This was our favorite winery of the trip. The view is fantastic, the wine was delicious, and the staff were all very helpful. We even joined the wine club at this one.

A dear friend suggested this winery a few years back. We were taken with it then, both for the excellent wines and the ambiance of winery itself. That particular day, an event was in progress when we arrived and the tasting room was offering finger foods for patrons. It was a rainy day in late October, I recall, and the... More

Great setting with a nice picnic area. No crowds (Monday after Thanksgiving). Bought a few bottles of the Cooney Vineyard Cab. (bottle purchase waives tasting fee). Very nice. I don't think they sell through stores, only wine club and maybe some restaurants. Host gave us some recommendations for other vineyards in the area.

We were so lucky to schedule our private tasting on the day when chardonnay grapes were being delivered to the crush pad. We got to taste grapes before they were crushed and drank the juice as the crushing was taking place. Better yet was the taste of different varietals we were able to pick from the vines as Mark walked... More

Great wines all around, We brought sandwiches and had a glass of wine on one of the picnic tables taking in the views while Duchess the golden Lab relaxed... More

My husband and I went to 7 wineries while staying in Healdsburg and this was tied for our favorite for the combination of the wine, grounds, and personnel (our other winner was Truett Hurst). We tried to visit an array of larger and smaller wineries while on our trip and found we preferred the more personable and less commercial estates.... More

We have been buying from Dutcher Crossing for a couple of years now and have several neighbors who now buy as well. This was my first trip to the winery and the visit confirms why we like their wines so much. The staff is friendly and willing to take the time to "show and tell". We felt privileged to tour... More
