Nalle (pronounced with a silent 'e') is one of the oldest wineries in Dry Creek Valley and has been family owned and operated since it was established in 1984 by Doug and Lee Nalle. Today their son Andrew is the head winemaker and proprietor. The estate is located two miles from Healdsburg in Sonoma County on land the family has farmed for five generations. Andrew continues Doug's dedication to creating focused, fruit-forward wines in the old-school California style: balanced, food friendly, and built to age.
Small lots of old vine, dry-farmed, and estate wines including Zinfandel, Cabernet, and Pinot Noir are produced in the above-ground-cave cellar, kept cool year-round by a living roof of rosemary. Tastings are offered right in the middle of the winery and usually you will find one of us behind the tasting bar ready to talk all things wine, so come say hi!
