Collier Falls is a family-owned winery in Healdsburg, California’s beautiful Dry Creek Valley. We make limited quantities of award-winning, estate red wines from our sustainably-farmed hillside vineyards in Sonoma County. Our wines are aromatic, complex and elegant, and our name comes from the waterfall below our Zinfandel vineyards.
Each year we strive to grow outstanding fruit and make world-class wines here in Sonoma County. We hope they express the true flavors and characteristics of this wonderful wine growing region. Our first ever vintage - a 1997 Collier Falls Zinfandel - earned a 90 rating in Wine Spectator. Our current Zinfandel release scored 92 points in Wine & Spirits and was named one of the top 10 Zins of 2012.
We farm 20 acres in the northwest corner of Dry Creek Valley at elevations exceeding 1,000 feet. These steep vineyards of rocky, clay soil produce mountain fruit with great color, character and intensity. Exactly what winemakers love to craft distinctive, hillside estate wines.
Our vineyards also sit above the fog line. So while morning fog cools the valley floor, our hillside fruit enjoys plenty of sunshine. And during the warmer parts of the day, these southeast facing vineyards get early shade, creating an ideal temperature balance for our grapes — lots of sun to develop ripe flavors and varietal characteristics, and cooler periods to help the fruit achieve balance and complexity.
