Sauvignon Blanc and its wood-aged twin, Fume Blanc, first got their start here in this part of Sonoma when Dave Stare first planted the French varietal in the early 1970s. His vision was to start a Loire-Valley-inspired winery that would introduce consumers to the wines of northern Sonoma County. Today the Dry Creek region is dominated by this grape variety, as well as Zinfandel.

The original, old vine-covered winery is now the tasting room, where you can enjoy Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and a Meritage, in addition to their flagship Fume Blanc. The family-owned vineyards provide approximately 65 percent of the overall production at Dry Creek Vineyard. Additional fruit is sourced from vineyards managed by long-term contract growers in Clarksburg, Dry Creek, the Russian River Valley, and other Sonoma County regions.

Inside the wood-beam-ceiling tasting room is a warm cozy fireplace, a stone floor, a wood-topped tasting counter, deli case, and some gift items for sale. Outside are lawns with picnic tables, some with umbrellas. Don’t forget to try the chocolate-covered cherries that are offered with your taste of Cabernet—they are scrumptious.

I stopped by Dry Creek Winery on a Saturday trip from nearby Healdsburg and had a good time. The tasting room is in a large barn and I really liked the rustic feel of the place. Nothing Napa about it. Though the tasting room staff seemed to be a little overworked, we patiently sipped our wine and walked around the vast indoor space. The Sauvignon Blanc (or Fume Blanc) was indeed their best wine. I wasn't crazy about their reds, but on a hot summer day, the Sauv. Blanc did just fine. I'd like to come back to this place on a weekday and definitely spend more time with the staff, since they did seem to be quite knowledgeable.
