In addition, RHW has a superlative view and an exotic botanical garden. Garden tours are available by appointment only.

  • Quarryhill Botanical Garden
    A fire swept through the Mayacamas Mountains foothills in 1964, creating an environment ripe for the knobcone pines that quickly repopulated the land. Four years later, Jane Davenport Jansen purchased more than 40 acres of the nascent thicket, taming it with vineyards planted on the open valley floor. In 1987, she began cultivating a garden along the rocky, steep hillsides, which were pocked with the remains of abandoned rock quarries. Heavy rains and natural infiltration of waters created a group of ponds, creating a serene natural environment that Jansen soon planted with seedlings, flowers, and plants from seeds collected on more than 25 annual Asian expeditions. Until she passed away in 2000, Jansen funded the growth and cultivation of the 25-acre garden, which is now one of the largest collections of scientifically documented, wild-source Asian plants on the continent. Visitors can view the rare plants and vast selection of Asian greenery blossoming from the Glen Ellen countryside as they meander through the gardens during self-led tours.

    With 50+ years of combined experience with some of the world’s most renowned winemakers, Peter and Betsy Spann founded their winery in 2001. Their steeply terraced mountainside vineyard yields small amounts of richly flavored Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Sangiovese grapes. Just as jazz is an interpretation of classical music, Spann Vineyard blends are interpretations of classical wine styles, such as the white wines Yin-Yang (Chardonnay/Viognier blend) and the red wines OMG (Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend), The Powerlifter (Petite Sirah/Grenache/Syrah/ Cinsault blend) and Mo Jo (Sangiovese/Cabernet Sauvignon/Syrah/Merlot blend).

  • Jacuzzi Family Vineyards
    Four Things to Know About Jacuzzi Family Vineyards Big, dark reds, bright, fresh whites, sparkling, and dessert wines are all produced and served in Jacuzzi Family Vineyards’ monumental, but welcoming Italian-villa-style home base. Guests can try many of them, along with cheeses and olive oils, during tours and tastings. Before you stop by, drink in a few behind-the-scenes facts: Yes, they’re the Jacuzzis. Actually, the family was in the wine business before its descendants invented the iconic bubbling tub. Patriarch Giovanni Jacuzzi worked at a vineyard in Italy before following his sons to California, where they became plane builders. After a tragic crash killed one of his sons, Giovanni convinced his remaining kids to get into a less dangerous industry. Belatedly following in his father’s footsteps, Valeriano Jacuzzi got to work planting zinfandel, carignane, and mourvedre grapes. Their wine comes from tea. Compost tea, that is. This oozy, eco-friendly mixture of molasses, fish emulsion, rock dust, and microbes fertilizes the crops. Meanwhile, bell beans, barley, and oats serve as cover crops, adding further natural enrichment to the soil. These are just a couple components to an entire system of green farming techniques used in the vineyards. Some of the field workers are fuzzy, and some are creepy-crawly. When it’s time to weed, the farmers bring in flocks of hungry sheep to munch their way between the vines. Farmers also control pests with the help of creatures that are a little less cute: predator mites. They import these microscopic bugs to cut down on nature’s vine vandals. It’s free to taste. Visitors can stop in to try up to five complimentary wine samples during normal hours, though they can also pile on extras such as table service, chocolate-wine shots, and samples from sister business The Olive Press.

  • Cline Cellars
    The Three Faces of Cline Cellars Innovative Farming Practices In 2000, founder Fred Cline began using a natural, sustainable, and organic method of farming that enhances the soil with compost teas, crushed minerals, and ground-up oyster shells. He also introduces friendly insects to control harmful ones, and brings in hungry sheep to devour unused weeds. This practice, dubbed Green String farming, produces strong, healthy, and nutrient-packed soil that helps the winery cultivate flavorful and robust fruit for its wines. Harvest-to-Bottle Wines Each of Cline Cellars’ harvests is hand-picked at the peak of ripeness. The grapes are then gently de-stemmed and crushed before being fermented in temperature-controlled American or French oak barrels. Following precise aging periods, the winery spins together single vineyard, Sonoma county, ancient vine, and California wines, making sure each is crafted in such a way so as to emphasize its signature characteristics. Special Attractions Beyond the wine—which visitors can try during tastings—Cline Cellars entertains its guests with various special attractions. The 350-acre property features six spring-fed ponds, including a carp pond where visitors can spark feeding frenzies while tossing handfuls of fish food. The property also boasts a bird display, more than 5,000 roses, and a Missions Museum, which houses handcrafted models of all 21 Spanish missions that were built in 1939 for the World’s Fair. During visits, make sure to also say hi to Puddy and Fancy, a pair of Sicilian miniature burros.
