Wine Tasting at Dry Creek Vineyard
Open daily from 10:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
When you visit our wine tasting room, you get a glimpse of what makes Dry Creek Vineyard special. Wine tasting offers a delightful opportunity to sample Dry Creek Vineyard’s signature vintages. Dry Creek Vineyard is located in the heart of Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County. Founded in 1972 by David Stare, ours was the first new winery built in Dry Creek Valley following Prohibition. We have a long track record of producing some of California’s finest Fumé Blancs and Zinfandels. In addition to these “flagships”, Dry Creek Vineyard is also known for excellent Dry Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Meritage, The Mariner and, starting with the 1997 vintage, Endeavour Cabernet. Today, the winery owns over 185 acres of vineyard land, primarily in the Dry Creek and the Russian River Valleys.
We invite you to visit our family winery, spend a little time in our wine tasting room, and experience the beauty of the Dry Creek Valley. Our Tasting Room offers a wide range of wine tasting options including a $10 tasting of our Signature Wines and a $15 tasting of our Wine Club selections.
Our beautiful picnic grounds make a lovely setting to enjoy a snack paired with Dry Creek Vineyard wines purchased from our tasting room. In addition to great wine, lovely picnic grounds, and warm hospitality, you can share your Dry Creek Vineyard experience using our free WiFi.
For groups of 6 or more, please call in advance to confirm pricing and availability. Please contact our Concierge, Darren Abel at 800-864-9463 x103 or Concierge@drycreekvineyard.com.
