Small winery with great wine. Ask for Craig - he is an awesome wine educator. we were there during harvest when it is super busy around the winery and they still took time to show us the whole place - even the winemaker took time to answer all of our questions.

Arroyo is unusual in that they do not charge customers a fee to taste their wine. We spent over an hour here and left with five bottles of their product. Teddy, one of the employees, regaled us with his intimate knowledge of Canada, which he gained growing up in Winnipeg. He also offered us chilled water for our ride back... More

A small winery with great staff. We tried almost everything they had but I can tell you that it doesn't come close to the best Napa or even Calistoga has to offer. Their prices are reasonable but many of the wines we had were far lighter and less impressive than others and not what I was expecting based on the... More

Now I know why they are one of the top in ratings. This was our favorite stop and believe me we had a lot of "stops"! Teddy was our tour guide and so sweet. He actually held my attention and I learned a lot. Sorry, but after awhile all the guides sounded the same. This is a small family owned... More

A nice visit to a winery, the host was really passionate and knowledgable. We did enjoy it a lot. It is a big off the main road, so the scenery is nice, the hills are close. They do not take big groups, so once you are there, you really get a lot of personal attention. It includes walking thru the... More

We made an appointment here based on a mention the winery received in Lonely Planet. We were not disappointed. It was the hi light of our Napa Valley visit. Our tour and tasting lasted over an hour. The staff were down to earth and friendly. We even had a barrel tasting! Plus, the wine was great. The Cab was fab!... More

Tipped by one of our friends, we got an appointment at Vincent Arroyo. Different from all the others, this is an honest and professional Winery. As from the start we stated to be European and not being able to buy wine (more than 1 or 2 bottles), but nobody cared. We got a nice tour through the company and we... More

Thank you David for being such a wonderful tour guide and host! It was informative, personable, as well as fun! Loved being able to taste the future wines from the barrel. I will be sending in my request form for some of those. We also got a chance to see the bottling process that day which i had never seen... More

David from Vincent Arroyo was a great host. He showed us all over the vineyard, took time with us, explained their process and gave us great wine. It was our favorite winery in Calistoga
