Loved their wines! And when you have someone personable pouring for you and sharing stories of the region, it makes it even more enjoyable. This was one of our fav wine tastings while there. :) Can't wait to go back!

Our unplanned visit and subsequent tour was very fortuitous as we were luckily hosted by Kim who was at the time acquainting a new member of mgt. to her team. The gardens, vineyards and all aspects of Dry Creek were magical to say the least and being topped off by the history of the family run operation by Kim just... More

We visited the vineyard with 3 friends who had never been in the Dry Creek Valley. The very informative tour, which included an explanation of the varieties of grapes, how they are grown, and some history of the area was great. The lovely gardens, and the Insectarium where specific plants are grown to attract beneficial insects was especially interesting. Then... More

Our first visit to Dry Creek was absolutely delightful. We had an informative tour of the winery and grounds as well as a wonderful tasting. We liked it so much that we joined the club and expect our first shipment tomorrow. With so many wineries to choose from, we highly recommend a stop here.

We came for the harvest celebration and to pick up our club wines. We expected a little more for this private member event. Some cheese or salamis to pair with the wines we tasted would have been really superb.

We have liked Dry Creek's wines for many years so it was great to see the vineyard first hand. Although we weren't there at a time we could make use of it they have a beautiful picnic area so bring some bread, cheese or whatever you'd like to picnic with and buy a bottle of wine to enjoy. We went... More

During a recent visit to Napa and Sonoma that included long-time friends from Kirkland, WA, we were able to schedule a private tour and tasting at Dry Creek. Since we have been Dry Creek Wine Club members for sixteen years and love their wines, we had high expectations. We had visited the tasting room on several previous occasions but had... More

We stopped into Dry Creek on a recommendation from a friend and it was the perfect place for us. Loved the yard games and the staff was very laid back, friendly and informative. They gave us great ideas for our next few stops too!

As I toured the different Sonoma wineries during vacation in September of 2014, I took particular note of those where I would enjoy drinking any of their wines. Dry Creek fit this criteria. I'm normally a red wine lover, but I even liked the Whites and Rose here. In addition, the wines are a very good value; the people behind... More
