Description:

Open By Appointment Only. In the heart of the beautiful Russian River...

Open By Appointment Only. In the heart of the beautiful Russian River Valley, Gary Farrell Vineyards & Winery offers a proud 33-year winemaking history and a unique sense of place. Perched atop a ridge along winding Westside Road, the winery offers a spectacular view of the sweeping valley below. Gary Farrell Winery benefits immeasurably from its long-term relationships with many of the Russian River Valley's most celebrated and sought-after vineyards including Rochioli, Allen, and Hallberg to name a few. Gary Farrell Winery helped put Russian River Valley Pinot Noir and Chardonnay on the world stage, and the hallmark Gary Farrell wine style remains one of balance, elegance, texture and sense of place. Today these acclaimed wines can be enjoyed on our intimate outdoor terrace and the view from our winery completes the picture.

Really enjoyed the staff, the great wines, and the scenery. The Pinots are very good, but you need to try the chards also!

Exceptional wines, especially the Pinots- so good we joined the club! Wine tasting was top notch even in the "glamping cottage" during construction this winter. Warm, personalized, not at all rushed, and the pourer was informative and very friendly! Best wine tasting of our trip to Sonoma County.

Walk through of wine making facilities followed by small group tasting experience. This was an unhurried visit with time for questions/answers by knowledgeable hosts. The wines are excellent.

We visited while the winery was being renovated. However, we were taken to finely appointed tents and provided a tour that was informative and tailored to us.

We had a great tasting. They are redoing their main tasting room, so we were outside in nice upscale tents tasting great Pinot's. And of course now members awaiting our shipment

I had last visited this winery ten years ago, when Gary Farrell was still in charge and making remarkable pinot noir. When coming back recently with a friend, I did not realize that the winery had changed hands several times over the years. It's now owned by Vincraft. The quality of the wine has declined, and the only thing remarkable... More

It is a beautiful winery, the staff is pleasant and knowledgeable. The specific tasting that we had was billed as a terrior tasting but in reality it was a broad mix of wines, nothing exceptionally good in the lot but then again nothing bad. We enjoyed it but expected a more focused set of wines that really showed the affect... More

We were there after the main tasting room had been closed for renovations and we were in glamping cabins. RuthAnne was fantastic and easy to talk to. The cabins were really nicely done. Would recommend!
