Welcome to Navarro Vineyards. Our family has been growing grapes, making wine, and producing non-alcoholic grape juices in the Anderson Valley in coastal Mendocino since 1974. Since we are small, you probably will not find our wine in your local store, the majority of our production is sold directly out of our tasting room and through phone and web orders.
If you are like us, you have missed socializing during the last two years. We have altered how we serve our visitors over the last 24 months. Instead of crowding up to Navarro's tiny indoor counters, we now invite you to relax at outdoor seating areas on the deck and in the gardens overlooking the vineyards. Navarro's wine savvy staff will deliver tastes right to your table and answer your questions. We hope this change will provide a welcome opportunity for you to enjoy the beauty of springtime in the Anderson Valley while sampling our wares. Even if you can't make it here in person, we hope you will enjoy the new wines with family and friends in the comfort of your own gardens or homes.
Alma Sol is a family-owned and operated, micro-boutique winery, sourcing premium fruit from both Estate and other top vineyard sites in the beautiful Paso Robles appellation. From the very beginning, the mission has been to craft exceptional Bordeaux wines, both single varietals and special blends – though they will occasionally be inspired to produce limited releases of non-Bordeaux varietals as well. Alma Sol hand-picks their grapes in small lots, respect the fruit, guide its natural potential, and simply focus on hands-on, artisan winemaking.
It all began in 2002, during weekend trips to the family’s vineyard in Paso Robles and spending more time with the family business. In Paso Robles, they found the winemakers and winery owners highly accessible and approachable – so much so, that they came to know the area and the industry extremely well in little time. It started with learning about vineyard practices, the kinds of varietals that grow well in the area, and then gradually extended into learning about the entire winemaking operation.
John and Lisa became officially licensed in 2009 under the name of Alma Sol, which brings together two critical elements needed to craft exceptional wines – “soul” and “sun”. While Paso is well-known for its Zinfandel – and more recently, award-winning Rhone varietals and blends – John and Lisa decided that they wanted to make the best Cabernet Sauvignon they could by using Paso Robles fruit, to prove that a great Bordeaux could be realized in the Central Coast. Their first commercial vintage was in 2009. The inaugural releases received numerous accolades, including 90 Pts from Wine Enthusiast.
Cavaletti Vineyards is proud to be part of the small and passionate group of wineries leading a winemaking renaissance in the sunshine of Southern California. Our wines have been gaining attention since our first harvest in 2016.
We are dedicated to the farming and preservation of unique vineyard sites and maximizing their expression in our wines. Each season we work with a dozen or so varieties and vineyards stretching from Los Alamos in northern Santa Barbara County to the historic Rancho Cucamonga region in the south. Our primary focus is the forgotten winegrowing region of Ventura and Los Angeles County.
We utilize organic farming and minimal irrigation to produce wines that are loaded with personality and as unique as the vineyards in which they are grown. Our winemaking relies on native yeast fermentation, neutral oak barrels, and traditional winemaking techniques.
Our wines proudly bear the signature of each vintage and are a unique statement of time and place. They range from classically styled rosé and white wines to hedonistic reds of power and refinement.
We produce varietal, vineyard designate, and blends from Ventura, Los Angeles, and Santa Barbara Counties.
Eco Terreno wines are 100% estate grown with a thoughtful palate that is a perfect reflection of the beautiful Alexander Valley and the biodiversity of our farm.
Eco Terreno lies on the banks of the Russian River, in the premier wine region of Alexander Valley, Northern California. The fog from the nearby Pacific Ocean rolls in, blanketing the farm until mid-morning. Temperatures climb early afternoon, to later subside in the evening. These conditions are ideal for our grapes to mature slowly while we balance the health of the vine. Together the microclimate and ancient soils of our valley bring depth and texture to the canvas of our wines.
Eco Terreno, a Spanish phrase, translates to ‘ecology of the land.’ The name reflects our dedication and reverence to the land, and our desire to care for its long-term health and well-being.
Founded in 2010, Enegren Brewing Company is an independently owned craft brewery located in Moorpark, CA - Ventura County. The company - founded with a passion for good beer by Chris & Matt Enegren and Joe Nascenzi - focuses on German-inspired beers, with a heavy emphasis on lager-style beers.
We produce 6 beers year round: The Lightest One, Lagertha, Schoner Tag, Valkyrie, Enegren IPA, and Nighthawk. We also have several rotating seasonal brews - as well as numerous special release and one-off brews that push the boundaries of lager craft beer. Visit our beer page for more information on our beers.
A brewery specializing in Irish and English beers.
We have 12 taps filled with Ales and Lagers brewed onsite in our 3 barrel system. The small size allows for a bit of experimentation.
Our owner and head brewer brewed his first beer in 1999. After that first steam beer, he knew that he had to keep brewing his own beer. After two decades, the dream of owning his own brewers is almost complete. We will be concentrating on English and Irish beers, but there will be a few continental beers as well as some American styles.
Meet Your Winemakers
We came to be winery owners and winemakers by going a little overboard in our quest for enjoyable wine tasting experiences. We were pretty serious wine “geeks” for at least 10 years before we switched from the “tasting” side of the bar to the winemaker side. We knew what we loved about wine, as well as a few things we didn’t like, and we work hard to keep the fun side foremost. Much has changed since our first vintage, and we’ve learned a lot, but we have never lost sight of our goal….”make the best wine we can, and make visiting the winery and tasting the wine as enjoyable as possible.”
Lucas Sellers Wine started because, obviously, we love wine! But, we had longed to learn more about this wonderful beverage. As we would go wine tasting, we would pick the brains of winemakers and asked a ton of questions. Our curiosity grew and grew the more we found out how complex wine can be! Luigi looked at Kimberley one day and said why can't we do this... make wine and then talk about how we made it with new friends every day in our own tasting room? We set out to make this dream happen and here we are, getting closer to the day we open our tasting room. We currently have two vintages in barrels, our first vintage, 2016, was just bottled! Lucas Sellers comes from our last name being Lucas and Kimberley's grandmother's last name was Sellers. She played an intricate role in her life and her children's lives, and not to mention, her love for Cabernet Sauvignon. We have two boys, three girls, two dogs and a cat. We want our wine brand to represent our family. It is why we are doing this and hope one day our children will take over and it will always represent the love we put into our family and the making of our wine.
We produce wines based upon our four favorite grape growing regions: Italy, France, Spain and California. The word “Brix” is a term for measurement of sugar in grapes; therefore Four Brix equals four sweet spots for great wine! With a total production of around 2,000 cases, these wines are very limited and in high demand.
It takes strength, creativity and patience to make great wine, kind of like raising children. In fact, our wine is like our children, so we gave them names: Smitten, Zeductive (Zinfandel and Petite Sirah), Temptress, Rhondezvous (Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah) and Scosso (Sangiovese, Cabernet and Merlot) are a few of our kids. Once you taste the wines, you realize how apropos the names are.
When we aren’t making wine, we like to hang out with a glass of wine, listening to music and eating great food. Our favorite place to hang out is at the BrixHouse- our tasting room. But we don’t like to hang out alone, so we make sure there is always something going on at the BrixHouse. For Club members, affectionately referred to as “BrixHeads”, there are exciting Pick Up Parties at least twice annually. Depending on the time of year, you might be able to attend a Concert in the Cellar, Foodie Friday, Dinner in the Tasting Lounge, BBQ Pizza Nights, a Blending Party or maybe just relax in the BrixHouse with a glass of wine, listening to a smooth sax player. Be sure to get on the email list for up-to-date announcements and events.
The name of the brewery traces back to roots of the owner and builder, Marshall Haraden. His great-great-great uncle was Jonathan Haraden, commander of the 1776 tyrant killing ship, Tyrannicide. The Tyrannicide had a 14 cannon brigantine on board and was fought tyrants during the American Revolutionary War. From this patriotic lineage, the name of the brewery and flagship beer were born.
But the name is not the only part of the brewery with a story to tell. From the beautiful copper top bar to the tables, chairs, and hand-crafted wood hanging on the walls, 14 Cannons is constructed with recycled aged elements. The brewery and showroom have a past of their own and carry through on the founding theme of history.
A Bandit never knows when a good idea will come to him, it might be while trying to outrun a group of Pinkertons or maybe around a camp fire on the banks of the Dirty Devil River, while hiding out in Robber's Roost. It may just be while drinking a beer, barbecuing in a back yard in Malibu.
Ron Parker, head Bandit and founder of Bandits' Grill and Bar, isn't quite sure when the idea to open Bandits' came to him, but everyone agrees it was a good one. A veteran of the restaurant business since he was 13 and a devoted barbecue aficionado, Ron knew he wanted to create the best barbecue experience possible. In 1990 he opened the first Bandits' in Thousand Oaks and the "Legend" began to grow. Soon proclaimed "Best Barbecue In Los Angeles" the original small restaurant in Thousand Oaks was overflowing and Bandits' Camarillo was opened another location was added in Cottonwood Heights Utah.
