    Mel at Raymond and is the BEST!
    Mel was AMAZING!!! This was an impulse stop while we were in Napa and it was far and away our favorite spot in Napa. We did the Cabernet tasting in the Crystal Room. She explained the whole process of wine making and gave us a sneak peek of the red room. Wish I had known of the wine makers option before we came. Totally would have done that experience! So happy we decided to stop. LOVE these Cabernets and truly the best experience we had with on our trip!!!
    Thank you for the 5-star review! I'm pleased to hear Mel was amazing and that you loved our Cabernets. We are honored to be your favorite spot in Napa. We look forward to hosting you in the future. Paul DeGuzman Tasting Room Manager | Raymond Vineyards

    Paul was Amazing - So was Raymond Vineyard (and we love the wines as well!)
    Paul from Raymond was a great host and took extra time to explain the wines/valley to us. Couldn't recommend him more! The Winery was unlike any others that I have experienced, with both great wines and a very unique/fantastic setting. The highlight for me was seeing the differences in the soil composition while my wife loved the "red room" - Thank you Paul for taking such good care of us!
    Dear Thomas. Thank you for the 5-star review! I'm pleased to hear about Paul being such a great host and your appreciation for what makes our winery unique. We look forward to hosting you in the future. Paul DeGuzman Tasting Room Manager | Raymond Vineyards

    "Cheers for 50 Years"
    We had as our host Paul for "cheers for 50 years". He was tremendous with his insight on the regions that produced the wines, what we were tasting, and ideas on how the red(s) paired. He had great background for the wines/winery, and history behind the valley. Highly recommend.
    Dear Robert. Thank you for the 5-star review! I'm pleased to hear about the excellent service provided by Paul and the tremendous insight into the wine and region he provided during your visit. We look forward to hosting you in the future. Paul DeGuzman Tasting Room Manager | Raymond Vineyards

    A champion of wineries: excellent service, gorgeous wines and the most unique decor I’ve ever seen
    I can’t say enough about this place, WOW!!! Out of all the wineries I’ve been to in the valley, this is the most unique of them all. The decor is very much in moulin rouge theme and has bright colors, flashy and catchy art and interesting pieces everywhere, not to mention that the wine and service was unparalleled. If you’re looking for your new favorite red wine spot to have fun and relax with your friends, this is it hands down. We were greeted by Paul who gave us a tour of the winery detailing all the history and really giving us a beautiful glimpse into the Raymond legacy. He was a fantastic host! After this, we were seated in the Crystal room (it’s so sci-fi steampunk and beautiful in the beast with the chandelier, very whimsical) and had our tasting. This is by far these were the best Cabernet Sauvignons we’ve had: full of body ans with luscious complexity. Each varietal was unique and really very good. The color on all the wines were a deep gorgeous deep ruby and the deep flavors of black currant, dark cherry and blackberry with a beautifully balanced touch of spice, cocoa and a very well balanced oak presence. Genuinely these were 10/10. Lily was our server and she was an absolute vibe, not to mention she did a wonderful job answering all our questions and making sure we had more wine. :) There was also an African American gentleman who was behind the bar that was very attentive and helpful who deserves recognition as well (I’m sorry I don’t remember his name :( ). Overall Raymond has such a singularly whimsical decor theme and along with the wine being fantastic with top notch service, I’d say it’s a real winner. We can’t wait to come back :D
    Thank you for choosing our winery to visit on Mother's Day. We appreciate the perfect 5-star review and for pointing out what makes our property so unique in addition to our great wines. I'm pleased you enjoyed the tour I provided and to hear about the excellent service provided by your host Lily and Robert as well. We look forward to hosting you in the future.

    Fun Wine Tasting
    We were in Napa Valley for a couple of days and visited several wineries. We did not know about the reservation requirement at wineries, until we were informed by the visitor’s center in Napa. We took a chance and just drove up to Raymond Vineyards and they welcomed us and said we could do a tasting. Lily Rust made our experience phenomenal! She answered all our questions. She was so kind and informative. Before we started the tasting, I apologized that we would have to do a quick pre check in for our flights the next day on our phones. She was able to get the tasting wrapped up in an hour, allowing us to do our check in. She let us tour areas inside of the winery. Lily and the other serve Amy were fun to talk to and we really enjoyed the tasting. We walked the beautiful grounds after our tasting. Highly recommend Raymond Vineyards!
    Thank you very much for the endorsement and 5-star review. I'm pleased to hear about the phenomenal experience provided by Lily Rust and the hospitality of Amy. We look forward to hosting you again in the near future. Paul DeGuzman Tasting Room Manager | Raymond Vineyards

    Unique and Memorable Wine Tasting Tour
    Our group of three couples totally enjoyed the unique tour of Raymond Vineyards. Paul Cain our guide was professional, very knowledgeable and made the experience fun. We were not rushed at all and had many opportunities for picture takes with some of the unique exhibits inside the winery.
    Thank you very much for the 5-star review.

    Raymond and their staff are worth it
    Raymond was our 7th winery this week, and it was well worth including. So far, every winery experience has been very different, but Raymond was the quirky one. We did the Crystal Cellars tasting, and the wine was fine (and the ‘08 cab was very good). But what made our experience was the staff. After getting a walkthrough and the history of Raymond (which was very interesting), we were taken to the Crystal Room and introduced to Lily. Lily was awesome. In addition to our wine flight, she added a Zin, and because of our anniversary, a really good champagne. But the best part - she was a lovely person, and we spent quite a bit of time talking about things other than wine. Says a lot about Raymond that they have people like Lily. She’s a delight, and we look forward to visiting again.
    Dear Thomas, Thank you for the 5-star review and taking the time to recognize Lily for the excellent service she provided as well as the quirkiness/uniqueness of our property. I'm pleased she did something special for your anniversary. We look forward to hosting you again in the near future. À bientôt! Paul DeGuzman Tasting Room Manager | Raymond Vineyards

Recently visited Raymond taking some out-of-state family. My wife and I have been members for several years and are never disappointed.

This visit in particular really stood out. The folks there are always friendly and knowledgeable, but Che took care of us this time and really took it to the next level. She had a great personality and really worked to personalize the visit for our group. She told us everything about the wine , history and process. She then poured us a glass and took us on an impromptu tour to show off the unique aspects of the winery to family members that had never been there.

WONDERFUL experience and Che's added touch made it a very personalized experience!

On a recent trip to the Napa Valley was I surprised to learn that reservations are typically required for the tasting of wines. Of the 10 wineries visited over two days (July 3 & 4) only Raymond Vineyards accepted "walk-ins" for tasting. We were provided seven wines for tasting (more than usual since we were the only couple at the winery). Excellent conversation with the host. The tasting was outdoors in an extensive garden. There is also nearby a "Theater of Nature" offering a pleasant walk with flowers and vegetables.

We visited Raymond Vineyard for the first time even though we have been a fans for decades. From the moment we walked in, the Baccarat Chandelier & the Black Hat mannequin set the tone, then Amy hosted the tasting and the touring of the Artsy, extremely tasteful rooms to match their wines.
We can’t wait to go back and try their WineMarker of the Day.
The vineyard, the staff and the wines make this a MUST SEE & TASTE destination when visit St Helena!

On Saturday, our group of six tasted in the Crystal Cellar room with Ryan. We had made an appointment a few weeks prior and were very excited for our visit. Ryan took our tasting experience from what would have been good to absolutely amazing. He was friendly, funny and incredibly knowledgeable. He gave us a wonderful tour of the property and even snapped a few photos of us in the Red Room. We had such a great time. Thank you Ryan!!! We will definitely be back.

Our Sunday Funday at Raymond Vineyards was a blast! We wrapped up our outdoor adventures with a visit to the garden, snapping pics with the cute animals. Then, we headed inside and were greeted by the super-friendly Robert. Paul D took over, making our tour and tasting nothing less than spectacular. After seeing the map room, we got walked over to the main tasting room with music playing, and crazy mannequins to look at, after sipping some wine we ended up in the epic Red Room. Paul had convinced us to become members with his knowledge of the wine, and the overall experience. It is also cool because you get access to other wineries and tasting rooms when you get a Raymond Wine Club Membership. Paul was a champ, explaining the wines while keeping it fun. We had a great time throughout the whole experience.

I gotta shout out the LVE Chardonnay—it surprised me! Left with three bottles; it's gonna be my go-to for sunny days. The vibe was chill, and the experience was top-notch. Cheers to Raymond Vineyards for an awesome time! Great Staff & service. I look forward to opening my frenchie wine soon!
