“Dry Creek Vineyard Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2014

Some of the best wines. We have been wine club members at many different vineyards in the past. This is now our only clubs membership which tells you how good we think their wines are. Even though loving a wine is a very individual taste I find their wines to be universally enjoyable from wine snob to a novice. A great place to bring out of town visitors as almost everyone can find something they really enjoy.

They also have a great picnic area and since we love to ride our bike in this area we build our rides around ending here for a some wine and lunch.

“Great everything at Dry Creek Vineyard”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2014

The wines are great, the staff is friendly and engaging (so different after going to places where the hosts poor wine and speak like a robot, this one has dark fruit and pepper and low sugar) they listen too. No need to worry if you don't know wines they will help or just let you Enjoy. The grounds are so nice. They have a small selection of cheeses and meats - buy a bottle and sit at one of the many tables under the trees and ENJOY !! can not wait to go back

“Dry Creek Vineyard is the Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

This time I visited Dry Creek Vineyard to pick up several cases of wine to serve at our office Christmas party and to use as client holiday gifts. Selina worked with me on the phone the day before to pick out just the right wines, and when I arrived the next day, voila! Everything was boxed and organized exactly as I ordered.

I really appreciate the personal attention and fine wines of Dry Creek Vineyard. By the way, I received rave reviews from our staff on the wine we served at our Christmas party!

“Sterling improvement in the quality of your wines.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

I was so impressed with your wines that my wife and I decided to become wine club members.
Every wine we tasted was superb, excellent quality compared to other high end wineries who specialize in Zins.
Also the location of the winery is ideal , perfect to bring the family up and have a great lunch. The winery has picnic tables and rest rooms. The Deli down the street provides great amenities for a superb lunch and why not and open a nice bottle of the Dry Creek old vine Zin to go with lunch.
