Anderson Valley – where Pinot Noir grapes flourish

Above is the beautiful Anderson Valley located in Mendocino County. Between the small towns of Boonville and Navarro on Highway 128 is the heart of the Anderson Valley. The Anderson Valley is the land of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and other cool climate grapes. Our “Wine Country Photo of the Day” was shot at the Navarro Vineyards winery. Navarro is one of our favorite wineries. It is family owned, and the wines are consumer friendly priced. Read more about the Anderson Valley: Where to dine, lodge, and which wineries to visit.
