Dry Creek Valley’s weather is ideal for growing classic Mediterranean red grape varieties. When farmed for quality, these varieties show their desired attributes in wines from this appellation that is ripe tannins, expressive fruit and balanced acidity. They use modern techniques such as long pre-fermentation maceration, using open top tanks, a basket press, and aging their wines in only French oak barrels and Foudre to highlight the aromatics and flavors derived from the vineyards.

Dry Creek Valley also offers several award winning wines that include 2004 Petite Frere, 2004 Zindandel, 2003 Syrah Benchland Reserve, 2004 Grenache and 2003 Syrah.
