September 2020 is California Wine Month
This gives us a great opportunity
to highlight some of the many
incredible wineries we’ve visited
over the years.
We look forward to visiting these
wineries again very soon.
The winery being featured is Truett Hurst in Dry Creek Valley.
Truett Hurst is certified organic and Biodynamic. They believe that the role of the winegrower is to listen to what the vineyards want to express, and then gently bring forth those qualities in the wine. They view their vineyards as living biological systems that are precious, sentient, and unique. They have a personality that wants to be fully expressed through the grapes and this expression can be experienced in every bottle of their single vineyard wines.
Farming in the Dry Creek Valley began more than 150 years ago and vineyards followed soon after. Attracted to the beautiful and fertile landscape, early settlers planted their annual crops on the valley floor and grapevines on the rocky hillsides. Dry Creek is a very unique appellation because of its well defined geographic boundaries that include mountains to the north, beautiful red soil benchlands to the east and west, and a large opening on the southern side that allows cool air to flow from the mountains in the mornings, and a reverse flow moving from the Bay upwards into the valley in the evenings. Zinfandel has always been the star varietal, thriving in this unique microclimate.
“Drinking a well-made wine is like watching a highly choreographed dance – everything must move seamlessly together, without interruption or error. We strive for that perfect execution in all of our wines.” – Ross Reedy, Director of Winemaking
