Dry Creek Valley Wine Tours
Join us on an idyllic private Dry Creek Valley Wine Tasting Tour…immerse yourself in its charm, be mesmerized by its beauty, and savor its finest old vine Zinfandels.
Dry Creek Valley is one of the smallest American Viticultural Areas (AVAs), measuring just 16 miles long and two miles wide. Its viticultural history dates back to the mid-1800s, when Zinfandel grapes were the dominant crop and its wines were well on their way to becoming some of the most highly regarded in the industry. This region has vineyards over 140 years old that produce deeply textured, complex wines with a long finish.
Two distinct climates inhabit this land; the valley floor, known for its white varietals, and the hillside, famous for its Zins and Cabernet Sauvignon. There is a special character to this region and its winemakers and vintners are eager to share it with you. Dry Creek Valley is a leader in “eco-tasting” experiences, with six participating Sonoma wineries offering relaxed and informative tours of their certified organic and certified biodynamic wineries. Look for the Green Trail of Dry Creek Valley to schedule a customized tour.
Dry Creek Valley is impacted by inland and coastal elements. The coastal mountain range keeps daily temperatures warm—ideal conditions for grapes to fully ripen—yet allows the cooling coastal fog to blanket the area at night, enabling slow maturation of the grapes.
Come with us to a place where time seems to have stood still. On our private Dry Creek Valley wine tasting tours, sample the spicy Zinfandels, vibrant Cabernet Sauvignons, refreshing Sauvignon Blancs, and elegant Chardonnays from this northern Sonoma County region. You will leave here with a new appreciation for yet another fabulous Sonoma County grape growing region.

After a conference in San Fran 6 of us embarked on a 2 day visit to Napa and Sonoma. On the advice of Trip Advisor we chose Beau Wine Tours, we could not have been more satisfied. Cass, our driver took the 6 of us on a spectacular tour of Sonoma and Napa wineries. Because we wanted this to be relaxing, she suggested we very from our original plans to visit 4 per day to 3 giving us time to really enjoy the tastings as well as the beautiful countryside. Cass was flexible and determined to make this an awesome vacation. Mission accomplished! Take plenty of pictures because the day goes very quickly!
