Salmon Creek Cellars
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.– Description from Amanda Schuster

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!

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

Love the wine..we live in Minnesota..the Grandkids say if you buy us this for Christmas ..that's all we want.
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? Read More
