Dry Creek Valley’s climate is ideal for growing classic Mediterranean red grape varieties. When farmed for quality, these varieties show our favorite attributes in wines from this appellation: expressive fruit, ripe tannins and balanced acidity. We employ modern techniques such as long pre-fermentation maceration, using open top tanks, a basket press, and aging our wines in only French oak barrels and foudre to highlight the aromatics and flavors derived from the vineyards. Dry Creek wines inspired by European counterparts.
