The vineyard is in a pretty old farmhouse with picnic space (you must first ask permission to picnic). The wines were great, however the staff seemed distant and not at all interested in answering my questions about their wine. There was olive oil and bread available for sale, but we did not purchase any.

You'd never know what is down that dusty unpaved road unless you venture out. At the end is a nice complex for the Preston Vineyards that produce a good range of white and red varietals (all estate). We especially enjoyed the Barbera wine. Great picnic grounds - with lots of tables - and if you can go there during the... More

Staff here are perfunctory - no real effort to engage the customer. The wines offered for tasting did not impress us. They were drinkable, I'll give them that. They also offer organic olive oil for tasting. We passed. You can picnic on these pretty grounds - with permission. Not sure what the point of returning here would be.

You will be impressed by the outstanding olive oils and fresh bread. Cheese is also available for purchase. We left after waiting more than 10 minutes to be acknowledged by a staff member. Never got to purchase a tasting of wine. The staff really does need to be trained in customer service. No one will ever know how the wine... More

Okay. I visited this tasting room simply because my dog is also named "Preston." However, I really loved the place. I liked the 2011 Mourvedre the best. Odd, since this is usually used only as a mix, but this had a deep, fruity complexity. The olive oil is FANTASTIC. Bought a couple bottles of this. Great picnic area and tasting... More

We had high hopes for this winery as we'd heard about the approach they use - biodynamic and organic farming. The layout of the estate feels like a small step back in time to something familiar. The picnic tables outside, the farmhouse style buildings, the mixed agriculture with the vineyard, all makes you feel good about coming here. The Challenge...... More

We didn't get to spend a lot time at the winery because we were alerted to Preston while at another winery. We had but 15 minutes to do a quick tasting before they closed. We enjoyed the peaceful setting and the scenic drive to get there and happy that we made the trip. The staff was friendly and the wine... More

Bring a picnic and enjoy the gardens, organic farm, and especially the wine! A fun place to check out. We go whenever we're in Healdsburg, and it just keeps getting better. They now have a little farm store selling fresh eggs and produce. Try the olives, too. Have fun!

Preston is a quaint, country winery that is WAY off the beaten path. While the serene grounds are great for picnics, and the bread and olive oil are delicious, the wine was just not very good. Sadly, we couldn't find one wine that we liked here... They're on the pricey side, too Our pourer was friendly enough, but even though... More
