Lost Canyon Winery

Lost canyon winery is one of the top wineries in the dry creek valley American viticulture area. Originally started in 1978 it has become the top wine gift choice because of the outstanding quality of its wines. Total production is a mere 2500 cases a wine each and every year with a clear focus on wine made in the 300 to 500 case range. Lost canyon has an interesting back story including its beginnings as a wine made in the home of partners jack states and Randy Keyworth. Quality levels have been consistently above average if not excellent in most years. One of our favorite wines is there pinot noir which has stayed as a balanced wine despite being grown in an area known for much higher temperatures than you might expect pinot noir to grow well in. While much of a fruit is estate grown lost canyon also works with growers in nearby areas including the Russian River Valley Carneros in other parts of Sonoma.
