Outstanding location, outstanding vistas, outstanding wine, top notch staff. Mid-week is the time to go with zero crowds. The trip back down the mountain is a bonus

Spectacular views of the Russian River Valley! Great wines! Fabulous outdoor seating! Call for reservations! DIL is a member, so we had no problem. However, I do not believe you can just walk in without a reservation. Just really beautiful! Worth the time and effort!

The wine and hospitality experienced at the winery were exceptional. From the moment we walked into the tasting room , Lisa was friendly and knowledgeable about the wine and the history of the winery. My wife and I were with two other couples and everyone commented about how much fun we had at the winery. Lisa was wonderful. The most... More

We visited Gary Farrell Winery one afternoon recently. Great scenery. But the over all experience was less than expected. We had an appointment so they were ready for us. But it helps to have foods (for purchase) to pair with the wine. The only food they had was bacon flavored popcorn. Service was just so-so, even though we were the... More

We had the tour and tasting on the terrace and it was amazing! Luckily our tour was small because we did the first one of the day and Tara was fantastic. She told us all kinds of interesting facts and was open to any questions. She gave us time to our selves during the tasting, which was amazing and more... More

We went to Gary Farrell for wine tasting on Easter afternoon as it was one of the wineries that was open. It is also a favorite of ours. We enjoyed tasting chardonnay and their very good pinot noir wine. They do a good job of describing where the grapes come from and show you on a map where the grapes... More

Had a fabulous wine tasting experience and tour of their facility. Beautiful setting as well. We went with friends from San Diego and they also enjoyed the wine. Very informative tour guide.

I saw the rude review and had to comment. My wife and I stopped by around 2-3 on a weekday in June last year. I had a feeling this might not be a positive experience when I started seeing signs that indicated you were only allowed on the Terrace as long as you had purchased the Terrace tasting. Of course...
