Last fall, I got the opportunity to visit the Dry Creek Valley in Sonoma not once, but twice, and I can safely say that it is heaven on earth. The views, the wine, the food…I was blown away! I plan on returning this year because I’ve only scratched the surface. This region is jam-packed with some of the best food and wine in the country, and it is a haven for any foodie or wine lover.
Dry Creek Valley is home to 60+ wineries, and a good portion of them are family-owned and operated. The region is northwest of Healdsburg, CA, which has the most charming downtown area that’s jam-packed with world-class restaurants, wine bars, and shopping.
One of the great things about this particular wine region? It is very approachable. It’s definitely not stuffy or pretentious (like some other wine regions might appear to be!), and even if you have limited knowledge about wine, the staff at the wineries are there to assist you and help you find your perfect pairing. Whether you’re a novice or an experienced wine drinker, here’s why Sonoma’s Dry Creek Valley is the ideal place to book your next wine adventure.
