Open By Appointment Only. In the heart of the beautiful Russian River Valley, Gary Farrell Vineyards & Winery offers a proud 33-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 on our intimate outdoor terrace and the view from our winery completes the picture.

This is the most beautiful tasting room and terrace that I have seen. It is way up a hill overlooking the valley. It is designed for the views which are fantastic. You can sit outside or inside at the bar and taste first class wines, but take your time as you enjoy the scenery because it is expensive and you... More

We were fortunate to tour during "crush" and got to see some of the initial stages of wine making at Farrell. Although they don't have their own vineyards, they do get grapes from leading producers in the area. The tour was informative and the tasting was leisurely with three chardonnays and three pinot noirs. Because Farrell is a bit off... More

My wife and I had made a reservation for a tasting at the Farrell winery for the last day of our Napa vacation. We almost missed the tasting due to a triathlon being held that day which had some roads restricted to the winery. We persisted and found a alternative route and were so glad we did as the view...

Our wine shop in Ohio set up a tour and tasting for me, my husband, and his daughter. We arrived on a cool, foggy morning having driven in from Sonoma. Physically, the place is just beautiful; all stone, redwood, and gorgeous views. We were cordially greeted and then ushered into the tasting room to meet our guide, Ruthanne. She poured... More

My wife and I visited on the first morning of our 25 th anniversary vacation, and they definitely set the bar high for the rest of our trip. Thankfully, it was a beautiful day and we were the only ones scheduled for a tour and tasting. We were met by Lianne, one of the concierges, who was our personal host... More

We have participated in similar events before, but never with such a knowledgeable guide. Our tasting was led by someone who has actually been a wine maker and thereby was extremely knowledgeable.
