About This Winery
In a small grove of redwood trees just off the highway is old apple dryer that is home to the Standish wine company. Burgundian-style Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are produced.
The curious wood-shingled winery is actually a historic apple dryer dating back to the 1880s. The two-story redwood structure has been restored and makes for an interesting and unique tasting room. Some of the original equipment is still on site, including the fruit-drying racks and their pulley-door systems. Even though the fruit-drying operation closed in the 1920s, on a warm day the sweet essence of apples still lingers in the air.
Prior to becoming a winery, the historic building was a quaint restaurant. The tasting room occupies the top floor, along with a small kitchen that – with advance notice – can provide food to accompany your tasting. A knowledgeable staff will walk you through their tasting menu and outline the various nuances of their wines.
The winery was founded by brothers Ken and Miles Oswald. The winery is curently owned by Miles and Valerie Oswald who produce Pinot Noir and Chardonnays, selling directly to consumer.↑ Less
