Not the typical tasting room, a visit to Nalle offers you a unique tasting experience. If you’ve discovered Nalle, you’re probably deep into your path as a wine lover and enjoy winery hidden gems.
At Nalle, we let the wine tell the story and you’ll get a taste of Dry Creek Valley done the Nalle way: family made, moderate alcohol, bright and true to the ground we plant on for over 100 years. During your visit, you’ll sip our current releases, so what’s poured may vary. Our premium, Dry Creek Valley wines are hard to find anywhere else. “Our flavor is unique, it’s the essence of Dry Creek and the Nalle style.” — Andrew Nalle, Winemaker
Our tasting area is behind our cellar, with tables and chairs surrounded by our family-owned vineyards. Some may call it rustic; others refer to it as authentic. For us, this is who we are. As you find your spot on the patio, someone from the family will greet you and may also be pouring the wines for you. This is your chance to get to know us and our wines in a quiet, more intimate setting.
As you sip Nalle wines, you can also drink in the view of our almost century-old Zinfandel vines, which are dry-farmed and part of the Historic Vineyard Society.
Living Roof Cellar – Naturally Cool Since 1984
What’s a living roof and why would we have a living roof cellar?
When our founder Doug Nalle started the winery, he wanted an ecologically and environmentally friendly way to keep the winery cellar cool. Building a cave wasn’t in the budget, so he did some research and learned how to naturally keep a building cool.
A concrete arch was constructed, and then covered with three to six feet of soil and planted with rosemary to keep the soil from eroding. This living roof cellar keeps the building cool without using energy. A sustainable solution long before folks were focused on sustainability. So we really have been naturally cool for a long time!
Since the tasting area is at one end of the cellar, visitors get an up-close view of this unique building with a living roof.
For the full story and photos, we recommend a visit to Living Roof Cellar.
