Anderson Valley Wine Country

Are you a wine country buff? If so, you must take a trip to the quiet and serene Anderson Valley. This view is one of many stunning scenes along Highway 128 as it heads towards the Pacific Coast. There are actually two wine country regions along this stretch of Highway 128. As you leave Cloverdale on Highway 101, drive for 16 miles. This is the Yorkville Highland AVA or wine appellation. Yorkville Vineyards is our favorite winery in this region but there are others: Yorkville Highlands Wine Association. Continue on Highway 128 to the historic and funky town of Boonville. This where the Anderson Valley begins. There are numerous wineries to visit, and it seems on each of our annual visits we discover new wineries and tasting rooms. The wineries are along a 14-mile stretch from Boonville to the town of Navarro. Lodging and restaurants are limited, so plan ahead as far as reservations. Our favorite thing to do is to spend a few hours in the Anderson Valley, and then move on to stay on the coast in Mendocino. Mendocino is a wonderful small town with many B&B’s, fine restaurants, and many other attractions.
