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 lavender gardens are stunningly beautiful and tranquil to walk amongst. The wine tasting was fairly reasonable, but it seemed a bit crowded and less accommodating than smaller wineries in the area. The Grounds offered picnicking and social gatherings for those that brought their own...More

I don’t normally like sweet wines but the lychee wine was super good. They have bocce ball on their grounds which is a lot of fun. There’s also a lavender farm but it wasn’t in season. Can’t wait to return when it’s in bloom.

We went to Matanzas for the lavender, and we were not disappointed. They had plenty of lavender items to purchase and smelled divine.

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.
