Had a fabulous time at a tasting here in late March. The wines were fabulous and I learned a lot from James our guide. Bought some red wines to take home and have not been at all disappointed!

Jo, our host, was a great storyteller. She walked us through the grapevines and gave us a base history on the valley. Each wine sample came with fantastic insight into the areas the grapes were grown.

Cakebread is on Highway 29 between Yontville and St Helena. It depends on your budget. Napa is less expensive and a few miles further. Yontville is a lovely little walking town, but more money. St Helena has fewer hotels... More
