I am putting this review up mainly because of the poor one that I just read. Obviously this person doesn't know that the wineries primarily charge for tastings because they want to discourage people from cruising the valley in search of a cheap way to get drunk.
That aside, we love Franciscan! We are locals but only moved here in April of 2011. Prior to that we had had Franciscan's Magnificat with good friends at New Years. So when we found the winery we were very excited. Yes if you go when its busy in Napa you may have to wait a while to get served and yes the servers do get overwhelmed -- so go in with realistic expectations.
We belong to their wine club which entitles us to free tastings and invitation to special events. Everyone who works there has been super friendly too! I strongly recommend that you visit this winery when in Napa!
