Dry Creek Valley – Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon Wine at their Finest

In the heart of Sonoma County Wine Country, just outside of Healdsburg, lies a narrow valley just 2 miles wine and 16 miles long.  The Dry Creek Valley is home to over 60 different wineries which produce some of the nation’s finest wine.  Exploring its winding country roads you will encounter beautiful views of row upon row of wine grape covered fields.  In the fall, after the grapes have been harvested and a new year’s wine sits resting from the crush,  the cooler autumn weather turns the leaves on the vines fiery reds and yellows. 

Lovers of red wine will be interested to know that Dry Creek Valley is particularly known for producing excellent Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon with bold flavor and a clean finish.  Prefer white wine?  Not to worry, Sonoma County’s Dry Creek Valley is also known for its excellent Sauvignon Blanc.  Of course there are other varietals as well, and you will find a variety of different kinds of wine at each winery.  Merlot, Syrah, Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio, Fume Blanc, Petite Syrah, Viognier, Grenache, Carignane, Counoise, Grenache Blanc, Cinsaut and even Port and Rosé wine round out Dry Creek Valley winery offerings. 

We heartily recommend beginning your exploration of the Dry Creek Valley award-winning Zinfandel with "PoiZin…the wine to die for" from Armida Winery.  Delightfully jammy and bold yet dry this is a Zinfandel that won’t disappoint.  The view from their winery out over Dry Creek Valley is fabulous and worth the drive in and of itself. 

Dry Creek Valley - Wine Country at its finest!  Each post plaque carries the name of a winery in the region. Prefer your wine a little on the sweet side?  How about a desert wine to pair with that chocolate?  The folks at Fritz Winery have you covered.  Their late harvest Zinfandel will have you singing the praises of the beautiful Dry Creek Valley and its wonderful wine!  The quiet patio area at this secluded winery will have you relaxing and enjoying the good life in wine country in no time at all!

Many of the wineries have tasting rooms which are open to the public.  Why not take advantage of the wonderful weather in Wine Country?  Grab a picnic lunch and head on out for a day of wine tasting!  There are picnic facility at many of the wineries and you can always buy a bottle of award-winning wine to go with that lunch!  Depending on the winery the tasting may be free or the winery may charge a small fee (usually $5-$10) to taste their wine. 

Eager to start planning your tour of wine country?  Don’t forget to include at least one wonderful winery in Dry Creek Valley!
