This was our first visit, and Dierdre made us feel totally welcome. The wines we tasted were expertly matched to the light foods she paired. The wines were distinctive, and the property showed beautifully. Worth your time to schedule a visit.

Wines were overpriced, tasting even more overpriced and for $35 a tasting they did not even include chocolate or crackers. I would not take my family here or visit here.

Exceeded only by the world-class wines and warm welcome Ken Simoncini and Deirdre provide to all who are lucky enough to visit. The wine cave alone is worth a special trip, as are the gorgeous grounds and of course, Daisy, the amazing wine dog! Check online to get tickets to one of their unforgettable special events, such as Festa Italiana in April, when Deirdre and Ken's cooking skills are matched with exceptional wines to create a once-in-a-blue moon experience. Definitely my favorite winery, and I live in wine country!

$35/tasting and not even a cracker! Insulting and obscene. They have a couple of good wines but not at those tasting prices. When they take you on their "tour" you'll understand why it's so costly. They need to recoup the dough they sunk into that hillside cave. Pass

We are a small family winery, where each visitor’s experience, whether a wine club member, or first time guest, is very important to us. Our Cave Tour and Tasting Experience includes a tour of a working underground winery and tasting of five vineyard-designated wines. Your group of eight was provided with a private tour of the Cave and tasted six of our vineyard-designated wines. You and your guests sampled our Chef’s delicious homemade Parmesan shortbread biscuits during your visit. Our winemaker demonstrated a punch down for your group of this year’s Late Harvest, followed by a barrel sample of that previous vintage.
Only members of our Wine Club Family receive complimentary tastings. There are no “grower’s discounts” as you requested, nor are they mandated or even suggested by the Winegrowers of Dry Creek Valley, of which you are an associate member. Tasting fees are displayed and waived with the posted purchase of wine.
Your comparison to the Napa Valley winery community as a whole seems disingenuous. Winemakers and growers truly are a community, who co-exist together for the mutual growth and respect within the wine industry.
We apologize for your perceptions and we hope that this response causes you to rethink your opinion of our winery. We welcome your return visit to our winery in the beautiful Dry Creek Valley.

We had 25 people for a food and wine pairing. Deirdre gave us a very entertaining and informative tour and the most amazing tasting experience.
The friendliness and attention were very heartwarming. The grounds and cave were absolutely beautiful. This is a must see for anyone visiting the Dry Creek area.
