    Great experience, wonderful wine, friendly staff, affordable wine club!
    We really liked this place. Great wine and friendly staff. Paige was our excellent host. We joined their wine club… affordable (and very good!) wine and shipping costs. Lots of options for wine. Our favorites were Farmhouse Zinfandel, Spencer’s Hill Zinfandel, Merlot, and Endeavour Cabernet Sauvignon. I recommend visiting!

    One of our favorite wineries not to miss!
    What a wonderful way to start your day in Sonoma wine country by visiting Dry Creek Vineyards in Healdsburg for wine tastings and a picnic lunch in a beautiful and picturesque setting. Gabriel made our wine tasting experience unforgettable for the three couples from GA with both her knowledge of wines and her personality. Later that same day, Gabriel saw us in downtown Healdsburg having dinner and made a point to come speak to us. We were so glad to see Gabriel again and told her how much fun we had with her at Dry Creek Vineyards. We enjoyed the wines so much that we decided to join the wine club to keep the experience going.

    Good wines in a nice setting
    Enjoyed the wine tasting and box lunches with another couple. The lunches were very tasty and fresh. The outdoor seating is very spread out, so you almost feel like you are by yourselves, and very pleasant setting. The wine is very good, you are given lots of time between tastings to enjoy the wine, have conversations etc. The employees are very knowledgeable and accommodating, if you want to substitute more whites, or reds, than are on the original tasting menu.

    Our wine club release visit
    Dry Creek Winery is an amazing experience!! Large lawn area with lots of private tables & umbrellas. *** We had made a special request on this tasting trip to have Bernie as our wine tasting host.. Bernie is incredible!! He is SO knowledgeable about the Dry Creek wines & fun to interact with.. We were fortunate to have Bernie on our first visit to Dry Creek in July’23 & I joined the wine club with Bernie’s assistance.. I would highly recommend Dry Creek & Bernie!!! Larry

    Great wine from great people
    We stopped in after receiving a recommendation from the staff at Ridge Vineyards. Despite arriving only a half-hour before they closed, they accommodated us with a full tasting. Their staff were friendly and knowledgable and the wines were excellent. We felt welcomed and not at all rushed and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We will definitely be back!

    Dry Creek is always a delight
    Wonderful wines; wonderful experience. Went there in September, joined the wine club (got my first shipment in November) so eagerly awaited this visit. It did not disappoint. Looking forward to enjoying some of the wines we purchased

    Relaxing Sunday afternoon in a beautiful setting tasting great wines
    Booked a reservation and visited on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Darren was our server and he took great care of us. The tasting menu included one delicious wine after another - we may have taken several bottles home with us.

Walked in on a Sunday afternoon for a tasting. Beautiful grounds even on a rainy February day. Can only imagine how nice this would be in season. We were greeted with a warm welcome and asked if we wanted to have our tasting in their welcome area or proceed to their cellar. We of course chose their wine cellar area and it was absolutely perfect for a tasting, sitting alongside their barrels and other wine paraphernalia. Bernie our wine attendant was genuine, professional, patient, and very well versed on Dry Creek's wine making methodology. They offered 11 different wines to taste with 5 per person. We chose 10 of the 11 to get the true variety and found most of them very very good. They're mainly a Bordeaux style winery with many varieties of Zinfandel but we found their chardonnay to be excellent as well. We ordered a mixed case and received a nice discount on the wines and shipping for joining their wine club which had minimal requirements for future purchases which doesn't lock you in to overpriced releases you may not want. We were on a last minute 2 day trip in the area and didn't have any reservations anywhere, so we took pot luck and drove around Healdsburg looking for wineries. Fortunately we found Dry Creek and rate then in the top 10 of about 50 wineries we've visited in the Napa/Sonoma region over the years. We highly recommend them!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
