Pure Mendocino — the Organic Dinner

New Location: Campovida in Hopland

Pure Mendocino is a celebration of the best Mendocino County has to offer: locally grown, organic food and wine, live music performed by local musicians, and a reunion with friends and community, all in support of a good cause. Enjoy the late summer evening under the shade of tall oaks; catch up with old friends; taste the best of the harvest, artfully prepared.

Dress is nice casual, comfortable and easy. Come prepared for a warm night, but bring a wrap or light jacket in case the night brings a chill. Parking is limited, so carpooling is encouraged and designated drivers strongly suggested.

COVID Safety: In order to ensure the safest possible event for all guests, CRC kindly requests that anyone experiencing cold or flu symptoms to refrain from attending Pure Mendocino. We strongly recommend that guests take a Covid rapid test at home the day of the event, and of course, not attend if their result is positive.

Pure Mendocino is a celebration of Mendocino County’s long tradition of organic and biodynamic farming. The event begins with a wine tasting reception in the meadow, featuring appetizers prepared by local chefs. The farm-to-table dinner, prepared by Chef Olan Cox, is served family style to the table.

Pure Mendocino — Organic Dinner takes place at Dark Horse Farms and Vineyards in Ukiah.

Dancing begins soon after dinner, this year to the sounds of Clay Hawkins: late night, boot-stomping road music from the heart.
