Nine miles from the ocean, in a saddle between two ridge tops sits Porter-Bass Vineyard & Winery. The Russian River gently forms an oxbow around these ridges allowing the fog to drift to the foot of the vineyard, cooling the vines in the summer. The forest of Redwood and Fir that surrounds the vineyard protects the vines from strong winds and contamination from other vineyards. Being on the western edge of the Russian River Valley provides an ideal climate for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Zinfandel. This cool climate makes fruit that is naturally high in acid, at the same time the sugars stay low enough to make a balanced wine that ages gracefully.
Join us for a wine tasting under our walnut tree surrounded by vineyard. We can accommodate groups of up to eight people, please put the number of people in your group after your first name when signing up for a tasting online. Friendly dogs on leashes and all children are welcome. Please call us for day of tastings, larger groups or any other questions. 707-869-1475

Excellent visit; great wines
Porter-Bass is a must do if you want to enjoy wonderful wines and a nice visit with an authentic local wine maker. Understated and lovely!
This place is great for someone who's down to earth and just wants to learn about the wine or just relax. It's not fancy but super nice staff. They allow you to try the wine and if you come in August...
