FRITZ UNDERGROUND WINERY
Built into the side of a picturesque hill atop the northernmost region of the famed Dry Creek Valley, the Fritz Winery was a visionary wonder when it was designed and built in the 1970s. By taking advantage of the cooler subterranean temperatures, Fritz wines have never needed carbon-heavy devices common to most modern wine production.
That underground advantage, combined with a natural spring to supply simple irrigation, redwood groves to provide unique micro-climates, and a soil ideal for prized planting year after year, give Fritz an unrivaled caliber of wine. Call them now and set up your own personal Underground Tour, complete with tasting.
Or for a really unique experience, make an appointment to blend your own wine with award winning winemaker Brad Longton. During the experience you will blend, bottle and cork your very own Pinot Noir, and take home your treasure when you are finished!
