Salmon Creek is a brand owned by Bronco Wine Company in California. It is operated by the Franzia family, relatives of Ernest Gallo, who are known for owning several inexpensive brands including Charles Shaw (Two-Buck Chuck) and Franzia box wines. Salmon Creek is one of their more “premium” brands, offered at many restaurants and retail establishments. The wines are available in single varietal whites, reds, rosés, sparkling wines and blends.

  • This is the time of the year that you see a slew of rosé wine reviews, as the summer is known as pink wine season. This is underscored by the fact that most wineries release their rosés in the spring no doubt in an effort to latch on to the popular sentiment. For years, I refused to buy into to the “summer means rosé” mindset as I firmly believe... Read More

  • We recently enjoyed Salmon Creek Merlot at a restaurant just north of Olympia, WA. I forgot to ask them where they purchase it. Could you provide a list of wine retailers in the Olymoia/Tacoma area where we could purchase this wine. Thank you very much!

  • Hey everyone, what are some of your favorite 'everyday' or M-F types of wines to accompany a regular dinner?  I personally have enjoyed the Montoya Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, and I usually pick it up from Total Wines out here in Virginia.  This is one of those fruit-forward cabs that isn't too complex for me to appreciate, and it usually cost...

  • Salmon Creek Merlot 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Unfortunately for me, I can't purchase this wine at a local store, only through specialty shops which charge a premium price. If you can buy it DO! It's a fantastic wine for the price. In a blind taste test against other more expensive Cabs - it came out the winner. Read More

  • Have noticed the Salmon Creek 2009 Chardonnay is lacking any oak character. Have they changed this wine, or did we get a bad batch?
