Sustainable farming is the big story at this family-run winery. Michael Honig, the grandson of founder Louis Honig, helped write the code of sustainable practices for the California Wine Institute and was a key player in developing the first certification programs for state wineries. The tour here, offered seasonally, focuses on the Honig family's environmentally friendly farming and production methods, which include the use of solar panels to generate a majority of the winery's power. The family produces only Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc. You can taste whites and reds at a standard tasting for $20; the reserve tasting ($50) pairs single-vineyard Cabernets with small bites.
