This was our first stop throughout Napa and Sonoma for a friend's birthday trip. My husband and I went in by ourselves here and ended up staying for an hour and a half, just chit chatting Rich and having some AMAZING wine. The grounds were beautiful and wine was amazing. Above all, Rich was SO knowledgable and was obviously passionate... More

We had an excellent experience. Having booked a private tour with Bob, we were given an informative overview of the vineyards history. Then, a walking tour of the nearby vineyards gave us valuable information on the clones and the different varieties of grapes. We finished with a wonderful private tasting in the barrel room with more informative descriptions and tastes... More

My husband and I had a wonderful visit to Dry Creek Vineyard. The staff working at the sampling counter was extremely knowledgeable and personable. We even purchased some of their wine to have for the duration of our trip. We were on a self guided bike tour and brought sandwiches with us to eat outside at the picnic tables. The... More

We love Dry Creek. The wine is to die for. We left with two bottles of the Endeavor, our sole purpose for the visit, and one bottle of the Maritage. And we joined the wine club, finally! The staff are so friendly and informative. Darren is the best! And the vineyard is absolutely beautiful. You gotta go!

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Dry Creek Winery. The history of the owner is very interesting, and the staff was very friendly and did a great job of describing the wines and the history of the winery. Great picnic area on the property. The insect garden is very interesting and was filled with butterflies and hummingbirds when we visited.... More

Light showers kept crowds away, so a 1 on 1 hour with Bob was truly wonderful. His knowledge of wines coupled with his obvious enjoyment of working there was better than any paid tour. Tasting Zins side by side was very insightful and educational. We left with a perfect assortment of smiles, info, appreciation, and of course wine!

My wife and I celebrated our 35 wedding anniversary this year by planning a wine tasting week in Sonoma County. We set up our trip around Dry Creek Vineyards' Chef's Harvest Dinner and Harvest Festival. Unbelievably great time. The staff and other guests were all fantastic to us and the venue, food and especially the wine were excellent. Having dinner... More

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
