Marimar Estate is nestled in the rolling hills of Western Sonoma County, 10 miles from the Pacific and about 50 miles north of San Francisco in the Russian River/Green Valley appellation. You can't miss the two 10-foot metal sculptures of the resident springer spaniels, Chico and Bonita, that stand guard over the vineyard. Organically grown Chardonnays and pinot noirs are specialties. The Catalan farmhouse/winery, open daily 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., is decorated in antiques and objects from Spain. Dogs welcome in outdoor areas.
