Discover Dry Creek Valley

Dry Creek Valley Wine ToursWe invite you to join us for a private wine-tasting tour of the charming Dry Creek Valley, renowned for its old vine Zinfandels and viticultural history dating back to the mid-1800s. This American Viticultural Area (AVA) covers a modest expanse of 16 miles in length and two miles in width, creating an intimate and serene ambiance. The region’s vineyards produce deeply textured, complex wines with an enduring finish.

The valley floor and hillside of Dry Creek Valley offer two distinct microclimates, each with distinctive varietals. The valley floor is known for its white grape varietals, while the hillside is famous for its Zinfandels and Cabernet Sauvignon. The area’s winemakers fervently share their expertise and passion with visitors. The area’s inland and coastal elements create a unique character, with the coastal mountain range keeping daily temperatures warm – ideal conditions for grape ripening. The cooling coastal fog blankets the area at night, enabling a slow maturation of the grapes.

Our tailored Sonoma wine-tasting tours allow us to sample the finest old vine Zinfandels, vibrant Cabernet Sauvignons, refreshing Sauvignon Blancs, and elegant Chardonnays from this northern Sonoma County region. Immerse yourself in the charm, mesmerizing beauty, and finest wines of Dry Creek Valley.

Alexander Valley Wine ToursLocated in the northeast corner of Sonoma County, Alexander Valley stands as the largest and most extensively cultivated wine region in Sonoma, encompassing an area of 15,000 acres, where varietals of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Sangiovese, among others, are produced in small quantities. The region’s unique topography provides ample warmth to ripen the grapes, producing rich, fleshy wines. Benefiting from protection against Pacific breezes from surrounding hillsides, Alexander Valley experiences a slight cooling at night, while abundant rainfall during winter and spring results in a longer growing season.

We offer exclusive private Alexander Valley wine-tasting tours that take you through the region’s easygoing community, divided by the Russian River and flanked by expansive vineyards that produce wines as rustic and unassuming as the land. The people here’s commitment to acting as stewards of the land has earned it a reputation for producing the highest-quality elegant wines. Join us on our wine-tasting tours to explore the region’s distinct wines and immerse yourself in the gracious hospitality of its residents.
