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.

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.

Ally and John were such amazing hosts. We really enjoyed our relaxed and fun tasting at Porter Creek. The views are also beautiful. This is a wonderful, small, family run winery and a completely different experience from some of the larger properties around it.

Jonathan and Crystal were both unbelievable hosts and the wines were delicious. If you're looking for a family-owned, small/boutique vineyard experience, come here! The individualized attention is superb and the stories behind each tasting are captivating. I am definitely joining the club!

Awesome 'home-town type winery. the service was great and everyone was super friendly. We liked the ambiance better than some of the more expensive wineries. The outdoor seating was perfect, with lots of space and flexibility to walk the grounds. Would highly reccomend it.

Peaceful, unpretentious and family-run little winery surrounded by beautiful mountains. The staff were so welcoming and warm, and you can tell the owner takes great pride in his humble vineyard! This place is simple and down to earth. Very refreshing to come across such a peaceful winery in the heart of wine country! Definitely encourage all to visit and support this wonderful spot.

Wonderful views to gaze at while sipping on generous pours of biodynamic wines. I loved the viognier the most and the zinfandel is lighter in body and alcohol than most fruitbombs. So pleasing to drink! The service is friendly and attentive, without being TOO attentive. Seated tastings by appointment might be the best thing that has come out of this pandemic.

It started with the perfectly blue skies, moved on to the absolutely delicious wine, then there was the fantastic care that we received from Jonathan. We look forward to visiting again, likely after our next trek to Na-PAH Valet!

Upon our arrival we were met by our server Jonathan who cleaned a table in the back, in the shade. He brought us our first wine and indicated that we should watch how much we taste since it may be lot of some of us. He explained the wine and the vineyards from which they were grown.

He gave us time to chat with our friends and did not rush us with the tasting. I should note that I ranked 5 stars for food but there was none but I did now want that ranking to lower his service.

We had a lovely tasting experience at Porter Creek. Outdoor tables are situated well apart and ours was immediately adjacent to a field of vines. The hosts were casual yet informative, allowing us to set the pace. The wines were varied and interesting. Highly recommended.

We love this vineyard. The Russian River valley is beautiful and Porter Creek is bucolic beyond words. They are by far my favorite biodynamic winery as well. A must visit.
