Owner description: 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.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2011

Had not expected the stunning colors. Such a jaw dropping setting. Great wines. The desert wine was the hit of the tasting(had to buy 4 bottles to take home).

“beautiful location and great wine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2011

We went in the middle of the week and were they only guests at the entire winery. We had joined the club without ever visiting the winery, we liked the wine that much, so this was our first visit. We got a guided tour of the garden and lavender garden and then a tasting in a private room. The best surprise was the white dessert wine. The tasting room is spacious but not huge. Our private tasting room offers an intimate setting to taste some amazing wines. We had to buy some lavender products on the way out. This was a fun visit with great wine!

“Beautiful grounds!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2011

The grounds at this winery were beautiful and enjoyed being able to walk around and through the vineyards. Only wish the lavendar would have been in bloom. I am sure that is spectacular!
