Welcome to Dry Creek Vineyards, Worldwide Farmers Exchange Host Winery
Located in Healdsburg, Calif., Dry Creek Vineyards is one of the few remaining family-owned wineries in California. With more than 40 years of grape growing and winemaking experience, the company produces what Wine Enthusiast Magazine characterizes as “outstanding wines,” and is specifically known for its excellent Sauvignon blanc, Chenin blanc, and Zinfandel varieties.
The company has also been a Worldwide Farmers Exchange wine program host for over ten years, accepting two trainees per year into their winemaking internship program.
A Day in the Life of a Dry Creek Trainee
Dry Creek trainees enjoy onsite housing and typically start their internship as cellar hands, unless they have more specialized skills. Trainees are involved in all aspects of winemaking and can be found in the cellar, the tasting room, and everywhere in between. Dry Creek Vineyards enjoys playing to the strengths of its interns and works collaboratively with trainees to design a training plan that leverages these strengths.
