Winery
Porter Creek Vineyards is small family winery with a rich history of winegrowing based on innovation, independence, passion and respect for the land. In many respects our Estate has the feel of a property that has been unchanged by time and the glitz of the modern wine business. Yet the principles that have guided our formation are well ahead of the time, then and now: balanced wines with soul, low intervention, integrated winemaking, and stewardship of the farm and surrounding environment.

Beautiful setting, loved that it’s family owned/operated and that they live on sight, knowledgeable and friendly staff. We enjoyed the selection being poured and left with a case of 4 varietals. I highly recommend if you are looking for high quality wine in a smaller, yet beautiful setting.

Went for a wine tasting, with our 1yo and pup. Had a lovely time, the staff was very accommodating with our little one. The wine was excellent. In response to covid they've moved their tastings outside directly over looking some of the vineyard, so a beautiful view while being able to enjoy the wine and feel safe. Left with several bottles to enjoy later on.

i have nothing to add, except the addition of intermediaries such as open table and tock have made scheduling tasting experiences so unpleasant that we may discontinue a time honored tradition.

Was a wonderful visit - Jonathon is such a great tasting room manager - quite fun to chat with him and he provides just the perfect amount of info on the wines and vineyards, but not presented in a memorized way. Great spot. Highly recommend. Note: this is a winery and tasting room, - not a restaurant.

We wanted to take family from out of town on a little wine country trip. Porter Creek was our first stop, and it was such a nice start to our day. The tasting area was so lovely, and the wines we tried were great. Ended up leaving with a couple bottles that we will be enjoying over the weekend!

We had never visited Porter Creek Vineyards before. I was checking out wineries on my map of wineries in Napa and Sonoma area to visit. Our reserve tasting was handled very well. The man that assisted us on our visit was very knowledgeable about the winery and did a great job, even though he was very busy. We purchased some wine to take with us as we enjoyed our tasting.

There is no food served here, just Porter Creek wines. Its a small, rustic winery in the Russian River Valley. Its a lovely setting and wonderful staff. Definitely worth a trip.

We have gone to Porter Creek each time we've come to Sonoma since 1997. It's such an authentic, consistent, reliable and enjoyable experience. Jonathon treats guests like family and we appreciate the wines immensely. It's a rustic farm-stead experience reflective of the true roots of Sonoma wine country.

Wonderful gem of an experience around delicious wine. The farm and product are clearly lived and the story and commitment to the vines, grape, and land really made our experience authentic. We visited for our anniversary. Will go back. Stellar overall experience. Jonathan was also a wonderful guide through the experience.

We visited Porter Creek Vineyards at the recommendation of several locals while visiting the area from Florida. Jonathan was an energetic tasting guide, providing us with local details as we experienced the wine. Sitting outside enjoying the chickens, Luca and the parakeets added a nice outdoor relaxed ambiance. We’d highly recommend and will return if our travels take us back to the Healdsburg area.

What a beautiful, authentic farm-vineyard experience. We had a really wonderful time drinking exceptional wine, learning about the land and laughing and chatting with the “real people” servers here. This filled our hearts and made our trip so memorable.

Super quaint place, outside tables are nice. You can bring your own food, they do not have it onsite - we made that mistake. The Pinot Noir's were fabulous and we were so glad we stopped!

Beautiful setting and superb service from Jonathan. The wines Alex and his team are producing are top notch California wines done they way we think all wines should be done - “naturally”. These in particular are biodynamically produced and are well worth the visit. My wife and I drink a wide range of natural wines and these really captivated us. Please go and treat yourself to these amazing wines.

Jonathon is very knowledgeable. He knows his vineyards, he knows his wines, and that made for a very pleasant experience. The wines are very solid, very nice. We have been all over the Napa and Sonoma wine areas for the past 22 years and this is one of the finest experiences that we have had.
