DaVero Farms & Winery is a destination like no other.
Our certified Biodynamic® farms are home to olive groves, vineyard, fruit trees, bountiful produce, as well as chickens, sheep, and pigs. Our realization that this is a Mediterranean climate has led us to focus exclusively on Italian grape and olive varietals, and the results are utterly delicious.
We encourage you to experience DaVero in person by visiting our winery just outside Healdsburg, California at 766 Westside Road , in the heart of Sonoma County’s legendary Dry Creek Valley.
We think it’s more interesting – and more fun – when you learn while you’re enjoying the bounty of our farm, so we offer a range of experiences that you can tailor to your wishes.

Here’s the upcoming calendar – if you’d like to participate, pleaseor call us at (707) 431-8000.
We’ve learned over the years that the best experiences happen when we’re able to spend quality time with each visitor so we can explain what we do, and why and how we do it.
To make that possible, all of our tastings are by appointment. There’s quite a range, so look through the options below and pick the one that fits!
Most of our tastings are private — a member of our team is dedicated exclusively to you. But if you’d like to join a group tasting, we offer “Taste DaVero” twice each day (11am and 2:30pm) on a first-come basis.
Making a reservation is the best way to make sure you get the experience you want, as we’re very small and our facilities are limited (we don’t even have a tasting room). But you can always call us, or even swing by, to see if we have something last-minute.
For our guests that are looking for a more in-depth and private tasting experience, we have created Discover the Farm. This intimate tasting experience will begin with an exploration of estate vineyards and gardens while discussing our biodynamic farming practices, and an introduction to our farm animals. After our tour, we'll sit down together in one of our private tasting rooms for a focused tasting of six of our highly allocated wines, two estate olive oils, and our imported 15-year aged balsamic vinegar. Each wine will be complemented with seasonal food pairings consisting of artisan cheeses, locally sourced charcuterie, and fruits. Discover the Farm can accommodate groups up to six and will approximately take ninety minutes for this elevated experience.
Please Note: Fees are charged per person; tastings may not be shared. Club DaVero members will receive their club saving based upon club level.
There is much more to DaVero than the average visitor will see. That is why we created the most intimate and in-depth way to explore our farms, the Farm to Bottle experience. This Biodynamic, farming-focused tasting starts by bringing guests to the Home Farm where the vision for DaVero began 35 years ago. At the Home Farm, we will tour the olive groves, estate vineyards, and gardens while learning about our reliance on natural farming.
The tour continues to the winery property, where we'll explore the vineyards and gardens, discuss Biodynamic farming, and introduce you to our farm animals. Then, we'll sit down together in our private boardroom within the winery flower gardens for a focused tasting of our best wines, olive oils, and a seasonal charcuterie plate. This experience will show you how passionate farming methods translate to the finished bottle on your table. We strongly recommend wearing close toed shoes for this experience.
Please contact the winery for group requests larger than 4 or if you would prefer a time other than 12:30. firstname.lastname@example.org or call 707-431-8000 x1

The Collector’s Tour
Guests of this curated day trip along the famed Russian River & Dry Creek Valleys have the opportunity to experience three producers of extremely limited age-worthy wines ranging from single vineyard Pinot Noir to classic Italian varietals and on to Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux inspired blends. The wines from Gary Farrell Winery, DaVero Farms & Winery and Lambert Bridge Winery are some of the most cellar worthy selections in the region and this is a limited opportunity for collectors to choose wines that have the potential to age five, 10 or even 20 years in their personal cellars.
10:30am Arrive at Gary Farrell Winery
Guests begin their experience high above the Russian River as the morning fog quietly burns off to reveal one of the best views in wine country. Inspired by both the view and the legacy that iconic winemaker Gary Farrell has bestowed upon their property, current winemaker Theresa Heredia and Estate Sommelier Kevin Patterson have put together a very unique tasting experience.
“A taste journey through California’s finest Pinot Noir Vineyards”
Our efforts are complete when nature, science and passion combine to become art in the glass. The Inspiration Tasting is a curated flight of vineyard-designate wines, including library vintages and special limited-production bottlings. Personally hosted in The Inspiration Room by an Estate Sommelier, this shared educational experience features six highly allocated releases of single vineyard Pinot Noir, highlighting the elegance, balance and natural acidity that is our winemaking hallmark. This wine flight is served with three “impeccable pairings” that reflect both the versatility of our wines and the bounty of Sonoma County, prepared by Chef Didier Ageorges.

12:30 Arrive at DaVero Farms & Winery
Founding owners Ridgely Evers and Colleen McGlynn began DaVero with a simple idea in mind; create a farm that is agriculturally, ecologically, and economically sustainable. Starting with imported Tuscan olive trees, DaVero’s reputation grew through its award winning extra virgin olive oil. After a decade of farming olives, they began exploring possibilities with wine grapes. Being farmers first, inspiration came from California’s unique Mediterranean climate, and the decision was made to farm grapes solely from that region. With an old-world winemaking approach, the resulting wines are balanced, full-bodied, classically food-friendly, and truly age-worthy. With a very limited production of only 4,000 cases across almost 20 wines, there is a lot to taste, see, and learn while visiting DaVero.
PRIVATE FARM TOUR & TASTING
This intimate experience includes a private guided tour of the winery property where you will explore flower and vegetable gardens, vineyards and olive groves, all while learning about the history and philosophy of this certified Biodynamic family farm. Guests will enjoy an owner-led focused tasting of DaVero’s age-worthy single-vineyard and estate Italian varietal wines and olive oils accompanied by a seasonal lunch.
