Great wines all around. It's not cheap. Not enough whites for my taste. Only one at present. Big, bold reds. I am a regular, and a wine club member.

I visited this winery during a week long trip to Sonoma with my family (4 couples). We enjoyed this winery; my parents even joined their wine club. Their wines were excellent! Our tasting room pourer was very friendly and gave us many suggestions for other wineries to visit as well as coupons and a map of wine country. We had... More

I could sit outside on the picnic tables overlooking the gardens for hours. I felt like I was in a movie. If you want small, come here!

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.
