Was impressed by how relaxed the wine tasting was on picnic tables in a lovely garden area of the winery. Emotionally intelligent and informative guide Bob did a wonderful job making us feel comfortable with interesting tales of the winery history (including giving our Borgi dogs a bowl of water which they appreciated!) and tailored our tasting to what we liked. Introduced us to the wine club literature but wasn't pushy about it which so many wineries these days are... We ended up buying 4 bottles of wine and will no doubt look for more wine from this winery. Top notch reds and wonderfully dog friendly. Thank you from those of us who travel with our pups!

Whether you are new to wine tasting or a veteran, you will find consistently memorable wines at reasonable prices. Dry Creek winery has never wavered from these two objectives to define unpretentious quality. Neither the tasting room nor the grounds is trying to transport you to Europe or impress you with celebrity status. You just enjoy quiet Sonoma beauty.

Still family owned and operated, you are always treated as family.

We made the appointment at 3pm for wine tasting and our table was ready as we came in. Nick was our host. He was very professional and extremely knowledgeable of the wines we tasted. Great addition to your team!! This was a special day for us because one of our guests has never been wine tasting in her 67+ years! She LOVED the wines and the garden.
Since we were the last group for the day, we were given the right to eat our snacks. Thanks Ian🍷.
I have been a wine club member for many years and the wines are still best!!!! The “Caroling” was great addition to our tastings.

I work in the Industry at Amista Vineyards which shares the property line with Dry Creek. My partner is more inclined to grab a bottle of white and myself I lean more to the reds.
The winemaker Tim Bell dies and outstanding job with both and is incredibly skilled when it comes to blending.
I know the wines fairly well at Dry Creek and refer a great number of people who are looking for whites as we only have one white still we specialize in sparkling wine and Rhône’s.
We tasted with Kevin as our host, he was extremely knowledgeable about the wine, the various vineyards they source grapes from as well as the history of the property and the owners, which made the experience all the better.
Without a doubt I will return and continue to support Dry Creek Vineyards with referrals as well as family and friends. Truly a great pick in DCV and feel free to visit Amista if you’re looking for great sparkling wines and lovely stills, feel free to ask for a referral card and enjoy a two for one tasting.

It was our first time at the winery and we had such a great experience at Dry Creek Vineyard. The wines were so good, the winery was beautiful and Kevin was so great and really a joy. He was extremely knowledgeable about the wines and winery while keeping it light and fun! We signed up for the wine club and would definitely recommend this winery.

My wife and I booked a private tour and tasting ($40) for a Monday afternoon in January. We were the only people on the tour and we had excellent personal attention the entire time. The gentleman that conducted the tour (I think his name was Don) was a knowledgeable and very personable older gentleman. He had an intimate knowledge of the winery's history and the wine making process, from the type of soil and varietals planted, to the actual wine making production and distribution process.
Of course, their wine is excellent, which is why we chose this location in the first place. We tasted at least 6 varietals, all of which we very good.
We highly recommend the private tours at Dry Creek. Salud!

First getaway after COVID so my friend and I were looking for a quiet place to taste some wine and catch up. Dry Creek was a perfect choice. Ten minutes from downtown so easy to find. Paige was a great hostess; knowledgeable and fun. She also gave us recs for dinner with a little local color about their history. I don’t really drink red wine so she added more white for me during the tasting. Picture sitting under a big tree, on a lovely lawn with a beautiful flower garden tasting some very good wines and enjoying chatting in person! There are hundreds of wineries in the area—this is a good choice. Make reservations. Tasting fee but waived with purchase, and you will want to buy at least a bottle!

Dry Creek is a beautiful setting, with wonderful wine and the most amazing staff! We sort of messed up our reservation, and showed up with a larger group than was expected (we are all wine club members but we only made reservations for part of our group...totally our fault). The staff at Dry Creek was so gracious and were able to accommodate all of us very comfortably. In fact, we loved our spot inside the tent with our own heat lamp! Jack was our server and we are always amazed by his graciousness, his boundless energy, and his extensive knowledge of the wines. He really is a rock star, especially dealing with our larger than expected group plus a dog, with our massive picnic spread.

My husband I showed up at the winery to pick up our wine club shipment. We did not have an appointment. We asked to try a few sauvignon blancs so we could make a purchase. Our helper (Darren?) went off to fetch our wine shipment so we asked a woman (long blonde hair) behind the counter to help us. She declined, then rolled her eyes toward another tasting room employee. Darren (I hope that's his name) returned and poured a glass of sauv blanc, but the whole experience was so negative that we left and went to Quivira where we bought a case of wine. This is the first bad experience we've had at Dry Creek.

We had a fabulous tasting with Darren! He was accommodating to our large group. When rain came the day of our reservation he was flexible and helped come up with a backup plan. Darren was knowledgeable about the wines and even poured us a few off the list. Our group of 10 went home happy, and with 18 bottles of wine! Cheers 🍷
