Solterra Owner and Winemaker Chris Van Alyea (on premise daily after 4 pm for impromptu tastings) grew up in Sonoma County and has been making wine for the last 14 years from grapes sourced from Sonoma county, Lake County, Paso Robles, San Diego County, and Baja Mexico. The wines have garnered Golds and Best of Class at top competitions in California. Chris, his wife Audrey and the Solterra staff look forward to your visit. Cheers!<br />We can accommodate large private events in our Barrel Room. Inquires email debbie@solterrawinery.com

We are committed to buying sustainable fish, meats, cheese and produce, as well as purchasing local and organic whenever possible.<br />We use the freshest, highest quality products we can get our hands on - its our intention to showcase the immense bounty of this wonderful area that we live in. Northern California is chalkful of farms, vineyards, oceans, ranches that are like nowhere else! We've chosen to support local farmers -- as well as local craft brewers and feature wines from California exclusively. We have such a rich wealth of natural resources here in California, we want to celebrate that. We hope that you share our vision and come visit soon. Dine with us and you'll be dining with other like minded folks in your community.<br />Cheers!<br />- Holly & John<br />Owners, Dry Creek Grill

"With the exception of totally soggy fries to go with our delicious pork sandwich all the food was really tasty (cornbread, green chili, two salads, brisket). But the service, in all counts, was painfully slow (but nice and friendly). No explanation was offered until we asked after an hour. Food was promised within 5 and came in about 10.
So while it was good and has a nice atmosphere it is pretty loud (for those of us in our 50's). We'd go again but not on a weekend. Hoping that service was a fluke."

"Yummm, fried avocado! We'd never heard of it before and the waitress said it was really popular, we could see why, it was delicious (and spicy!). All the bottles of wine were half off for Happy Hour so that was sweet. We had sushi, flatbread, nachos, all four of us loved everything!"
