Our Story

About Wentworth Vineyard & Ranch and Katie and Mark Wentworth.


united by love and great wine

We are Katie and Mark Wentworth–two New Jersey natives who were both drawn to Northern California by a shared love of great wine, delicious food and glorious nature. We met here in Mendocino County and have channeled our shared passion for the environment and good wine into Wentworth Vineyard and Ranch–an environmentally conscious small business and a top-notch producer of honest expressions of Coastal California wine.

The business spans two properties–Wentworth Vineyard and Ranch, up on Mendocino Ridge, and Nash Mill Vineyard, located down in Anderson Valley. The original ranch is home to our herd of Highland Cattle and is the site of Mark’s dream vineyard, planted in 2015. Nash Mill is a newer addition, but an older vineyard, with four alluring acres of mature Pinot Noir vines.

We are working towards producing distinctive, bright, balanced, terroir-driven, small-lot wines from 100% Estate Grown grapes.  We are inspired by the tasty wines produced by friends and neighbors in the Mendocino Ridge and Anderson Valley American Viticultural Areas and are excited to debut our own Wentworth Vineyard Estate Grown wines over the next few years
