Dry Creek Valley is a premium winegrowing region in northern Sonoma County, California. World renowned for its Zinfandel, blocks of old-vines mark the area, many having survived prohibition when many vines were removed. You won’t find any traffic lights in Dry Creek Valley, but you will find fertile soil and ideal growing conditions.
Keep it casual with gourmet burgers topped with roasted tomatoes, red peppers and caramelized onions or take it up a notch with well-marbled grilled rib steak and sauteed mushrooms.

Everything looks pretty good so far, but the instructions were not specific to this particular kit. Close but there are a couple of items that were not exact for this kit. For instance, instructions mention oak cubes. There are no oak cubes as the oak is all chips. And you have to read the "fine" print on the back of the bourbon barrel chips to see that you hold one bag back for another step..
Have great hopes for this kit. Also, it tells you to use a 4 cup container for the grape skins - I pulled out my 8 cup container and was glad I did - 4 cup would have overflowed!
