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 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?
