We just loved our visit here. The staff was like talking to a sister or aunt. The wines are amazing and it's all family run so easy to understand why they are so engaged and caring. Their Reserve cab is incredible with a pepper / jalapeño smell / taste that is the perfect accompaniment to meats. Love this place !!!

We are given a very convincing and professional introduction of how their wines are made. Very transparent comparison of their materials and processes applied. You get to see the actual barrels were other wineries may not show you. More importantly, they show the very basic technique to assess and taste wines. They also sell unique wine openers that enables you... More

We knew nothing about Madonna Estates beforehand - only that they welcomed picnics, and we'd be passing it about lunchtime on our cycling route. Not knowing what to expect, we were very pleasantly surprised. The tasting fees were the most reasonable we'd come across in the area, so we definitely recommend "splurging" for the higher end tasting - the Cabernet... More

Nothing against Madonna Estate but I wouldn't recommend them, they have some of the worst wine I've tasted in Napa yet. Upon arriving the tasting room was empty and nobody behind the bar even gave a friendly hello. Once they gave us some attention the wines were poured and there wasn't one that I found even palatable. The best part... More

This quaint winery is a family run business. My wife and I were given a personal tour by one of the owners. From "hello" you could hear the pride he took in his business. Everything is done to produce Green Friendly high quality wines. When the Owner took his daughter into the business, he produced a special wine to honor... More

I came here on an Extranomical tour and absolutely enjoyed the wine. It's a smaller winery and doesn't have much of an area to explore or at least we weren't offered an area. However, the wine was good and at a fair price. They also had the largest/best wine tasting out of all of them. I definitely would recommend this... More

We went here on a wine tour and the staff was very informative during the tour. We tasted the wines and had lunch outside. We would have liked to have had a glass during lunch but they don't allow that. We did buy a bottle of the cabernet to take home. Not the most beautiful tasting room but it has... More

Beautiful winery and tasting room. Great wine and friendly staff. Close to downtown Napa and easy to get to. Only $5 for a tasting and some really good wines.

This was our second stop in a wine tour. The guide made us feel comfortable, especially those of us who are not wine connaisseurs. Their selection was varied. I really liked their muscat and pinot rosetto wines. Wonderful visit
