This unique winery with an off-the-wall owner creates small batch wines. Will not find this style anywhere else. Vineyard buildings created by famous architect that 'hates right-angles'. 2008 Petit Syrah is something special. Tour guide/taste-master Marco is a true treasure and makes the tasting experience personal and unforgettable. You will not be able to leave without at least two bottles.... More

Quixote is a quaint, eclectic boutique winery tucked into the foothills off of Silverado Trail in the Stags' Leap district. Autumn, our hostess, provided us with a knowledgeable, in depth and personalized tour of the facilities, which are themselves part art installation and gallery. Quixote crafts superb wines, which we enjoyed both before and during the guided tour. If you... More

I recently made an impromptu visit to Quixote Winery because our hotel gave us the tip to check it out and I must say, it definitely exceeded my expectations. They walk you through the winery, stopping at different areas to talk about the history and pour you wine. It's a tour and tasting all at once. Also - superb wine.... More

The people leaving as we arrived were generous with praise for their 2 hour tour and tasting. I guess their regular hot went home. 25 minutes later we were dismissed. One of the wines clearly had been open for days and was totally gone. One was bland, one seemed off and one was very good. Pretty poor batting average for... More

Everybody there has great wines, but just Quixote has a passionate and eccentric story. Their place is really beautiful and different from everything that we could ever seen. David took us for a tour in the cellars with their unique steel barrels decorated by their employees.. their winery has more than grapes and good structure, they have soul. You can't... More

David, Head of Hospitality, gave us a wonderful tour of this unique winery, set off the beaten track. The architecture is colourful and unique and the story behind the building is fascinating. Quixote's whole approach is different from all the other wineries we visited. It is fun, educational and very personal plus the Syrahs were lovely. Definitely make an appointment... More

This winery has an exceptional back story and David, head of hospitality, is just the man to tell it. We had a little trouble finding it but once we saw the unique building, designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser , we were glad we had persevered. Just wandering through the buildings would've been worth it but the big reds, especially the Petit... More

This is a do not miss site for architecure buffs. Completely hidden from the road, the winery reveals itself bit by amazing bit as you approach from the parking area. Your reward for making an appointment is not only the chance to see the amazing architecture, but to enjoy some of the best syrah you will ever taste.

Quixote is an off the beaten path gem replete with whimsical architecture. We had a wonderful tour of the facility, full of colorful stories regarding the designer and his charismatic nature. The tour ends with the tasting and cheeses in the back patio. Petite Syrah was exceptional.
