Need a respite from the dreariness of winter? This February visit verdant and picturesque Anderson Valley for the Winter White Wine Festival. Fashioned after a European winter market, the festival features the white wines of Anderson Valley with a special emphasis on our 40-year tradition of Alsatian varietals.
The Grand Tasting begins Saturday at 11 am, and features more than 30 wineries pouring Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, sparkling wine, and more. Shop hand-crafted goods offered for sale by a select group of local artisans. Savor seasonal small bites prepared by chefs from Mendocino and beyond and bid on library, rare and unique wines to benefit local charities. Enjoy live music to tie it all together! Bid on library, rare and unique wines in the auction supporting our local community.
We’ll begin the day with “Why Riesling?” – an interactive morning seminar highlighting the many styles of this exciting, cool-weather grape and including wine tasting and mouth-watering food pairings.
