We live in Ukiah and are wine club members at Dry Creek and a couple of other local wineries. Because we had other "errands" to do in Sonoma, we stopped at Dry Creek, to pick up our May shipment- thinking we were just going to dart in, pick up and leave. We even discussed cancelling our membership, as we live... More

Had an educational Mother's Day wine tasting w/family in the garden @ Dry Creek. Tasted 6 wines and got a history lesson with each one. Very thorough and interesting.

Beautiful setting and lovely wines, especially whites. We booked a tour online, and were delightfully surprised to find out it was a personal tour and tasting with Darren - who was great on both the vineyard and the wines.

We went to Dry Creek winery on the recommendation of the Manager of Spoonbar. We spent probably an hour there, tasting a variety of white and red wines. The woman who helped us was, as you would expect, very knowledgeable, and very friendly. We are not wine novices but we learned much from wine grapes, to soil to weather. Highly... More

This event was wonderful. Different stations of food, paired with one of their wines. A fun band played and a roving clown, juggling and making you laugh.

We're so happy to hear you had a nice time at our Day in Loire event! When Dave Stare founded Dry Creek Vineyard in 1972, he was inspired by Loire valley wineries in France. So it is important for us to celebrate that history. More

I love this place. The outdoor space is lovely, we always pack a picnic. The wines are excellent and affordable. Customer service is exceptional, Ian always takes care of us. It's a must stop everytime we're in Healdsburg.

We were greeted by Rich and without asking us one question, he just started talking, and talking, and talking. We tried to get a word in and tell him what we were looking for but he just didn't stop talking. We actually turned and started talking to each other and Rich continued to talk.

We came up to pick up our club wines. As always this winery is sterling in our "book". Why you might ask? Well here it goes--first of all the staff is very knowledgeable of their wines, especially Ian who was our "server". Their wines keep on getting better, especially the Pinot Noir . The prices are very reasonable. There is... More
