Make this one of your stops. Jennifer makes this place out of this world. Really liked one of the cabs. The tasting kit might be a worthwhile purchase. It is intimate and a great conversation at the same time.

This really is a bottler not a grower. We expected a full winery. The hostess was very nice but we really felt as though she was only interested in pushing club membership. She seemed almost annoyed when we told her we were not interested. They also offer a "kit" that allows you to blend your own wines. I would much... More

Loved this winery! It was the very first one we visited on our very first trip to Napa! We fell in love and joined the wine club! So quaint was the setting and so delicious was the wine!

Our last trip to Napa, we focused on fewer more intimate wineries. This one fit the bill perfectly. Friendly and nice that they included some small food pairings. The wines were good and the hostess was very knowledgable. Would highly recommend. Need to call for an appointment.

From the minute we pulled into the gate, we could tell this was the place for us. Weather turned beautiful just in time for our tasting on their terrace. Jackie was warm, friendly and VERY knowledgable. We shared a tasting, food pairing and barrel tasting during our visit. It was hard to leave this beautiful place. Can't wait to return... More

A modern open tasting room with great views of the vineyard and Napa, where a tasting is paired with food and expertly presented. This really is a great family winery with exceptional wines. Do not miss a barrel tasting if available.

Small vineyard with quality wines! Had an awesome time. We learned from the different soils and how same grapes have different flavors in different soils. The barrel tasting room is amazing. Thank you Fontanella for a great experience.

Jeff is an excellent wine maker with the utmost attention to detail. He knows his wine and crafts it with the highest passion. Excellent Cabernet both the estate as well as the Beckstoffer GIII.

We visited this winery on our trip to Napa last week and it was our favorite. Jackie was a great hostess. The wine and food were delicious and we got to taste out of the barrel. We joined the wine club (our first time joining one) when we returned home and can't wait for our 1st shipment.

We toured upon the suggestion of our private driver in 2010... An excellent spot with lovely, personal tour by Karen Fontanella. The setting is beautiful and the wines keep coming to our home... Wonderful memories of our time at Fontanella.
