In the old-world tradition of winemaking families, the names Kreck and Mill Creek Vineyards are synonymous.

From vineyards to cellar and tasting room, the family has been involved in all aspects of running the 10,000 case annual production winery.

  • Liver what? It’s that great wine region you’ve never heard of. Less than an hour from San Francisco. A growing wine scene based on a century and a half of history. Great climate, friendly people, tasting rooms that are not filled to capacity with people you don’t want to be rubbing shoulders with. You know, one of those regions that is truly up ... Read More

  • For some time now, I have noticed a pattern with men who disparage rose as being a "girly" wine. Some of the most accomplished and masculine sommeliers I know would rather drink rose than pretty much anything else. Any thoughts on the male problem with drinking rose? Read More
