Dry Creek Vineyards

California, the most populous state of the United States, located on the Pacific coast of North America is bordered by Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and Mexico. The four largest cities are Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose and San Francisco. California is also the home of and wine producing regions such as Santa Barbara and Northern California's Wine Country.
Winery founder Dave Stare founded Dry Creek Vineyard in 1972. For the first time in its 34-year history, this vineyard is releasing a Cabernet Sauvignon comprised mainly of Dry Creek Valley fruit. The release of this terroir-driven Cabernet represents yet another planned shift in Dry Creek Vineyard’s lineup of wines. They are dedicated to raising quality across the board.
There are only two wines remaining in the Dry Creek Vineyard portfolio that highlight regions other than Dry Creek Valley that include Clarksburg Chenin Blanc and Russian River Valley Chardonnay. The goal is to match variety to place and, whenever possible feature the appellation where the winery resides. The flagship wines, Dry Creek Vineyard Sonoma County Fume Blanc and Heritage Zinfandel, use the Sonoma County designation but each is driven by grapes grown in Dry Creek Valley.
Dry Creek Vineyard lately released Sonoma County’s first Sauvignon Musque, a unique selection of the Sauvignon Blanc grape variety. There are a small number of wineries in California that merge Musque in their Sauvignon Blancs, however only two before Dry Creek have produced what the industry would consider varietal versions and they both are made with grapes grown in the central coast region. After four tiers of judging the 154 wines entered in the 2006 Pacific Coast Oyster Wine Competition, Dry Creek Vineyard's Dry Chenin Blanc in 2005 is again one of the 10 wines selected for the 2006 Oyster Award and has won this award 7 out of 12 times, and at present five years in a row.
Dry Creek Vineyards are one of the best in the wine business and are aware that quality is not accidental but by high intention and perseverance and are devoted to follow it on any backgrounds.
