Ladera Vineyards

150 White Cottage Rd. S.
Angwin , CA , United States http://www.laderavineyards.com/
(707) 965-2445

Meaning "hillside" in Spanish, Ladera is named for the two regions in which their respected Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced: Howell Mountain and Lone Canyon. Anne and Pat Stotesbery purchased the grounds where there was an old stone winery in 2000, modernized the facility, and added 18,000 square feet of underground caves. Ladera Vineyards is known for producing small berries with ripe tannins, which produce particularly robust red wines. Call ahead to make an appointment for one of their daily estate tours of the grounds or tastings.
