Matanzas Creek is located in the remote, but breathtakingly beautiful Bennett Valley region of Sonoma County. Since its launch in 1977, the winery has built its reputation on Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot – two varieties that thrive in Sonoma’s temperate climate. Matanzas Creek also produces limited quantities of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Bordeaux-style reds. All of the winery’s fruit comes from sustainably-farmed, estate vineyards scattered throughout the mild interior and cool coastal AVAs of the county. In addition to its wines, Matanzas Creek is also famous for their spectacular lavender gardens.

The unique character and beauty of Matanzas Creek’s winery, vineyards, lavender field and gardens have earned the Estate worldwide recognition as a premier California wine country destination. We invite you to stroll the grounds, play a game of bocce or enjoy our picnic areas. Fee is waived with purchase from your tasting or by signing up to be a member of our wine club.

Picnic at the Winery
We invite you to pack a basket, pick up a bottle of wine in the tasting room, and enjoy a picnic in one of the many scenic spots on the property! Depending on the time of year, you’re likely to smell the fragrant lavender and catch the sounds of buzzing bees or hear the sounds of the frogs that reside in either of the winery’s ponds.

Estate Gardens
Visitors to the winery are greeted by rows upon rows of lush lavender – those who choose to explore the grounds will find themselves surrounded by olive groves, native grasses, and even some local wildlife.
