45th Anniversary Cabernet Sauvignon
Our 45th Anniversary Cabernet Sauvignon pays homage to the early days of Dry Creek Vineyard and the style of our original winemaker, Dave Stare.
Established in 1972, Dry Creek Vineyard is Dry Creek Valley’s flagship winery located in the heart of Sonoma County, California. As the region’s first new winery following Prohibition, founder David Stare paved the way for a viticultural rebirth in this vibrant winegrowing appellation. Among other industry benchmarks, Dry Creek Vineyard is recognized as the first winery to plant Sauvignon Blanc in the Dry Creek Valley. A pioneer of Bordeaux-style blending, the winery was also the first to use the term Meritage with the 1985 vintage and the first to coin the term “Old Vine” to describe pre-Prohibition era Zinfandel vineyards.
This premier, family-owned winery is celebrating more than four decades of winemaking and is led by the second generation. Dave’s daughter, Kim Stare Wallace, serves as President overseeing a successful family winemaking and grape growing business that includes 185 acres of sustainably farmed vineyards. Named one of the top 100 wineries of 2015 by Wine & Spirits Magazine, the winery is also 100% Certified Sustainable. Dry Creek Vineyard proudly produces many delicious wines, including Dry Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and Meritage blends as well as a handful of single vineyard selections.
