WOODLAND TASTING | LIMITED TIME OFFERING
We are pleased to announce the highly anticipated renovation of our tasting room. Beginning in mid-November, the Tasting Room, Terrace and Salon will be shuttered to begin our tasting room remodel - a "face-lift" of sorts that will allow us to expand the interior view with floor-to-ceiling windows and finally allow us to offer our seated tasting experience indoors. During the renovations, we invite you experience elegance and luxury in nature with our Woodland Tasting, where our Chardonnay and Pinot Noir bring a kiss of sunshine to an otherwise chilly season. 

Join us in one of our intimate “Glamping Cottages” overlooking our wooded hillside dotted with madrones and majestic oaks, where you and other winery guests will enjoy tranquil sounds and sights of the living forest as you sip on Gary Farrell Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from iconic Russian River Valley vineyards. Hand-selected by our estate sommelier for their exceptional representations of our winemaking style and varietal expression, each wine is presented by an estate ambassador in this educational and intimate tasting. A fully-hosted tasting available only for a limited time ... we hope you will join us for this unique experience. Please allow 60 minutes for this tasting.

RECENT REVIEWS Trip Advisor | February 21, 2017 | 5/5 Stars “Excellent wine in a beautiful region”Of the 30 or so wineries we have tried in Sonoma, Gary Farrell has the strongest across the board line up of Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays. Their current release shows the exceptional, fruit driven range of the region. A must hit in the Russian River Valley. The only downside is that they only offer a limited number of reservations, so plan ahead! Trip Advisor | February 7, 2017 | 5/5 Stars “Magical Wine Tasting”Although Gary Farrell is under a renovation, they have substituted their beautiful tasting room with intimate and magical tasting tents with beautiful views of their property. You almost feel like you are on a wine tasting safari. The tasting is elegant and rustic at the same time, just perfect. The fur blankets and heaters ensures even the highest maintenance guest cannot complain. The wine is delicious as ever, and the staff is beyond knowledgeable but also fun. Make sure you visit before the renovation is done to experience this very unique tasting Trip Advisor | January 5, 2017 | 5/5 Stars “Best wine, great ambiance!.”My husband and I visited on the weekend to Sonoma. We were referred by a friend. The winery tasting room is actually under construction but it did not hinder our experience one bit. We sat in a semi private beautiful, heated platform tent. Having been to many wineries over the last five years, we were very impressed with the entire wine tasting experience. Our guide was very informative and pleasant and the wines were just delightful! We can't wait to go back once the wine tasting room is finished. We have become members and can't wait to open our next battle ! Yelp | October 25, 2016 | 5/5 Stars “Superb tour and history of the winery.”Superb tour and history of the winery. I really appreciated all of the details about the vineyards they choose and the processes they go through. The storage area was immaculate and you could just feel the passion that goes into creating great wines. The tasting room was top notch and I loved getting to converse with the other people on our tour, finding out what they like and where they were from. Best of all were the views from the tasting area. The weather was overcast and cool, giving it an ethereal feel. I would love to take an evening tour sometime, I'm sure that's even more breathtaking. Trip Advisor | September 15, 2016 | 5/5 Stars “The Most Beautiful View in Wine Country.”If you are looking for an amazing tasting experience that combines very special wine with an unparalleled view -- go to Gary Farrell. Perched atop a hill overlooking the Russian River Valley, this is a fantastic break from some of the busier wineries in Sonoma and Napa. Quiet, peaceful, and with amazing wine. It's a truly special place. Trip Advisor | August 24, 2016 | 5/5 Stars “Expensive, but worth it.”This is the most beautiful tasting room and terrace that I have seen. It is way up a hill overlooking the valley. It is designed for the views which are fantastic. You can sit outside or inside at the bar and taste first class wines, but take your time as you enjoy the scenery because it is expensive and you will probably need a reservation. Trip Advisor | July 11, 2016 | 5/5 Stars “Another successful wine pick up”Gary Farrell is always a great stop. I live close enough to pick up and look forward to it with each shipment. I love that I can customize my wine club shipments and have not had a problem scheduling a terrace tasting. The employees are knowledgeable and friendly. The view is spectacular and the wine never disappoints. Yelp | June 7, 2016 | 5/5 Stars “Loved all that we tried”Have visited 6 wineries / tasting rooms this week. This is the only one that I am reviewing. VIEW-unreal. Simply stunning view. WINE-loved all that we tried. Big fan of lower alcohol wines because I like to actually taste the fruit. HOST(ESS)-Lydia was fantastic. Very friendly and enjoyed conversing with her and the others. Trip Advisor | May 11, 2016 | 5/5 Stars “Tasting at Gary Farrell Winery”The tasting experience at Gary Farrell is fantastic! The tasting was beautifully laid out in a private room. And, our "host" was extremely knowledgeable, thoughtful, and accommodating. Every part of the experience was a wonderful wine journey. Unforgettable! Trip Advisor | April 3, 2016 | 5/5 Stars “It's all about the experience!”Great terrace tasting with side by side tastings of Chardonnay and Pinot. Very approachable wines and atmosphere. Some of the best views in the Sonoma area- on the terrace and in the tasting room. Worth the drive to see and experience this! Trip Advisor | February 1, 2016 | 5/5 Stars “The Best Winery by far”Gary Farrell is absolutely one of the best experiences! The staff goes above and beyond and the wine is delicious! Views for days- do not miss Gary Farrell!
