Quivira is committed to making the finest wines that showcase the unique terrior of Dry Creek Valley. Quivira specializes in small-lot wines from varietals specifically matched to the soils, seasonal strength of sun, and coastal influenced nights that accentuate the unique characteristics that flow from the vine directly to the wine. The quality of our wines is an honest reflection of our commitment to this land, Biodynamic agriculture and our dedication to artisan winemaking. Quivira has been a Demeter-certified Biodynamic and organic winery since 2005 and is guided by a deeply-held principle of careful stewardship of the land and all its creatures. Environmentally conscious winegrowing and winemaking is a way of life at Quivira and the difference can be seen at the estate and tasted in the wines. The Quivira estate comprises four distinct vineyards within the Dry Creek Valley appellation in Sonoma County with a total of 93 acres of vines. In addition to Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc, Quivira grows several Rhone varieties such as Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre. Winemaker Hugh Chappelle works closely with Quivira's vineyard crew to capture the truest expression of each varietal from Quivira's vineyards. Tasting Room Hours Open daily 11:00am to 5:00pm, except major holidays. Read less
