My daughter wanted to stop here since it's a really lovely setting and the building resembles something from France. Not much to do. If you want to taste wine, you will be seated at their indoor room. There is really no visitor center or much of a gift shop. We just bought a gourmet chocolate bar, used the restroom, then... More

We made the mistake of going to Mumm's first so we were a little disappointed with Caneros. First make sure you're prepared to climb 4 or 5 flights to the front door, especially after tasting wine all day! They were packed and didn't see at all eager to take care of us. We got haughty looks from both people we... More

Gorgeous building, lovely view of the vineyard, amazing wine and customer service. The staff member waiting on me, served me a splash of sparkling upon arrival while I decided which of their tastings to do. this was an amazing welcome to their winery and to my first ever Napa vineyard. However, this winery is very close to the beaten path.... More

Domaine Carneros is usually my first stop before checking into the Harvest Inn. You can get a nice plate of cheese, dried fruits, nuts and crackers for $19. Lots of tables overlooking the Carneros vineyards. There are several options for four flights of Pinot Noir wine and/or Sparkling wine for $30 to enjoy sampling with your cheese platter. I thought...

To kick off the 50th Birthday extravaganza of a dear friend, we made a stop at this incredibly beautiful estate. The enormous chateau takes you straight to northeast France in a heartbeat, and it's hard to pull yourself back into reality as you look out over the lush vine covered hills from the expansive terraces. The sparkling cheese plate was... More

What better way to start a my partner's birthday than with champagne served in an idyllic setting. The Ultra Brut was first class but surprisingly so were the red wines. The tasting was sit down waiter service and that made a pleasant change from standing at a bar.

This site is so impressive because of the lovely gardens surrounding it, the impressive building that houses the restaurant and the large porch where people sit, taste wine and dine, and the beautiful view of the surrounding vineyards. We had just eaten, so we didn't sit to order, but did enjoy the high-level decor, the well-dressed guests and the generally... More

The Building was beautiful and the sparkling wine great, however that was pretty much it. Parking was pretty much a disaster and if took 3 times of circling around and luck to finally get a parking spot. Additionally, we were also not expecting Domaine Carneros to sit almost directly on the highway. Overall, we came for good sparkling wine and... More

The fact that their wine tasting venue is relegated to a cafe style seating either inside or out on the "patio" (very loud noise from highway 12 "dampens" the location outside of this otherwise beautiful high-rise winery) It does tend to make it feel like more of a commercialized affair instead of the intimate setting many of us truly embrace...
