Navarro Vineyards

California, the most populous state of the United States, located on the Pacific coast of North America is bordered by Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and Mexico. California's landscape is as diverse as its people. From foggy coastlines to dry endless deserts, lush green mountains to rolling hills of vineyards. A morning of snow boarding in the mountains and then ocean kayaking at sunset, this glorious Golden State offers it all.
Navarro Vineyards has been growing grapes, making wine and producing non-alcoholic grape juices in the Anderson Valley in coastal Mendocino since 1974. Since they are small, the majority of their production is sold directly. Navarro takes satisfaction in producing wine bottles without a bar code for the same reason they enjoy shopping at the local farmers market. They value shaking hands with the people who grow the food they eat and they know many of their customers feel the same way about the wine and juice they purchase from their farm. They carefully tend their vineyards and only purchase grapes from neighbors whose farming they respect.
Navarro Vineyards provides tasting for no charge for tasting and no reservations. Navarro offers a wide selection of different products, both from the vineyard and from the tasting room. They are releasing four dry whites, two multifaceted reds and a succulent Cluster Select Riesling. Six of the seven have won Gold Medals and five of them garnered Best of Show or Class. The majority of their Sauvignon Blanc is aged in chilled temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and a smaller portion in 135 gallon French oak puncheons. Bordeaux makes their Sauvignon Blanc with Semillon for adding depth and roundness to Sauvignon's racy acidity. Navarro follows this Bordeaux tradition.
At the time of Family traditions Gewurztraminer Grape Juice wine is an acquired taste for wine lovers. The Pinot Noir juice is a lovely garnet color and has hints of cinnamon while the Gewurztraminer is golden and smells like lichee and tropical fruits. Chardonnay Verjus is picked when the grapes are much tarter.
There are many wonderful famous as well as some not so well known areas in California Wine Country that are just right for an enjoyable day of wine tasting. It’s always best to get off the beaten track and find the other gold that still exists and enjoy the beautiful scenery along these wine trails in this beautiful State.
