The winery's 40 acres of premium vineyards are located in Fair Play Appellation. Decomposed granite soils and a balanced microclimate at a 2,500 foot average elevation allow us to produce premium grapes with the distinct flavor of the foothills. Our Fair Play Farms vineyard, planted in 1999, is one of the best in the entire Sierra Foothills. The grape growing sites in this vineyard were chosen to bring out the best quality in each varietal and all of the vines are pruned by hand. The first crops were dropped to increase vigor in the plant and to promote better fruit. All rootstocks and clones were matched to the unique soil situations in every block, creating the most distinction in the produced wines. Perry Creek’s winemaking team of Garrett Buckland, Stefan Tscheppe and Jonathan Pack combines experience from Napa, Austria and the Foothills. They share a vineyard driven approach, developing a personality and character for each wine they produce. At the same time they incorporate the typicity of the varietal and the unique flavors of the different vintages. The unique, complex and elegant flavors representing Perry Creek Winery and the Terroir of the appellation have earned us 90Pts+ ratings in Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast and many other competitions.

This is a Gold Medal Wine Club Gold Series selection. Benefiting from the high elevation (2500+ feet) and the well-drained rich soils of the Sierra Foothills is the Perry Creek 2005 Syrah, with well-ripened tannins and a unique combination of fruit and spiciness not found in many California Syrahs. The animating 2005 Syrah has garnered a notable collection of medals in recent wine competitions, including a Gold Medal from the Riverside International Wine Competition, a Gold Medal from the Lodi International Wine Awards, a Silver Medal from the Taster’s Guild Awards, and a second Silver Medal from the Best of Appellation Competition. After maturing in oak barrels for several months, the Perry Creek Syrah exhibits a creamy, toasty texture which blends well with the rare complexity of spicy fruit flavors. Blackberries, cinnamon, and black olive notes are followed by an earthy tobacco essence and smooth, toasty vanilla flavors on the finish. Try pairing the Perry Creek 2005 Syrah with sauted eggplant pasta, lamb chops, and your favorite casseroles. 95% Syrah, 5% Petite Syrah. Aged 18 months in oak
