The quality of Schramsberg champagne alone would make this worth the trip, but the tour and the hosts and the history are unique in Napa. This is our favorite tour and tasting. We never miss a chance to include Schramsberg when we visit wine country. This was our 9th visit.

This was the only tour we did on our 5 stop winery visit to Napa. I loved seeing the caves, the stored wine, the riddler and then finishing with a tasting of six wines in their beautiful wine room. I'd happily recommend it if you are a fan of history and a place not overrun with folk just wanting to... More

You just have to take this tour. The caves are amazing and the history will floor you. The guides are friendly and knowledgeable. The riddler is so fast!

We took the cave tour and tasting and, in my opinion, this has been the highlight of our trip to wine country so far. What an amazing experience! Our wine educator, Ilya, was not only incredibly well-versed on the history of Schramsberg Vineyards but she was extremely personable, approachable, warm and welcoming as well. She made our entire group feel... More

Between the family and business story and the quality of the wines, if you love the tiny bubbles, don't pass up this tour. Our guide was very welcoming and knowledgeable and the wines sell themselves. We had been at Domaine Chandon earlier in the day; the Schramsberg product is superior and the back story is a rich slice of American... More

We visited 9 wineries over two days, and Schramsberg was one of our top two. This place is unique; the homestead is a beautiful Victorian house (currently being renovated for its owners) and there is plenty of history and character. The wine caves here are I believe the oldest in the area, built in the late 1800s. The details of... More

First I must say wine is all about romance. Ok, if it's done well it tastes great also. If you are a fan or even an infrequent admirer of the bubbly, this place is amazing! I love history and the tour opens with a very entertaining back history of the winery from the early days of it's founder J.Schram and... More

I highly recommend everyone take a tour at this vineyard. Schramsberg has always been me and my husband's celebration bottle of choice, so we were excited for the opportunity to visit. I wish I could remember the name of our tour guide because he was the absolute best. He was fun, knowledgable and had a passion for his job. I... More

Schramsberg has one if the better guided tasting and cave tour in Napa and Sonoma. Although one of the larger sparkling houses in the area, the cave tour and tasting was intimate, educational and fun. I've been a Schramsberg fan for a while, but the winery experience made me a bigger fan.

We loved this tour! Very informative and we had a glass of champagne to drink as we toured. Lots of cool history and great sparkling wine. This company puts their heart and soul into their product without charging an arm and a leg. Very neat to hear all about how the wine is made, see their cellars, and taste by... More
