Acacia Vineyard

California, Carneros AVA Winery in Napa Valley

San Francisco Wine Tours

Napa Valley & Sonoma Wine Tasting Tours


Acacia Vineyard entrance to winery and tasting roomThe fact that Acacia is famed for its flagship, single-vineyard Beckstoffer Pinot Noir is fitting, since it was one of the first wineries in California to produce Pinots from vineyard-designated grapes.
Acacia wine tasting roomAcacia owns approximately 150 acres of prime Carneros land and works to maintain its ecological integrity in a variety of ways. Most importantly, it is helping to restore 13,000 adjoining acres of wetland marsh bordering San Pablo Bay, an important habitat for fish, birds and other wildlife, and plants (including some that are threatened or endangered).
Acacia Vineyard winery in CarnerosOn a visit to the small, cozy, usually uncrowded tasting room of this off-the-beaten-track winery, you’d never guess that it was owned by Diageo, the world’s largest wine company (which also owns major Napa brands Sterling, Rosenblum Cellars, Beaulieu, and others).
The personable and knowledgeable staff—who hold official titles such as Bearer of Useless Information or Goddess of the Grapes—welcomes you in, happy to talk as much or as little about the wine as you like. On a clear day you can see San Francisco sitting across nearby San Pablo Bay and Mt. Tamalpais looming like a majestic guardian above Marin County.

Fascinating Fact:

The winery’s name is derived from the lone Acacia tree tucked between grape rows in the vineyard (you can see it from the road).
