Just Cracked Open our Latest Petite Sirah...Smooooth!

We just got our delivery of the limited production, 2006 Petite Sirah in our Coastal Vines line, exclusively at Stevenswood.

This is a big red wine, with rich and intense flavor, but not over-powering in the sense of some Petite Sirahs.

The grape variety, also know as Durif, is nicely represented in this bottle of 06.

With a nice dense blackberry tone, notes of the traditional black pepper and a color that is the deep garnet red often characteristic of this wine.

Stop in to the Wine Bar at Stevenswood, open daily 12 to 4:00 PM for a free wine tasting to try it for yourself.

Londer Goes Legit!

Londer Vineyards, a small family winery that focuses on producing the best handcrafted wines now has a retail tasting room, right in the heart of boutique Boonville.

Part of the quaint village, located along of the 128, almost exactly half-way between the 101 and the Pacific Coast, this town is experiencing a revitalization, with fine art galleries, cute little shops and over 1/2 a dozen new winery related businesses.

Stop in to say hello Thursday thru Monday, 11:am to 5:pm. (707) 895-9001

In the new John Hanes Fine Art Gallery & Studio, in the heart of Boonville, just steps across the street from the famous Boonville Hotel.

Mendocino has yet another reason to be proud of our rich offerings to visitors and locals alike. Art & Wine. A great combination.

Patricia Anne = Patianna!

Stevenwood has featured the acclaimed Patiana Sauvignon Blanc for years on it's award winning wine list.

The name Patianna comes from Fetzer’s name Patricia Ann, “with a bit of Italian accent on my German heritage,” laughs Fetzer, who is slim with a bouffant halo of big curls and warm outgoingness. Her husband Gregg Hileman, a chef who cooked at Fetzer’s Valley Oaks with John Ash, is Patianna’s general manager. His dad was in the wine packaging business and sold products to Fetzer’s dad in the early days. He grew up in the wine industry and worked for years in wholesale wine sales. He and Fetzer like to travel, which means going on sales trips and hosting tastings for Patianna’s wines

TASTING NOTES: An ultimate summer wine, Patianna Estate Vineyards Mendocino 2007 Sauvignon Blanc is crisp, refreshing and has a sublime affinity with our scallops and prawns dish.
