Great little tasting room near the Wine Train. Our impromtu stop before boarding the train was the best decision. The wine is great and the server is very knowledgeable and personable. We all took some wine home with us and will be back again!

We got lucky with this recommendation from TripAdvisor as we're rookies at wine tasting. Amber was very friendly and made us feel at home. Great introduction to Napa. The best one of the flight is with no doubt the Cabernet Sauvignon at $85.

Go to Gustavo if you want classic, French-style wines. Chardonnay will be unlike most in Napa, no secondary malolactic fermentation so no butter bomb, just pure expression of lovely Chardonnay. Cabernet and Merlot are also awesome and very reasonably priced. Happened to be there on...More

Take the time to visit this tasting room. For those that have seen the movie Bottleshock it will have added meaning. For those that haven't, the wine is great and the men and women behind the counter offer plenty of added value to the experience.

My wife and I had a remarkably good time here on a random stop while traveling through the area. Lots of history/story telling about the family and the region. We felt welcomed and relaxed and the wine was wonderful.

The 1976 Judgement of Paris changed the worlds view of Napa Valley Wines & the American standard of excellence. Gustavo believes great wine is equal parts, "a result of the best grapes, the best processes, & only the strongest love for the art of winemaking." We are a small family owned & operated Winery who feels as though our guests become our Family & Friends who've come to visit us while sharing a beautifully crafted Wine. Gustavo is a master of subtlety, makes wines by visualizing varietal characters to achieve terroir balance. Focusing on climatic and geographic conditions, soil composition, & berry quality. He is an old world Winemaker, & a bouquet winemaker, a balance of aroma characters to achieve the balance of taste & finish for all his wines. In the words of Gustavo Brambila himself, "Gustavo Wine is a reflection of my passion, heritage & life time love affair with wine. Winemaking is an artform & when others appreciate what I love, solidifies myself as an artist!".
