Matanzas Creek Winery is a destination to enjoy the best of both rustic country charm and refined quality. Experience Bennett Valley AVA Chardonnay, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. Come to taste the unique Bennett Valley wines but stay and relax at our captivating estate grounds for the day. The spacious estate features an eclectic blend of native grasses, delicate olive trees, exotic perennials and our famed lavender fields. Tucked away from the noise but close enough for an afternoon jaunt. Bocci, picnic and self-guided tours.

I am not a huge wine drinker so I chose wineries by their views or extra touches. This quiet little winery was awesome! The wine was good, the views were beautiful, and the lavender was heavenly! I loved it!

We came from San Jose, almost a 2 hour drive. We were lucky to see the lavander in blossom (late June). We could walk around the property and take beautiful pictures. Wine was delicious ! We stayed there the whole afternoon.

This was so nice. Beautiful lavender garden (at their peak). What a nice sight. Then the wine tasting was also very good. Bring a picnic and buy a bottle of wine to enjoy with your lunch. What a nice afternoon there.

The lavender gardens are stunningly beautiful and tranquil to walk amongst. The wine tasting was fairly reasonable, but it seemed a bit crowded and less accommodating than smaller wineries in the area. The Grounds offered picnicking and social gatherings for those that brought their own...More

I don’t normally like sweet wines but the lychee wine was super good. They have bocce ball on their grounds which is a lot of fun. There’s also a lavender farm but it wasn’t in season. Can’t wait to return when it’s in bloom.
