Here at Dry Creek Vineyard, our 45th harvest just wrapped up and it is showing all the signs of a great vintage. It’s hard to believe that in just five short years, we’ll be celebrating our 50th! With each passing year, we find ourselves one of the few remaining family-owned wineries driven to create appellation focused, varietal defining wines that rival the best in California.
The 2016 harvest has been a pleasant surprise after the short crop of 2015 and the drought conditions during the previous years. We just brought in our last lot of fruit, and the quality of this vintage has been incredible. The aromas of Sauvignon Blanc are coming on strong, Zinfandel is showing some beautiful, pure berry flavors and the Cabernet Sauvignon of this vintage is sure to be a standout!
