Violet-Green Winery is located on seven acres of redwood forest overlooking Misty Hill Canyon near Humboldt Bay in far northern California. The winery was named to honor the Violet-green swallow's annual spring migration to the winery as a symbol of nature's promise of renewal. The name also evokes images of the vineyard at veraison, when grapes ripen to contrast dramatically against a green leaf canopy.
Violet-Green Winery was founded as a joint venture between owner/winemakers Don Wattenbarger and Lina Carro. Partners in life and love, they have shared a passion together for fine wines, foods, and the great outdoors for 25 years.
Inspired and encouraged by friends/mentors Les Behrens (Behrens & Hitchcock) and Lisa Drinkward (Drinkward Peschon Entre-Deux-Meres), Don & Lina produced their 2002 debut vintage at Violet-Green Winery. The winery's first seven vintages feature grapes grown exclusively in Northern Mendocino's world-class Alder Springs Vineyard.
