We are proud to announce the release of our 50th Anniversary edition of Fumé Blanc to celebrate the winery’s achievement of 50 years of family winemaking in Sonoma County, California. Watch our video below about its commemorative packaging, presented by President Kim Stare Wallace.
The commemorative packaging features printing on both sides of the front and back labels, offering viewers a 360-degree retrospective view of when the winery was founded five decades ago. The front label showcases the historical 1972 Fumé Blanc label, while the back label displays photographs of the first harvest, the construction of the winery, and the groundbreaking ceremony with Founder David S. Stare and his daughter Kim turning over the first shovel of dirt. Fumé Blanc holds a special place in the heart and soul of our family winery, as Dry Creek Vineyard was the first to produce Fumé Blanc in the region.
“We are at a pivotal moment in the history of Dry Creek Vineyard,” said Kim. “Our first vintage of Fumé Blanc was in 1972, and we have been building on that legacy for 50 years. We remain true to ourselves and our commitment to producing world-class wines from our estate vineyards and small, local family farms.”
We hope you enjoy this special 2021 vintage of Fumé Blanc as much as we do!
