Visit Picnic with a view.

Truett Hurst is a picture perfect place to picnic. Whether you want to hang out on our Patio, enjoy the shade in the Olive Grove, or be delighted by the animal entertainment while seated at a Picnic Table, we have lots of great spots from which to choose. And to our cherished Club members- we look forward to welcoming you “backstage” at the Creekside Lounge, where you can entertain your family and friends while relaxing in those iconic red Adirondack chairs sipping wine in the most beautiful setting Dry Creek Valley has to offer.  Access to the Estate’s picnic areas are subject to change during the Fall and Winter due to rain.  We are looking forward to your visit!

The Picnic Tables

If you are seeking some live animal entertainment during your picnic- this is your spot!  The Picnic Table area is very shaded and is located closest to the animals and just off the lawn, making it ideal for families with children and a perfect setting for family reunions. There are five tables total with seating for up to eight per table.  Please note we are not hosting Tasting Experiences at the Picnic Tables at this time, and we can only accommodate groups up to eight people including children.  Tables are spaced out and not available to be put together for larger groups at this time.  Larger groups please inquire directly to 707-433-9545.

Visit Frequently asked questions.

May we visit with our children?

Well-behaved children are always welcome, supervised by an adult at all times.  We think the best spot for guests with children is the Picnic Table area, because of its proximity to our entertaining farm animals and the Lawn.  We have machines that dispense goat food (for $.25) that can keep the little ones occupied.  We want our guests to enjoy the property, including the creek area, but the water moves quickly and it is vitally important to prohibit children from being anywhere near the creek unsupervised.  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?

Guests are encouraged to bring snacks and picnic lunches from our area restaurants and shops.  We also sell a selection of cheeses, meats, crackers, chips, and non-alcoholic beverages in the Tasting Room.  Please do not bring hard-top coolers on wheels as they don’t work well on the gravel and can damage our lawn.

Can I bring my own wine?

Don’t be silly!  No alcoholic beverages- other than ours- can be served anywhere on the Estate property.

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 can’t come in the tasting room unless they are bona fide service animals.

What precautions are you taking to ensure the safety and comfort of your guests?

Based on guidance from our area health and governmental agencies, we have designed the guest experience to ensure a safe environment for you and our team.  Please view our Health & Safety Guidelines for more information.

May we swim in the creek?

Not unless you are a fish or an otter.
