If the name sounds familiar, we wouldn’t be surprised. The very family who started Clif Bar used that same ingenuity and love of food to found Clif Family Winery. Clif Family Winery has two different tasting rooms, one that welcomes walk-ins and one that is reserved for private tasting experiences. The Refugio Tasting Room has a laid-back atmosphere and focuses on wine and food pairings, like the King of the Mountain Tasting, which pairs four bites with four Howell Mountain Wines. The Enoteca Tasting Room is reserved for private tastings, like the Estate Tasting Experience, which highlights the winery’s small-production wines.
Insider Tip: Check out the Clif Family Bruschetteria Food Truck. The truck is typically parked in the heart of St. Helena, just outside their Refugio Tasting Room. The fun menu includes various bruschettas like the Funghi or B.L.T, along with delectable appetizers like polenta tots, always using fresh, CCOF-certified organic and seasonal produce from the Clif Family Farms.
