We have visited this winery when the gardens were dotted with beautiful statues. The statues are gone and the focus has changed to the wine. Their wines are excellent and their staff is friendly & helpful. Their reds are mostly blends which have been aged over a year in french oak. They are pouring wines that are very drinkable now;...

This wasn't the best winery for a first time wine tasting experience. Took my stepson for his first wine tasting experience. It wasn't the best because of the price and the attitude of the staff. The wines were good but a bit pricey for my taste. Perhaps better for people with better palates and bigger wallets. Not a big fan... More

We were attracted to this vineyard because we have had its wines in the past, but we were also intrigued by descriptions of the Princeton post-modernist architect Michael Graves’ design of the winery.  Asked to build a “temple to wine and art” by the owners Jan and Mitsuko Shrem, Graves chose a commanding structure of tall pillars and towering archways in...

A couple we spoke to at Cuvaison Estate Wines in Carneros recommended checking out Clos Pegase Winery, and we did so on our way back to Napa. Although they spoke of the artwork and architecture, our visit was late in the day and we didn't really check that out very much. We headed straight to the tasting room, stopping briefly... More

What a wonderful first experience at a vineyard. The staff are very friendly and accommodating and very knowledgeable. I've had poor experiences in the past trying various red wines and was surprised with what was offered. My view on the red wines have changed quite a bit after this experience.

My husband and I were interested in this winery because of the caves in the Diamond Mountain area that are part of the winery. We were disappointed that we didn't get to see the caves because of a private tasting that was taking place but the tasting was so much fun it didn't matter! Brian helped us with the wines... More

We stopped at the Clos Pegase winery at the end of our first day in the Napa Valley. Our server, Vince, was very accommodating when we asked to split just one estate wine tasting. The $20 tasting fee included samples of four very different wines (a sauvignon blanc, a rose, a pinot noir and a red blend), all of which... More

Wonderful select of wines and Mr. Vincent Martin was very knowledge about the production of the grapes and the flavors produced by each. He was kind enough to give us a tour of the caves which are definitely a site to see. Recommend for those visiting Napa.

Our group had a fun tour here and enjoyed the tour as well as the tasting. This winery is a bit quirky with funky art throughout the house and grounds. There is a lovely picnic spot among the garden art- a fun way to spend an afternoon with friends.
