Cakebread Cellars Farms
Anderson Valley Vineyard
This 62 acre site borders Anderson Creek. Owner Bruce Cakebread has revegetated the entire riparian corridor by planting white alder, Oregon ash, valley oak, black oak, and box elder. See also other Cakebread sites in the Napa River watershed.
Howell Mountain Vineyard
Only 28 acres are farmed on this 194-acre site on Howell Mountain. The vineyard managers use motion sensors, cameras, and high fencing to monitor the presence of a resident family of bears, and typically lose several thousand dollars of grapes to the bears’ late summer snacking.
