This was one of our most enjoyable wine tasting experiences in the Sonoma Valley. The wines were really good; we purchased the Fume Blanc and Zinfandel, both reasonably priced. And the staff at the wine tasting was outstanding. We had the Visa Signature free tasting program and they had no problem honoring it. I wish we would have had time... More

Nice picnic area, dog friendly and an assortment of well priced enjoyable wines. Joined the wine club and expect to enjoy some of their member benefits.

This was our first stop on a tour of Healdsburg wineries, and at the end we wished we'd spent the entire day with Dry Creek. The entire staff is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable - no superiority complexes here. We stopped by again the next time we were in the area. I joined the wine club and ordered two cases of...

Friendly staff, great wine at affordable prices. Love that we could bring our lunch and enjoy it with a great bottle of wine.

Thanks for your great review. Our wines tend to have lower alcohol & pleasant acidity, which makes them extremely food friendly. So a picnic at Dry Creek Vineyard with Dry Creek Vineyard wines makes perfect sense! More

Our usual routine for visiting Dry Creek Winery is to pick up a couple of tasty sandwiches in Healdsburg, drive out to Dry Creek, select a bottle of something very nice, the only drawback is there are so many to choose from, and have a leisurely picnic under the trees in the beautiful front yard. The flower borders always look... More

Well I wish we could stay open 24x7, but alas, not all things are possible. I love your advice about visiting other wineries first because once you visit Dry Creek Vineyard, you won't want to leave! More

I visited this winery with my family during a week long visit to Sonoma County. This winery has beautiful grounds which we enjoyed sitting out and enjoying the sun in. Their wines were good. Prices were reasonable. The tasting room staff were not overly friendly, a little stand offish at times. This was my second visit to this winery; I... More

Thanks for your review. I apologize that our tasting room staff was not overly friendly. I'm surprised to hear this, as we normally receive feedback that our tasting room staff is extremely friendly and warm. We hope you come back soon to see our tasting room staff at their best. More

My husband and I just opened a bottle of Dry Creek's 2011 Beeson Ranch Zinfandel from our latest wine club shipment... "Wow!" is just about the best word for it. The Dry Creek staff recommended it as a strong pairing with a steak like top sirloin. Its fruit forward taste is hinted at by your first pouring as you smell... More

Bill's tour was informative, and the afternoon my wife and I spent here tasting wines with our adult daughters was a highlight of our visit to the Sonoma wine region.

Dry Creek was recommended by a friend. When we first arrived, we explored the beautiful grounds. If we had known that the picnic area was so inviting, we would have eaten our lunch there instead of at the General Store across the street. When we walked in to the tasting room, Robert greeted us and made us feel immediately at... More

My friends and I had a wonderful experience tasting wine at Dry Creek Vineyard. The grounds outside their tasting room are the perfect place for lunch, with one of their bottles of wine, on a beautiful Sonoma County day.
