This place has a small tasting room but don't let that stop you. Their Zinfandel is my personal favorite and you're likely to be served by David Rafinelli himself. Tasting is by appointment only.

If you like raw oysters on the half shell, pick up one or two dozen kumamoto or small sweetwater oysters. They farm them here and they're as fresh as can be. Borrow our ice chest before you go.

The wines here aren't my favorite, but the place is worth checking out. There's some interesting movie memorabilia and the pool area is fantastic. Pretty interesting stuff in the gift shop too.

This is a great beach access point. From the cliffs there are stunning views of large rocks in the water. Don't forget your camera. Good footwear is recommended until you get to the beach.

This really interesting rammed earth building has a large tasting room and lots of great wines to try. I like the Lytton Springs Zinfandel. The 3 Valleys Zin and Mataro are pretty good too.

We haven't tried this, but our cottage guests tried it and they thought it was terrific. My understanding is that it's a zip line tour through redwoods. Might be interesting for the adventurous types.

This is one of our favorite places, located in the historic, one street town of Geyserville. Meats are butchered & cured in house and the wood fired pizzas are delicious. So are many other items.
