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.

  • I was wondering what sort of new topic I could start that would pair nicely with my previous posting 'Weekday Wines'; well here it is - Weekend Wines.  Sometimes I just have to stop and take a minute to pat myself on the back for my quick wit but alas, this isn't one of those times.  Anyway, why not talk about wines we enjoy on weekends?  These ...

  • 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

  • We're heading back to (my favorite wine region) Russian River the first weekend in October and are looking for advice on what to do and what to expect.  We've been to RRV several times but only during the off season.  Is there anything special we should do at this time of year, and conversely, is there anything we should avoid?

  • Like Zinfandel, Petite Sirah is primarily a California wine: the Golden State’s long, sunny growing seasons are necessary to ripen Petite Sirah’s substantial tannins and reveal its rich blackberry flavors. The wine’s structure, fruit and inky color make it an excellent blending partner for Zinfandel, red Rhône varieties and even Cabernet Sauvign... Read More

  • I love this Chardonnay, but I can only get it at restaurants or on-line. Why can't I buy it at any stores, like Trader Joe's or Bev-Mo or any retail store?
