The Mendocino Coast is Haute Hippie Heaven
Join me on a journey to the California coast, and discover five great reasons to visit.
And, of course, no trip to Mendocino would be complete without visiting some of their world-famous vineyards, wineries, and wine cellars. Whether you’re on a romantic getaway for two, or a no-boys-allowed weekend with friends, Mendocino’s 90 wineries makes a day of sweet libation-hopping possible along Route 128. You can experience a winery run completely on wind, and indulge in Alsatian-style Gewürztraminers, all without breaking the bank. The wine here is so divine that many vineyards from Napa and Sonoma buy their grapes from Mendocino because they are “second to none.”
Don’t want to venture far from The Inn at Newport Ranch? No problem – there’s a cliffside winery and tasting room, called Pacific Star Winery, literally two minutes up the road. Have a seat sipping a biodynamic petit syrah and watch the waves crash against the bluffs.
So there you have it ladies, five fun, romantic and rejuvenating reasons to visit Mendocino county. If you’re in the mood to be lost in beautiful forests, dazzling waterways, breathtaking accommodations, adventure activities, novelty experiences, and liquid delights, then putting this modern day Garden of Eden on your must-see list is an absolute essential.
