Guinness McFadden makes good wine, he also keeps his workers busy in the winter by drying and packaging herbs and herb blends. He also sells grass fed organic beef. Stop by, taste and take home some herbs and beef.

This was an interesting stop. We were six in number from three different states including California. John served the wine and later, finding his blog, I identified him as John Cesano, Manager of McFadden. What was immediately evident was John's love of wine and love of passing on information regarding wine in a most energenic way. He spoke fast and... More

Thank you, John so much for the lovely wines, and the education. We took your suggestion and stopped at one of the vineyards you said to try. Have a couple more to see tomorrow. We found the Port you were telling us about, Wow! Can't wait to share the Riesling with my mom. Lol Cheers

I took the advise of trip advisor and wasn't disappointed. Nice wines and a cute little shop. I love it when tasting rooms give you food paring with the wine. The price of wine is reasonable and the tasting is free!!

Like other reviewers, I must congratulate McFadden for hosting an excellent tasting room in Hopland. You can spend a long time there, gaining knowledge about wine growing and tasting from John's experience, plus tasting some excellent wines. We were lucky enough to visit mid-week, when it is quieter, and stayed longer than we expected as John progressed through all the... More

People driving through Hopland are likely to just slow down for the traffic light and glide on through. But don't make the tragic mistake of passing by this delightful winery tasting room - possibly the friendliest tasting room you have ever visited. There's such a wealth of affordably priced, wonderful wines, AND grassfed beef AND organic herbs - something for... More

Friends of ours recommended we stop by the McFadden Tasting Room in Hopland. WOW! John is amazing, a veritable fountain of information, very personable, obviously passionate about his product and it doesn't hurt that his product is one of the most amazing array of wines I've ever tasted! We consume a lot of wine with our food (we have a... More

All folks working the tasting room are very friendly and accommodating. John Cesano's knowledge of ALL wines is just incredible. Some reviews I read said he was overbearing??? You have to be kidding. This man knows his wines and he loves to share his knowledge. I just love listening to him. If you don't want to know about wines then... More

We stopped at McFadden for a wine tasting during a road trip through northern California, and it's one of the most generous tastings I've ever experienced. 12 different wines for free? Can't beat that. While we weren't completely bowled over by any of them, we walked away with a few bottles and a nice story to tell. The host was... More
