About
Open By Appointment Only. In the heart of the beautiful Russian River Valley, Gary Farrell Vineyards & Winery offers a proud 35-year winemaking history and a unique sense of place. Perched atop a ridge along winding Westside Road, the winery offers a spectacular view of the sweeping valley below. Gary Farrell Winery benefits immeasurably from its long-term relationships with many of the Russian River Valley's most celebrated and sought-after vineyards including Rochioli, Allen, and Hallberg to name a few. Gary Farrell Winery helped put Russian River Valley Pinot Noir and Chardonnay on the world stage, and the hallmark Gary Farrell wine style remains one of balance, elegance, texture and sense of place. Today these acclaimed wines can be enjoyed in their newly renovated Salon or upon the casual terrace and the view from the winery completes the picture.

Not what I expected
Mar 2021 • Couples
Gary Farrell came highly recommend for their experience and wines. I understand being cautious with the pandemic but they took it a little too far. When you first arrive you have to call a phone number before they will allow you to enter. They then meet you outside the front door to escort you to the cheap plastic table and chairs out their expansive outdoor space with a nice view. All of the wines were pre poured and sitting in the sun. All of the hosts stood about 12 feet away from you while giving a very scripted speech on the brand and their wines while not asking anything about you or the wines you enjoy. There was also a cheese plate which was nice but since everything was sitting in the sun the cheese was sweating and the wines became very warm by the end. Maybe pre Covid this was a great place to visit but right now I would not recommend visiting.

We really enjoyed our Gary Farrell Wine tasting experience. The wines were outstanding of course but the views, ambience and wine tasting insight and service were truly lovely.

Russian River Pinot Trip
Nov 2020
Just what we hope for in a tasting. We are Pinot nuts and everything about our visit was great. The cheese pairing was perfect and our hostess was awesome. Joined the club and look forward to a return visit. I would definitely recommend Gary Farrell to our friends.

It’s not just about the views!
Oct 2020
While the views are spectacular which makes it a destination, the wines can turn any surrounding into a perfect destination. The small personal setting which are now done as a side by side tasting is definitely the way to go. All tastings should be side by side. The views are just the icing on the cake but I keep coming back for the filling!!!! And having Tesla chargers on the premise is a great plus. Enjoy.

Amazing Views & Very Safety Conscience
Oct 2020
Our visit to Gary Farrell was wonderful! I highly recommend it! They were very clean/ safe and had amazing wines. They also let us purchase a bottle of wine and drink it on their patio!

Beautiful winery, unfortunate experience
Sep 2020
Full disclosure: the wildfires in the area were staring to pick up, and most (if not all) were either calling to reschedule or outright canceling the day before. GF called us with 5 minutes until our tasting (literally as we pulled into the parking lot), then dropped off the flights (said it wasn’t safe to be outside - we all have masks on now) and went back inside and didn’t come out again; but encouraged us to view the winery history on YouTube at our leisure. It was a little hazy but far from “dangerous” (this was early September). Based on the treatment, it’s unlikely I would return again - as other wineries that canceled were far more accommodating and organized.

Another exceptional tasting experience
Oct 2020
My wife and I have tasted wines at Gary Farrell for a number of years. Each time we are rewarded with an exceptional experience. This last tasting, in October, was no exception.

A fantastic tasting experience
Oct 2020
Terrific views, GREAT wine and some outstanding cheese pairings at Gary Farrell. They were very responsible (social distancing) as well. We joined the Grand Cru before arriving, and the experience (and, did I mention, the wines? Just outstanding!) reaffirmed the decision. Can't wait until the next time!

Wine with a View
Sep 2020
Wine tasting during a pandemic is a contingency that no vintner could anticipate. Nevertheless, Gary Farrell has thoughtfully implemented a safe and elegant experience that overlooks nothing but the beautiful scenery that reveals itself from the Gary Farrel terrace. Wine and cheese are presented to the visitor, and links to a fully interactive website provide a table experience that enables visitors to learn about what they are tasting. The masked staff are smart and friendly, offering advice about the excellent Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and other grapes that make their way into the GFW bottles. Membership options are fairly priced and provide several delivery options. Reservations required and visitors must wear a mask to enter.
