Charles Creek Vineyard
Winemaker Kerry Damskey, a University of California at Davis graduate and a veteran winemaker for three decades, crafts a wide menu of white and red wines including Pinot Noir. Vineyard sources are spread across ten sites in both Sonoma and Napa counties.
Bill and Gerry Brinton founded Charles Creek Vineyard in 2002. Bill Brinton is a direct descendant of John Deere. His direct family was at the helm of Deere until its recent transition to a public company. Charles Creek is named after Bill's son, Charley, and his grandfather, Charles Deere Wiman.
The premier release of a Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir came from the 2007 vintage. It is a blend of 87% Pinot Noir and 13% Pinot Meunier.
The tasting room is located across the street from the Plaza in Sonoma at 483 First Street West and is open every day.
