Drytown Cellars is not an “unfortunate” name for a winery! —It’s toponymous! Drytown was never “dry,” but has a long history of people determined to enjoy life while following their dreams. One of the largest towns in the foothills during California’s Gold Rush, Drytown had hotels and saloons to accommodate thousands of 49ers.

The wines are amazing. The staff is helpful and the owners are extremely friendly. The food is great and the company, even better! This place is super casual and there's not much seating so I wouldn't...

The tasting room is super cute with two bars, and then an out door area overlooking the vineyards (perfect for large groups). You can order ordered a cheese plate and a tasting for two. The wines are absolutely amazing, some light, then grow in tannins as you got to the Reds. The cheese plate paired nicely with each wine, quaint, picturesque setting. There's a pincic seating area with water noises, shade and flowers, and it's located immediately next to the vines. They give you huge pours and complementary cheese plate with bread, homemade olive...

The tasting room was more of a store with a tasting bar in it. It was a large space, but had lots of random purses and such for sale. They did though have some olive oils and vinegar for sale as well. If you aren't a member, flights are $5.00 for 4 tastings. Not too shabby compared to Napa. Good wine, friendly people, no outside food picnic policy, big crowds.

The villa toscano is the smaller sister of the Bella piazza winery . They are quite close to each other , and have a few of the same wines to offer for tasting but not exactly the same , so it is nice to visit...

With 40 acres already planted and plans to cultivate 30 more over the next five years, the Gur-Ariehs have crafted an exceptional vineyard producing world class wine grapes. The viticultural practices are aimed at producing uniformly ripe fruit throughout every vineyard block.

This is just a charming little winery in a 60's style home converted into a Tasting Room. There are no toppers on the bottles with 1 oz. pre-measured samples so your pours are rather generous - good thing they leave you pretzels to keep you standing. ...
