ALL ABOUT THE WINE
If you believe less is more, Hickory Creek will likely be your favorite stop on the wine trail. Set on an idyllic landscape with few commercial markers, Hickory Creek’s stately red barn houses an intimate tasting room — a place for education and conversation with its excellent staff, and often owner/winemaker Adam McBride himself.
Here, you’re steps from production and steps from the vineyard — truly at the center of winemaking, guided by a uniquely knowledgeable team in contact with every aspect of the process. Find classic European-style wines crafted entirely by hand, along with unique varietals Adam’s become known for sourcing like Marquette Nouveau and Blaufränkisch. With production limited to 1,500 cases per year, some of the most intriguing Hickory Creek wines can only be experienced at the vineyard.
Local Tip: Having earned multiple WSET certifications, Adam is a big fan of wine education for makers, sellers, and enthusiasts alike. Follow @hickorycreekwinery for early notification of Napa Valley Wine Academy seminars held at the vineyard. We can’t imagine a better setting to level up your tasting game.
