I was in Napa for an industry conference and our organization booked a tasting and sit down dinner for about 125 people at this winery. The history of this winery is amazing and the dinner, wine, and ambience were spot on. My meal was delicious and they Service was excellent. The facility was stunning and the sunset views were just... More

This is one of those places you've never heard of, that pleasantly surprises you. I went there just because I liked the name but what I found was an assortment of very good wines. It's one of those wineries that the whites are really good, the reds are really good and a couple of them are....wow....that was tasty. Nice tasting... More

Cool history and nice shop, but just didn't hit our pallet preferences. The 6-wheel Swiss-all terrain vehicle tour looked great, but wasn't open yet.

Our group of 10 had a reservation for a tasting and after some confusion about where we needed to be, we were escorted to the Library and met our wine host. She shared lots of history about the winery. Our $50 tasting included a selection of cheeses, olives, nuts and bread sticks and 5 Estate wines. Our host was very... More

This is really a lovely property on the side of a hill. Our group had a private tasting in the library. In addition to the wines there was a very nice selection of cheeses, fruit, nuts, breadsticks, etc. The family history of the place was really interesting, and our host told their stories very well. The wines themselves were just... More

We stopped in without a reservation and got a tasting. We were happy about that. The wines were good as well. However, we were rushed. The second someone was done, the server came over and expected everyone else to finish as she was pouring. Not happy about that. There was no rudeness, but it did not have that warmth about... More
