My husband and I made a reservation for a tasting at Pride Mountain because of the high ratings given by tripadvisor reviewers. The winery, the caves and the location are all just beautiful. We were so surprised that just the "tasting only" came with a wonderful tour of the caves, a barrel tasting and an education on the terroir of their different vineyards. We enjoyed the staff and the wines so much that we plan to go back and sign up for the full tour and tasting on our next visit!

Without question this is one of the better wineries to visit. No crowds - by invitation only and is on Spring Mountain outside St Helena so has gorgeous views. Very relaxed but thorough tour and the tasting is on your way from barrel to barrel through the wine cellars dug into the mountain. Good variety of wines to taste and buy all grown on the mountain on their lands. If you buy some wine the tasting fee of $10 is waived.

Every time I go to Napa in the future I will always make sure to go to Pride!

On our trip to Napa Valley for my birthday, my wife and I heard about Pride Mountain Winery from a fellow hotel guest. We decided to venture up Spring Mountain to check it out. Our visit to Pride Mountain Vineyard turned out to be our favorite winery visit during our 4 day stay in Napa Valley. The setting is fantastic as you ascend the steep mountain road through a beautiful forest. The trip itself is an adventure. The winery is absolutely beautiful sitting on top of a mountain surrounded by other mountain peaks. We met Jay Herbert for our tour and tasting and were overwhelmed by his infectious attitude and love for the winery and his job. The tour/tasting in the wine caves was an education and a nice touch. The Cab and Syrah wines are exquisite and we purchased the wine at the end of our tour. Do yourself a big favor and visit this winery. The people there love what they do and it shows in their wine as well as the smile on their faces.

This winery is more than worth the trip up the mountain road. The setting is lovely (you will pass Schweinger Winery as well). Although we didn't have an appointment, the owner was able to fit us into the 3:30 tour. The group had about 8 people total. Our guide told us a little about the history of the winery and it's ownership. We sampled a couple wines - and then it was off to the caves to tour and sample the rest. The cave is very pretty with candlelighting along the path (as well as overhead lighting) The guide was informative and friendly. We enjoyed this tour so much more than the big winery tours. The wine is wonderful and well-named (although Pride is actually the name of the family owning the winery) There are so many wineries in the area - Don't miss this one!

Great experience, great location. Beautiful drive up the hill, under trees.
Excellent guide, excellent Cabernet and Viognie. Interesting presentation about
all kinds of things that influence how a wine comes out.
