Situated on a coastal range ridge and overlooking the spectacular Dry Creek Valley and Appellation of the same name, Lavender Hill Vineyards is a boutique 3 acre Primitivo/Zinfandel vineyard along with 3,000 lavender plants and a small olive orchard.  In addition to our small farm, we offer luxury accommodation in our private Guest House - "Dry Creek Villa", along with genuine wine country hospitality. 

Lavender Hill Vineyards is located on a very private and stunning south-facing hillside location, offering ample sun, rich soil and perfect climate conditions.  The property is above and adjacent to the respected and acclaimed A. Rafanelli Winery, notable for its cult-like Zinfandels and award winning Cabernets.  With our ninth grape harvest completed in 2009, we are delighted to be working with the Passalacqua Family Winery where the first Lavender Hill Vineyards-designate Primitivo was released in March 2007 and sold out within 3 months.  Every year between 120 and 175 cases of this wine are produced.  Contact the winery for current release information. 

We also sell fresh-cut lavender to the public, including a PYO (Pick Your Own) harvest.  For a very reasonable cost, you can cut as much as you desire.  Our varieties are the fragrant and popular Lavandula Intermedia "Grosso", with a small section of "Provence."  With its long wands and rich purple bracts, Grosso is sought for its strong  aromatic qualities and is often dried or distilled to produce essential oils.  PYO is available by appointment from approximately mid June through July, when the Lavender is in peak bloom.  Please contact us at info@lavenderhillvineyards.com or 707-433-8989 for PYO

About Us:

Lavender Hill Vineyards LLC is the joint vision and operation of domestic partners Bill Carney and Scott Monroe who have been residents of Healdsburg since early 1994.  Upon acquiring this 25 acre parcel in 1996, the two have transformed a beautiful, rugged hillside into a modest scale farm operation with crops going into local Sonoma county agricultural products.  Additionally, the two make the dramatic estate which they designed and built on the property - "Villa Arriba" - their home and center for entertaining visitors from around the world.  Click here for information on our unique luxury Guest Villa accommodation at Lavender Hill Vineyards.  Need a nice place to enjoy while spending a few days in San Francisco?  Check out our vacation home in the San Francisco Castro/Ashbury Heights area.
