Welcome to Mendocino Wine Country
We are farmers, winemakers and artists — free thinkers who value our land, our people and our independent lifestyle. We create balanced, pure wines from grapes grown on unspoiled land, wines that express the individuality of Mendocino’s 10 diverse appellations. Our hospitality is genuine, our pace unhurried. Discover our small towns, meandering country roads and savor our wines.
Second Partnership with the USDA Announced!
On September 30, 2014, the USDA’s Risk Management Agency (RMA) approved the Mendocino WineGrowers, Inc. (MWI) application for a grant to fund their Grower Education Initiative Series, a comprehensive program that aids and facilitates grower operations throughout the region with key partners such as FarmLink, The Wine Institute, the University of California Cooperative Extension and others. In addition to these valuable relationships, MWI also works closely with the media and trade audiences to continue to raise awareness and promote the reputation of Mendocino County grapes and wines.
The grant in the amount of $99,384 will be used to support these key initiatives:
State of the Industry Summit
Succession Planning Workshop
Pruning Education Assessment Seminar and Contest
Grape Buyers Guide

Our generous sponsors!
