Navarro is committed to sustainable farming practices. Navarro participates in the Fish Friendly Farming program and the California Sustainable Winegrowing Program.

Some of Navarro’s sustainable farming practices include the use of cover crops between vine rows to reduce sedimentation and encourage beneficial insects, annual monitoring of erosion-control measures and protection of the riparian corridor. In 2006, Navarro introduced sheep and a portable chicken house into the vineyards as a fossil-fuel-free method of mowing, suckering, and limiting pests. Navarro farms without the use of chemical pesticides and herbicides. Navarro’s winery, vineyard and tasting room employees are hired full-time with health, dental and profit sharing benefits.

Navarro now produces 40,000 cases of wine annually, 60% of which is produced from estate-grown grapes. Many Navarro customers have become valued friends who come back to visit each year. Direct marketing provides the opportunity of staying small and providing quality wines at moderate prices. Eighty percent of production is sold in the tasting room or to mailing list customers. Most of the balance is sold directly to restaurants. Five percent of Navarro’s production is allocated each year to the out-of-state and foreign markets.

  • We stopped in to taste some wines with some friends. The tasting room is small and we must have gotten our server on a bad day because he did not really offer any information about the wines, so we ju...  read more »
  • We decided to stop here on the way to see the redwoods and found a hidden gem. The wine is incredible and cheap. We loaded up on wine and then bought some bread and cheese and had a picnic on the grou...  read more »

  • One of the classic Anderson Valley wine tasting experiences for a reason. Navarro makes a huge range of wines, and they make them all well. There is no tasting fee, and it's an energetic and fun atmosphere. Picnic tables outside make for a great location for a snack. Be sure to try the Alsace varietals here (especially the gewürztraminer).
  • 20 years of buying Navarro wines. They have gone from strength to strength. Their Gewürztraminer and dry Muscat Blanc are the best in the US and better than almost all from Alsace. Their Pinot Gris and Riesling are best in California. They sell 3 different Pinot Noirs, each exceptional in their category. A wonderful unoaked Chardonnay. A Sauvignon blanc that now is first rate. And many other characterful wines. And their late harvest wine: Unbelievable. Those who do not like their wines so much must prefer over-ripe oak bombs.
  • Their Gewürztraminer grape juice is perfect for those who don't drink alcohol.
  • Quality wines, beautiful spot and friendly staff if you have time to stop on your way to Mendocino, or if you're looking for something different than Sonoma/Napa.
  • We have enjoyed Navarro wines for years. Their Deep End Blend Pinot Noir is always good as is their estate bottled Gewürztraminer.
