Relaxing and modern ("garage") tasting room

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!

The reviews were so good I was sure we would love it... not so much. It's super casual, which can be fun (chickens roaming about) but also annoying (loudly cursing employees 15 feet away while we're sitting outside with our wine). The wine was mediocre, the guy pouring not hugely friendly or welcoming. Tasting fee was reasonable though, and it... More

The guys that run the place are hysterical. Out of all the vineyards we visited hands down this one was the most entertaining and fun. This is the place I got wasted at lol The expertise and knowledge of wine is not as good as the other places we visited . But this place is all about having fun ,... More

Lava Vine is a great place to visit for good wine and good times. Every time I visit it's always a new batch of people and a great time with the guys that work there. The atmosphere is super laid back and unlike anything else in the Valley. The wine is great and they carry a lot of varietals. Highly... More

The staff here is very fun. When I say fun, I mean that they broke into songs (with instruments) several times during our visit. One of our group members was playing bongo drums at one point. It was crazy fun and a great way to end the day!
