 Harvest Luncheon at Fort Ross Orchard

We invite you to join us for lunch in the historic Fort Ross Orchard with chef Pete Coleman preparing a feast of seasonal fare and local wines. Lunch will be served family style in the historic Fort Ross orchard. 

Wine generously donated by Fort Ross Vineyard whose tasting room is on the ridge above the orchard, approximately 15 minutes by car:
