By Philip Vonwrede

Mendocino Wineries are an appellation which designates wine produced from grapes that are mostly grown in California, Mendocino County. This region is one of the largest in California and enjoys a diverse climate suitable for vineyards growing. The county of Mendocino is a commercial hub in the state when it comes to wine grapes and enjoys two unique climatic zones that are separated by Mendocino range. Mendocino boasts to be among the leading regions for growing wine organically and at least 25% of vineyards in the area re grown organically. Due to the more focus that the county gives on the organic viticulture; Mendocino Wineries have been a great inspiration for journalists who regard it as the organic wine Mecca in California.

Toulouse Vineyard spearhead the movement of ensuring that the best kind of grapes are grown and developed into the finest quality of wine with the use of environmental-friendly practices and techniques. Their ultimate goal is to provide the most excellent blend of Pinot Noir by fortified by the passion and dedication of winemaking.
