Discover Dry Creek Valley

We invite you to join us for a private Sonoma wine-tasting tour of the charming Dry Creek Valley, renowned for its old vine Zinfandels and viticultural history dating back to the mid-1800s.

Dry Creek Wine ToursThe Dry Creek Valley American Viticultural Area (AVA) covers a modest expanse of 16 miles in length and two miles in width, featuring valley floor and hillside vineyards. Dry Creek Valley offers an intimate and serene ambiance, and its size makes for an ideal Sonoma wine tour that fully captures everything this exquisite AVA offers.

Indulge in the deeply textured, complex wines of Dry Creek Valley, each with an enduring finish that will leave a lasting impression. The two microclimates of Dry Creek Valley AVA offer uniquely distinctive varietals.

The area’s winemakers, driven by their expertise and passion, eagerly share their knowledge with visitors. Dry Creek Valley’s inland and coastal elements combine to form unique characteristics.
