Freestone is just 10 minutes inland from Bodega Bay, right past the town of Bodega, and on the Bohemian Highway on the turnoff to Occidental.
The Freestone winery is situated in the midst of the vineyards. This three story building allows the force of gravity to transport the wine from the fermenters down to the barrels. The subterranean level is actually an ideal cellar environment where temperature and humidity are controlled naturally.
The Freestone Vineyards guest center is open Friday through Sunday from 11-5pm, and no reservations are required.
They also feature “Second Sunday” events that range from food pairings to music, so be sure and check their calendar.
Freestone is well known for their Pinot Noir and their Chardonnay. Make sure and include them in your travels, it’s a fun stop and an excellent wine. (And it’s about a block away from the Wildflour Bakery….my personal favorite!)
