101 North: Forestville, Hartford Family Winery

Hartford Family Winery 8075 Martinelli Rd., (707) 887-8010. Tasting daily 10-4:30. Situated way back from the road, the tasting room here is reached via a scenic drive in over a one-lane bridge and past bucolic vineyards. The claim is they have “a pinot for everybody,” so you might taste an earthy 2007 Far Coast Vineyard Pinot Noir, or if you’re very lucky, a 2008 Arrendell Vineyard Pinot Noir that is served in the White House and quite the treat. Picnic facilities are available, and the $15 tasting fee is waived with a wine purchase.
