Founded in 1972 by David S. Stare, our premier, family-owned winery is celebrating over 50 years of winemaking. Watch the story of our winery, now led by the second generation.
#Harvest continues as we work closely with our small, local growers on timing our picks for the season! Last night, after the sun set and the temperatures cooled, the team picked 12 tons of Sauvignon Blanc at Herrick Vineyards.
🌙 Picking grapes at night has a multitude of benefits — from more stable sugar levels and better control over fermentation, to energy saved that would otherwise be used to cool the grapes. And last but not least: there's no blistering sun over you when picking!
Happy 84th #birthday to our founder, Dave Stare 🎂 Thank you for being our resident pioneer and a total joy (and hoot!) around the winery. Cheers! 🍷
Early this morning, we picked Zinfandel at Vogensen Ranch for our Petite Zin Rosé — one of the first red picks this #harvest! Rising more than 800 feet off the valley floor, Vogensen Ranch is located on the back of Bradford Mountain and is one of the more extreme growing sites in all of Dry Creek Valley.
Special thanks to the team at @bevillvineyardmanagement, who trekked these steeply sloped hills in the cool fog!
Last week, our family winery raised a toast to the official start of our 52nd #Harvest! We welcomed in the season with Sauvignon Blanc grapes, beloved variety and star of our pioneer winemaking journey in the Dry Creek Valley since 1972.
We're looking forward to seeing the literal fruits of our labor this year — stay tuned for more updates about harvest. Cheers! 🥂
Last month, we wrapped our first-ever Dry Creek Vineyard Bocce League and celebrated with a nail-biter of a final tournament! Our congratulations go out to the winning team, A$AP Bocce, who brought their A-game every Monday. 🏆
It was a joy to watch these teams face off and share in the laughs and @loandbeholdhealdsburg meals with their loyal spectators. Until next season!
This morning, @foodandwine Executive Wine Editor, Ray Isle, joined CNBC morning news program @squawkboxcnbc to discuss California's rising grape price hike and inflation in the American wine industry. It is an honor to have our 2021 Heritage Vines Zinfandel included as an example of the quality and value of Sonoma County wines! 🍇
A family legacy over 50 years in the making.

The climate of our home appellation is truly wondrous and a key player in our region's spectacular wines 🌤🍇 You may have noticed driving through Dry Creek Valley that there are blankets of fog in the early morning and dramatic temperature shifts! Our long, warm days allow the grapes to fully ripen. Meanwhile, the evening marine layer from the Pacific Ocean helps the grapes mature slowly and retain their acidity and balance — a plus when crafting delicious, harmonious wines!
It's official — our first round of Bocce League games is tonight! 🍷⛹️♀️
Join us on Mondays starting at 5:30 p.m. for the next six weeks to spectate some friendly competition between your favorite local teams. While you're here, sip refreshing Dry Creek Vineyard wines, mingle with friends and family, and enjoy pleasant summer evenings in our garden.
