Pendleton ESTATE VINEYARDS & WINERY
Updated: Jan 12
Hidden jewel and treasure are words I’ve heard to describe Pendleton winery.
Driving to the winery is an adventure. Nothing treacherous but it’s fun to imagine, as you head out there, that you are galavanting around the European wine countryside.
Think Austria. Green rolling hills surround the winery. The kind of hills Julie Andrews frolics down while singing ‘the hills are alive!’
Located 2,000 feet above Alexander Valley. Getting here is a much needed retreat from civilization.
A 20 acre wine growing estate. On the property is the winemaker’s French Style Villa with Air B&B options for guests who want to stay.
Seriously, if I didn’t live so close by, I would be staying here for weekend getaways.
Pendleton is the NORTHERN MOST winery in Sonoma County.
Honestly, I can’t remember….is there even a tasting fee? I don’t think so.
If there is a tasting fee it is 100% worth it!
Michall, the winemaker, is incredibly down to earth. I get the sense he wants guests to savor his wines.
He’s not caught up in expensive barriers that limit people from approaching his wine.
Moderately priced wine between $24-$30 considering the fact everything he produces in 100 cases or less.
His wine goes fast!
