First: call ahead to arrange a tasting. Second: know that after you show up, you can walk 100 feet to R & D Kitchen to have a great meal afterwards--you'll need it.
This place is comfortable. Nice, bright, open. Plenty of local art for sale around the entire building. Then you get a fairly private table. Megan was our server/wine connoisseur. We had 5 wines to chose from. Also, water, a 'spit bucket', mixed nuts, crackers (loved this) and local cheeses (I'd do back just for the cheese!) were provided.
Megan took the time to explain the wines and what made each special. She also went off the path a bit and had us to a side by side comparison a couple time and also provided us a port style wine at the end to try. I think our glasses were 1/3 full so we got a bit tipsy at the end. If you are really into wine, use the 'spit bucket'--otherwise enjoy the buzz! Megan also had some great stories about the wines and local stories about Napa. She also showed us a 3D map of the region and where the grapes were grown.
We left with a couple bottles of wine. You'll pay around $80 a person for the tasting. We thought for what we received, it was a great experience. Keep in mind, my wife and I are not wine or alcohol drinkers in any way and this was our first experience. So if you are new like us, it's a great value. I guess if you are experienced and do this a lot--hopefully it also fits your palette on value.
Advice: drink the wine first--then cleanse your palette with water and crackers--then eat the cheese and keep some in your mouth before the wine. There is a difference. Also, walk around the place and look at the art after having some wine. And put your phones down--you won't need them here :)
