Raymond Burr Vineyards
In 1986, some 30 years after the hit television show PERRY MASON made Raymond Burr a household name, he decided to follow another passion and planted the small Dry Creek Valley estate that bears his name with his favorite wine grape, Cabernet Sauvignon.
Much of the fourteen acre vineyard is on a steeply terraced hillside with very well drained soil. Although the Dry Creek Valley is a warm growing region, this south/east facing benchland is bathed in shade late in day and the cool breeze from the ocean keeps the temperature low at night. The combination allows the grapes to mature at a steady pace.
The intimate bungalow-style tasting room is filled with memorabilia from Raymond Burr's acting career, notably his Emmy awards and 14 vintage issues of TV Guide with his photo on the cover. The space is cozy, so unless the weather is dismal, visitors are able to take their glasses onto the patio, where they can be served in the shade of an ancient oak tree and take in the sweeping vistas sitting at rustic picnic tables.
ALL TASTINGS ARE COMPLIMENTARY, OUR WINES ARE 100% ESTATE GROWN
Open 11 to 5 Thursday thru Monday. Closed Tues. & Weds.
