About This Wine:
And some amazing Zin-based wines are made in Sonoma County’s Dry Creek Valley. Though Dry Creek farmers grow more than 30 different grape varieties, at the heart of the appellation, some 16 miles long and two miles wide, is Zinfandel.
This is the home of Collier Falls, a family-owned vineyard and winery founded by Barry and Susan Collier, whose first release was a 1997 vintage Dry Creek Zinfandel. Today, they continue to make limited quantities of hillside estate red wines from 20 acres of sustainably farmed vineyards.
“Each year we strive to grow outstanding fruit and make world-class wines,” says Susan. “We hope the wines of Collier Falls express the true flavors of the grapes, and are exceptional examples from this wonderful winegrowing region.” With their 18th vintage of Dry Creek Zinfandel — of which only 293 cases were produced — that is no mere hope. It is a delicious reality.
