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

My husband and I did a private tour at Palmaz this week during our stay in Napa. The tour was great and our tour guide was very knowledgable about the vineyards and winemaking, in general. We really enjoyed the tour and it was a unique experience seeing a winery built into a hillside! The caves were neat to see. The... More

Loved, loved, loved everything about this tour! We will recommend to all of our friends. We can't wait to bring them all so they can experience what we so fortunately already did. Palmaz would be fun to tour with a group of four or more friends! It couldn't have been better. The wine was superb, but that was just the... More

We stopped off here and loved it! We aren't huge wine drinkers, but we enjoyed this no doubt! And what a beautiful place as well. Will definitely stop here again if ever in the Napa area.

I have no words to describe Palmaz Winery. Reservations are required for a tasting and it is well worth the tasting fee! The scenery is spectacular. Adrian was our tour guide and perfectly explained the unique method of Palmaz wine-making. No expense was spared in creating this gravity-based wine operation. And the wines happen to be superb!

We had no idea what we were getting into when we showed up at Palmaz. The history of the family, the engineering involved building the winery, and family atmosphere were fascinating. The food pairings for the wine were perfect. They have a different approach to the farming of grapes and incredible views.

This is a must see when in Napa. They have an incredible place, amazing views of the valley, and even more amazing wines. We added this to our list because my wife loves Riesling - which they were out of. But even she was completely amazed at all their other wines and hardy disappointed to not be able to taste... More
