Welcome to Nalle
Nalle (pronounced with a silent ‘e’) is one of the oldest wineries in Dry Creek Valley and has been family owned and operated since 1984 when it was established by Doug and Lee Nalle. Today their son Andrew is head winemaker and proprietor with his wife April and two young children by his side.
The estate is located two miles from Healdsburg in Sonoma County on land the family has sustainably farmed for five generations. Andrew continues Doug’s dedication to creating focused, fruit-forward wines in the old-school California style: moderate in alcohol, balanced, food friendly, and built to age.
Small lots of old vine, dry-farmed, and estate grown wines including Zinfandel, Cabernet, and Pinot Noir are produced in the above-ground cave winery, kept cool year-round by a living roof of rosemary. All tastings are offered in the cellar and you will almost always find one of the Nalles’ behind the tasting bar.
“This may be one of the best hidden gems in all of Dry Creek. Though it’s hardly a kept secret – Nalle is long known for being one of the best Zinfandel makers in California.”
