Crab season is finally here! In addition to cool air, Anderson Valley’s close proximity to the Mendocino coast also brings fresh seafood, and in winter, that means crab!



The eighties marked the time when fine wine began to be appreciated throughout the U.S.and California growing areas were beginning to get the respect usually reserved for old world wine growing areas. While still young in our wine production phases and counting only six wineries, Anderson Valley joined many other “budding” wine areas in becoming an officially recognized Agricultural Viticulture Area (AVA). A lot has happened since then.

Tickets are now on sale for Anderson Valley’s 16th Annual Winter White Wine Festival taking place February 18th-19th. Celebrating the rich history of Alsatian wines in Anderson Valley, the White Wine Festival honors that history and highlights the many varieties still grown in the valley.

The weekend kicks off Friday, February 17th, with an industry pruning contest at Roederer Estate.
