Gustafson Family Wines are sustainable and satisfying

Gustafson Family Vineyards, the highest elevation winery in Dry Creek Valley, enjoys commanding, panoramic views of Lake Sonoma, Dry Creek Valley, and the Mayacamas Mountains, thirty miles to the east.

At an elevation of 1800 feet above sea level, it has a rich, red volcanic soil known for producing superb wine grapes. The first vines were planted in 2002, and vineyard plantings are now complete at 20 acres with varieties including Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petite Verdot, Sauvignon Blanc, and Riesling.

The lean volcanic soils regulate growth and add complexity to the wines. Grapes grown at such high elevations produce wines of elegant and subtle character. Harvested in the cool morning air, their fruit is gently processed and fermented in small lots to develop soft tannins and rich flavor profiles.

For a good introduction to these quality, sustainably farmed wines, try one of these Gustafson varietals:

Gustafson Dry Creek Valley Riesling

This classic has notes of white peach and honeydew melon layer themselves over aromas of mandarin, white flowers, and a light touch of wet slate and earth. On the palate, ripe pear and white nectarine wash over whispers of chamomile, lychee, and fresh herbs with an enveloping mouthfeel. The finish features a bright minerality and acidity, balanced by a conservative amount of residual sugar that ensures a perfect complement to a variety of spicy dishes.

Gustafson Dry Creek Valley Rosé of Syrah

This juicy rosé is elegant with a floral bouquet matched with a great backbone of acidity. Delicate noes of rose petals, peonies, and ripe strawberries unfold from the glass, followed by notes of tart cranberries, dragon fruit, and a faint hint of honeydew melon on the palate.

You can experience the wines of Gustafson Family Vineyards, and well as wine from all around the globe, at larger, independently owned wine shops that offer you a superior selection and an experienced staff that will help you find the perfect bottle every time.
