Dry Creek Valley Wines

Our wine is made from grapes grown our home estate. We are a small wine producer focused on very limited quanties of wine, producing only a few hundred cases a year.


John Koetzner owns a small vinyeard in Dry Creek Valley, and John has worked with Tim Hayes in the wine industry; Tim has been in the wine industry for forty years and John for thirty-seven years. They began making wines as home winemakers in 2000, starting in a garage and then moved to a 100 year old barn. They added a new steel building in 2015. After winning numerous awards at different amateur wine tastings over the years, they decided to finally jump into the business as winemaking professionals. Tim is Winemaker, John is Assistant Winemaker, Vineyard Manager, Cellar Rat, and more.


Currently we are focusing on our Dry Creek Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel as our two main wines, but we also have Syrah and Cabernet Franc planted. Stay tuned for our wine club and more.
