Dry Creek Vineyard Wine-Tasting Experience

Dry Creek Vineyard Tasting

Set amid the rolling hills of the Dry Creek Valley in Sonoma County, Dry Creek Vineyard was founded in 1972 and was the first new winery built in the valley after Prohibition. Known for their dedication to varietals like chenin blanc, sauvignon blanc, zinfandel, merlot and cabernet sauvignon, this family-owned winery grows grapes on more than 185 acres (75 hectares) of land in the Dry Creek and Russian River Valleys.

When your selected tasting finishes, feel free to stay at the winery afterward to enjoy the picnic grounds. The well-manicured lawn is a great place to pair a snack with your favorite bottle of Dry Creek Vineyard wine.

Option 1: Tour and Tasting
When you arrive at Dry Creek Vineyard, a winery host will greet you, give you a brief introduction to the winery and offer you your first wine of the day — a taste of chenin blanc.

During your 1-hour tour, take a look behind the scenes of Dry Creek Vineyard’s historic family winery as you learn about the vineyards, harvest equipment, barrels and winemaking techniques. Then, with a professional wine educator, proceed to the tasting room for a sample of five delicious Dry Creek wines.

Option 2: Tasting Flight
Upon arrival at the vineyard, you’ll be led to Dry Creek’s private wine cellar, a separate area from the public tasting room. With your wine educator, sip your way through at least five wines, including favorite varietals like sauvignon blanc and zinfandel.

Your host is a knowledgeable wine educator of the Dry Creek Vineyard, so feel free to ask any questions you have about the wines in your flight, or winemaking in general.

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

My wife and I recently took a guided tour of Dry Creek Vineyard. As luck would have it, we were the only two scheduled for the time-slot, so, we were fortunate to receive a private tour. Our tour guide, Bill, was very good and quite knowledgeable about both Dry Creek and wine in general. We received an overview of the winery's history toured the vineyard saw and received an explanation of the crushing machines visited the storage room sampled some zinfandel grapes and had several tastings of both red and white wines produced by Dry Creek. We found the experience to be quite educational and enjoyable. The tour lasted just short of 2 hours, and we would certainly recommend this to anyone looking for a winery tour.
