Escape to Mendocino Wine Country


Travel about an hour-and-a-half north of the Golden Gate Bridge and you’ll find the area deemed “America’s Greenest Wine Region.”

Mendocino Wine Country is home to 570 vineyards and over 20-percent of Mendocino County’s winegrapes are certified organic. The first U.S. winery to be certified carbon neutral, Parducci Wine Cellars, is also located in Mendocino.

Winemaking has been a tradition in Mendocino County since the first Italian immigrants settled there. Now, there are 108 wineries in the area.

This week on California Life, our Monique Soltani takes you to three of them. Check out the story below!
