GARY FARRELL VINEYARDS &WINERY: INTIMATE EXPLORATION EXPERIENCE
Semi Private hosted tasting of 5 single vineyard Chardonnay and Pinot Noir | Immersive Winery Tour | Expertly paired cheeses
Beginning in the late 1970s, Gary Farrell was working with seminal Russian River Valley vintners such as Davis Bynum, Joe Rochioli, Tom Dehlinger and Robert Stemmler – a group that was instrumental in showcasing the world-class Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays of the nascent Russian River Valley AVA, a breathtaking, redwood-studded wine region 55 miles north of San Francisco whose mighty river cuts a scenic swath through the heart of Sonoma County. He made his first wine under the Gary Farrell label in 1982 and built the winery into one of the most acclaimed producers of smalllot Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays in the Russian River Valley.
Your journey begins with an immersive tour through their winery and cellar, covering their winemaking approach from grape to glass. You will then enjoy a hosted tasting of five single vineyard, small production wines, each paired with a specific cheese. This is a wonderful presentation of all that makes Gary Farrell a “Grand Cru” of the Russian River Valley.
