Mill Creek Vineyards and Winery is a small, estate winery nestled in the heart of California's wine country. This boutique winery remains under the ownership of its founders, the Kreck family, ensuring that the traditions and ethos upon which it was established continue to thrive. The family's foray into viticulture began in 1965 when they first embarked on planting their vineyards in the Dry Creek Valley.
Less than a decade later, in 1974, they went on to lay the foundations for what would become Mill Creek Winery by producing their first vintage. The wines produced by Mill Creek have consistently received acclaim and accolades for their exquisite taste and quality. These award-winning selections originate from grapes that are diligently cultivated in the vineyards located on the winery estate in Dry Creek, the ancestral Kreck family residence in the scenic Alexander Valley, and a handful of specially curated neighboring vineyards. This devotion to using only the best grapes, coupled with their unparalleled expertise, results in vintages that are a true reflection of the region's unique terroir.
Strategically positioned at the southern gateway to Sonoma County's renowned Dry Creek Valley, the Mill Creek tasting room stands as an inviting prelude to the wonders that the valley holds for passionate and casual wine enthusiasts alike. As visitors step into this enchanting space, they are greeted not just with an array of exceptional wines but also with an immersive experience that celebrates the beauty and heritage of the region. With a seated service offering, guests can unwind and savor their wine while being surrounded by the picturesque setting that includes a beautifully landscaped working water wheel and millpond. Adding to this serene ambiance are the breathtaking panoramic views of the expansive Dry Creek Valley, with its rolling vineyards and sun-dappled hills, all set against the backdrop of the vibrant town of Healdsburg, California. It's an invitation to not just taste, but to truly experience, the essence of Mill Creek Vineyards and Winery.
