Dry Creek Valley Holiday Gift Guide
There’s more to Dry Creek Valley than its incredible old vine zinfandel. Whether you’re a Sonoma County local or planning a pre-holiday visit to the region, we’ve got your holiday shopping covered. Here are some amazing gifts to compliment your favorite bottles:
DaVero Farms “Just Add Chicken” Gift Basket
DaVero Farms makes a fantastic lineup of jams, vinegars, olive oil, and more. The Meyer Lemon Curd is a delicious breakfast treat to spread on toast or mix into your Greek yogurt for an extra kick. You’ll find gifts of all sizes, from $12 jams and preserves to $30 spa sets which include three olive-oil based soaps to a $214 “Just Add Chicken” basket, which includes everything you need for a gourmet dinner, from seasoning rub to perfectly-paired wines.
Dry Creek Olive Company Gourmet Sampler
Trattore Farms and Dry Creek Olive Company sell gift sets with sample-sized bottles of premium olive oil and vinegars. With delightful salad-friendly flavors like Pomegranate Vinegar and Valencia Orange Olive Oil, these sets will delight any foodie on your list. The Three Orchards Olive Oil blend lists all olive varieties used. It comes as no surprise that it took home Double Gold at the Sonoma County Harvest Fair!
Collier Falls Winery makes irresistible artisan wine-infused chocolate sauces. Choose from Cabernet or Zinfandel. Pour over ice cream or any dessert, if you can restrain yourself from drinking straight from the bottle!
Quivira Vineyard Wildflower Honey
As one of many conservation efforts the winery makes, Quivira Vineyards and Winery raises its own honey bees to help pollinate their vineyards. Quivira’s vineyard wildflower honey sold in 10 ounce jars for $12 each is a sweet bonus.
Tomte ornaments at West Wines
Tomte felt ornaments are a staple Christmas tradition in Sweden. During December, you can purchase these darling handcrafted imports from the tasting room at Swedish-owned West Wines.
