The long awaited Fort Ross Vineyard tasting room is OPEN! Located just 15 minutes from Timber Cove Inn, it is the ONLY Tasting Room with an ocean view and a vineyard (the closest vineyard to the Pacific Ocean in California). As with Timber Cove Inn, half the fun is the journey with a beautiful drive up Meyers Grade Road, through a beautiful set of wrought iron gates, Pinot Noir grapevines, a brief drive-by a redwood forest fringed by a meadow and pond. Once you arrive you will have experienced a quick tour of the "terrior" of the Sonoma Coast. All before you get out of the car! Though still in the planting process, beautiful proteas will adorn the garden as you arrive for a tasting and gorgeous view of the ocean, forest and meadows below. Timber Cove Inn guests will be treated with a VIP tasting of wines not included in the regular tasting. And it gets better! Guests may also bring in bottles of wine purchased at Fort Ross Vineyard for dinner at Alexander’s sans corkage fee.
Owner and proprietors Linda and Lester Schwartz created the Vineyard and Tasting Room with respect to the environment not only architecturally but also to the land as the building was built according to the latest US green building Council specifications and meets all ADA standards.
Food and Wine events will be offered by Executive Chef Lorin Dewees and it looks like private events are possible but only as a Fort Ross Vineyards member. So join up!
Winter hours for the Tasting room: Thursday-Monday, 9:00 AM-5:00 PM
