Passport to Dry Creek Valley: A Modern Tradition with Century-Old Roots

That’s the tagline, and no producer enacts its promise quite like Lytton Springs.

Lytton Springs. Where you enjoy Old Vine Wines here

While gazing out on Old Vines there

Dry Creek Valley is an extraordinary portion of the wine landscape. And this event is a tremendous opportunity to sample its wares.

And you know this.

And we know you have a great array of choices when you visit, particularly when it’s the Passport To Dry Creek Valley event. Everyone pulls out the stops; it’s an oenophiles dream. If the maxim runs that the customer is always right, then Passport ups the ante; this weekend, the customer is always ELATED.
