There’s more than one way to enjoy our Lake County pear harvest! The vintners at Mt. Konocti Winery in Kelseyville are known for crafting their Lady Of The Lake sparkling pear wine made from locally grown Bartlett pears. You can sample and purchase this offering at their tasting room at 2550 Big Valley Road (open weekdays by appointment, and open to the public on Saturdays from 11am-4pm). It is also available for purchase at these fine local retail locations: A+H General Store and Riviera Market in Kelseyville; all Hardester's Market locations; Bruno’s Market, Westgate Market & Gas, and Wine In The Willows in Lakeport; and Mar-Vals Sentry Market in Upper Lake. Cheers to a “pearfect” glass of local bubbly!
Here in Lake County, we’ve put the “country” back in wine country! Our local vintners are proud to craft award-winning wines that are putting us on the map, served up with our signature relaxed, approachable style at their tasting rooms. Today’s spotlight falls on Thorn Hill Vineyards on Highway 29 in the Red Hills AVA. Thorn Hill’s wine tasting room is a Mediterranean-inspired haven where you can sip elegant sparkling wine to robust reds, and crisp whites to exquisite dessert wines. Bonus: you’re likely to find our Lake County Winery Association Director, Helena Welsh, pouring at the wine bar! Thorn Hill also offers beautiful Tuscan inspired Villa Suites on site to complete your wine country stay experience. For more information and hours, visit https://thornhillwinelakecounty.com

It’s pear harvest season! Today, the U.S. is the third largest pear producing country in the world, and our county is proud of its long-standing reputation as a premiere pear growing region. Our bustling pear sheds are hard at work bringing in this year’s bounty (these photos are from a past season). While we grow several varieties, in these parts the Bartlett is king. If you haven’t had the pleasure of eating our ripe, juicy pears—you’re missing out on one of Lake County’s finest pleasures. Photo credit: @karenpavonephotography
