Anderson Valley is a treat for the Pinot lover. You will not regret it. So many wines, so much time. I really enjoy Lula, Baxter, Navarro, PhillipsHill, Toulouse. Goldeneye is great but a bit overpriced.

If you like wines, specifically Pinot Noir, this is THE place to visit in northern Sonoma and Mendocino counties. Laid back, rural, beautiful and wooded, with terrific wines from very high end (Goldeneye, Breggo, etc.) to lower-priced but still excellent examples (Pennyroyal Goat Farm and...More

My husband and I visited the Anderson Valley wine country in June 2016. What a lovely area! We enjoyed tastings at several places and also took the goat cheese/wine tasting tour at Pennyroyal Farm in Boonville. (also highly recommend-- charming place!)

Charming town with a general store, restaurants (Aquarelle is top of the line) and gas station, and gift shops as well as a brewery and wineries. Make sure you stay at the Indian Creek Inn just west of Boonville!

I love the Anderson Valley. Beautiful rural drive and mostly small family run wineries. Most don't charge tasting fees and those that do waive the fee with a minimum purchase. Take time to explore some of the small towns along the way... there are some...More

There is so much to see and do as you travel through Anderson Valley. You can wine taste, picnic, or just enjoy this idealic valley and the scenery. Easy rolling curves and not too much traffic.

Forget Napa and Sonoma. If you want to get the authentic wine tasting experience without the tour buses and crowds go to Anderson Valley. It is beautiful and has a more authentic untouched rural wine country experience. I love visiting the wineries and camping in...More

I spent 6 days in Anderson Valley in April with 5 girlfriends. The place is a beautiful step back in time nestled between the ocean and the the farmlands full vineyards, sheep grazing and a few apple orchards. The people were friendly and sometimes reminded...More

After visiting Sonoma and Napa valleys, a drive through Anderson Valley is a welcome change. Winding roads, deep forests and beautiful scenery make it hard to beat. The pace is slower and the wineries more welcoming. Enjoy a visit on your way to Mendocino. Just...More

Yes, it's a beautiful road, and if I'd ride a bike through Highway 128 if I lived there. BUT You want to avoid the road. I don't know if it's possible to "go from winery to winery" ... "while avoiding SR 128." Google... More

We went only to wineries. We also went to my favorite brewery in country in Fort Bragg--North Coast. We also did not take any hikes although I assume there must be some. It was kind of odd that we noticed no obvious... More
I am helping my daughter and her fiance plan a honeymoon following their wedding in April, of this year. They will be flying in to San Francisco, probably stay one night there, then rent a car and head up the coast to stay in Point Arena. We are letting them take advantage of our timeshare, and that is really the only one in Northern California, so we HAVE to work with that. The scenery up in that area looks spectacular, so I know they will love that! They also love wine and will greatly enjoy the Anderson Valley Wine Region. My question is this. They are also big foodies, so I would love to give them some recommendations for great restaurants in that area! They will be checking out a couple of places as they come up 101 from San Fran, but I'd really like to find them so local places among the Anderson Valley Wineries. They will also head up the coast to Mendocino and possibly Fort Bragg. Any restaurant recommendations there? It's all about the food for these two, so although atmosphere is nice, they'd really prefer great local dives! I'd appreciate any suggestions you could give. Thanks!
