All the wines are delicious. The tasting experience was $10 and wonderful. We picnicked afterwards with a great view of the valley and vineyards. Matt was a great guide through the wines. Of the 20 wineries we visited in Sonoma and Napa, this was one of the very best. Well worth the trip.

Our innkeeper recommended Dutcher Crossing and we had a wonderful experience in the tasting room. The wines are delicious. Try the Zins! We were served by Laney and she could not have been more friendly or accommodating. We ended up joining the wine club and look forward to drinking their wine for years to come.

Everyone was friendly and accommodating. They made us feel like rocks tars. Wine was very good. They Helped us celebrate a great birthday and made fantastic recommendations for other places to visit. We loved Ryan.

When we travel to Sonoma wine country we never miss Dutcher Crossing Winery! Their staff is all very knowledgeable and friendly. Plan on bringing lunch and purchasing a wine to have with it in their beautiful picnic area. Enjoy spacious views of the valley from the covered (cool in hot weather) area.

We picked up lunch from General Store and enjoyed a fine wine tasting at the picnic area. Wins are very nice and show a lot of fruit. One of my favorites.

We had never heard of Dutcher Crossing-- but our "Finest Wineries" book (which we love) pointed us to visit this small production (5,000 cases/yr) winery in northern Sonoma County. WE WERE BLOWN AWAY. The setting is beautiful, and the wines are even better. Top to bottom, white to rose to red, we were deeply impressed. This was our 4th trip... More

In a sea of corporate owned wineries that offer cookie-cutter wines and experience, both in Napa and Sonoma - it was SO refreshing to walk into Dutcher Crossing Winery and FINALLY feel and taste authentic passion for wine! They produce around 10,000 cases, and they made every case count. Loved the Chardonnay, Zins, and Cabs - the entire staff was... More

We visit Dutcher Crossing during the Passport to Dry Creek event. They are always one of our favorite stops. Not only do they have excellent wine, but they do fantastic food pairings. The folks are friendly and helpful. The setting has a nice view of the valley. We highly recommend a visit.

This winery was recommended for award winning wines and friendly knowledgeable service. But we were very disappointed. Our tasting flight was served by a young woman who had no interest in us or what she was pouring. She told us virtually nothing about the wines. There's a beautiful view from here but that's about the only thing we liked.
