“Perfect Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

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 with our picnic. Have attended previous events and all have been first class. It is a great wine club too and best of all is enjoying the Dry Creek wines!

“Weekday visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

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 are members. Very nice picnic grounds where we enjoyed our lunch and chilled bottleof white, glasses provided by winery. Doesn't get much better.

“Best party with new friends!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

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 friendly, there was plenty of wine (and cold water), and the music kept the crowd dancing on the soft grass until the end of the day. Fabulous place to spend an afternoon!

“A winery where you can really enjoy every bit of the experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

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.

“Best Healdsburg Tasting Room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

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 the boards, this knowledgeable crew will make your experience at Dry Creek a day to remember. They'll recommend varietals and vintages based on your palate, and gladly recommend local wineries where you can find the same. The atmosphere at Dry Creek Vineyards is warm, cozy--like visiting an old friend.
