Annapolis Winery

Coastal Highway 1

A small, remote, yet utterly charming winery. This super-friendly, mom-and-pop place produces highly regarded small-batch wines. The Gewurztraminer, pinot noir and zinfandel port get the most raves but all the varieties are worth sampling. A few picnic supplies are available or bring your own to enjoy the views over the vines and coastal mountains.
