Pope Valley Winery
Saturday, Apr 16
The Pope Valley Winery was founded in 1897 by Ed Haus, brother to Henry Haus, owner of the blacksmith shop. The original farmhouse still graces the property, as well as a blacksmith’s workshop, complete with the tools of the trade. The unique three-story gravity flow winery itself is housed in a historic building that was built with redwood timber salvaged from the Oat Hill Mine. The hand dug wine cave took over nine years to complete.
The Eakle family now runs the winery and lovingly produces 5,000 cases a year of some of the finest wines in the Napa Valley. All of their wines are from estate-grown fruit, with some from vines that are nearly 70-years-old. Pope Valley Winery is noted for its Old Vine and Late Harvest Chenin Blancs from Meyercamp Ranch, and the Eakle Ranch Merlot.
This is part of an all-day event that runs from 11am to 4pm. There are no scheduled tour times. A local artist will play acoustic guitar and the winery will offer wagon rides through the vineyard and around the property from 11a to 2p.
Picnic lunches are available for an additional price, or you may bring your own lunch. Guests can picnic at any of the participating Pope Valley sites.
