We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Greg, who taught us so much about the grape-growing and wine-making process. For a non-drinker married to someone who appreciates wine, this was the perfect mix of tour and tasting. And what a value- $25 for a 90min tour and tasting. Make a reservation now to visit Cakebread Cellars!

Who knew Cake Bread had so much history? Besides the fabulous wine, the grounds are amazing as well!

My first mudding was much more enjoyable than I thought it would be. Thick mud you float in. Hot sulfuric heat and smells followed by a shower then jacuzzi to thoroughly clean out your body parts Very relaxing and you leave feeling like a sponge. A really nice experience and

I remember visiting Cakebread Cellars when the "tasting room" was little more than a shack on the side of Highway 29 (and so was another favorite Sequoia Grove next door). The good news is that while Cakebread has certainly gotten much bigger over the years, the wine has remained a focus and it shows. An excellent list of varietals and... More

Cakebread is known for their chardonnay. This was a great experience to taste their other offerings. Our hostess, Erika, was amazing. Her knowledge and personality made this a delightful experience. This tasting was done surrounded by casks...such fun to see a different setting. Super small and cozy!

I love Cakebread wine. But, their tasting experience was below par, and the least enjoyable our recent wine tasting trip. The staff was very unenthusiastic and simply going through the motions. Tastings are experiential not just about pouring wine in a glass. Cakebread was not enjoyable. We left halfway through the tasting.

Cakebread is pretty reasonable and has a nice tasting format. You can do a basic tasting for 15/person. Rather than cramming around tasting bar, they walk you around the property through the cellar, gardens, vineyard, etc and give you pours with commentary along the way. They are probably best known for whites and the two chards are pretty good. Wasn't... More

My husband and I enjoyed a tour of Cakebread Cellars today with Alissa as our tour guide. We enjoyed our tastings outside on the patio since weather was beautiful. Our favorite wine here was the Sauvignon Blanc! Small beautiful Winery!!

Our tour guide James was very knowledgable and friendly. We learned a lot of great stuff that we could use our whole trip in Napa. The wine was also great that we made another stop our last day to bring back more. A must see for good wine and information.
