Preston of Dry Creek

Preston of Dry Creek Review

The long driveway at this winery, flanked by vineyards and punctuated by the occasional olive tree, winds down to some farmhouses encircling a shady yard with picnic tables. In summer a small selection of organic produce grown in the winery's gardens is sold at an impromptu stand on the front porch, and house-made bread and olive oil are available year-round. Owners Lou and Susan Preston are committed to organic growing techniques and use only estate-grown grapes in their wines, which include Sauvignon Blanc and such Rhône varietals as Syrah and Viognier. The family's down-home style is particularly in evidence on Sunday, the only day of the week that tasting-room staffers sell a 3-liter bottle of Guadagni Red, a primarily Zinfandel blend filled from the barrel right in front of you.
