Views of the gorgeous Gary Farrell Winery tasting room. This was recently redone and the final result is gorgeous. The dark velvet colors are so rich yet also inviting making you want to get a glass (or two if you’re like me) of wine, curl up with friends or family soaking in the stunning views of Healdsburg the Gary Farrell Winery offers.
When I experienced the Inspiration Tasting it was actually a blogger event that I hosted with Emily Martin Events (read more here) and these lovely ladies were my guests. Talk about fun, I got to enjoy one of my favorite wineries personally and share it with a group of Bay Area bloggers!
Before starting our Inspiration Tasting we had a splash of wine on this beautiful patio taking in the spectacular views I mentioned.
We also toured the winemaking facility with the Gary Farrell team which really helps guests understand where the wine starts and what leads to the finished product (which we enjoyed right after).
The beautiful set up for the Gary Farrell Winery Inspiration Tasting. With this experience, guests enjoy 6 glasses of Pinot Noir and each Pinot has a small bite paired with it by the in-house Gary Farrell Sommeliers. They are not messing around, guests are lead through this tasting by a Sommelier sharing more about the various vineyards each Pinot Noir is sourced from, the AVA and all the interesting unique details that make each wine special in its own way.
This was my view at the head of the table and I loved it! How can you not. Amazing scenery, beautiful wines and delicious food. Heaven! When you make your appointment (as yes, appointments are necessary this is not a walk-in type of experience) be sure to tell them the JetSetting Fashionista sent you (for a little extra treat).

All smiles. Can you blame me I’m doing what I love best. Enjoying beautiful wines with excellent service in a stunning setting AND I’m sharing this with other friends and bloggers. Did I mention that I LOVE MY JOB!

Cheers to an amazing afternoon at Gary Farrell Winery. This is one of my favorite Wineries in Healdsburg for high-quality wines, excellent customer service, a beautiful setting and delicious food pairings.
