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

This was our first stop throughout Napa and Sonoma for a friend's birthday trip. My husband and I went in by ourselves here and ended up staying for an hour and a half, just chit chatting Rich and having some AMAZING wine. The grounds were beautiful and wine was amazing. Above all, Rich was SO knowledgable and was obviously passionate... More

We had an excellent experience. Having booked a private tour with Bob, we were given an informative overview of the vineyards history. Then, a walking tour of the nearby vineyards gave us valuable information on the clones and the different varieties of grapes. We finished with a wonderful private tasting in the barrel room with more informative descriptions and tastes... More

We love Dry Creek. The wine is to die for. We left with two bottles of the Endeavor, our sole purpose for the visit, and one bottle of the Maritage. And we joined the wine club, finally! The staff are so friendly and informative. Darren is the best! And the vineyard is absolutely beautiful. You gotta go!
