“Always wonderful wines, and a pleasure to visit.”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

Once again had a wonderful experience at Dry Creek Vineyards tasting room.
The wines are great, and our tasting hostess was fabulous! We had such a good
time at our tasting, that we returned later in the day to buy a bottle to have
our picnic lunch in the nice courtyard.
Excellant!

“Dry creek, great wines tremendous staff”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

We are wine club members at Dry Creek. We always get to taste tremendous wines and we were treated like guests. This was President's weekend and the tasting room was jammed. Never the less the harried staff went out of their way to help us with all that we wanted. The winery only sale and tasting of Sommers Ranch Zinfandel made the trip more than worthwhile

“Great, locally owned, classic old-school Dry Creek Valley Winery”
Reviewed 24 January 2012

This is one of the original Dry Creek Valley wineries and it is great to see that it is still here. With all of the outside money of huge corporately owned wineries, it is refreshing to know there are still some family owned originals. Great wines, nice tasting room, friendly staff.

“No frills, friendly winery with great chenin blanc”
Reviewed 24 November 2009

I made sure to find this winery on my last visit to Healdsburg after I had had their chenin blanc at a restaurant in Berkeley. We happened to show up on the day of their unofficial holiday party, so they were pouring more wines than usual, the tasting fee was waived, and they were serving delicious snacks in the cellar! The staff were very, very friendly. We also picnicked on their lawn, which was great. The bottle prices are incredibly reasonable- I bought 4 times as many bottles than I did at any other winery!
This winery might not be as well known, but definitely make it a stop on your trip!
