Seriously - delicious food, fun & funky souvenirs, wine, and a bar all wrapped into one built-a-century-ago package? I can't love this place any more. We stop in everytime we're in the area, and get breakfast foods, picnic items, and sometimes souvenirs. We haven't stopped by in the evenings for a drink at the bar yet, since we're usually a bit pickled from wine tasting all day, but it's on our list - it looks awesome; lots of locals and tasting room employees hanging out.

We usually get a selection of the freshly made salads and crackers/cheese/salami, but have also had the sandwiches, which were excellent. I can also recommend the breakfast items, and all the delicious snacky things up by the register - really, it's hard to go wrong.

The ONE downside is that this place gets crazy on weekends, particularly nice ones, holidays, or during an area event. Best to visit early and get some ice and pack your picnic with you - it will save you a 45 minute wait in line for food. So far, everything's been available when we've stopped in around 9 - 10am, so no issues with buying early.

Seriously - if I win the lottery, I'm buying a house/vineyard on Dry Creek road and coming here every day.

Well preserved and now well taken care of, the Dry Creek General Store is a wonderful stop in Sonoma wine country. Great food and sandwiches, from paninni's to deli items and a very representative selection of Sonoma wines to wine country gifts, just a great place to stop for a lunch or to add to your picnic. It has a great rustic vibe and the staff are very accommodating and helpful. Good to know where to find good food when wine tasting!

Love the Dry Creek Store! Always a great place to stop in the spring or summer when you can sit on the patio and eat one of their delicious breakfast sandwiches!

Also, if you are on top of their schedule, they have a great all you can eat dinner during the summer months (Thursdays I think?) A fun place to meet up with friends and really sit back and relax in the middle of wine country.

The Dry Creek bar is the answer for everyone who works in the valley to go for a quick beer at the end of the day. Because you know, it takes a lot of beer to make good wine!
