Overview

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.

Such a gem on the northern coast. If you like wine then make a point of stopping here. It's My Fault and Dad's Daily Red are good go to wines but they offer many more exquisite wines.

A unique oceanfront setting for a winery and tasting room. The wines are real good. We had a nice picnic with a bottle. The views and ocean smell are fabulous. A must visit spot for wine lovers.
