Preston Vineyards was founded by Lou and Susan Preston in 1973 with the conversion of an old prune orchard and dehydrator. From those rather crude beginnings evolved a vineyard, a winery and a philosophy grounded in the soils and traditions of Dry Creek Valley. We have a slightly different slant on wines and the wine industry. Part of our story is what we don't do. We don't make Chardonnay, we discontinued Cabernet, and have never made White Zin. I know, blasphemy. We are farmers at heart and approach winemaking as the logical end point of the growing cycle. All our wines are estate grown. We accept as an imperative the responsible husbandry of our soils and farm organically to the extent possible; we have used no insecticides for the past decade. We view ourselves as participants in a dynamic continuum of winemaking here in Dry Creek Valley and respond to historical precedent as well as creative inspiration in the development of our product line.
