Dry Creek Valley AVA
The Dry Creek Valley in north Sonoma County is 16 miles long and at its widest point 2 miles. From the wine country town of Healdsburg, two beautiful backroads follow the Dry Creek Valley to its end at Lake Sonoma. Dry Creek Road is the main route along the Dry Creek Valley and West Dry Creek Road is much less traveled but very inviting to joggers, walkers, and cyclists. The Dry Creek AVA includes 9000 vineyard acres and 70 wineries. Most of the wineries are small and family-owned.
