Quivera 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. California's landscape is as diverse as its people. From foggy coastlines to dry endless deserts, lush green mountains to rolling hills of vineyards. A morning of snow boarding in the mountains and then ocean kayaking at sunset, this glorious Golden State offers it all.
Quivira Vineyards is a small, family owned winery located in the heart of Sonoma County’s Dry Creek Valley, about 70 miles north of San Francisco. Committed to expressing the unique terroir of Dry Creek Valley, they only craft wines from grapes grown in the estate’s vineyards. Quivira specializes in varietals known to excel in the Dry Creek Valley including Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc. Rhone Varietals and Petite Sirah are also produced.
Quivira's famed Sauvignon Blanc comes from their Fig Tree Vineyard, located contiguous to the Wine Creek Ranch property and part of the Wendt's original purchase in 1981. Right behind their winery, the sandy loam soil is laced with gravel deposits from adjacent Dry Creek producing a well-drained site yielding grapes with a uniquely Quivira flavor profile, making it ideal for growing Sauvignon Blanc.
Quivera Vineyards produce wines such as Sauvignon Blanc, Fig Tree Vineyard and Steelhead Red and Zinfandel, Dry Creek Valley. Quivira’s Fig Tree Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc represents a true taste of place. Their estate vineyard, biodynamically certified, is located between Quivira’s two waterways Dry Creek and Wine Creek and takes its name from a majestic 100 year old mission fig tree that stands amongst the Sauvignon Blanc vines.
Steelhead Red won the Double Gold Medal 2006 at the North of the Gate wine competition. It expresses Quivira's passion for two Dry Creek Valley traditions, blending varieties to make the finest wine possible and wise stewardship of the land. This wine honors the commitment to restore the steelhead and salmon habitat on their estate. Zinfandel is derived from zinfandel vineyards spread out across Dry Creek Valley.
