Recommend by Healssburg's information office, we came to this place with a voucher that allowed a free tasting of 5 wines for up to 4 people.

The wines were nice althought we were not particularly impressed by them. Their Syrah was interesting and should be tried or bought if possible. However, we did not feel anything special for the rest.

The service was correct although not outstanding. No fault of the workers but my guess is that they were a bit understaffed. Notwithstanding the aforementioned, we were provided vouchers to try other vineyards owned by the same company without even having to ask for them which was very nice.

The best thing was the location. They have a terrific picnic area with a great view to the vines located in a nearby foothill. We highly recommend taking you time there and enjoy their nice tables and great country feeling.

I have been a member of this winery for quite a while now. It is a small-medium sized establishment that still feels like it is all about the wine. Away from the Napa Valley craziness Dutcher Crossing has great people, a great location that is never too busy, and amazing wines that you never see in stores.

This is a medium sized winery that had really good zinfandel. The host really made the experience great. The winery was very busy when we came, and he made room for us on the end of the bar and really spent time educating us, as wine neophytes. What a great experience.

It is also a great place to have lunch. Our lunch was provided by our wine tour guide, but the setting was wonderful. You will have to try their food, though we did not.

Excellent place.

This winery is one of the slightly smaller and less commercial wineries. It is in a lovely position and has a very nice picnic area out back, so it is a good place to go for a tasting around lunchtime to complement a nice picnic lunch.
