This place was ok to visit. When we arrived the guy who served us the wines did not seem too enthused in us being there and would only speak to my boyfriend most of the time. The wines were a little pricey for what was offered and when we were done with our tastings and started chatting with the other... More

I never miss taking friends or visiting relatives here, and they pretty much are all addicted. The desert wines are unequalled ANYWHERE i have been, in North America or Europe, and they have the most drinkable Cabernet i have tasted. Unpretentious to say the least, this place is very low key, and getting a tasting from Andre is about as... More

If you like visiting wineries with busloads of tourists and limos full of millenial wedding parties, keep driving by this place. This is a small, family run place that is not an over the top, extravagant, over priced tourist trap. On the recommendation of the Napa tourist info center, we stopped here on a rainy weekday afternoon and we were... More

This place is polarizing beyond measure...you'll either love it or hate it. I'd also call the whole experience here a bit surreal, (like "The Twilight Zone") and very nutty. We've visited here a few times, always at around 5 pm, and always on a lark! This is one of the only wineries in the immediate area open late, meaning after... More

Located on the Silverado Trail in the heart of Napa Valley, this small family-run winery was fun to visit briefly on a weekend evening near the end of its business day. In his small wine tasting shed, its cordial native Dutch owner/vintner explained to us that in his vineyards he raises grapes for cabernet sauvignon, merlot, zinfandel, and chardonnay and... More

This Little Boutique Vineyard has to be experienced to be believed. If you are into traditional hoity toity wine tasting then this is certainly not the place for you. If you want some amazing desert wine, a good humored staff, and friendly dogs then this is quite a find. Be sure to try to Late Harvest Cabernet filled chocolates. Simply... More
