Great wine, excellent service, what else could you ask for. It's pretty small and when we stopped by it was busy. They immediately opened up a garage room for us, threw some tables together and brought out some food. Then immediately just started pouring. The owners were very cool, laid back and so friendly. We were on a tight schedule... More

We arrived late in the afternoon with two small kids. It was a hit with everybody. The kids played outside with the hens and goats. We had a great and relaxing time inside the tasting room. Staff were very friendly and supercool. Wines both good tasting and interesting. The atmosphere was great: laidback and friendly. It was like being in... More

I mean, seriously: laid back. Chill. Relaxing. My husband and I were just thinking we'd head to any winery within walking distance for one last tasting adventure before walking into town for supper. Checked the iPhone, Lava Vine popped up on the map as the closest. The atmosphere in the tasting room was casual, friendly, with everyone clearly enjoying themselves.... More

I will simply echo the other reviewer sentiments that this is a laid back, fun tasting spot. Well done atmosphere and art with the pottery, photographs, etc. You must stay until you get a guitar song...or buy more wine to prompt it! I must say, in contrast to some other reviews, I found the wines well done, but not to... More

We stopped here as part of our Calistoga Sip n Cycle tour. I have to say it was the best and most fun part of the tour. The owners at the tasting room are very laid back, and even played some guitar music for everyone. The wine itself is very good, and their is a waiting list to join in.... More

This is just off the highway and worth the stop. You get to taste 5 wines and a dessert wine with chocolate. It was fantastic! This is a must see and you will not be disappointed.

I went to Lava Vines with friends. The property is gorgeous and has goats and other animals. The wine is amazing, my favorite was the petite Syrah. Just loved it.

Totally laid back experience-dogs welcome- where owners often serenade their customers while pouring their excellent wines. They only sell to club members and visitors so this is your chance to try a great find

My wife and I stopped here during our first trip to Napa and Sonoma Valley. First off, we are by no means wine experts. We enjoy wine, we enjoy travel and we feel that both should be enjoyed as a personal experience. That all said, this was one of our favorite stops while in the area. It was nice seeing... More
