My husband and I visited this winery on February 10, 2015. We tasted a number of wines which had a variety of subtle flavors. We purchased two wines - a white wine "Viognier" which is light, fruity and refreshing. We also purchased a port wine - which generally is not a favorite of mine. Another customer was raving about the... More

These guys were a hoot and their wines were great too! We enjoyed our tasting and their enthusiasm for the craft. Definitely worth stopping by.

This place was a lot of fun. The personalities of our hosts and showmanship made the visit memorable. The guys play various musical instruments and sing to the guests. The wine was good. We purchased a bottle from our tasting line-up. For a small winery with a fun feel, this is a must stop!

We visited this winery in December, as part of the "Winter in the Wineries" passport. A smaller vineyard, we were not sure what to expect. I had one of the best experiences in wine country at this place! Included in the tasting was a dessert wine. Our host (cannot remember his name!) broke off a piece of dark chocolate, drizzled...

We are Chicagoans who were in Calistoga primarily for rest and relaxation. We weren't into spending big bucks on tastings. At any rate, we ended up at Lava Vine Winery serendipitously-- our friends who live in San Rafel, wanted to bring their dog (we love their dog too) and they researched to find a dog friendly winery and one with...

I'm a fan of smaller wineries that don't get lost in pretense - Lava Vine is a cute little winery that I've been fascinated with for a number of years. They serve very good wine but they do so with a friendly smile and good energy. Certainly one to visit if you find yourself near Calistoga.

Different from the norm, but so unique and tasty! The main person providing our wine broke out a guitar to sing to us! We bought a couple of bottles and recommend without hesitation!

We were welcomed and treated warmly by the staff who took their time with conversation, and explaining the wines to us, even though it was getting busy. The wines were tasty (their port is so good), and the staff was very knowledgeable. Glad we stopped here on our bike tour.
