For 150 years, the Mauritson Family Winery has been growing grapes in the Dry Creek Valley. Six generations later and they are still doing what they do best. Their winemaking facility opened back in 2004 and welcomes visitors to tour and taste daily. Clay Mauritson sure knew what he was doing back in 1990 when he returned from college and followed his dream back to the vineyards. The Mauritson family Winery is just a quick 5-minute drive from the Honor Mansion.
