This is one of many wine tasting rooms throughout the region. I did like this one in that it wasn't very pretentious and the other people that were also there were fun. However, we had a "free" coupon and still managed to spend money!! The wines were just marginal and we could have used a few more crackers to clear... More

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

Our family of 6 adults had purchased 3 Groupons for wine tasting with pizzetta and $25 credit toward a bottle of wine. 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

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

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
