About the Anderson Valley
In a region renowned for distinctiveness, you will find the historic farming hub of Yorkville. With its very own appellation, Yorkville Highlands is made up of multiple ridgetops and valleys and is often enveloped in afternoon fog, this part of route 128 provides an enchanting wine tasting experience.
Boonville, just a bit further up the road, is home to Annual Legendary Boonville Beer Fest every May. Residents developed their own partial language in the late 19th century called “Boontling” and you can learn more about it at the Anderson Valley Historical Society, a half-mile northwest of Boonville in the Con Creek Schoolhouse. The Society is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 4, February through November.
Philo is famous for local farm stands and nearby Handy Woods State Park, with two breathtaking stands of old growth redwoods along the Navarro River, a popular local spot for kayaking, canoeing and swimming.
Just before you reach the coast you will pass Navarro, home to the Navarro Amphitheater, an intimate, redwood-shaded music venue.
