“Dry Creek....anything but dry.”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

What an absolutely wonderful experience. Great people, great service, great fun and yes, Great Wine. A must visit when in Sonoma. The staff are very knowledgeable and patient. Willing to take the time to teach you about each wine you are sampling. My husband and I truly enjoyed our impromptu visit to Dry Creek, so much so, that we are now members of the wine club. If you are in the area, you should make sure to visit Dry Creek, You will not be dissapointed.

“The way wine was intended to be enjoyed!”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

Excellent taste and great variety. They take great pride in their products and one can see it and taste it. Incredible spot for lunch, stop by the general store for your favorite sandwich and enjoy it at the picnic tables at Dry Creek...

“Great time at Dry Creek Vineyards”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

Four of us visited Dry Creek and had a great time with the tasting and just talking with their staff (especially John). They were very courteous, and the wines were great - consequently, they got some new members to their wine club!

Great experience, and we strongly recommend it to our friends.

“Everything was fantastic!”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

We searched the internet the day before we arrived in Healdsburg, and thought the Dry Creek Vineyard looked promising. We reserved a spot for the 11 AM tour while we were still in Sacramento, and thought we'd be just fine. So of course we had a late start in the morning, had no cell phone service, and missed our tour. When we finally arrived, the staff was very kind and booked us into the next one. The tour covered everything, inside and outside. Our guide, Karen, did a wonderful job telling the history of Dry Creek and describing the way rootstock and vines are chosen and tended through the growing season, and answered endless questions from our every member of our small group. She gave generous opportunities to compare various wines. At the end, we were sold, and joined the Zin Lovers Club. Now I'm looking forward to having lovely wine show up at home here, back in our everyday lives. I can't wait to go back!
