Owner description: 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.

Yes yes yes....the views are wonderful. Very cool architecture and comfortable tasting areas.
Wish I remembered the name of our tasting host. She was lovely, friendly and knowledgeable.
I was pleasantly surprised by how tasty the Pinot Noir was. Definitely above average. The new tasting room manager also stopped by and said hello. Classy touch.

We drove to Gary Farrell and the Russian River Valley for the day from Rutherford. It was well worth the drive! The view from the patio was fantastic and very relaxing. We opted for the patio tasting, which we were told included one more wine than the indoor tasting and was $25 instead of $15, but it actually included two more wines. Taylor gave the tasting and was very knowledgeable about the wines and about Healdsburg, in general. It was well worth the trip to taste their delicious Pinot Noir. Save some extra time to do this tasting if you want to sit outside and take in the view.

Besides the broad, spectacular view of Forestville,
the zins and pinots are rich and tasty. Unlike some tastings, you're not rushed- there is a friendly ambiance without heavy pressure to buy, buy buy.

Great place off the beaten path to enjoy a bottle of wine and the view sitting outside looking over the valley. Wine was good, people were friendly and helpful.

The minute you drive into the Winery you are surrounded by breathtaking views. I enjoyed the wine tastings and fees were waved with wine purchase. You need to visit!
