The Northern California coast offers the most unique environment anyone could want in a vacation or quick getaway. Breathtaking, but almost otherworldly, the untamed Pacific Ocean reaches and crashes on beachfront as equally wild. In Mendocino County, in particular, Mother Nature has gifted us a terrain unparalleled with any other across the country.
A young earth consistently raising from beneath, with very active fault activity not far below the surface, this magnificent corner of earth is constantly shifting and changing. Dotted with 20 foot boulders, this coastline is a spectacular wilderness to truly behold. Inspiring, rugged and intimidating, the Mendocino County Pacific coast is to be reckoned with.
But the Pacific coastline isn’t the only thing distinctive about this fantastic plot of California. These spectacular surroundings make for an environment yielding of not only amazing serenity and power, but some of the finest growing conditions in the world. And because of this, Mendocino County offers cultivators among the greatest wine growing conditions ever experienced.
The steadily sloping dips and cols blanketed by a steady westerly breeze of the Pacific Ocean, consisting of some of the most nourishing soil this side of the Mississippi River, combine for a grape farmer’s dream. A component to the world renowned North Coast American Viticulture Area (NCAVA), our humble county turns out the best of California wines. Visitors from across the globe pay homage to the region for the opportunity to enjoy the greatest wines in the world.
So if you have a wanderlust which can only be quenched by the opportunity to explore nature at its most expressive, you need to take a trip to the northern most reaches of the Golden State. For the best of what earth has to offer all around, hike, drink and swim in Mendocino County at the first chance you can!
