Navarro Vineyards

Alsatian-style Gewürztraminer, along with old-vine Zinfandel, estate-grown Anderson Valley Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Riesling and sweet Muscat are what you can find and taste at the family-operated Navarro Vineyards.

The winery tasting room has an ideal setting overlooking their vineyards in Anderson Valley. The tasting room is an attractive wood-sided and shingled building down the hill from Highway 128. There are lawns, rose bushes, picnic spots, a great deck and plenty of wine. The tasting room is cozy, yet large enough to have two galvanized tasting counters and an attentive staff. A deli case provides simple picnic supplies, including artisan cheeses and locally smoked salmon, crackers and other snacks.

In addition to the dry Alsatian-style Gewürztraminer and Riesling, Navarro grows lots of Pinot Noir. In their vineyard are nine different sites dedicated to Pinot Noir with many different clones, rootstocks and trellis systems. Because of the diversity of fruit from this vineyard, the winemaker ferments and ages as many as 37 different lots of their estate-grown Pinots. Later, he blends these to create various styles of wine.
