We did the tour, which you need to reserve spots for in advance. Very cool to see the caves dug by hand, and to hear about the sparkling wine production process. Comes with generous pours of Schramsberg's wines.

We booked our tour online 2 weeks ahead. We had a fantastic tour guide and she has only been there for 2 months but spoke with such passion and knowledge. Our tour was conducted in the caves amongst 2.3 million bottles of champagne. The tasting table was set in the caves for a very unique experience. Would highly recommend this... More

We visited Schramsberg Vineyards because the owners of the B&B we stayed in recommended it to us. It's a little hard to find, but well worth a visit. The tour was very informative and the wine tasting was fabulous! If you like sparkling wines, this is a must see attraction.

Pro tip - requires reservations because it includes a cave tour, 21+ only. Beautiful grounds and an awesome cave tour. I love wine country history and this tour was chock full. Then you get a high-end bubbly tasting. This is the life.

The vast caves with freely stacked bottles were amazing. I could have stayed in there all day. The tour guide was very informative in a fun comedic way. He made the tour seem too short, the tastings were wonderful, worth the fee. I took more pics here than anywhere else on the trip.

What a fun and different experience in the Valley. We had no idea of the history here, the tour guide was excellent as is their bubbly! Definitely one to do!

We were lucky to happen by and get in on a tour that usually requires a reservation days in advance. It's a charming tour with lots of interesting history shared by an enthusiastic guide and who can beat tasting $200/bottle sparkling wine? Very enjoyable.

We very much enjoyed our tour and seated tasting at Schramsberg Vineyards. Schramsberg is home to the oldest hillside vineyards in Napa. It is 218 acres with about 25 per cent having grape vines. We enjoyed our tour of the historic caves. It was fun to see so many wines of their fine sparkkling wine; a wine that they are... More

Tour and tasting were as expected - only item to mention was that this tour is done in a significantly larger group than most (11-12 people instead of the standard 5 person max) - but the wine purchasing/ordering process left a bad taste in my mouth that has overpowered the Schramsburg sparkling-wine. The short-bald man behind the counter truly does... More

I’m not much of a champagne drinker other than a New Year’s Eve toast but after reading reviews we decided it would be an interesting tour. It was perfect. Before venturing into the caves they share a brief overview of the Schramsberg history along with a short tour of the grounds. .The cave tour was fascinating, interesting and educational. You’ll...
