Matanzas Creek Winery is a destination to enjoy the best of both rustic country charm and refined quality. Experience Bennett Valley AVA Chardonnay, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. Come to taste the unique Bennett Valley wines but stay and relax at our captivating estate grounds for the day. The spacious estate features an eclectic blend of native grasses, delicate olive trees, exotic perennials and our famed lavender fields. Tucked away from the noise but close enough for an afternoon jaunt. Bocci, picnic and self-guided tours.

Visited the lavender fields at Matanza Creek Winery in Santa Rosa, CA, last week. Timing could not be better. The acres of lavenders in full bloom, the intoxicating smell, the soft humming of the bees, the artists sketching away, under a spectacular blue sky...A poster-perfect...More

A bit out of the way but worth the views and wine. The grounds are very inviting with tables and chairs scattered everywhere. Gorgeous hillside views and delicious wines. Friendly staff encourages you to wander the grounds with your wine. Will return!!
