About Us

About Drytown CellarsDrytown Cellars is not an “unfortunate” name for a winery! —It’s toponymous! Drytown was never “dry,” but has a long history of people determined to enjoy life while following their dreams. One of the largest towns in the foothills during California’s Gold Rush, Drytown had hotels and saloons to accommodate thousands of 49ers.

Today, it’s much smaller, but probably more hospitable. And yesterday’s wine cannot compare to what visitors find here today. Delicious, bold reds; bright, fruity whites.

Owner and winemaker Allen Kreutzer produces the very best wines from Amador County and Sierra Foothill fruit—zesty zinfandels, bold barberas, smooth syrahs, and savory sauvignon blancs, to name just a few.

Our modern facility is built on the old Vaira Ranch site, on historic State Highway 49, complete with the original barn and ranch home. Come enjoy the bucolic view, taste the delicious wines, and visit with us!

Stop by! You can ring the bell to get our attention if we’re not in the tasting room–we’re always glad to see visitors. And we’re always open every day from 11AM ’till 5PM.
