Make Three Sticks Wines a priority for your next wine tasting excursion.
In 2012 proprietors Bill and Eva Price purchased the 170 year old home, Adobe.
No signage, so it feels hidden in plain sight.
Three Sticks received the coveted Fodor’s Travel Choice award!
Step inside the impeccably remodeled 1842 Vallejo-Castanada Adobe.
Like something out of Architectural Digest, a design masterpiece.
There are three buildings on the site:
The original house is the tasting lounge and kitchen.
The garage was converted into a second tasting room and wine storehouse.
A newly built cottage is used for offices.
Several mature olive trees were transplanted to the Adobe.
Consider yourself blessed to taste wine in this opulent, refined, lavish, creatively decorated and intimate setting.
Sit at a long elm table and absorb the stunning decor by renown San Fran designer, Ken Fulk.
Or relax outside at a cast stone table under a willow-covered arbor or next to the fire pit.
Sip wine and hear about the historical meaning behind each symbol on the exquisite mural.
GO TO THE BATHROOM and take an Insta Selfie.
That wallpaper though!

The name Three Sticks has origins from Bill Price’s teenage years.
His surfing buddies teased him about his formal name William Price III.
They gave him the nickname Billy Three Sticks.
