We have allocation for a lot of great wines in the area, but thought we'd stop by Gary F. winery since it had been a while and we remembered the great view. Went inside the bar area and we where the only one's there. The first question we were asked is if we had an appt. Really? Most winery's would... More

We had the cheese and wine pairing. The cheeses were great. The wines were good as well - but we had better Pinot's later in the day at Small Vines and William Selym. Our server was nice - but should have talked a lot less about what she taste in each wine (not helpful) and we had a written explanation.... More

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
