste is a bit different -- fruity & light merlots, light cabs, amazing port.

The true gem here is Petra. She's a great conversationist and has remembered me and my friends every time we come. This one is WAY out of the way, but a completely unique experience in Napa. The basic tasting was free, and the reserve tasting was $15. The wine was pretty good and the bocce court outside was a nice distraction. The place is like a deserted farm with dogs wandering around and unfinished road through the vineyard. It is NOT fancy, but it is often deserted and gives you the feel that you are in your own country vineyard.
