I was invited to the open house of Medlock Ames in Healdsurg, CA earlier this year not knowing what to expect. It’s a roadside bar, a vineyard, a winery, a tasting room, a great place to enjoy the outdoors with friends and all around beautiful place. I enjoyed the wine and gardens. They have bocce and an outdoor oven where they were making scrumptious foods. The tasting room/bar looks really rustic and you can tell they chose to go that route. It felt a little like I was stuck in a sepia toned photo. They also have a summer concert series. But outside, oh the outdoors of this venue, are simply spectacular. It’s the cover of Sunset magazine out there. Just go.
UPDATE: Just hours after I hit publish on this blog, I saw Beth Costa of the Wine Road post an article from Entrepreneur Magazine about Medlock’s sustainability practices. Kismet!
