About Us

Welcome to Mill Creek Vineyards and Winery. We are a small, family owned and operated winery located in the southern end of the Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County. Three generations of the Kreck family have been involved in the winemaking process from the vineyards to the cellar and out into the marketplace. We invite you to try our award winning wines and experience a taste of why we have made this area our home.

Mill Creek wines have won many of the most prestigious awards possible including the Sonoma County Harvest Fair's coveted Sweepstakes Award, the California State Fair's Best Wine in the State award, and Orange County Fair's Four Star Gold as well as dozens of Best of Class awards and hundreds of Gold medals.

Conceived in 1965 when the family first planted grapes, the winery was not actually born until nine years later with the first production of Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. Two years later we completed transforming an existing farming structure into a state of the art winery. In 1982, Mill Creek built its tasting room modeled after one of the many water powered saw mills that were popular in the area around the turn of the 20th century.

Several members of the Kreck family currently work on the Mill Creek property. Current owners, Bill and Yvonne Kreck are involved in many areas of the production of Mill Creek's world-class wines, from growing to bottling to selling. Their middle son, Jeremy Kreck, is now both winemaker and vineyard manager.

On this single property, you can visit a place that completes the entire process of growing grapes through selling wine. Unlike some properties where most, or all, of the fruit is purchased, or the wine is made off-site, Mill Creek is the complete package where one can experience the creation of excellent varietal wines from start to finish.
