I have been to many, many wine tastings and this was by far the most enjoyable. The garden and grounds were beautiful even in the rain. The staff was friendly and very knowledgeable. I loved tasting in the cellar! I purchased a case of wine and it arrived in excellent shape. I would definitely recommend Dry Creek Vineyard

The location is picturesque. The wines were very good. Our sommelier was Bob, who was very knowledgeable, helpful and entertained us with all kind of interesting stories.

We had a great wine tasting gathering at Dry Creek Winery last Wednesday for 12 college friends and was very impressed with the presentation by Darren. They have the three ingredients for a successful winery...excellent wine...friendly and knowledgeable staff...reasonable cost. We're club members and enjoy their gathering during the year.

We had not been to Dry Creek Vineyard for a number of years. Since then they have developed a wonderful facility. But what remains top-notch are the wonderful wines --- especially the Zins, which are one of our favorites.

This is one of the best experiences I have had at a vineyard or chateau from California to Bordeaux, France. The wines are incredible. I am not usually a Zinfandel lover but I bought several bottles to include in the case I purchased. The whole wine tasting experience was comfortable and the staff absolutely delightful.

The Dry Creek tasting room is outstanding - knowledgeable and accommodating staff, wonderful picnic area and in a delightful setting. If you get the opportunity, the tour is worth your time - very informative and brings new insights into wine viticulture & oenology - look it UP! Enjoy --

Twelve of us visited Dry Creek for a special tasting with Darren as our host. Darren was informative and the tasting experience was exceptional. My wife and I enjoyed our experience so much that we joined the Wine Club.

My husband and I came to Dry Creek Vineyard for an inpromptu tasting while visiting Healdsburg. Upon walking in, one of the first things we noticed was just how laid back and approachable to staff at the vineyard was while interacting with guests. Our wine educator is on his second career and embodies all the great qualities of Dry Creek... More
