Philo

If you blinked, you might miss the tiny town of Philo located in the very heart of Anderson Valley. The town might be tiny (pop. 349) but it’s the center of great wine tasting and intriguing lodging options. The nexus of “downtown” is Lemon’s Market, a mainstay for over 40 years. There’s plenty of wine tasting at the big estates such as Goldeneye and Roederer, and the small operations like Witching Stick. Home to Hendy Woods with the wandering Navarro River and giant trees, make Philo a stop on your journey through beautiful Anderson Valley.
