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.

  • 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).
  • Excellent wine, great hospitality. Joined the wine club on the spot.
  • The tasting is free so you inevitably get pressured to buy stuff.
  • Their Gewürztraminer grape juice is perfect for those who don't drink alcohol.
  • We stopped here on our way from Mendocino to San Francisco for a quick tasting and when we arrived they let us hop onto a tour that was about to start. The guide was very passionate about the wine and you could feel how the workers felt like family to each other. Our tour was very informative and the guide was witty and humorous. Make sure you wear comfy shoes if you are going on a tour. The location was beautiful and the tastings were delicious. We walked away with one bottle of wine we are saving for a special occasion. Great atmosphere, I would recommend this vineyard to anyone!
