We visited Dry Creek Vineyard for a tasting session and really enjoyed the experience. This is quite a big and commercial vineyard though and although the staff were friendly and informative, they weren't as accommodating as some of the staff we met at the smaller, family-run vineyards in the area.

Solid enjoyable place, but, the wines are good and not great, there are no views or drop dead gorgeous grounds. The people are friendly and want you to enjoy your experience, but this is not at the top of my list

It was a bit of a hike to go to DCV from San Jose, but I was so happy I made the trip. DCV’s Mariner Meritage was the first Meritage I had in a NYC wine tasting class years ago, and I have been partial to great blends ever since. I unfortunately can't remember her name, but the small young... More

Items in the refrigerated food case are not price marked. They are probably too embarrassed to put a $16.50 price tag on a package of crackers. Are you kidding nag me? No, they were not! Wines are very good, though.
