We stopped in at Laura Michael as it was referred to us by many locals we spoke to. We visited Sterling Vineyard prior. My wife and I much preferred Laura's. We were greeted by two friendly dogs and made our way to the tasting room where we met Tim. Tim was friendly and very knowledgable being patient in explaining the... More

Great little winery with high quality low production wines. Wines are not in general distribution. Old world style, I bought a 2009 Cab which is easily one of the best wines I have ever tasted. Tasting fee is $10 per person and is waived with a wine purchase. If you get the the chance, stop in, fabulous wine and very... More

Where to begin? Well to start the tasting fee is VERY reasonable $10 and we tasted 6 wines. The prices for the wines themselves were really reasonable too. We bought a bottle of 2013 Napa Valley Chardonnay for under $25. Chardonnays are not my favorite, but I loved what I tried!!! ALL 6 varieties we tasted were the BEST out... More

There's not a lot to see at Laura Michael Wines, but the trip off the beaten path is well worth making. For starters, the wine is far and away the best of any produced by small businesses in the area. Secondly, the tasting is only $10 per person, and the six pours are very generous. But most of all, Jim... More

Stopped in as I was highly recommended to visit by another winery. Excellent Cabs & Zins and a minute drive from our hotel. DO NOT MISS THIS WINERY!

Great wines. Great variety. Great prices. Randomly stopped in while driving by, and we're so glad we did. The tasting was given by Laura herself, and it was both educational and very enjoyable. Wonderful overall tasting, would most definitely recommend!

This little winery on the outskirts of Calistoga is a gem! The proprietors and hosts were true professionals without the snobbishness that some have. Both the Zinfandels and Cabernets were exceptional and the Chardonnay and dry exquisite Rose, had me thinking of Provence. A wonderful find and the intimate nature were a true delight! Also say hi to Rocky and... More

Found a porta potty, clean, but ok. Wines were decent enough, my hubby liked them more than I did. Maybe it was just palate fatigue at the end of a long day. Very personable gentleman who did the tastings. I'd go back and give it a second chance.

We stopped here on a whim on our last day in Napa because it was close to where we were and had excellent reviews. The reviews were spot-on, what a fantastic tasting experience! It was completely different from the big operations nearby like Sterling or The Castle. Though I really enjoyed those "big dog" wineries, they're good at what they... More

This was my 3rd wine tasting in the area and I absolutely loved it. Laura was actually there with her Husband Michael. we got to meet the creator of these amazing wines and discuss them. I normally don't Like Cabernet's but very much enjoyed Laura's creations. This definitely is a place to go. even my lady at the place I... More
