Neal's winemaker, Gove, was informative, courteous, patient (with our numerous questions) and a joy to visit with - plus, the wines were all very good - went home with the Petit Syrah, Zinfandel, Chardonnay and Cabernet! Well worth the "by appointment only" visit.

My husband loves Neal, so while in Napa, we scheduled a tasting. The winemaker gives the tour and the tasting so you can ask all kinds of questions. It is a beautiful winery, with excellent cabs.

We had a great visit. We arrived 10 minutes early from our appointed time, and had the best tasting. It was not rushed, the guy talked about anything we wanted to talk about, from the fire that happened close to Napa county to whether wineries...More

I have to agree with Bat B. We felt like we were interlopers at best. We were here three years ago, and we just thought the guy was having a bad day due to one party showing up late, and another very intoxicated. This time...More
