We made a last minute reservation, and were able to taste in a very relaxed setting in a building separate from the tasting room on Rutherford Road. We really enjoyed the different varietals offered, although we always lean toward Cabernet Sauvignon. The staff was excellent, and very knowledgeable about the wine being poured.

We stumbled upon this cute winery by accident and were so glad we did! We were greeted like family the second we walked though the door. Tracy was wonderful, sitting down on the fireplace next to us while explaining every aspect of their wine list..we felt like we were in someone's living room and not a business. Kathy even came...

ES is one of my favorite wineries in Napa. It's not cheap but it has some of the best wines in Napa. Customer service is amazing!

Friends mentioned Elizabeth Spencer Winery at a party when they learned we'd be in CA for Christmas. Then when our host at a nearby winery said this was a great place to visit, we knew it was meant to be. The tasting was lovely. Our host very welcoming and professional. When we couldn't push our lunch at Rutherford Grill back,... More

We had driven by this vineyard numerous times and never gave them a second look. However, we heard from three separate groups of locals that this was a nice find and they were right.

We visited 13 wineries in our five days here and this was one of our favorites. Kathy was an amazing hostess and shared so much information regarding the winery and the wine. We sampled five wines and loved every one, which did not happen at another winery. We returned later in the day, had great service from Geremy, bought another... More

This was our first stop on our winery tour in Napa. My wife and I prefer sweeter wines, and still very much enjoyed our tasting. We opted for the charter tasting. Even the Merlot was tasty! The scenery was beautiful; we had a view of several Meyer lemon trees. The next day, we went back just to purchase a bottle!... More

Our second stop of the day was spent at Elizabeth Spencer. We had Levi as our guide, and he was fantastic. We were scheduled for an hour, but stayed for two as he educated us about the wines and the valley. I preferred other locations more, as the courtyard where you taste the wine is next to a moderately busy... More

Levi was AWESOME! He taught us so much about wine and where the different grapes grow in Napa and Sonoma. Loved that he even brought out maps to help demonstrate his point. You could tell he loved his job and knew what he was talking about. Even though we aren't big on wine, he still took time to chat with... More
