Description:

Open By Appointment Only. In the heart of the beautiful Russian River Valley, Gary Farrell Vineyards & Winery offers a proud 33-year winemaking history and a unique sense of place. Perched atop a ridge along winding Westside Road, the winery offers a spectacular view of the sweeping valley below. Gary Farrell Winery benefits immeasurably from its long-term relationships with many of the Russian River Valley's most celebrated and sought-after vineyards including Rochioli, Allen, and Hallberg to name a few. Gary Farrell Winery helped put Russian River Valley Pinot Noir and Chardonnay on the world stage, and the hallmark Gary Farrell wine style remains one of balance, elegance, texture and sense of place. Today these acclaimed wines can be enjoyed on our intimate outdoor terrace and the view from our winery completes the picture.

We arrived at Gary Farrell unaware that they were under construction and only tasting by appointment. They were very gracious and accommodated our group and set us up for a private tasting in one of their temporary tent cabins, which was quite lovely. Pier was the host for our tasting and he was perfect, walking us through Chardonnay and Pinot... More

We were running late but our gracious host Dominic was waiting to take care of us. He had a fantastic tent-cabin set up for us and proceeded to share the awesome wines. We loved the chance to compare and contrast the different varieties and we ended up buying several bottles in addition to our new wine club purchases. Can't wait... More

I thought the wine tasting was informative and never felt rushed. The wine was excellent and we ended tasting other wines not on the schedule. The tent was intimate, but I'm sure when the tasting room is finished it will offer a much better experience.

My wife and I visited in March for a woodland tasting and had a great time. Our host conducted the tasting in such a way to make all of us at the tasting to evaluate the wines amongst ourselves before he shared the thoughts of the winery on the flavor profiles. This was a great way to taste and develop... More

The service here was beyond terrible. The staff were flat out rude and unaccommodating, which is not what you want when you drive all the way out to a winery and pay good money. I will be taking my business elsewhere from now on.

We very much appreciated the professional attention provided during our visit. The young lady who addressed us on our visit was most knowledgeable of your product. In great detail she explained the breath of your assortment......her personality was delightful!

We had over an hour to sit down, relax and taste 6 wines. I loved that we got to compare 3 chardonnays and then 3 Pinot Noirs. All were amazing. Our Sommelier was very knowledgeable, a great teacher and was patient with all our questions.
