Porter Bass Winery

Updated: Jan 12

Through the Redwood forest, over the troll bridge, past the gum drop meadow, under the twirly-swirly grape vines, hitch a ride on a fairies back, then knock three times on the hobbit door, drink the red potion and BAM! You’ve arrived.


  • So maybe you’ll want to double check my directions with Google Maps…but really…the drive to this appointment only Guerneville Winery is a must.

  • Located about 10 minutes from downtown Guerneville, 9 miles east of the ocean.

  • Enjoy the pretty drive on Mays Canyon Rd. before arriving at this small family owned winery.

  • ​You’re in coastal Russian River Valley wine country.


  • In 1980, the Bass family purchased the rundown century old 25 acre vineyard.

  • Surrounded by dense Redwood forests.

  • They arduously restored eroded, depleted soil overgrown with blackberries and poison oak.
