A winery wedding in Mendocino County - unique, memorable, romantic.  Mendocino, the most northern of California's coastal winegrowing regions, has long been known and loved for its dramatic coastline, towering redwood forests and elegant rural charm. Adding to its reputation as an ideal destination for romantic getaways, Mendocino has gained recognition as a spectacularly diverse wine region, with vineyards quilting hidden, warm valleys and oak-dotted hillsides.
