Cultivating the artistic traditions passed on from ancestral ghosts, Stone Garden Vineyards diversifies the Vino Piazza micro-winery patio by being one of the largest minority-owned wineries in the country. Wine tastings entreat novice and sommelier tongues alike with reds and whites that blend the fruity flavors of Lockeford's rich soils into a decadently filled beaker. Swivel a bounty of loose drips from a bottle of cabernet sauvignon as blackberry and plum flavors dance down your tongue, holding a loose séance to call ripe tannins into your nostrils ($5.95). For white zinfandel fanatics in search of lovable sibling, the white merlot empties its pockets of berry notes and wrinkled slurpee receipts before hanging its sun-ripened jacket out to dry ($5.95).
Great things often come in simple packages. That's the philosophy behind Fields Family Wines, where wine-making is a rustic process done by hand in small batches, using grapes grown onsite or sourced from other local vineyards. This minimalist approach results in 10 wines that possess notes ranging from rich currant and plum to the crisp pucker of pear and ginger. The flavors come alive when the wines are uncorked at the sleek, contemporary bar in the downtown tasting room or poured straight from the barrel and into guests' mouths at the winery. The downtown location features live music and paintings by local artists, whereas the picturesque winery hosts in-depth tours and games of bocce ball.

Since arriving in California in 1938, the Weibel family has produced rare and celebrated varieties of wine. To accomplish this, they draw from three generations of family experience—both in their ancestral home of Switzerland and in the fertile valleys of Mendocino County. Today, Fred Weibel, Jr. continues the traditions of his grandfather and father before him by growing, brewing, and bottling delicious wines such as cabernet sauvignon, pinot noir, or the vineyard's signature sparkling whites.
