Have always wanted to stop and experience this grand sparkling wine venue in the French tradition. Perfect weather, service and sparkling wine tasting experience! Relaxed and waiter was informative and helpful! A beautiful view of Carneros hills, with birds lazily circling overhead.

I'm a champagne appreciator but was always very skeptical about sparkling wines quality. Till I visited Domaine Carneros. They are the USA arm of Taittinger (one of the best French champagne you can buy for a very reasonable price). The place is beautiful, a stunning building, with a very nice patio where you can sip one or many of their... More

We had a table reserved on the patio to end our day of winery visits. The building is beautiful and the grounds are as well. In my opinion though the patio had a spring break party feel with an outside bar you could walk up to etc. the server came out and literally dropped the menus on the table and... More

Great experience! This is really a stunning building with great views. It is hard to beat sitting on the patio of a faux-chateau and sipping great bubbly. The wine was excellent as was the service (they come to you). It was relaxing and the view was outstanding. The fee is a little steep (tastings start at $30), but not out... More

Have been here before - this time went later in the day. I felt the staff wanted to get out of there which was so different than my last visit. Setting is beautiful on terrace. There was a family with 6 kids that were running around out of control - I had wished the staff said something since it was... More

The service was excellent maybe because we were industry. The grounds were beautiful even though it is right off the highway like most other wineries. The tasting are a bit pricey ranging from $30-$40. If you enjoy sparkling then this is the place for you. The overall experience was just average.

On the one hand, the tastings are expensive and the place is thronged with people. Sitting inside seems awful. On the other, if you can get a quiet table on the perimeter of the terrace, it's lovely. The tastings were incredibly generous; we essentially got a full glass of each wine, plus two more glasses when we expressed interest in... More

A lovely view interrupted by the highway 😢. Friendly staff, beautiful building and grounds, I probably wouldn't recommend a stop but I am glad I did.

We had time for only 1 winery tour while in the San Francisco area. Neither of us are wine connoisseurs but I prefer red while my friend prefers white so we thought that, though sparkling is not normally a go-to wine for either of us, this would be good middle ground. Many of the ones we looked at required reservations... More

My husband and I went on an engagement trip to Napa and this was one of the wineries we went to. It is beautiful , its like you were at a french chateau. The hostess were very attentive and we sat outside and had a cheese plate with our wine tasting. The grounds are Beautiful. Very relaxing.
