My go-to place in Healdsburg!

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

I visited here on a girls' wine tasting weekend. It is in a pretty setting, with plenty of space to sit outside and have a picnic. They allow you to choose the five wines you would like to taste, which I always enjoy. I ended up coming home with a bottle of their cab. All their wine was delicious and... More

Wonderful experience in a park like setting enjoying a sampling of Dry Creek wines along with a lunch from local grocery. Beautiful outdoor setting adjacent to vineyards with Ian Eddy providing detailed information on the fermentation process, wine nuances, and alot of humor. Will visit again when we make a return trip to California from Ohio.

I have purchased wines from here before and was looking forward to tastings at the vineyard. The Old Vine Zins are very nice and a must to have in your cellar.

John was very helpful in the tasting room. He spent lots of time with us, eplaining their wines and the area. Abel, in the cellar was also very helpful walking us through how they did things there.

The tasting room is pretty. Nice ambiance. But the wine is terrible. We didn't like anything until the guy brought out the reserve. Of course can only buy if join the wine club. So we did. Got our first shipment and opened our $40 cab and we were so very disappointed!! Canceled our membership immediately. Save your taste buds and... More

Thank you for your review, and we apologize for your experience at Dry Creek Vineyard. However, we’re a bit confused. We are indeed across the street from Passalacqua, however we do not make “Reserve” style wines and we have not sent a $40 Cab in any of our wine club shipments. We believe that “Reserve” is an arbitrary word that... More
