Friends of Dry Creek Vineyard
 

Dear {FIRST_NAME|Friend of Dry Creek Vineyard},

We are just wrapping up our 45th harvest and what a whirlwind it has been! The 2016 harvest has been a pleasant surprise after the short crop of 2015 and the drought conditions during the previous years. We had several heat spikes in September, so once the fruit started coming in, it didn’t stop. The aromas of Sauvignon Blanc are strong and vibrant, Zinfandel is showing some beautiful, pure berry flavors and the Cabernet Sauvignon of this vintage is sure to be a standout!

This issue of our Friends newsletter features an update on the 2016 harvest, as well as a story about our harvest interns from South Africa. Click here for a behind-the-scenes look at how your favorite Dry Creek Vineyard wines are made.

We are also thrilled to introduce our Bordeaux Lovers Wine Club! This new club for 2017 features extremely limited production wines handcrafted from only the five noble Bordeaux varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Each year you will receive two shipments of intensely flavored and impeccably balanced Bordeaux single varietals, in addition to exclusive Meritage blends created to highlight specific districts within the Dry Creek Valley. Click here to learn more!

We hope this issue of Friends of Dry Creek Vineyard finds you enjoying a wonderful autumn season. We look forward to seeing you soon and thank you for your continued support.

Cheers!

The Dry Creek Vineyard family
