The history of Dry Creek Vineyard is a long and colorful one. Founded in 1972 by David S. Stare, Dry Creek Vineyard paved the way for a renaissance of winemaking and viticulture in the Dry Creek Valley.  Before his arrival, the Dry Creek Valley was little more than a few family farms and prune orchards. It was Dave’s vision to start a Loire Valley inspired winery that reintroduced consumers to the wines of northern Sonoma County.
Dry Creek Valley may well be California’s undiscovered Cabernet country. Well known for its Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc, Dry Creek Valley actually has more acreage of Cabernet Sauvignon planted than any other varietal. A little known fact is that the Cabernet Sauvignon grown here has contributed significantly to the blends of many well known Cabernets from the Napa and Sonoma Valleys. In addition, the unique terroir of Dry Creek Valley contributes greatly to the flavor profile of Cabernet Sauvignon.
The family at Dry Creek Vineyard believes that great wines begin in the vineyard. For us, winegrowing is a collaborative effort with Mother Nature. Our aim is to strike a careful balance between soil, climate and vine. We take great care in carefully farming, harvesting and shepherding our wines through the winemaking process. The artistry of our winemaking team lies in their ability to carefully guide this process with as little intervention as possible.
Our Winemakers.
- Lisa Bishop Forbes. With more than 20 years of winemaking experience, Lisa is the day-to-day decision maker in our cellar, ultimately responsible for ensuring that we produce only the highest quality wines.
- Nova Perrill. From lab analysis to cellar management, Nova ensures that each and every Dry Creek Vineyard wine is held to our rigorous standards.
-William Knuttel. Bill continues to monitor and mentor the entire cellar crew while consistently working to raise the bar of quality at the winery.
Among the more distinctive aspects of the Dry Creek Valley appellations are:
- It's among the best growing sites for producing quality Cabernet Sauvignon. Most notable is the climate, which is moderately warm, semi-arid and provides a long growing season on well-drained and varied types of soil with low fertility.
- There is a textural difference to the Cabernet Sauvignon – the fruit is more focused and substantial without being overpowering.
- The wines tend to be balanced and refined, more Bordeaux-like in structure, body and complexity.
- The tannins tend to be substantial, promoting wines that are age worthy.
- The flavor profile leans to the earthy, dusty side. Chocolate, cherries, blackberries and dried herbs are among the more common flavors.
Our tasting room will be decked out for the holidays with an abundance of seasonal cheer.
