Anderson Valley is located approximately 150 miles north of San Francisco. Nestled in between Cloverdale on the 101 corridor to the South East, and Highway 1 to the West, Anderson Valley is a unique, beautiful, and rural valley, accessible only by a winding two-lane country highway. Highway 128 parallels the Navarro River and travels through the tiny towns of Yorkville, Boonville, Philo and Navarro. Only about fifteen miles long, this beautiful valley is filled with panoramic views of apple orchards, olive groves, grazing sheep, vineyards and rolling hills studded with giant oaks in the southern portion of the valley, giving way to the beauty of the redwoods in the north.
Historically, the valley’s economy has been dominated by the lumber industry, the raising of sheep, and farming. In recent years, the addition of world-class wineries has been a growing source of economy for the valley.
The heart and soul of Anderson Valley lies in the town of Boonville. Founded in 1852, the largest of the Valley towns, Boonville has six restaurants, several shops that feature local artisans, and a world-class microbrewery. Boonville is also home to the Mendocino County Fair and Apple Show as well as the Boonville Hotel.
