We enjoyed tasting here a lot at their mountaintop tasting room. The staff were knowledgeable and helpful. The wine was very good, although a bit pricey for me. We loved the pinot noir.

Go to the tasting room an as if they have any bottles of Theresa's "Sexy Spice Bomb!" If you like a Pinot Noir with a kick, you will LOVE this! Great wine, great people!

This was our third stop on the "Westside Tour" through Pure Luxury Transportation. The wine was great as was the personnel. The patio is gorgeous! There were 8 of us ladies on an extended weekend. Loved the experience!

Views are amazing as you are looking down into the valley. Tour felt rushed and functional and left on our own when wine tasting. Wines are great but would have preferred more information on them.

We have been wine club members for several years now. Our first visit here was on my 40th birthday from a recommendation from a wine steward at a local Oregon grocery store. Now we have been back several times. Our last trip was to the Harvest Dinner earlier this month. We enjoyed the wine, food and meeting the staff. Everyone... More

We enjoy going to Gary Farrell as the views there are quite nice from the winery tasting room. Nice views of the redwoods. Good wine. Gary sold the winery years ago - but the winery continues to use his name - a testament to a fine wine maker.

My friend Jack and I visited Gary Farrell Winery this past Friday and were royally entertained by Events Manager Diana Brown, who really could NOT have been more cordial, friendly, and helpful! Diana led us though the various vintages, describing both the wine and the history of the place in a true fun-loving way; my buddy and I even ended... More

We were a little early to our destination and my boyfriend said he had wanted to stop at Gary Farrell and had never had the chance. Since we were headed that way, we called and were told to come by. What a lovely place with fabulous views, outdoor seating or inside. We remained inside and had a lovely explanation and... More

One reason why I tend to go wine tasting in this area as opposed to Napa is to avoid the tour buses full of people who just want to get smashed and could care less about the wine, or having an enjoyable wine tasting experience. Unfortunately, this winery is full of those people. If you love, Pinot Noir, which I... More
