Built in 1979 into the hillside in Dry Creek Valley, our vision was to harness natural efficiencies and unique attributes of a subterranean winery, including cool temperatures. 15 Minutes north of Healdsburg. Open daily 10:30am to 5:00pm, except some major holidays. Cave tours by appointment on weekends. Located 15 minutes north of Healdsburg and 30 minutes north of Santa Rosa.

A little more pricey on the wine tasting here and you only get your tasting fee back if you buy two bottles instead of just one. You don't really go into the underground area for the tasting but they do have a beautiful location and...More

Gorgeous winery off the beaten path with a friendly staff. I love how the building was built into the hillside...how can I get myself one of these? Reds and whites were all good, though I was slightly tipsy, so my opinion may not be spot...More

Beautiful setting for an awesome winery. Even with the large number of wineries in Sonoma Valley, the Fritz Underground Winery was our favorite. Very informative staff.

Not sure exactly what it was but of all the wineries we visited this was the only one we left feeling disappointed. Just seemed cold and very sales oriented, even to the point of apparently having challenges running my credit cards (multiple) to pay for...More
