Myrtle Creek Vineyards and winery is a family owned and operated facility built from a passion for producing quality hand crafted wines. Our vineyards are rooted in the decomposed granite of the rolling foothills of Fallbrook. The land has a long history of farming as citrus and avocado orchards, but as water became more scarce and expensive, a more sustainable crop was needed. Wine grapes became the ideal solution. Matt had the passion for wine and Bruce has always had farming in his blood. The first vines were planted by our founder Matt Sherman and his father Bruce in August of 2011 on the grounds of the old family orchards.
On our Myrtle Creek Vineyards property we currently grow Syrah, Grenache and Sangiovese. Each season we continue to expand these plantings and add new varieties. We also lease several other small vineyards in the Fallbrook and Bonsall areas, which produce Zinfandel, Pinotage, Chardonnay, Primitivo, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Matt Sherman, our winemaker, is creating varietal and red blend wines from this locally grown fruit.
Our brand new tasting room is now open! Visit us for a wine tasting and bottle sales every Saturday and Sunday from 12 to 5 PM.
