My family loves wineries that are off the beaten path, and we were lucky to discover this place a few years ago while on vacation. This is our favorite winery, and the only one that we make sure to visit every time we're in the area. All of the wines we've tried are incredible! The tasting experience is more personal... More

If you are in the Napa Valley area - a must stop is Zahtila Vineyards (also known as Laura Michael Wines). I have been going for a few years now after a recommendation from my sister and this fall I finally became a club member. Laura and Michael are great and the wines are fabulous - so all my family...

Do not pass by this little Gem in Napa. This small property delivers great wine and a beautiful outdoor patio. The ultimate relaxation spot and the wines are very well made. I'm so glad we had some friends give us a heads up. It turned out to be one of the best spots we visited all weekend.

Great wines in a small, intimate setting. Friendly staff. Nice little patio. We liked the wines so much that we bought a case and joined their wine club!

Skip the generic Rose and the Cabs. Their Zens are very good. A porta potty is it for the bathroom. Really? If they aren't making enough money for a real bathroom, they should just close the doors. There are better zens in the area to be had, at less cost, but theirs are worth a try. They don't give credit... More

After touring elaborate castles and vast vineyards, we had time (and energy) for one more tasting. Staying in Calistoga, a local shopkeeper suggested Zahtila Vineyards. We met Michael in the tasting room and immediately felt like we were family. My daughter had just gotten a job at a nearby resort and was feeling anxious about being 3,000 miles from home.... More

that no one should miss! Greeted by Rockie the lab-collie mix that escorts you up to the tasting room where husband Mike comes in from the vinyard and talked to us for over an hour while he poured some of his amazing wines. What a great time learning and tasting. With an experience like this, I'd avoid big name pour-and-move-wineries... More

Greeted by a great dog then by the winemaker herself. Comfortable conversation learned a lot. Very nice wines and a beautiful setting. Worth the stop and the drive.

This was our 4th and last winery visit of our first day. It was a great ending! We were running about 20 mins late for our 4:30 appt (the last of the day) so we called them. They said to come in anyway. Carmen did our tasting and she was hilarious, knowledgeable and it felt like having some drinks with... More

Small output winery with superb wines only sold at the vineyard. Been to many places in Napa, Sonoma, but this was the first place I actually joined the wine club. The owner, Laura, actually poured the wines for us and provided us history behind every vintage. Fantastic wines with small production and would strongly recommend a visit. Will definitely come...
