Dutcher Crossing Vineyard


The majestic vineyard in the heart of the Dry Creek Valley is the home of Dutcher Crossing Winery. Its rich sandy and silt loam surface soils mixed with some gravel and clay provide a favorable terrior for grapevines as roots can extend deeper in the soil profile. For over 30 years this vineyard has been producing outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon grapes for high-quality wines, and its fruit commands some of the highest Cabernet prices in the county. The vineyard is being replanted to align micro soil content with the best grape varietals, root stocks and clones. Our goal is to produce some of the finest estate produced and bottled wines in the Dry Creek Valley.

Taylor Vineyard

 
Taylor Vineyard is located on a rolling hillside and bench in the northeast corner of the Dry Creek Valley. This exceptional vineyard in the Dry Creek appellation has been developed over many years by Pat and Eivor Taylor. The Cabernet Sauvignon vines are located at the top of the hill where the soils are rocky and on the site of an uplifted ancient river bed. This rocky gravel base provides for excellent root development and drainage producing some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon grapes in the area. The Syrah vines are situated on the lower hillside which guarantees ideal sun exposure for even ripening and maturing of Syrah grapes.

Maple Vineyard


Dutcher Crossing’s Zinfandel grapes come from the Twisted Oak Block of Maple’s Medal winning vineyards, located on bench land property on the East side of the Dry Creek Valley. Tom and Tina Maple tend to their superbly groomed vineyards by personally pruning each and every vine on the property during the dormant winter months. They grow a small amount of Petite Sirah grapes that are “field blended” with their Zinfandel as they deliver their annual harvest to the winery for crush. This provides  little more structure and a deeper color to these exceptional Zins. The Maple Zinfandels are known for their lush berry flavors and for staying true to the classic character of Zins from the Dry Creek Valley.

Nevins Vineyard


The Nevins Estate has been purchased by Gary Cooney.  The Cooney family continues the Nevin's tradition of growing quality grapes.  The grapes for 100% Cabernet Sauvignon are grown on the two uppermost blocks of the hillside vineyard in the Alexander Valley. The blocks are small and at one of the highest elevations of the Valley where many of the great cabs of Sonoma County are grown. The vineyard is highly regarded as one of the top cab vineyards in the area, having supplied grapes since 1994 to two of Sonoma’s most prestigious wineries. Each vintage has produced a distinctive varietal character, thanks to long, even growing seasons which allow for extra hang time on the vines until perfect ripeness and flavor maturity are achieved.

Stuhlmuller Vineyard


Kerry Damskey has worked with grapes from these well-known vineyards for several years and knows the various Chardonnay blocks especially well. He has selected a choice block located along a cooler gravel bed area of the vineyards, adjacent to the Russian River where it runs through Alexander Valley. “This translates to a wonderful mineralism in the taste to harmonize with the tropical fruit flavors typical of Stuhlmuller Chardonnay and lends to the wine’s longevity“ in the words of Kerry Damskey, the Dutcher Crossing winemaker. Chardonnay made from these grapes produces elegant wines with subtle fruit flavors that linger through the finish.

Costello  Vineyard


Planted to Chardonnay, this vineyard sits on a precipitous 1,100 foot elevation on the eastern slopes overlooking the town of Geyserville.  At this elevation, the vineyards have natural cooling and the vines produce wines of greater structure due to smaller berries with less vigorous canopies.  The vineyards face northwest assuring a slow maturation for full flavor and berry development.
