Perched right on the edge of the wild blue Pacific, Pacific Star has welcomed guests for 30 years. Classic as well as rare and unusual varietals and blends are our specialty, with grapes sourced from Mendocino County's heritage vineyards. We encourage guests to bring a picnic and experience amazing forces of nature and incredible views of the Pacific Ocean. Whales pass by just off the rocks and sea and bird life is vibrant. Our friendly and casual tasting room awaits your visit! Open 12 to 5 daily except Tuesday & Wednesday.

You can not beat the location and views! Such a great place to reflect and enjoy some great wine. The drive is not far from Fort Bragg, and I would do it again in a heart beat. A highlight from the trip.
