Dry Creek is our favorite winery in the Healdsburg area. The entire staff is friendly and knowledgeable. My wife and I both enjoy red wine, and the Zinfandels & Cabs here are so very good. We always feel welcome at this winery, it is never a bad day. We became club members a good number of years ago and typically use Dry Creek Winery as a place to have a picnic, with nice food and great wine. The winery had barrel tasting for members, and it was so much fun to learn a bit more about the wines.

We never fail to visit this winery whenever we are in the area. Great wines at fair prices. Wine servers are informative and helpful. One year we attended a "Beatles" concert here. It was great. Grounds are beautiful.

I went to Dry Creek Vineyards tasting room on a Saturday. It was the only time I could arrange between business travel. I signed up for a $25.00 wine flight, and was taken into a private area where I sampled 7-8 reasonably priced wines. I liked all of the wines, and ended up buying nearly a case of zinfandel, chenin blanc, sauvignon blanc, and a red blend. I am sorry that I don't recall the name of the man who poured the wines, but he was friendly and knowledgeable.

The tasting room consists of a long bar, which was jammed with people when I arrived. The outside picnic area is spacious and pretty. The only advice I would give is to avoid the weekends. The experience would be more enjoyable when it's less crowded.

This was our second visit here… and both turned out about the same. Had a wonderful time, really enjoyed the staff, and ended up shipping home some wine. Great value for some really good wines - and they are some of the friendliest staff to work with. Enjoyable experience… but you won't go away empty handed!

Dry Creek Vineyard is our new favorite vineyard and I know we will return when we are in the area. All the staff made us feel welcome especially our "wine guide", Karen. She spent a lot of time with us and was so informative about the different wines and also the wine pairings. Thank you so much Karen for making our day! One wine that both of us thought was very refreshing was the 2012 dry Chenin blanc for $12. I asked if we could buy some of their wines in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area and they were kind enough to look it up and said that they do have a distribution here. Even in February, the grounds are beautiful with flowers lining the path to the tasting room. There are picnic tables for people to sit and relax. Add this vineyard to your list!!!!

We'll be sure to let Karen know you had a great time. And I love your story about looking up a retailer in Minneapolis/St. Paul. We always try to go the extra mile!
