We’d passed Russian River Vineyards on our way out to Iron Horse and decided to stop in afterwards: a lucky little stop, for sure. There was a live jazz guitarist –Jason Bodlovich – setting a relaxing tone as the sun set over the trees. His CD provided a wonderful soundtrack for our meander back into town. Two skittish puppy dogs,... More

We stopped at Russian River Winery around lunchtime and did a tasting and a cheese board. The atmosphere is what really makes this place. There is tons of outdoor seating and they had a live band playing relaxing tunes that made you feel like you were on the set of a movie. They are dog friendly and had a few... More

We had time for just one tasting experience, and we hit it right here! We had an absolutely wonderful late afternoon tasting experience thanks to Will. From his friendly welcome to his "just right" approach on wine talk (vs. not inundating us nor taking away from our "soaking it all in" socializing time), we luxuriated in the beautiful outdoor lounge...

One of the most delicious meals I have ever had: heirloom tomato salad, pork roast, and lemon cake, served outdoors on a stone patio. Accompanied, of course, with excellent wine! Staff was marvelous, food terrific, ambiance off the charts. Loved it!

We went during the week (closed on Wednesday) drawn partly because they have a restaurant. Once we saw the outdoor tasting area with comfortable seats and incredible views, we sat outside on a very nice day, tasted fine wine, enjoyed their small and pricey small plates. It was a really fun day and we spent quite a while there because... More

We stopped at this winery by chance it was one we found open after 4:00. We did the wine tasting, it was nice they came over and told us about each type and some history of the vineyard, The grounds were beautiful and they has live music at 5;00.

We had driven almost three hundred miles (heading from Paso Robles to Healdsburg) and Google Maps told us that Russian River Vineyards was one of the only places still open for a tasting and a meal. When we walked in and asked about availability for dinner, the hostess asked if we had a reservation, which we didn't, and she seemed... More

I've been there a number of times, and always head there with visiting friends and family. It's a beautiful outdoor space where you can take a walk in field, see incredible chickens, bring your dog, drink fabulous wine and eat fresh elegant food made with vegetables from their own garden, all without the hype so common in some of the...
