We were visiting the Healdsburg area thinking spending time there in the winter. And of course when in the area we think that it is Mandatory to visit wineries. Dry Creek was outstanding. We loved all the wines. And left joining the Zin Lovers wine club. Looking forward to all wines to come.

Had a picnic on the lawn, listened to Beatles music and drank great wine. Attended the Sun Kings event at Dry Creek. We can't say enough great things about the event. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The venue is beautiful and it was not at all crowded. They even provided ice buckets for the wine we bought to enjoy... More

My first visit was Mother's Day weekend. We had a great visit and received an extended tasting. I'm not usually a fan of whites, but I enjoyed all of theirs and really liked the reds too. Joined the club right then. 2nd visit June 25th, during the week on my normal days off, just like the first and glad we... More

We visited for the Sun Kings afternoon performance and Zin Summer Festival late June. We walked in, lawn chairs and picnic basket in hand. We set up on the lush green lawn in front of the band, bought a bottle of DELICIOUS ZIN, and it was like being in our back garden on steroids. The employees and guests were so... More

Our host, Robert, is perfect for his job - outgoing, knowledgeable and meets his customers on their level of understanding. The atmosphere was friendly and engaging and the wines were excellent. I'm a new, happy club member and will absolutely return in the future! Sharing the wines now with friends in Texas and getting lots of compliments.

With each visit to Dry Creek Vineyards, I learn a little more about this distinctive family-owned winery and their exemplary wines. The expert Tasting Room staff (Ian, Darren, Rich, Bill and company) are friendly, approachable, and take their time with each guest. Their MO isn't about sales, showing off or getting people in and out of the tasting room. Across... More

I don't often get to the Sonoma Valley but when I do I always make it a point to go to Dry Creek Vineyard. They have a beautiful tasting room and lovely grounds. The staff is always very friendly and even remember my name! Of course, the wines are fantastic - all of them!

My fiance and I actually got engaged here! We scheduled a tour (just the two of us) with Rich. It was a very informative and lovely tour of Dry Creek Vineyard. The wine was excellent, too. I don't think we tried a wine that we didn't like. I would certainly recommend Dry Creek Vineyard! Thanks.
