Struggling to put words around the experience at Caldwell with Brian and JFC, himself. There's definitely nothing like it. Tons of fun and some of the best wine we've ever had. We will definitely be back.

We visited 7 wineries this week and the Calwell tasting was top notch. First of all, the owner, Mr. Caldwell, was a charming hoot. Personable and irreverent. Very entertaining. Our tasting was lead by the only Master Cooper in North America. Fascinating. The wine were typically good, but we were able to tast bottle after bottle after bottle. We even... More

A group of 6 girls were in Napa Valley for 5 days to celebrate a birthday. This was by far our favorite stop and experience of the entire trip. John was beyond phenomenal. A one of a kind gem that we were so grateful to get to meet and hear story after story while tasting exquisite wine. Had so much... More

My fiance and I went here earlier today and were so blown away...hence the immediate tripadvisor review. Not only is the location and story behind the winery unique, but the way their tours and tastings are run are far superior to any other vineyard. The vineyard is completely underground in a cave, unlike any other. The laid-back, non-pretentious, approach is... More

This is one of my favorite winery experiences in all of wine country. pro: John Caldwell is what makes the experience so memorable as he take you thru many of his wines while entertaining you with terrific stories and tales. con: it is a long drive from the main napa corridor

Probably one of the best wine tastings that I have ever done in Napa! John Caldwell, the proprietor, is a really cool guy and is part of the experience. Their wines are really tasty and it's just a cool experience sitting in a cave. Off the beaten path, but that makes it even better.

John Caldwell gives the tour and it is so much fun! His stories are both outrageous and fascinating. Nothing better than sitting in a cave with a Napa legend regaling us with his mark on Napa history. Then you sip the wine!! Disneyland for grown ups!

We had a tasting with the owner, John Caldwell. He is a funny man that makes some incredibly good wines. We had our tasting in his smaller tasting room in the caves - great setting. We joined his wine club and can't wait to get our first shipment.
