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.

Heard nothing but fantastic things about this tasting and our experience exceeded our expectations. We had our tasting inside the cave in a beautiful hollowed out room gathered around a table. The tasting is done with the vineyard owner, John, who is a laid back guy who just wants to make and drink some good wine. He had great stories... More

We were a rowdy group of four couples from the same neighborhood bouncing from tasting to tasting in Napa. We hired a driver and after each tasting, he'd say, "I can't wait until you go to Caldwell Vineyards and meet John, he's quite a character." After a day of hearing this, my anticipation level of the Caldwell Vineyard and its... More

This hide away hill top winery is an absolute stop, if you can. The cave tasting is one with an opportunity to hear great stories of creating unique varietal grapes and sharing some of the finer wines in Napa. We just replenished our "Rocket Science".

This is a very unique tasting. Rarely do you have a chance to taste wine with the proprietor present and that is the experience at John Caldwell. Great stories and great history. However, I would only recommend this tasting to those that are serious about wine.
