Have been a member for several years. Love the rustic ambiance, very friendly staff, and especially the Zin, tempranillo and primitivo.Their wine pick up dates feature free food and free wine tastes for members and usually live music. Great place to spend a few hours on a warm day.

Friendly folks, great music and a Vino De Mocca that will knock your socks off! Free wine tasting with a variety of exceptional wines. Relaxed vibe with comfortable outdoor area and a couple of friendly dogs.

Stepping out of the car, my husband and I were immediately welcomed by two friendly dogs (always a good sign). After a few pats to the pups, we went inside and saddled up to the bar where we were offered generous samples of delicious wine coupled with excellent conversation. The atmosphere was genuinely relaxed and welcoming. We left with 3... More

It's the Wandering Yank here. Mrs. Yank and I were in the Amador wine country 2 weekends ago for the annual Crush event, where we bought a ticket that gave us unlimited tasting and food. We had a great time, visiting 11 wineries over 2 days. This is a pretty down-to-earth winery, especially compared to some of the other Amador... More

This is a small winery, run by very friendly people, that produce exceptional wines. They have free wine tasting in a relaxed environment. It's very refreshing after going to the big, overhyped, expensive wineries with mediocre wines.

What a wonderful experience! The Staff was so friendly and warm. Sandy had a great deal of knowledge about the wines. They had a nice pour and no charge. I Think this is more fun than Napa any day!! They treat you like friends and you may even see and talk to the owner/winemaker, Alan. We will be back Drytown... More

We went up with friends to pick up our futures purchased from the 2015 Barrel Tasting event and had such a warm and enthusiastic welcome, that we spent majority of our afternoon at the winery.

A relaxed informality for a tasting of really rather good wines. No fuss, generosity of samples, un-pushy information. Their range of varietals has increased over time, not surprisingly, but there were no duds in our tasting. I particularly liked the Viognier and the Barbera, but it's worth asking about any special offers - the "Sierra Gold" blended white at half... More
