Graton Ridge Cellars
In 2015 we acquired the Graton Ridge Cellars winery and with it a new vineyard and a new location at 3541 Gravenstein Hwy N at the corner of Vine Hill Road, just a few miles outside of Sebastopol, CA. Along with the new winery, tasting room and vineyard we acquired some new wines as well. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
