Owner 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.

“Wow, what a view!”
Reviewed 11 April 2012

Great wines, but expensive. The view is worth the trip, though. It looked just like Tuscany on the day we visited. Layers of hills in mist and shadow. I'll bet it is gorgeous on sunny day.

“Best View in Dry Creek Valley”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

You simply cannot go wine tasting in Sonoma without visiting Gary Farrell. The tasting room has the best view of any winery in the County without a doubt. The wine speaks for itself and the hosts are so accommodating and friendly.

“Great Wines, Great Views & Brad...”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

For a gorgeous Sonoma experience, Gary Farrell Winery is a must!
Beautifully appointed facilities, some of the best wines you will taste in Sonoma and the attentive and genuine care of Brad with his expertise not only of his wines but also the area.

Treat yourself to Gary Farrell's 2008 Hallberg Vineyard - Dijon Clones Pinot Noir....especially if you want to impress your date.

Beautiful large tasting room with wonderful ambiance and great views overlooking the valley.
Staff were friendly and knowledgable about wine. We decided to share a glass for tasting and were pleasantly surprised that the pours were generous. Wonderful wines.
