Dry Creek Wilson Ranch Chenin Blanc (Sonoma, California)

Dry Creek Vineyards

The Dry Creek Vineyard Chenin Blanc from Healdsburg, Sonoma County, is an ice-crisp, dry white packed with pineapples, lychee with hints of honey and lemon.

Chenin Blanc was a commonly grown grape within The Golden State in the 1960s and 70s. Today however, Dry Creek Vineyard is now one of only a handful of Californian wineries creating delightful 100% Chenin Blanc wines with such elegance and pizzazz.

Dry Creek Wilson Ranch Chenin BlancDavid Stare founded the family-owned Dry Creek Vineyard in 1972 with the aim to produce ‘that something special’ in quality wines at reasonable prices.  It has to be said, he has achieved his goal. In the 2010 book by UK wine writer Stephen Brook, The Finest Wines of California, he named Dry Creek Vineyard as the state’s best value winery. While Robert Parker has been quoted as saying, “Dry Creek routinely turns out elegant, classy efforts.”

This Chenin certainly fits David’s belief that wine should be ‘fun, adventurous and romantic’ and will charm any crowd with the subtle white pepper and citrus zest marrying well with white meat and grilled fish.
