Where's your #happyplace? 🍷 For us, it can be a fancy dinner table with friends, but sometimes it's just a humble, peaceful nook. That's the beauty of it — it is what we make of it (and where we can find the wine!). P.S. We're always so excited to see someone from across the world discover and enjoy our wines. We had big dreams for this small family winery 50 years ago, and we're still going at it stronger than ever now! 📷️ @sweetylife_lim
From vines to grape to bottle, our Endeavour Vineyard has truly been a labor of love. It is the backbone of our Cabernet Sauvignon program, the culmination of many years searching for the perfect location with excellent soil conditions, topography and sun exposure — a vineyard with its own sustainable ecosystem. ♻️ With a bottle of our Endeavour Cabernet Sauvignon, we hope you can taste our second generation's vision to grow Cab that rivals the finest of any in California. Today, this luxurious varietal adds an elegant touch to celebrations and events, both at our family winery and the gatherings of our loyal guests! We can't wait to experience its 2019 vintage soon.
Proud to announce that we placed second in the Luxury and Classic categories for @WineBusinessMonthly's PACK Design Awards! 🏆 Here are the winning entries: 2019 50th Anniversary Cabernet Sauvignon ⚓ Honoring its Bordeaux-inspired roots, this bronze, pewter-adhesive label was handmade in France. The label features an detailed illustration of our family winery, showcasing its long history in the region — as well as a sailboat, representing our love of sailing and reputation as the Wine for Sailors. 2021 50th Anniversary Fumé Blanc ⚓ This pioneering varietal notably includes a back label that, if viewed from the front through the glass, shows a retrospective slideshow of our family winery's founding. Turning the bottle around, the back of the front label displays our vintage 1972 Fumé Blanc label — a throwback to the wine that started it all and the legacy of Dry Creek Vineyard. Both wines are available in our Tasting Room and on our website if you'd like to take a marvel at the bottles yourself!
Happy #NationalWhiteWineDay 🥂 What's your go-to white wine? While sailing in Maine, our president Kim's choice is definitely our crisp and refreshing Dry Chenin Blanc! Perfect to cool down with on a sunny, warm day. 🌞
#WorldConservationDay is coming to an end, but to our fellow nature lovers and biodiversity advocates, every day is Conservation Day. 🐝 Thank you for doing your part to keep our plants and animals healthy, happy and safe! 📷️ Sunflowers and bees (kept on winery property), hard at work in our Employee Garden
Celebrating our 50-year legacy in the commemorative packaging of our 2021 Fumé Blanc! 🥇 Our family winery has become the standard bearer for Fumé Blanc in Sonoma County, with founder David S. Stare being the first to plant Sauvignon Blanc and to produce a Fumé Blanc in the region. Led by second-generation owner Kim Stare Wallace, we're throwing some innovative design in the mix while staying firmly committed to a "No Compromises" philosophy in our winemaking. We're proud to present the 50th consecutive vintage of this remarkable, crowd-pleasing white wine! 90 points by @SunsetMag 📷️ @artalewine
Just northwest of our winery lies Wallace Ranch, now fully in #veraison — in other words, officially ripening! 🍇 This incredible vineyard is named so because it's on the home property of Proprietors Kim and Don Wallace, and it was the first to be daringly planted using the Heritage Clone in 1994. These happy vines are the centerpiece of our estate Zinfandel program — Wallace Ranch's well-draining soil and ideal microclimate are perfectly suited to grow world class Zinfandel grapes.
Us in anticipation of the big 50th Anniversary Gala for our Trade family tomorrow 🌞 So excited!
