Hearthstone Vineyard & Winery

The rolling hills of this 40-acre vineyard are home to 20 different varieties of grape, each possessing a unique flavor and subtle nuances that make them perfect for blending. The orderly rows are overseen by owner Hoy Buell, who also owns the nearby Greenheart Farms, which enjoys a reputation as one of the largest rose producers in the world. Buell brings more than 30 years of horticulture experience to his vineyard, using his technical knowledge of plant care, grafting, and cloning to help create the wine blends for which his vineyard is famous. After they’ve been harvested by hand, winemaker Paul Ayers works with the grapes in small batches to ensure quality. Ayers carefully monitors each step in the wine making process, from hand-sorting the grapes, to punching down the fermenting seeds and juice, to constantly acting out scenes from the wines' favorite TV shows as they stay locked in oak barrels to age for up to two-and-a-half years.

Guests can roam the vineyards with a guide or enjoy the view from the tasting room overlooking them. There, accompanied by artisan cheeses, guests can sip established varietals like Rhones or Zinfandels, or try the winery's signature blends such as the 2007 Profundo––a gold medal winner at the 2011 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, and ripe with black-cherry cola, oak, and mint notes.

The outdoor seating area is absolutely spectacular, they have a glass wall that serves as a wind break without obstructing the beautiful views
