Greenwood Ridge Vineyards

Along Highway 101

The best reason to come here is to view the Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired tasting room, which was built from a single fallen redwood trunk. The Pinot Noir is also legendary. Groups can spend the night in Greenwood Ridge's three-bedroom cottage ($200) surrounded by vines and redwoods.
