While Sonoma County officials have resumed restrictions on indoor wine tastings, at Matanzas Creek Winery, we are fortunate to have a beautiful outdoor space to host guests, while continuing to comply with state and local guidelines for remaining open.
We are excited to continue to be open Thurs – Mon by appointment.
