Libations

Much like how our food revolves around local farmers, ranchers, and our immediate surroundings, our wine list, too, focuses on small growers and producers from around the world. Our goal is to feature vintners who perform their craft with the utmost passion and care. We want to convey a certain sense of responsibility with our food, and in turn extend that to the wines we offer. Our selection has been thoughtfully curated to feature wines that show purity, elegance, and charm. We find this is best achieved by only subtle enhancements by human hands. At their best, wines capture an honest snapshot of both the time and place they come from. We strive to offer wines that provide glimpses that in some strange way, also reflect the inspirational wild ocean and mountain landscapes that surround us.

BEVERAGE PAIRING

We strive to pair our full experience menu with terroir-driven pours, with a primary focus on international wine, and the addition of sake. Our wine selections include a collection of hand-crafted, local, sustainable, small production wines, poured alongside iconic wines of the Old World.

NON-ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE PAIRING

A selection of non-alcoholic, seasonal ingredients, and house-made elixirs. As the year progresses we capture the season in various ways; through fermentations, vinegars, and tinctures. This is the backbone of our non-alcoholic pairing. Please provide us 24- hour notice when requesting to add this to your experience.

The winery is located above the town of Elk in the Mendocino Ridge appellation and produces wine and cider that reflect the Mendocino coastal growing climate. The winery operates with a clear pursuit in mind: to craft small lot, cool-climate wines that express site distinction and traditional varietal character. The Harbor House wine list features a wide selection of wines from Drew including the Sur la Mer Cider from the apple orchard surrounding their winery.

Alder Springs Vineyard, Laytonville CA

The lesser known Alder Springs Vineyard is a 6,000-acre ranch in far northern Mendocino County, where viticulturist Stuart Bewley has been growing some of California's most outstanding wine grapes since 1993. At elevations ranging from 1,700 to 2,700 feet, Bewley practices his patented brand of extremist viticulture on a patchwork of vineyards perched along the steep sandstone slopes of the Coast Range. The mountainous ranch is a decidedly challenging spot to cultivate grapes, resulting in a superb and unique Mendocino expression.
