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.

Dry creek is one of my favorite wineries. Some of the wineries are so expensive, but Dry Creek keeps their prices reasonable. I haven't been very thrilled with the taste of the Chardoney, too smokey for me. All the other wines are delicious. We try and have a picnic every year at the beautiful grounds.

Always one of my favorite stops. Darren was both helpful and generous and the wine was spectacular. My wife and I brought two other couples - and they are now fans too...

Our host at Dry Creek was Greg. We started out like any other visiting tasters, most certainly. But as we began to experience the wines, two things became clear: 1) Dry Creek Wines belong in the top echelons of Upper Sonoma County wineries; and 2) Greg listened to our comments (the tasting room was not super full that weekday in...

Our visit last weekend was the second we had made to this winery. We picked up some sandwiches made at the corner store (about a quarter mile east of Dry Creek Winery), a bottle of Chardonnay from Dry Creek, had lunch in the beautiful grounds, and then returned to the winery for tastings. The Dry Chenin Blanc was the first... More

Great wines, friendly staff who provide a great tasting experience (knowledgeable, but not stuffy), and beautiful grounds. What more can you ask for? My only wish was that I had more time to spend here.

It wasn't only that Dry Creek Vineyard is the official winery of sailors (I am an avid sailor, owner of a Hunter 33.5, plus spent 35 years in the Navy): the wines are excellent, the setting sublime, and the sommelier was informative and entertaining. My wife, adult daughter, and I had a wonderful time.

Great location with picnic tables For use for the guests but most all superb wines especially the reserves. The prices were reasonable and the staff knowledgable of their wine. Thank you Rachel for making this day for our daughter's first tasting, a special one. I'm glad I'm a club member
