Pack your picnic basket, grab your loved ones, and head out to the most beautiful spot in Dry Creek Valley.  Whether you are catching up with friends or spending time with family, there’s no simpler joy than sharing a picnic in the heart of Sonoma County’s Wine Country.  From sunlit gardens to shady riverbanks, you can have your cake and eat it too!  A variety of snacks such as cheese, charcuterie, crackers, chips, cookies and alcoholic beverages are available for purchase.  And to our cherished Club members- we look forward to welcoming you “backstage” at the Creekside Lounge.

Butterfly Garden

Visit Frequently asked questions.

May we visit with our children?

Well-behaved children are always welcome.  While in the tasting area, they must stay seated, and should be supervised when visiting other areas of the property.   We ask that children are considerate in their play so our gardens will be around for others to enjoy.

Is food available for purchase or should I bring my own?

A variety of snacks such as cheese, charcuterie, crackers, chips, chocolate, cookies and non-alcoholic beverages are available for purchase in the VML Tasting Room.  Guests are welcome to bring snacks and picnic lunches from our area restaurants and shops.  Please do not bring hard-top coolers on wheels as they don’t work well on the gravel.

Can I bring my own wine?

Of course not- we have plenty and it’s quite delicious!

Can my dog be off leash?

While we know how much you love your dog, other guests might not feel the same! Well behaved dogs are welcome outside, on a leash, and must be accompanied by a human at all times. Dogs cannot come in the tasting room unless they are bona fide service animals.

May we swim in the creek?

Not unless you are a fish or an otter.
