We had been to Lava Vine once before and wanted to stop in to see how things were going. Since our last visit, the von Strasser winery bought Lava Vine, and was moving its operations from Diamond Mountain over to the Lava Vine location, so there was a good amount of work going on on the property. That didn't distract... More

We arrived just as they opened and Keegan announced we must be ready for the "breakfast of champions"! We spent some time looking around speaking to Keegan about the area and drinking delicious wines. My husband and Keegan began to share musical interests, and next thing you knew, it was lunch time. He turned us on to a local taco... More

Went here after someone in another winery recommended them. The people were nice and the wines were not bad. If you like unpretentious wineries, this is a place to go. The guys there even recommended places to eat which was nice.

One of the few wineries in Napa valley where you can get tastings poured outside on a nice day. The staff is super friendly, the place has a much more laid back / hip vibe than other wineries we visited and their wines were actually really good. Absolutely worth it if you're looking for a laid-back tasting experience that doesn't... More

This tasting room was suggested by a local. We enjoyed the wines & the host ! We a got a little history on the winery as well as an idea of what's in its future. It was recently sold.

We stopped here because it was small and not a gigantic tourist trap. The two guys working obviously love their jobs and their wines . Wine was tasty, Cute doggie!!!

Of course wine is something that is very individual, each persons taste is unique, and you might not like what I do. So let's talk about the experience. The tasting room is clean, comfortable and laid back. No pressure to buy, fun and friendly host. As a matter of fact he recommended other vineyards we might like to try and... More

This place is great! I have been to many wineries in the valley and this one is a unique and fun experience... First things first, the wine! If you like fruity wines their Petite Syrah and Riesling Sweet Wine is great! Well worth to buy one bottle of each after doing their wine tasting, as in many other they will... More

We stopped at Lava Vines as our first stop on a 3 day visit to Napa. We couldn't have picked a better place to start the day. The staff, including the vintner and owner were on property. Everyone was so engaging in conversation about wine, the region, music, etc...was recently purchased by a larger owner...I hope he doesn't change a... More
