Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

Our most favorite winery ! Best time to visit is June, when the lavender fields are in bloom. Great picnic areas, views and the wine is outstanding. Buy a bottle of Journey, if they have it.

My parents were members here, so my dad and I took a drive one day to visit. It's a beautiful winery with fantastic wines. I had met one of the staff at an event in SF so it was nice to see her again. It's "off the beaten track" of Napa/Sonoma....the lavender is such a nice addition to the oak trees, comfortable shaded wood patio, and little spots to have a nice lunch. We bought a case of wine while we were there and I took a nice stumble walking down the gravel driveway...nothing bruised but my ego ha.....

I hope more people discover this nice winery.

This is a place to visit more than once. But if you can only go once, go when the lavender is blooming.

Had not expected the stunning colors. Such a jaw dropping setting. Great wines. The desert wine was the hit of the tasting(had to buy 4 bottles to take home).
