We have been on a lot of wine tours and this one was definitely one of the most innovative and interesting. The history of the palmaz family (inventor of the palmaz stent) and the gravity fed technology along with the imax like projection on the dome walls made this tour well worth it - not to mention the delicious wine...

While the wines are beyond my price point, it was wonderful to visit and see a winery that has a total commitment to excellence when it comes to creating great wine. If you know something about wine making and want to see a world class operation, this is the place to visit. And, the views are spectacular from the terraces!

This winery was the highlight of our trip. Diana, our guide, was fantastic. Her knowledge of the history of the winery and the entire wine making process was impressive. The wines were fantastic - all of them. They had a nice food pairing as well. Highly recommend.

My fifth trip to Napa and it is experiences like Palmaz (I can count others on one hand) that have spoiled me! From start to finish, the Palmaz tour pays attention to detail and is amazing. The tasting? Relaxed, mellow, and nicely professional. The wines? Without a doubt, some of the best Cabs I've ever tasted.

At first I was wondering what a $60/person tasting fee would get me and actually we were going to cancel after seeing many other wineries that day but boy this place was incredible. Had a 2.5 hr tour of the incredible grounds and tour guide was so knowledgable about the history and the family she held all of our interests.... More

While in Napa make this a must see, you won't be disappointed. Remember to make an appointment. This by far was one of the best tours we took on vacation.

By my own admission, I can be a wine snob. I have my favorites. Pride Mountain, Peju, Siver Oak. I was not prepared for the experience we enjoyed at Palmaz Vineyards. It is straight out,of a James Bond movie, where someone one with a ridiculous amount of money and a genius IQ sets out to make a first rate wine.... More

This one is probably the coolest and most interesting in the valley. The caves and innovative wine produicing techniques were especially welcome after lunch. I really enjoyed thr food and wine pairing. The mom is a fantastic cook. That being said, with everything else involved, I thought the wine would be magical. It was good. Just not good enough for...

Had a great time touring and getting to know the history of this wonderful Winery. It was my first time to Napa and I already know I want to take my husband here! If you are going to Napa...you have to go to Palmaz...it will ruin your experience at any other winery because its so amazing.

We came to find Palmaz due to a friends recommendation. Our visit and wine tasting experience was brat. The place itself is a must. They take care of every single aspect so that the wine is made with a modern process in a very well taken care of facility and in a family loving atmosphere. The wines are high quality.... More
