Long Meadow Ranch is a collection of five properties: three in Napa Valley, one in Anderson Valley, one in West Marin.

Home to the Mayacamas Estate, the rugged 650-acre landscape nestled in the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains also gave way to a long, sweeping meadow, thus the name Long Meadow Ranch was born.

They make high quality whites, rosés and reds. We particularly love their Napa Cabernet and are currently pouring it by the glass at CRU.

On Saturday we will be pouring 5 of their wines for $16 a person.
