Great site with a killer view. Nice wines and tiger tabby to pet. $15 tasting fee okay but always a negative.

My friends,family and I had a fantastic time. Wine was wonderful and Zack was so friendly and informative. It was a beautiful day and the views from the terrace were stunning. Thanks to Diana, too! She's a great representative for Gary Farrell!

Gary Farrell Winery is a beautiful place. Amazing hilltop view of the Russian River Valley from the inside tasting room, or the outdoor patio. Most importantly, the wine was really good. Would definitely go back next time I'm in the area.

Gary Farrell Winery is a lovely facility on a hilltop. The building is new, and the views stunning. The wines are good, but the tasting fee is a bit pricey.

I visit Sonoma every year with a group of friends and this was one of our more disappointing tasting experiences. We made a reservation for a group of 7 but were greeted by incredibly rude and aloof servers. The manager kindly offered to comp the tastings but we left after the second glass. This was unlike any experience I've had... More

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!
