Every wine was great, clean and good quality. The tasting room was lovely and laid back with simple counter and great atmosphere. The guys were funny and helpful. They sung a couple of songs to us playing banjo and guitar. You can bring your own food to BBQ if you want and sit outside on the huge table. Highly recommended... More

My wife and I visited Lava this afternoon and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. While the wines were pleasant and worth the stop, the warmth and entertaining wit of the winery hosts as well as the company of the other visitors made this a memorable destination. Highly recommended!

Very occasionally you find a winery that offers that perfect combination of casual wine country vibe and incredibly well-crafted wines. Lava Vine is one of those rare breeds. Friendly staff and frequent musical breaks in a fun-loving atmosphere makes for the kind of winery that reminds you that wine is supposed to be as FUN as it is delicious. But... More

Chilled and hip wine tasting room - welcoming and small scale production. Nice place to stop in between other wineries in the area. They also produce dessert wines

By far my favorite winery along the napa valley. The wines and the vibe is much different than most places in the region, but in a good way. The wines i had there were a departure from what you normally see out there, thus i was incredibly surprised to taste viognier and tempranillo in the tasting room. Depending on when... More

The best wine tasting experience you will have in Napa Valley hands down. The wine is good, the property is down home, and the staff treat you as if you just walked in and you are best friends. The guys that run Lava Vine are such characters. They know good wine, they know good food, and they live the California... More

We stopped at this winery thinking we would be in and out due to its small size. The guys who run it are amazing! It is such a laid back atmosphere with drinks flowing and music playing -- WAY different than those uptight wineries. We even got to bottle our own olive oil and he waved the tasting fee!! Totally...

AH-MA-ZING! We just love these guys. John Jones, you might be the most fun wine maker out there! Lets not forget to mention that you can rock the guitar. Thanks for making our large and obnoxious group feel like the were the best thing that happened to you all day. We loved it!
