Wine Tasting in Novato

Novato has the good fortune of being home to many award-winning California wineries, so relax and toast your good fortune with a glass of locally made award-winning wine at Trek Winery — Novato’s new family-owned tasting room. Situated in the heart of Old Town, this large, spacious gathering place blends a modern floor plan and rustic earth tones with cozy seating clusters, bar tables, and a gorgeous heated outdoor patio area with conversation nooks and fire-pits. The winery also hosts an impressive monthly entertainment roster of live musicians and bands, along with “A list” comedy shows.

Novato is also the proud home of historical Pacheco Ranch Winery, named for patron California pioneer Ignacio Pacheco, who settled here in 1840 and is credited with planting the first grape vines in this region. Nestled on a gently sloping hillside off Alameda del Prado in Ignacio, the winery is still owned and operated by Pacheco’s descendants who occupy the original two-story stately Italianate estate (circa 1876) and continue to produce fine handcrafted Cabernets. Pacheco Ranch Winery is open for tours, tastings, and special events by appointment only.
