By know Dave and the family for most of my life, I know is a real working vineyard and winery. Dave's family has been working the land for 60 plus years and understands what make good wine. You must visit.

The Rafanelli's have a nice place; good for photo ops. They are knowledgeable, hospitable, and hardworking. This is IMHO the real deal.

I was fortunate enough that a friend introduced me to this reservation/appointment only winery. They are family run, and I always feel special, like a VIP, insider--whenever I go here. No fees to taste--three wines usually... but all high quality and priced amazingly low ($30s-110, excellent for the quality). The zins are the standouts. Beautiful grounds you can bring a picnic too. We usually start our tastings here and then go around Healdsburg/Dry Creek. So this literally is our centerpiece of wine tasting each time we're on that side (of 101).

This is a small family owned and operated winery and an appointment is needed. We were able to see the grapes in the steel vat waiting to be "crushed" They have excellent Zin's and are very friendly.
