Please review these important details here. The below FAQs still apply but please be aware that our operations and experiences may have been temporarily suspended or amended. You can always email your question or give us a call at 707-895-2410. We appreciate your interest and support from afar as well as your patience in adapting to our changes in business during these times.

Can our dog visit the tasting room with us?

Dogs on a leash are welcome to join you on the patio where we have an outdoor tasting bar. Dogs are not allowed to accompany you on farm tours; our goats and sheep are protected by a guardian dog and a llama who become aggressive towards unknown animals. Your dog must remain on the patio with owner supervision or remain in your car for the duration of the tour.

Anything for kids on the farm?

All ages are welcome to join us on Farm Tours. We also pour grape juice in lieu of wine during tastings.

How long are Farm Tours? Are they handicap accessible?

Farm tours are typically a 45-minute walk followed by an estate wine and cheese tasting. Yes, the tours are handicap accessible, traversing paved walkways and then a well-maintained dirt road.

I heard you have delicious food, what's up with that?

Our on-site kitchen provides farmstead cheese plates and a beloved SmorgasBoard to pair with our estate wines as well as a limited lunch menu with farm favorites from 11am–3pm. We also have a deli case stocked with beverages and grab-and-go snacks. Not to miss are our Farm Events where we showcase the bounty from our estate.

Please enjoy outside food and drink before visiting us.

What's the deal with your Farmstead Wine & Food Pairing?

Our estate chef crafts an evolving Farmstead Wine & Food Pairing designed with the seasonality of our farm. It boasts a comprehensive tasting menu featuring our estate wines, cheeses, meats and produce. This seated tasting is offered on select weekends, Saturday and Sunday, by reservation. Provided with advance notice, our chef is happy to create a food pairing with only our cheeses and produce. Please call to request this menu option.

We offer member pricing for our Vine to Table Members. If you're already a member, please call or email to reserve!

I have a food allergy or dietary restriction, can you accommodate me?

We do our best to accommodate our guests with food allergies and dietary restrictions with advance notice. For our hosted Farm Events, we have included a dietary restriction/food allergy field for you to select when purchasing your tickets. For our Farmstead Wine & Food Pairing, we must have 72 hours notice before your reservation, so it is important to write in your food allergy in the designated field when booking online or call us. If you are coming in just for a tasting or lunch, please alert your host.

Please be aware: Our kitchen utilizes corn, soy, nuts, gluten, dairy, shellfish, and fish. We are unable to provide vegan substitutions as we are a farmstead creamery.

How far is Pennyroyal Farm from the Bay Area?

It's only a couple hours drive north. It's a windy yet scenic drive, so plan an extra 20-45min for a break or two.

When can I meet the goats?

During our Farm Tours! Book a spot, available seven days a week.

Do you host private events at Pennyroyal Farm?

Potentially, yes. Send an email to events@pennyroyalfarm.com with some information about your prospective event and we'll follow up with our venue details as well as estate wine and food offerings.

Are you organic?

We are not certified organic. We strive to be a regenerative farm: our farming methods are sustainable and utilize minimal fossil fuel; our vineyard is fertilized by a compost program, fueled by waste from the barn; two onsite holding ponds provide all irrigation water for the garden and vineyard; diversified crops and animal husbandry are in constant rotation.

Where are Pennyroyal Farm's wine grapes grown?

Our Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc are grown right here, on 23 acres in our low fossil fuel vineyard! Our Chardonnay is grown just down the road at our Navarro Ranch.

How are you related to Navarro Vineyards & Winery?

We are the same family! Pennyroyal Farm and Navarro Vineyards & Winery are sister estates book-ending Anderson Valley.  

Where/how can I buy Pennyroyal wines and cheeses outside of Anderson Valley?

We can ship our wines and cheeses all over the country! Visit our online store.
