Albion and Anderson Valley

  • 1

My lucky husband and I rented a house in Albion next week for about 8 days. Although we go up to the area a few times a year, we rarely stay that long and we are always on the lookout for great plaves we have not yet found.

In the past, our favorite area restaurants have been Moosse Cafe and MacCallum House. This time, we are loking in particular for great casual restaurants and takeout places or grocery stores, as well as some new Anderson Valley wineries to sample. I'd also love some recent thought on the restaurants actually in Albion: Ledford House and the Albion River Inn; and in Little River.

We have tasted and enjoyed the wines at Tolousse (the best tasting experience!), Navarro, Husch, Handley, Roderer and Goldeneye. We also really enjoy Pacific Star and the tasting bar at the Wine Shop in Mendocino. For this trip, we are planning to visit Esterlina and would love to add some other wineries we have not yet tried.

All suggestions appreciated!

  1. Oh fun!

    We love The Mendocino Cafe in Mendoino.

    And Lola's Mexican Restaurant in Boonville right on 128.

    If you head south to Elk, Queenie's Roadhouse is a great place for breakfast or lunch.
