Tasting the wines at Oxbow is a must for anyone who goes to Napa. The place is small and crowded but very worth it.

Gave Groupon a try with the purchase of a tasting for 2 at the Oxbow and thoroughly enjoyed it. Unfortunately, I don't remember names, but both the male and female associates were informative with our tasting. It started off a bit rocky, but as it went on, we really enjoyed the females take on Napa in general -- she recommend... More

We had planned to go on Tuesday, not realizing they were closed, and had scheduled Wednesday for beer and breweries in Santa Rosa. Unfortunately we had to leave Napa Thursday morning. So our only chance to redeem our... More

Our group of 8 had some time to kill before our dinner reservation, and we're a little hungry but didn't want to kill our dinner appetite and stumbled in here. Great service!!! They immediately sat us at the long table, and offered tastings (each person chooses 5 from their choices of wine) and cheese and (unlimited) crackers. Great attention to... More

We stopped by Taste on one of our afternoons in Napa - what a delight. We sampled lots of wine and had some great conversations with everyone there. Thanks for a wonderful time

Waterstone Winery is located in downtown Napa across from Oxbow Market. The tasting includes four tastes for $10, but there are coupons, groupons and other offers that you should check out on the Internet. There were eight Waterstone wines available for tasting when I visited. Waterstone Winery at Taste of the Oxbow makes a very pleasant, reasonably priced 2008 Merlot... More

Just left a wine tasting. Our server was barely interested in pouring....left after each pour to hang with her friends. The other servers didn't even look our way. We left halfway through the tasting.
