Two of Anderson Valley’s top wineries are introducing brand new tasting rooms this summer.
Baxter Winery, on the region’s best producers of Pinot Noir and Syrah, has just opened a brand new tasting room in “downtown” Philo. They are open Thursday through Monday, 11am to 5pm at 8660 Highway 128, Philo CA 95466. The phone number is 707-895-3173.
Another excellent Pinot Noir producer—and one of my mandatory stops when I’m in Anderson Valley—is Phillips-Hill Winery. They have just moved their tasting room a couple of miles down the road from its previous location in downtown Philo. The new address is 5101 Highway 128, Philo CA 95466. That’s just a bit north of Greenwood Ridge and Standish wineries. The phone is 707-895-2209. They’re open daily from around 11am to 5pm.
The new Phillips-Hill tasting room is a couple miles north of downtown Philo.
Anderson Valley is off the beaten path relative to Napa Valley and Sonoma, but it’s a great place to go wine tasting. The scenery is beautiful. The pace is relaxed. There are also plenty of places to taste, including tasting rooms located at wineries and the standalone rooms in towns such as Philo. Do yourself a favor and pay Anderson Valley a visit.
