Matanzas Creek Winery is a destination to enjoy the best of both rustic country charm and refined quality. Experience Bennett Valley AVA Chardonnay, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. Come to taste the unique Bennett Valley wines but stay and relax at our captivating estate grounds for the day. The spacious estate features an eclectic blend of native grasses, delicate olive trees, exotic perennials and our famed lavender fields. Tucked away from the noise but close enough for an afternoon jaunt. Bocci, picnic and self-guided tours.

The staff at Matanza is exceptional. They are helpful, fun, and upbeat. The wines are delicious, the lavender is beautiful, and the wine and cheese tasting impeccable. Don't miss a trip out to the lavender barn, it's very cool.
