  • Our group stopped at Porter Creek and enjoyed the wine so much we purchased five cases. The Scotsman behind the counter has a great sense of humor and added to the fun. 
  • I have been to Porter Creek a few times and I always leave with a bottle of their "Fiona Hill" Pinot - I love it. Jonathan is ultra friendly, always upbeat. The Russian River Valley is also one of the...  read more »
  • This was our first stop on a bicycle tour of Russian River Valley on our first day in Sonoma County. There were so many varietals to taste and the host was welcoming and knowledgeable. We enjoyed list...  read more »
  • Going through Sonoma with out experiencing their wines would be a mistake. Easily one of my favorite domestic producers. I highly recommend a visit. The staff is as freindly as the wines are good and the wines are exceptional.
  • The Old Scotsman served us terrific wines. The story and style of Porter Creek wines are elegant, structured and tasty. Highly recommended.
  • Porter Creek is probably my favorite winery in Sonoma County (thus far?). I don't remember the number of times I've been, but every time has been good. Do be sure that your palate is very clear; the wines are not nearly as good (and they're usually stunning) if your palate is already busted. Jonathan and Paul in the tasting room do a very good job merging groups' conversations while keeping tastings moving at a healthy pace. They do not rush anyone, and they are both knowledgable both about the wines and life in general. The tasting room at Porter Creek is very small. At best seven people are comfortable at the tasting bar; if it is full, it's worth trying to come back for that experience. There is room to accommodate more in the tasting room itself, but the standing and waiting for pours is not as enjoyable and cuts into conversations. The carignane and Viognier are my favorite of their wines, though their new rosé is quite stunning. Definitely put Porter Creek on your list.
  • I loved this little place. It feels like you are in someone's home. Everyone is standing around a room with a kitchen sink and dollar bills and other currency stapled on every surface. The brothers of the family are very cool and down to earth. If you love port, you will love this place, especially if you are into aged port that has that yummy, musty, oakey taste. A bit expensive, though....
  • We stopped by this winery back in 2006 and bought a couple of cases of wine. It seems we have really good luck on these smaller wineries. I hoarded a bottle of their 2005 Shyrah and opened it May of 2013 - WOW it really blew my socks off I couldn't believe how bold and robust flavors it had, but, still so smooth and silky. I only wish I had bought a dozen or so cases. If you are visiting wine country, Porter Creek is a Must,We will be back their in July of 2013 for sure. Dana Bodnar Surprise, AZ
