About Porter Creek Vineyards
Porter Creek is one of the major tributaries to the Russian River, which flows through the Russian River Valley in Sonoma wine country. So, it’s only natural that a vineyard and winery that sits adjacent to the meandering waterway is named Porter Creek Vineyards. Porter Creek Vineyards is owned and operated by a father and son team. Together, George Davis, the founder, and his son, Alex, cultivate organic, hill-side, grape varieties from the Burgundy and Rhone.
What to Try at Porter Creek
Using natural fermentation processes exclusively, and discreetly selected French oak barrels for aging, Porter Creek Vineyards creates exceptional and handcrafted wine. When you visit, you’ll find exquisite wines that “speak to the vineyard character and the particular climatic conditions of the vintage.” Try one of the many Porter Creek Pinot Noir or Chardonnay varieties when you visit. In addition, you’ll find a Viognier, Carignane, Syrah, and Zinfandel to sample. If you’re visiting on a warm day, the Porter Creek Rosé is another great choice!
