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.

We had picked up lunch at a nearby deli and planned to sample wines and find a great wine to have with lunch. We just didn't find that great wine, only an average one. The picnic area is pretty nice; very shady and easy to...More

Matanzas Creek Winery is located 6097 Bennett Valley Rd, Santa Rosa, CA 95404. Every year in June when their lavender bloom. Very efficient tour for the whole family or a couple. You will smell the aroma from lavender flowers.
