Founded in 1977, Matanzas Creek sits in the remote, breathtakingly beautiful Bennett Valley region of Sonoma County, California.
The estate has built its reputation on world-class Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot – two varietals that thrive in Sonoma’s temperate climate. It also produces limited quantities of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Bordeaux-style reds. All of the fruit comes from sustainably-farmed, estate vineyards scattered throughout the mild interior and cool coastal AVAs of the county. The wines are meticulously crafted, beautifully balanced and site-expressive.
Matanzas Creek is an enchanting wine-country destination. In 1991, the winery’s founder, Sandra McIver, planted two acres of lavender, creating a serene, colourful, and fragrant garden on the winery’s picturesque grounds. The lavender gardens have since become the winery’s trademark, and visitors come from around the world to see them.
