Valentine Vineyards is a small family-run winery in Southern Mendocino County, just a quarter of a mile from the Alexander Valley appellation. The vineyard was planted in 1976 by Rodney Strong with 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Between 1975 and 1985, the vineyard was operated by Sonoma Vineyards which produced wine from the vineyard under the designation “Haehl Ranch”. In 1987, the vineyard was purchased by Bob Valentine and became Valentine Vineyards. Since the purchase of Valentine Vineyards, Bob Valentine has been busy at work both selling his grapes to outside wineries and producing his own private, award generating wines comprised of 100% Valentine fruit. The gold medals collected in amateur wine competitions over the past decade are both numerous and impressive. Triple gold awards are not uncommon in Bob Valentine's repitoire of amateur wine awards. After more than 19 years of personal bottling of Valentine private, family-label Cabernet, Valentine wine is now available for sale to the public. Valentine Read more »

But, things are getting off to an early start due to unusually warm Spring weather and a mild Winter where the Sierra snowpack is only 17% of norma... Read More

  • I'm a lucky wine gal, indeed. I spent Valentine's Day sipping Oregon wine at the Ram's Head Bar inside Timberline Lodge, watching the clouds form and dissipate like a roller coaster around the 11,245 foot high peak of Oregon's Mt. Hood. Sipping wine while watching the clouds work their magic was actually just the beginning of a day—and evening—f... Read More

While there, I picked up a few french wines based on the tasting notes/ and the type of varietals I like. Since I am just beginning to learn about French wines, thought someone... Read More
