About Hopland Passport

With 15 participating wineries pouring their best wines, incredible food pairings, and two full days of tours, educational seminars, art, and live music, Hopland is the place to be for wine lovers.


Destination Hopland’s Fall Passport 2015 has expanded to 15 wineries this year and will offer a new twist: educational seminars for those wishing to deepen their knowledge of wine. The region is host to more than 100 years of traditional winemaking, with grapes considered among the best in the world. Multiple generations of vintners have created a unique range of regional wines and original blends that have stood the test of time, representing a hidden jewel in beautiful Mendocino County. “Roots of Wine” promises to take visitors on a journey of taste and time – from learning about viticulture techniques to actual blending workshops; organic farming demos to olive oil making; brandy distilling demos to pairings with fine foods, this Passport offers a feast of opportunities you won’t want to miss!

Winemaker Chris Nelson of Nelson Family Vineyards says, “Passport allows us winemakers to share our passion and joy for wine with the general public. We’ve crafted an experience that allows our visitors to immerse themselves in a sensory exploration that is all about the Sanel Valley and its rural homesteading roots.”
