Dry Creek Vineyard Dusts Off Moldy Oldies in Celebration of 40 Years of Winemaking

Month-Long Tasting Features Rare, Collectible Wines for Sale at the Winery

Forty years ago this month, winery founder David Stare was issued the use permit to build Dry Creek Vineyard at the corner of Dry Creek Road and Lambert Bridge Road. In celebration of this monumental occasion, the winery family has dug deep into their private cellar to re-release several cherished wines going back three decades.

“This is a special occasion for our entire family,” remarks winery President, Kim Stare Wallace. “These wines hold significant meaning to us – such as our 1991 Estate Bullock House Merlot that won the prestigious Grand Prix d’Honneur award in Bordeaux, France or our 1994 25th Anniversary Vintner’s Selection Cabernet Sauvignon. Each wine has a wonderful story behind it.”

Tastings will be held each weekend at the winery as a new flight of vintage wines is  revealed  for  customers  to  taste  and  purchase  in  very  limited quantities. The tasting is priced at $10 per person, and is refundable with purchase. In addition, the winery has 1, 2 and 3 bottle wooden gift boxes available for sale to accompany these incredible wines.

“We are one of the few wineries in the Dry Creek Valley able to offer such a comprehensive, retrospective tasting of vintage wines,” comments Stare Wallace. “This should be a real treat for our customers.”

Below is the August re-release schedule. Once a wine is sold out, it will be removed from the menu and will no longer be offered for tasting.  For more information, call 707-433-1000 ext. 103.
