RECENT REVIEWS Trip Advisor | April 16, 2016 | 5/5 Stars “first ever visit”dropped by on a rainy sunday with no reservation, and they were kind enough to let us in. we spent an hour or so in tasting and talking, really enjoying the woman who hosted us (Lisa?) who was friendly, very knowledgeable and not pushy at all. we'd heard much about the wines and the vineyard, but had never visited, and ended up joining their club so we can enjoy wines year-round. it was a great weekend memory in Sonoma/Russian Rivery Valley. Trip Advisor | April 16, 2016 | 5/5 Stars “Weather not a challenge”Although it rained a good part of our visit it didn't matter because the luncheon was fantastic & the wines were excellent. It stopped raining when we were ready to leave. Had a great time. Trip Advisor | April 15, 2016 | 5/5 Stars “Wine Tasting at Gary Farrell Winery”The winery is in a breathtakingly beautiful setting, high up on a hill. The day was sunny and warm, so we opted for an outdoor terrace tasting. Our selections included Chardonnays, Pinot Noirs and Zinfandels, paired with excellent cheeses, fruits, and nuts. Everything was delicious, and our hostess, Lisa, was superb. Trip Advisor | April 15, 2016 | 5/5 Stars “Drinking wine was heavenly”The views are spectacular from atop the hillside. The views offered were amazing; you feel like you are removed from the rest of the world. We made a reservation for our visit, and the team at Gary Farrell took outstanding care of us. They had a personalized greeting with our name on the tasting menu and we felt special right off the bat. The service that was provided was attentive and friendly. The pace of the servings was just right which allowed us to enjoy the wine, surroundings, and complimentary nuts and cheese. Overall a memorable experience. Trip Advisor | April 15, 2016 | 5/5 Stars “Wonderful Experience”There is nothing like stopping by for a Terrace Tasting of Gary Farrell's delicious Chardonnays, Pinot Noirs and Zinfandels. Truly delicious....every one of them. The attention to detail, personalization and lovely setting make this a very special, amazingly tasty time. Trip Advisor | April 15, 2016 | 5/5 Stars “Amazing wine tasting”We visited on Easter Sunday and were a bit late for our appointment. We were greeted in a professional manner despite our tardiness and seated at one of the table near the vista. Wines were served in a paced yet relaxing manner. Our party settled in and took in the views and the wines - what a treat. We overstayed by a bit which was no issue with the staff. I highly recommend a visit to Gary Farrell. Trip Advisor | April 15, 2016 | 5/5 Stars “Beautiful view, beautiful wines, and beautiful employees”I went with a friend and we had an amazing time! The wine was amazing and they were very knowledgeable. I will definitely visit the next time I am in the area.

Their wine club membership is a great way to enjoy Gary Farrell wines year round. Trip Advisor | October 8, 2015 | 5/5 Stars“Always a delight!”Any reason to go to Gary Farrell is a good one, but you should consider making it your only stop if you want to try many stellar wines all in one place! I've visited for pleasure and for work and always leave delighted (and with wine - of course). Also, if Emery is there you're in for another special treat. She's as informative as she is bubbly - love her happy personality! Looking forward to my next visit! Yelp | August 17, 2015 | 5/5 Stars“This place is amazing!”This place is amazing!

Trip Advisor | August 3, 2015 | 5/5 Stars “Top Quality Wines and Tasting Room Experience”Gary Farrell is an excellent winery with a good tasting room with knowledgeable hosts. Though production is relatively limited, you can purchase wine at the tasting room. Worth a visit.
