Inman Family Wines

3900 Piner Road

Santa Rosa, Sonoma, 95401


February 22 - 27, 2016

Established in 2000, Inman Family Wines is the result of Kathleen Inman's love of Pinot Noir and the soil that produces it.

Set in the heart of the Russian River Valley, writers will find inspiration while looking over the prized Olivet Grange Vineyard and enjoy the warm ambience of the Inman vineyard farmhouse. Located within five minutes of famous restaurants and wineries, yet set back on a private country road, the house is surrounded by incredible pinot noir and old vine zinfandel vineyards and mountains in the near distance.

The farmhouse is 3 bedrooms, 1 baths, with fine art, antiques and comfortable furniture, a well-equipped kitchen and all of the essentials for a home away from home. In addition to the house and garden, there are beautiful old farm buildings, fruit trees and table grape vines, many of which are more that 75 years old. The agricultural heritage of the property and the farming traditions of Sonoma County have been preserved by planting orchards, vineyards and a kitchen garden, which guests are able to enjoy during their stay.
