If you're used to Napa or Sonoma be prepared, this is different. First, it's huge. The wines are interesting -- flavored sparkling wines and a few blends. But as big as it is, it's very friendly and welcoming.

My husband and I have been to Wilson Creek several times and always had a good experience. Thanks especially to the wine techs who gave my 3 kids a mini fieldtrip experience to check out the barreling process! They loved it! Grounds are beautiful as always, even with some renovation happening, and it was nice to buy a delicious glass... More

Wilson Creek Winery has good views, a great indoor enclosed (with heaters) and outdoor patios for dining. Although there were few wine tasters on this chilly day, our lunch was delicious and the winery was alive with bottling outside. The lunch portions are amble and the appetizer and the dessert tasted were excellent.

We really enjoyed this winery with its old world atmosphere and generous pours at the tasting room. The sparkling almond, peach bellini, and orange mimosa were delicious, but I am a sweet wine lover. My husband prefers dry so he purchased a red zinfandel. The little cracker puffs they serve for palate cleansing are yummy little shortbread like treats. Staff... More

My wife and I visited on New Year's day. It is a very pretty place with nice exterior courtyard and a very nice tasting area. Plenty of staff there to help you taste and pick out a wine that suits your palate. We rated this winery as 4 rather than 5 only because we found the red wines we sampled... More

I was a member at Wilson Creek for 6 months. 6 months was too long to be a member. What a disappointment. Always wine was okay, overly crowded, rude staff. During my visits I would ask for the wine crackers. I was denied. I was okay with two denials. But the third wine crackers denial I reported it to the... More

We visited a couple of months ago, for the second time. Just as delightful as our first visit!. The meal was delicious and of course the wine was most enjoyable. Managed to get some bottles safely back across the Atlantic which we drunk over the Christmas holiday. We are now planning our next trip to USA around our visit to... More

Our family of 9 enjoyed a nice lunch at the Wilson Winery. Despite being a rainy day the outdoor patio was warmed with heaters and cozy. The food was good, but not as spectacular as it was when we were here a few years ago. The venison was slightly overcooked and a bit dry. The waiter forgot our daughter's chicken... More

Wilson Creek has long been one of my favorite wineries, however on this particular visit I was a little disappointed. The Winery was overly crowded, there was no real opportunity to visit with friends and family, the wine was good, but I've found other years to be better. Still a must see, but I hope my next visit is better.

My wife and I are wine club members and go there quarterly. Sometimes we bring a sandwich and sit outside enjoying the music. It has a great vibe. I highly recommmend it
