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.

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.

Love the laid back feeling at Porter Creek Vineyards. Jonathan explained the wines, was very engaging, yet gave us time alone also. I highly recommend this winery if out tasting in the Russian River region.

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.

Had to rate food, although we didn’t have any as this was purely a wine tasting. Had there been food, I’m sure it would have been great also. Ally wins for best tasting room experience provider of all time. We had an amazing time with her and enjoyed the amazing Pinot noirs, Chardonnay, and Viognier! Highly recommended for folks who want great single vineyard wines, from a real small, family run, old-school Russian River farm that happens to make great wine. If you want boujie, go to Napa, this is the real real. :)

Ally was a terrific server. The wine was delicious. Sitting out at the vineyard table was awesome. We didn’t have any food but the app wouldn’t give me the option to say that. I do not know if they even have food. But the wines were very good and the server was very accommodating and informative.

First, the wines a great and so is the value. Setting is quintessential west Sonoma county… trees, vineyards and a breeze. One of my favorite tasting spots as a local. I’ve yet to taste a wine here that I didn’t like. You will enjoy your time here.
Bring a picnic. They only offer wine tasting.
