Item Description

Point Reyes National Seashore Association is proud to partner again with Stubbs Vineyard for a private vineyard tour and wine tasting for you and your seven guests.

Planted in the hills of West Marin, only 30 minutes northeast of Point Reyes National Seashore, the Stubbs Vineyard is Marin County's first organically certified vineyard, situated in a lovely valley just a few miles from Petaluma.

Tom Stubbs, a 4th-generation farmer from England, and his wife Mary purchased their ranch overlooking Hicks Valley in 1982 and immediately fell in love with the land. Just four years later they sought to permanently protect it from non-agricultural development by selling a conservation easement to the Marin Agricultural Land Trust so that it would be protected for generations to come.

In 1996 Tom and Mary began their vineyard by planting 11 acres of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines in the sheltered valley a short walk from their house. Initially they sold their fruit to several respected wineries including Schramsberg and Hartford Court vineyards, but as they grew more knowledgeable and passionate about winemaking and excited by the exceptional quality of their grapes, they decided to become vintners as well as growers.

The ranch is completely "off the grid" and the home and outbuildings are all powered by solar and wind energy. You and your guests will tour the vineyard with Mary Stubbs to learn more about the family, farm, and future of the vineyard, while tasting their current organic vintages, olive oil and a variety of local cheeses.

Don't miss this opportunity to taste the extraordinary, bid today!
