Grapes hanging on the vine Most years, our Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are the last varietal to be harvested

Get off the beaten path.

Warm, welcoming and full of characters, we guarantee this is California wine country like you’ve never experienced before. The Lake County AVA is a hidden gem, and well worth the short drive north of the Napa Valley. After you visit us, we hope you’ll stick around for a while—there’s something for everyone to enjoy up here!

People enjoying wine and charcuterie Our food-friendly wines complement any snack

Sip.

With over 30 wineries and more than 9,000 acres of vineyards, Lake County makes a wonderful destination for a day or weekend of wine tasting. We’re happy to recommend you to some of our friends and neighbors in the area, or you can visit the Lake County Winery Association for more information.

Play.

Named for all of its beautiful lakes, scenic Lake County is the perfect place to get away from it all. For fans of the great outdoors, it offers world-class fishing (especially bass!), hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, boating, and hot springs.

For culture vultures, there are incredible galleries, historic sites and artisan shops offering one-of-a-kind creations. And for those who don’t shy away from a little competition, Bocce ball is a great game to play with a wine glass in your other hand.

Stay.

Make a weekend out of your visit! There are a multitude of options for staying overnight in the area—from down-to-earth campsites to luxe hotels, resorts and cozy Airbnb rentals. We recommend checking out the Lake County Visitors Bureau for suggestions.

Shannon Family of Wines is proud to steward the Giannecchini Vineyard.

The Giannecchini Family farmed this vineyard in the Talmage Bench region of Mendocino County for four generations. Many of the vines here are over 100 years old. The gravelly, loam soil and perfect light at this location produce exceptional wine grapes.
