Jack & William Salerno first laid eyes on Dry Creek Valley in 1990 and never got it out of their minds. Some said they were out of their minds to open a winery in 2001 with the economy being what it was. But the success of Manzanita Creek Winery has proved that the Salerno brothers knew what they were doing.
Neoteric, self taught, innovative, visionary, extremists - that love tradition but have an aversion toward sameness – this is the virtue and vice of the Salerno brothers.
Manzanita Creek wines are never angular or boring with intense flavors that have captured the hearts of wine drinkers and wine judges. The wines of Manzanita Creek are consistently well judged and well reviewed with lots of high scores and gold medals to prove it. Try Manzanita Creek wines and see for yourself.
“I’m no rookie at tasting wine and your Zinfandels are the best
I have ever had...Period! I have never said this to any winemaker.”
