Navarro Winery

 


   A visit to the Anderson Valley is always a refreshing experience, particularly if you are tired of overcrowded and expensive wine country destinations such as parts of the Napa and Sonoma Valleys. The style of winemaking, particularly in the Anderson Valley, is best defined by a profound respect for nature and the will to make wine stripped of any modern winemaking artifices, such as the use of too much new oak or over-ripe grapes.
     Navarro is one of the pioneers of the Anderson Valley, and represents the epitome of Mendocino winemaking. I firmly believe that this vineyard has been making, for quite some time, a collection of wines that constitutes some of the best values in California.
     If you want to try Navarro wines, the best way is to visit the winery or contact them and ask if they can ship to your location: their wines are usually found only in restaurants and are not available in retail stores.



  Wines Offered: Navarro offers a long list of different varietals: the Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling, and Rhone blend are the most interesting.

  Marc's selection:
  •    Pinot Noir, methode a l'ancienne: One of my favorite Pinot Noirs found in Mendocino. This wine has a real depth of fruit on the nose, with a soft, silky palate. Definitely a food-friendly wine.
