Veteran Winemaker Nick Goldschmidt has joined The Pour House collective in Dry Creek Valley, CA
Healdsburg, CA, – Goldschmidt Vineyards opened its first-ever tasting room on June 13, 2020 at The Pour House, a collective of three family-run wineries, located in the heart of Dry Creek Valley, CA. The tasting space, formerly known as Family Wineries of Dry Creek Valley, has refreshed its interior décor and lineup of wines to now include Goldschmidt Vineyards and its domestic portfolio of labels including: Singing Tree Chardonnay, Fog’s Edge Chardonnay, Gracepoint Zinfandel, The Conspirator Red Blend, Chelsea Goldschmidt Merlot and Katherine Goldschmidt Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The collective is open daily from 10:30am to 4:30pm for consumer tastings, with Goldschmidt Vineyards Goldmark Wine Club members welcomed for complimentary tastings. Wholesale/trade tastings are hosted by-appointment. The idyllic location overlooking Dry Creek Valley is the destination for an exceptional wine education experience hosted by The Pour House collective team, with future winemaker tasting seminars to be led by Nick Goldschmidt. Reservations are requested in order to safely monitor and accommodate each guest. Tastings are $10.00 per person for four (4) wines; tasting fee is refundable with a bottle purchase.

“Since our first release of Forefathers back in 1988, we’ve never had the opportunity to present our wines to the public. We finally decided to showcase not only the wines you have come to know us for, but also the very small parcel lots in the 100-200 case range. With the purchase of more land, we now have the ability to offer bottlings which are super hard to make from these very specific micro terroirs. We would love to welcome you at The Pour House in Dry Creek to sample them.” —Nick Goldschmidt, Winemaker/Owner, Goldschmidt Vineyards
