There’s nothing like tasting a wine on the land that birthed it, illuminated by conversation with the people involved in its making from bud-break to bottling.
Everything you need to know about arranging a private tasting of our wines at Ferrington Vineyard is shared below, along with places and proprietors that pour and sell our wines, and a few Anderson Valley highlights we recommend as well.
Tastings offered between May 1 and October 31
Our tastings take place on a hilltop aerie overlooking a verdant valley filled with vineyards, orchards, and grazing sheep. The wine is the star here, but the view runs a close second.
Complete this form and we will arrange a time for you to come experience the wine where it was born. We host only 1 tasting per day, usually at noon before the afternoon winds come up. Small bites are provided to pair with the wines at the tasting.

Tips to plan your trip
Tastings are strictly by appointment only and due to limited availability, tend to book well in advance. We suggest bringing sunscreen, hats, and light windbreakers.
Our tastings generally last between 1 and 1.5 hours.
When we confirm your tasting, we will forward a map that will guide you from the point GPS drops you off, through the vineyard, to where we will meet. We will also provide a cell number to reach us should you run late or become lost. Please be sure to bring these with you.
Due to the outdoor nature of our tasting, inclement weather may necessitate a postponement. We will notify you if we anticipate any weather issues.
