The cellar was amazing!! The people that we see here, generally only at holiday times, have become close friends. Kim, the owner of Dry Creek is her steller self -lovely, vivacious and welcoming. Tim, the winemaker, has become very articulate about his vision as he gains confidence in his wines as they've gone out into the world to garner award... More

Dry Creek Vineyards is a great location for a picnic lunch. We stopped by the Dry Creek General Store for sandwiches and headed for Dry Creek Vineyards. We first did a wine tasting - treated more like a number than a valued guest. Wines were nice but the service certainly was not stellar and the staff certainly were not welcoming... More

This was another visit to this vineyard of many. We tasted the wines that was offered and enjoyed this event very much. I even joined the VIP club which enables me to enjoy a very special wine crafted only once a year. Still amazing wines, especially the 2013 Endeavor !! Thank you to your amazing staff who are extremely knowledgeable... More

Just spent a beautiful afternoon at the winery with friends. We had a private tasting in the barrel room. Our hostess was very accommodating and knowledgeable. Our entire party was very enthralled with the selection we were privileged to sample. Our day was highlighted by a rousing game of Bocce Ball in the court among the vines.

Not sure why this place has such rave reviews but it was throughly average. We didn't find any of the wines above average. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, the property was beautiful and would be good for a picnic. Not for us here but may be fine for different tastes.

Found this place on a bike ride in 2002 and have always stopped there whenever I'm in Healdsburg. First, the staff is always convivial and well-informed. Second, the location is outstanding. Quiet road, picturesque, nice building and grounds. Third, wonderful picnic area. Fourth, electric car chargers. Fifth, and certainly not last, very good wine! Writing a review this time because...

A fabulous informative wine tasting (party of 8) hosted by Ian in a beautiful setting on the grounds of the vineyard while enjoying our lunch provided by Wine Country bikes. The wine club opportunities are not to be missed here with so many options. The Old Vine Zin rocks !

Great wines, friendly knowledgeable host in Nick. Added this one to our clubs. Beautiful area, fall colors and great weather. So many wineries, we focused on Dry Creek area and visited wineries along Dry Creek Road heading north from Healdsburg.

We stopped at a number of wineries in the area and this was one of our favorites. They have a good selection of reds and some decent white wines. The price for tasting was pretty consistent with the area and they take the price off if you buy a bottle. It was sort of a stingy pour but the attendant... More
