Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“Beautiful grounds!”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

The grounds at this winery were beautiful and enjoyed being able to walk around and through the vineyards. Only wish the lavendar would have been in bloom. I am sure that is spectacular!

“OMG! Wine & Lavender!”
Reviewed October 23, 2011

This was by far one of our favorite wineries!! "Ira" was most helpful, informative, personal and just plain fun. Made us feel very special being our honeymoon and all. Not a stuffy place at all. The lavender prints, toiletries.......everything was amazing. Would love to go in June when it's all in full bloom. Still amazing to walk through the lavender fields!

“Quiet and Beautiful Gardens”
Reviewed September 20, 2011

We visited on a Sunday morning, too early to touch a glass of wine. We enjoyed the lavender and grass gardens. Everything is done very nicely, and they even seem to have short garden tours. I have no idea if the wine is any good, butthe gardens are worth the visit.

“Amazing! This will be a repeat when I am back in the region!”
Reviewed August 29, 2011

Read about it in the NY Times and had to go. They have a beautiful estate, a mix of lavender fields, olive trees, and vineyard. The self-guided tour is excellent (and free) and it's really nice to walk around the vineyard by yourself, explore with as much time as you need. The tasting room is small, the staff friendly and not pushy at all. Very good wines at a decent price. Shipping options were simple and reasonably priced. Bring a pick nick and sit under huge oak trees, enjoy the quite and peacefulness of the place.
Will be back for sure.
