I am a little late in getting this review posted, but I wanted to share our great experience at Von Strasser. It is required to have a reservation since the location of the winery is in an area that is also residential (so there is a limit on the volume of visitors to the wineries). We were in Napa on...

von Strasser is basically a Cabernet house. The probably make more different vineyard Cabernet’s than anyone in the valley. John DeGregory met us and was our host. We had the choice of a tasting inside or outside on the patio. Since the weather was still a little nippy at 10:00 am, we elected the inside tasting. The only varietal we... More

Do yourself a favor - make a reservation at Von Strasser and taste seven of the very best cabernets on earth. The experience itself is typically hosted in their beautiful cave, seated with some of the friendliest, most helpful staff in the business. I just can't say enough good things about Von Strasser - this is one of my favorite... More

We've had Von Strasser wines before and have enjoyed them, but not on this tasting. We were tasting off vintages (not their current stuff they are mostly selling). It seemed like when the guy found out we weren't joining the club, he was about done. It was our least impressive tour of the trip. Reverie is just up the road... More

This is a great family owned property. They make very good Cabs on Diamond Mountain. Our "wine consultant" was fun, helpful, and not pushy at all. We drank in their wine cave, which is a nifty place, though fairly cool, so bring a jacket. If you like big Cabs, you will love Von Strasser.

The staff makes you feel like your their top priority and provide outstanding service. Knowledgable and passionate about their wine. The wine and chocolate pairing tasting in their cave was amazing. The cab's were yummy and the chocolate (Lille Belle Farms) made for a memorable visit!

This is the Mecca of Cabs from Diamond Mtn. The tasting included a white Austrian Gruner and several low production Cabs. Each Cab was unique and flavorful. Best Cabs in California. John was our host discussed the wines in detail. Very friendly and informative. Highly recommend visiting up Diamond Mtn. to this winery. If you love Cabs then this is... More

Excellent wines. Tasting done in the cave storage area. We tried the wine and cheese tasting. Odor in the cave made tasting a little difficult but a pleasant experience. Tasting person seemed to rush us a bit, but had good knowledge of the wines.

We visited this winery in late June. The view up Diamond mountain was breathtaking. The wines were good with some outstanding reds. Also try their Gruner white wine for a treat. They also have a picnic area so stop and pick up items and bring your lunch with you.
