Wilson Winery was built on tradition and family—much like its landmark barn anchored to the eastern rim of the legendary Dry Creek Valley. When Ken and Diane Wilson opened the century-old cellar doors, they began to share more than their extraordinary wines, they offer a view into a wine valley's history and a legacy of winemaking. It was in 1993 when the Wilsons took on the restoration of the old tin barn—once the Chris Fredson Winery—complete with the original redwood vats and tanks. Today this historic barn houses modern stainless steel tanks and a new collection of French and American oak barrels for aging the Wilsons’ Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Petite Sirah. More than a home for Wilson wines, the old tin barn is the homestead for their growing family of boutique wineries they nurture and are proud to call Wilson Artisan Wineries. We invite you to visit our historic tasting room in the heart of the beautiful Dry Creek Valley, just minutes from downtown Healdsburg. Taste our critically acclaimed single-vineyard designate wines—Zinfandels, Cabernet Sauvignons, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Petite Sirah and more. Enjoy a picnic with a bottle of Wilson wine on our expansive deck. Take in the sweeping panoramic vineyard views of Dry Creek Valley and just relax. With one of the most friendly tasting staff in town, Wilson is a must when in Sonoma County. Our Tasting Room is Open Daily* 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Closed Major Holidays *Groups of 10 or more, by appointment only Read less

Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

Tasting Notes:

Inviting aromatics and flavors of rich plum, blackberry and dark cherry blend with subtle white pepper, spices, coffee and cola. The silky texture also reveals a mocha and vanillin creaminess with hints of chocolate and roasted espresso beans. The plush mouthfeel retains the opulent flavors, filling the palate and lingering into the finish. Double yum!
