Matanzas Creek Winery is a destination to enjoy the best of both rustic country charm and refined quality. Experience Bennett Valley AVA Chardonnay, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. Come to taste the unique Bennett Valley wines but stay and relax at our captivating estate grounds for the day. The spacious estate features an eclectic blend of native grasses, delicate olive trees, exotic perennials and our famed lavender fields. Tucked away from the noise but close enough for an afternoon jaunt. Bocci, picnic and self-guided tours.

Best experience in Sonoma!

Excellent wines in a gorgeous, laid back atmosphere. Much better ambiance than some of the bigger wineries. Paul was super helpful and knowledgeable!

Excellent wines and a really nice venue. Raining when we were there, but did not deter our enjoyment of the winery. We were here a few years ago in the spring when the Lavender was in bloom. I think that that is the best time to visit. Rain or shine it is still worth making the drive to the winery.

We stopped here on a whim but we had a great time and ended up joining the wine club. We did the tasting with the food pairing since we had skipped dinner and it was decadent in flavor and well done! I wish I could remember the name of the woman who helped us because she was a total gem.... More

We went with club members and got treated to a wonderful experience! We tasted MANY wines and enjoyed the store and grounds. We hope to come sometime when the lavender is in bloom! Hard to find, but worth the trip!

Knowledgeable staff for wine tasting. Gorgeous view and great wine. We sat out on the deck with a glass of wine and brought our own picnic eats which was fine with the staff.

A trip to this winery gives you much more than a wine tasting experience although they do have several Wines that would meet your highest expectations. The lavender fields give me a very uplifting feeling every time I arrive! Totally one of my favs!

My wife and I had been here years ago and returned last week. It was our best experience in a week of visiting many wineries in the area. Our host, Kerie (sp?) was warm, extremely helpful, and very knowledgeable about the area and wine making. We sat at a table and enjoyed a very creative and delicious pairing (kudos to... More
