We are not usually interested in joining wine clubs when we visit Sonoma and Napa, however Dutcher made an impression on us with the great wines (both taste and value), the beautiful grounds and attentive/knowledgeable staff. We spent almost 2 hours with the staff talking through the wines and back story of Dutcher Crossing. Miranda was wonderful in the tasting... More

Beautiful setting and known for their very good Petite Sirah. They also have a good Zinfandel. If you haven't tried it, I highly recommend it. Hostess was friendly and waived the fee when we bought a bottle We also joined the club. Can't wait to get our first case!

Dutcher Crossing is an immaculate winery, with a spectacular view of the valley framed by the building's architecture. We are club members and enjoyed a tasting of the upcoming shipment, all strong wines. The new Rhone blend red, Kupferschmid, really stood out. It's not the usual Dry Creek red (which mostly are Zins), softer and rounder, but a great addition... More

We met up with a few friends who were visiting from Southern California. It was a Tuesday morning when we visited. We each had one or two tastes and then we were basically ignored. There were three people working behind the bar and they all seemed to disappear in different directions. One person came back behind the bar, but ignored... More

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
