Gold Mine Ranch - Dry Creek Valley
Planted in 1914 by Charlie Derrick, just before riding off to join the Cavalry of World War I, this gorgeous property is tucked amongst the redwoods in the hills of the southwest corner of Dry Creek Valley. While Charlie's gold mine on the property is no longer productive (he used to produce jewelry from the gold and silver he found), his vines certainly are. Organically and dry farmed, this is usually one of our first Zinfandel vineyards to be picked.
