Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Open By Appointment Only. In the heart of the beautiful Russian River Valley, Gary Farrell Vineyards & Winery offers a proud 33-year winemaking history and a unique sense of place. Perched atop a ridge along winding Westside Road, the winery offers a spectacular view of the sweeping valley below. Gary Farrell Winery benefits immeasurably from its long-term relationships with many of the Russian River Valley's most celebrated and sought-after vineyards including Rochioli, Allen, and Hallberg to name a few. Gary Farrell Winery helped put Russian River Valley Pinot Noir and Chardonnay on the world stage, and the hallmark Gary Farrell wine style remains one of balance, elegance, texture and sense of place. Today these acclaimed wines can be enjoyed on our intimate outdoor terrace and the view from our winery completes the picture.

Gary Farrell is one of my favorite Pinot noirs from Russian River. I had driven 2200 miles from Wisconsin to visit here. As we drove up to the driveway we noticed that the tastings were by appointment only. I was very disappointed . I went up to the receptionist and she told me there were no openings for tasting. She was very polite and offered to sell us a bottle that we could drink on the patio. It was a beautiful view and the wine was fantastic. It was very hot outside but the receptionist kept our wine cool inside. I was able to purchase wine there too. A nice alternative.

My wife and I did the East meets West wine tasting experience and it was fantastic! We were able to taste and tour Gary Farrell, Copain and Arista. I'd love to do it again!

I think we've fallen in love with the Russian River valley area and Gary Farrell is the pinnacle of this beautiful style of pinot noir and Chardonnay. We had a wonderful time and they were very friendly and accommodating since we were running late and even gave us a quick tour of harvest in action. That was really neat! Loved pairing the wine with local cheese and snacks that really brought the wine out to play. We enjoyed the wines so much we became members. Definitely a must see! The new tasting room is beautiful with great views.
