Harvest Moon Estate

“Because I’m Still In Love With You, On This Harvest Moon…”
These lyrics from Neil Young’s song, Harvest Moon, sum up the family-friendly, two-generations-long love affair with winegrowing and winemaking that is Harvest Moon Estate & Winery. Owner and winemaker Randy Pitts was raised on the property that houses the winery and you will often find his family there.
This small, family-owned-and-run winery is known for producing world-class Russian River Zinfandel and their other wines are fantastic as well. This is one of the only small wineries currently producing sparkling wines on site and visitors are often greeted with a glass of delicious bubbly.
The cozy, unpretentious-but-lovely tasting room sits across from the winery, so visitors can see the inner workings of winemaking any time of year. Randy is usually on hand to chat with visitors and share his knowledge of winegrowing and winemaking. The only way to purchase Harvest Moon wines is at the winery and on their website, so take my advice – go visit, taste, relax and bring home a few delicious bottles. You’ll come in as a visitor and leave as a friend.
This is a family-friendly winery. Otter Pops and sidewalk chalk are always on hand for young visitors and winery cats wander around, looking for ear rubs.
ANOTHER FUN FACT
The property is farmed sustainably and Randy uses deficit irrigation – watering just enough so the vines don’t shut down.
The patio – an intimate, lovely courtyard, complete with a pizza oven – is available for private parties by reservation.
Sparkling wines, Gewürztraminer, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Malbec, Barbera and dessert wines.
