Story

It all began in Southern California. Our Great Grandfather was among a wave of German immigrants to settle in Oceanside where the family first farmed in California at the turn of the century.

In 1952, the Dreyer Family laid roots in the heart of California’s agricultural mecca, the Central Valley. Spurred by the remarkable growth of wine consumption in the 1970’s the family focused on cultivating grapes and making fine wine. Continuing northward the family eventually settled on a small vineyard ranch in Woodside and in Glen Ellen in the Sonoma Valley.

The youngest son, Jonathan Dreyer, was given the reigns to continue to grow the family business. To compliment the limited yields from their home Ranch, Jonathan continued north to Sonoma to find the best possible fruit. Upon partnering with well-regarded vintners, the Dreyer-Sonoma label was born.

Today, we continue to cultivate our relationships with the finest wine growers, picking the best Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay for Dreyer Sonoma wines.

Wines of Distinction

Our Cabernet is harvested in Alexander Valley where yields are both abundant and richly concentrated. Mendocino’s warms days and cool nights allow grapes to ripen slowly forming balanced acidity making it a model companion in our Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon. The resulting wine is layered with intense flavors and approachable tannins making it a perfect addition to your favorite meal.

Chardonnay has been a staple of the Dreyer portfolio since its first introduction in 1991.  Each year we seek out the finest fruit from our Sonoma County vineyard partners, and in 2014 we found the best in Los Carneros, the most southern appellation in Sonoma County.   The Carneros region is defined by its cool afternoon winds which help to keep acidity in balance during the warm ripening months of summer creating a superb wine which pairs with a variety of flavors.
