Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

From the producer’s organic and biodynamically farmed vineyard, this is blended with 10% Mourvèdre and 7% Carignan, and is robust in oak, tannin and baking spice. Tart cherry and blackberry combine in tandem with black licorice and meaty elements that contrast well. 

W&S 90
Wine & Spirits

Brisk, clean and fragrant, this wine opens with some smokiness, which melds into the strawberry flavors and adds to their richness. Though the alcohol is listed at 14.2 (relatively restrained for Dry Creek zin), it’s apparent, suggesting this might be best served slightly chilled, with grilled lamb.

Preston Vineyards, California
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.

Dry Creek Valley Wine

Sonoma County, California

View all products

A multifaceted and highly reputable sub-region of Sonoma, Dry Creek Valley is responsible for a wide range of wine styles—both red and white. One of the smallest AVAs in California, Dry Creek Valley has a winning combination of ideal geography and climate. Fertile, well-drained soils create concentrated varietal character while long, warm days, bookended by cool nights, allow grapes to reach full phenolic ripeness and balance. The warm and welcoming appellation is home to a number of family-owned vineyards and wineries that place a strong emphasis on sustainable farming practices.

Zinfandel reigns supreme here and still produces in a great number of very old vineyards—often 100 years old or older. These old vines create a powerful, voluptuous and sultry wine unlike those of any other region. Sauvignon Blanc, the valley’s signature white grape, also performs exceptionally well. Many other varieties grow comfortably here, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Syrah. Petite Sirah is often found in blends with Zinfandel.

Unapologetically bold, spice-driven and jammy, Zinfandel has secured it’s title as the darling of California vintners by adapting well to the states’ diverse microclimates and landscapes. Born in Croatia, it later made its way to southern Italy where it was named Primitivo. Fortunately, the imperial nursery of Vienna catalogued specimens of the vine, which sourced a journey to New England in 1829. Parading the true American spirit, Zinfandel found a new home in California during the Gold Rush of 1849. Somm Secret—California's ancient vines of Zinfandel are those that survived the neglect of Prohibition; today these vines produce the most concentrated, ethereal and complex examples.
