Slip away from the shops of downtown Healdsburg and emerge in a new world only a few miles away. At Michel-Schlumberger Wine Estate, the distinctive terrain and subtle microclimates determine the best expressions of our hand-crafted wines. Every glass of our 100% estate-produced wine has a story to tell that’s unique to each person tasting it. Our limited-releases are works of discovery, our winemaker’s journey to draw out the prime, peerless essence of each varietal we grow. The process occurs in concert with passionate culinary ideals so that each wine has awaiting foods and flavors to both compliment and be complimented by.
Our Spanish mission-style estate is as welcoming to first-time visitors as it is comfortably familiar to old friends. The smooth, clean lines of traditional stucco wrap cozily around timber framing and cast iron accents. There is no better place to enjoy your favorite Cabernet Franc or Pinot Noir than our grand courtyard. You’ll be lulled to blissful contentment beside the quiet chatter of the reflecting pool, and the merriment of fellow visitors.
You can also cozy up on our beautiful terrace overlooking the swooping expanse of the vineyard. Take your tasting experience to the next level with a Cheese and Charcuterie platter or a picnic lunch paired expertly with your tasting flight.
Schedule a Tour or Stay the Night
If you’re feeling more inclined to explore, you can take a tour of our self-sustaining, state-of-the-art estate and vineyards. Schedule The Grand Tour with friends and see everything: Start with an exhilarating motorized survey of the remarkably diverse landscape and vineyards, take an educational path through the cellar, and finish with a private wine and barrel tasting. Don’t want the day to end? Book a night in our Luxury Guest Suite and experience sunrise over the rolling hillsides of Dry Creek Valley.
Respecting our Past and Looking Towards our Future
Since the first vines were planted in 1979 it was our hope to create something that lasts generations. Our commitment to sustainability was the motivation behind the construction of Dry Creek Valley’s largest solar energy generating system. It’s that system which allows us to create more energy than we use, putting clean power back into the grid for everyone. The only concern you’ll have when you walk between the rows of vines is keeping the glass in your hand balanced.
