Topel Winery

In 1980’s, the Topel family discovered a 160-acre old sheep farm, deep in the hills west of Hopland. Continuing the of early heritage of Mendocino pioneers and recognizing the perfect growing conditions for Bordeaux varietals, this hillside vineyard was planted in rugged high-altitude terrain in ’89. Out of respect for the land, only 15 acres planted, the rest of the pristine land is left to nature – oaks, manzanitas, coyotes and hawks.

Today, Martin Bernal-Hafner, Topel’s winemaker, carriers this legacy and is inspired by old-world tradition, guided by science, and follows the rhythms of nature. His worldly experience – from M. Chapoutier to Paul Hobbs – is reflected in the elegant and age-worthy wines coming out of the Topel cellar. With so many wines to explore we were compelled to include this set of wines from, just as famously known and beloved, Mendocino County.

May 31 – June 6

Chenoweth Wines

It’s often said that great wines are made in the vineyard, but for Charlie and Amy Chenoweth, that’s less a saying than an actual fact. For Charlie, the legendary grape grower, and Amy, the family winemaker, the fruit is everything. Proudly staked is a 20+ year history of farming some of the most coveted grapes in Sonoma County, on the land that has been in their family since the mid-1800’s. Now as part of the Region family, we love the chance to introduce Amy’s wine – she surely has something special in that Rose and Green Valley Pinot Noir!

June 7 – 13

Calluna Vineyards

For the love of old world, classically styled wines. Calluna wines come from the 17-acre estate in the Chalk Hill appellation, right in the middle of Sonoma County on a gorgeous hilltop. Planted in 2005, after a strong determination to make a dream reality, David takes great pride in living among the vines with his family and making the wines himself.

A conversation led to a meeting, which led to a visit to the gorgeous hilltop estate in Windsor. Winding up the road, seeing the scares on the land from previous fire years, we were left speechless. David’s welcoming nature and tour of the estate were impactful – just as sharing the wine and stories together, it was a great match. We are honored to have these wines and stories to now share with you.

June 14 – 20

DRNK

DRNK represents the collective joy of working and being together. Founded in 2012, Ryan has a rich winemaking legacy, with five generations of vineyard stewardship in Sonoma County dating back to the 1880’s. Located in an idyllic setting atop the Laguna Ridge in the heart of Russian River Valley with a 300 foot wine cave – only 1 of 4 in the area. Ryan is guided by a philosophy that blends an understanding of the land and tradition with evolving science and data that allows for precision winemaking.

June 21 – 27

Bucher Wines

After graduating from UC Davis in 1984, John Bucher returned to Healdsburg to manage the family dairy operation, Bucher Farms, eventually transitioning the herd to an organic dairy farm. John continued on his parent’s path of growing the dairy herd, while also looking for opportunities to diversify to higher-value crops to stay economically sustainable. In 1997 John planted the first Bucher Vineyard Pinot Noir blocks for Bucher Farms. Additional plantings of Pinot Noir and eventually Chardonnay followed and today, Bucher Vineyard Pinot Noir grapes are sold to several notable Sonoma County wineries, including Williams Selyem, Siduri Wines, Papapietro Perry, Kosta Brown, C.

Hafner Vineyard

In 1967 Dick and Mary Hafner purchased 250 acres in Alexander Valley. 100 of those acres are vineyards; the rest are oak woodlands that are left for the flora and fauna.​ In September 1982 they were ready for their first crush with Parke at the helm. Now three generations of Harfners work together producing Chardonnay, Cabernet, a Malbec blend and Rose. Perfectly quoted by Parke, “if it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right.”

A true partnership forms from a connection but also the deeper set of values. Living a simple and balanced life of family, friends, nature and adventure couldn’t be anymore apparent in these wines and with this team.

July 12 – 18

Halleck Vineyard

“Building Community Through Wine.” The logo represents an H for Halleck. More importantly, it expresses “one-to-one”, depicted as Roman numerals. Fostering a personal connection with everyone who enjoys their wine. Viewing the dot as a grape, it has served as a plant of power for over 8,000 years, as wine is viewed as sacred in almost all the major religions…and for good reason. It has the unique ability to connect us, elevating a conversation and building community. Which the circle represents our community.

July 26 – August 1

Front Porch Farm

In 2010 Peter and Mimi began to build a farm guided by the principle that diversity is nature’s basic pattern. They view farming as a symphony of life-affirming patterns; learning how to take care of the biotic community resident in their soils; orchestrating the succession of crops, each benefitting from its predecessor and using diversity as their guiding principle.

Meticulously farmed and certified organic, they aren’t just growing plants, they are supporting a whole ecosystem which takes time, experience and dedication – a true inspiration. Every bottle we’ve ever had from Front Porch Farm has carried through the astounding qualities it takes to make it – appreciating every glass and the team creating it.

August 2 – 8

Young Hagen Wines

From Minnesota to Southern California to Napa and Sonoma, with prestigious professional golf tours in between, Tim and Ali Beranek brought Young Hagen to life in 2013. Combined with a passion for wine and experience from Kosta Browne and Outpost Wines Tim brings his own unique style and approach to these wines, just as he did on the golf course.​ 

With the hand-dipped waxed tops (with help of their kids) to starkly beautiful labels and defined character Tim brings us stand out wines you will cherish.

August 9 – 16

Scherrer Winery

A simple philosophy – make a good tasting wine that will age well. Since their first vintage in 1991, Fred & Judi Scherrer have been creating handcrafted, full-flavored wines that express the personality of the unique Sonoma County vineyards where they are grown.

From their hands on, honest winemaking approach to the vast knowledge and shared love for this craft, Scherrer Winery brings the consistent balance of simplicity and approachability to Region throughout their unique varietals.

Zo Wines

Located just outside of Healdsburg in Dry Creek Valley David and his team have a 10-acre boutique farmstay winery focused on four very important principles – stay, taste, learn and explore. The reputation, history and development of Zo Wines is interwoven with the quality and individual character of family-owned vineyards. At the very heart of our winemaking philosophy is the requirement of the ‘the right fruit, from the right places, grown with the right people’!
