West Dry Creek Road in November
West Dry Creek Road in November is one of the most serene and pleasant roads in wine country. The smell of Fall is in the air around every wonderful twist and turn of this laid-back wine country road. West Dry Creek Road begins at Westside Road just outside of the Healdsburg downtown area. The majestic Madrona Manor is where you start your journey along West Dry Creek Road. The West Dry Creek Road stretches along Dry Creek for ten miles to the Bella Vineyards and Wine Caves. There are two other entrances to West Dry Creek Road from Dry Creek Road. There is the Lambert Bridge Road four miles from Highway 101 and the Yoakim Bridge Road about eight miles from Highway 101. If the weather permits, a November picnic along this road is a must. We have some favorite picnic wineries along this route: The Lambert Bridge winery, Quivira Vineyards and Preston Vineyards at the far end of West Dry Creek Road. Both Quivira and Preston are organic and sustainable wineries. You can purchase a picnic lunch in Healdsburg at Big John’s Market or the Oakville Grocery. On Dry Creek Road, there is the Dry Creek General Store. This area of Sonoma County is famous for Zinfandel. But just about any wine, red or white, is delicious. Most of the wineries along this route are small, boutique, and family-owned. Here is our list of favorite wineries on the West Dry creek Wine Trail.
