Take in the vineyard views in a restored 1920’s craftsman style house on the Foxen Canyon Wine Trail. Our garden, with a bocce ball court and horseshoe pit, is ideal for a wine country picnic.
Sip through a tasting of four vintages of our single clone Mesa Pinot Noir, made with grapes from the oldest block in our vineyard. There’s a special section in Riverbench vineyard that’s been affectionately termed “The Mesa” for many years now. This four acre block is one of the oldest at Riverbench, and is planted with Martini clone on its own rootstock. Year after year, the fruit from these vines makes remarkably different Pinot Noir; there is a liveliness that refreshes the palate and stirs the senses. We're heading into our library and pulling 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 vintages for you to taste anytime on Saturday or Sunday, June 15th -16th. A limited quantity of these wines will be available for purchase.
Leash up your pup and head out to the vineyard for wine tasting and wood-fired pizzas on our picturesque patio. Dr. Brenda Forsythe of Orcutt Veterinary Hospital invites you to do something nice in honor of man's best friend. 25% of wine profits and 100% of food proceeds will be donated to The Big Fix Uganda. The BIG FIX Uganda operates the only veterinary hospital in Northern Uganda, home to more than 2 million people and tens of thousands of companion animals. They provide free services every day to animals whose guardians love them but have no money to pay for veterinary care. Lunch ticket includes two slices of handmade pizza. Tasting fees or wine purchases are separate. Please bring a leash for your pup!
