  • I love this place. Best place for a picnic with a bottle of wine you just bought. The self tour of the mill is nice as well. It cannget hot in summer>
  • Wonderful, wonderful. Step back in time. Smell the old smells, and explore this fine old working grist Mill. Beautiful historic and fun place to see.
  • This was a fantastic little day trip located above Napa it is one of the oldest Mills in California if you have enough people with you they will actually fire up the Mill and give you samples we bought some polenta on the way out which I prepared at home and it was absolutely fantastic
  • This is an under-publicized gem with a still-working mill, great staff, and some hiking trails out back. This is one of the few restored mills in the western half of the country and you can even take home a souvenir of a ground grain product of your choice. We visited on a rainy Sunday in January so there were few visitors and we received a private tour and had a great chat with a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic docent. If you're into pre-statehood Californian history, definitely visit.
  • Really interesting place with great interpretation and demonstrations.
