What a refreshing wine tasting compared to the more commercial wineries! Very down to earth with amazing wines that are priced extremely reasonable when compared to other tasting rooms. We are "red" people, and every red they had was really really good, and then the Oracle.........dang! That wine is amazing, from the first nose to the finish! They also gave... More

This was such a great place to stop and visit! We had Abby as a server and she was so friendly and helpful. Really liked all the wines and had to restrain ourselves from buying too much! The views are incredible and the whole thing was such a great experience.

At the Miner's Winery in Napa California, Pete took the lead in our wine tasting and tour experience for my party of six (6). He is extremely knowledgeable and is truly a professional. The tasting room on the second floor has an elevator for the handicap visitors, great indoor and outdoor ambiance, also, great wines at wonderful prices. Bang for... More

We went Miner on the suggestion of the wonderful woman who was running the tasting room at Turnbull. Wow, what a wonderful place to go to. We were treated with exceptionally good service - and my under age daughter was with us. You pay $25.00 for the tasting, however; you get don't need to pay for that if you spend... More

Pick your level of tasting and take your time. These are good and the staff will take the time to explain what you are drinking, when to decant it or store it for future use.

After visiting 10 wineries in the Napa region, the Miner Family Winery was one of our best visits. It was the only winery where we chose to join their wine club! Great views and excellent wines and staff.

Second stop on our wine tour with Green Hills Wine Tours ( which I highly recommend). We were a group of six celebrating the 50th Anniversary of our parents. We were treated like never before! Had a private seating on the front deck overlooking the beautiful valley. James looked after all of our tastings personally and spent over 8 hours... More

I come to Napa quite often and Miner family winery is always a must stop. The people that work the tasting bar are much younger than the average age in Napa, but still very knowledgeable. After 3 o'clock the place gets crazy busy and there is a small bar area to taste at. The best thing about Miner is that... More

This was the first stop on our wine tour where we decided not to purchase anything other than the tasting. The bar area was very busy, as was the patio area. The tasting bar seemed to be well enough staffed, but the server was less than interested in telling us anything about the wines other than the name of each... More

Had a great time here and joined the wine club. Best wines I have tried and outstanding tour with James! Cannot wait to return with my husband. They were very well run and could tell they cared a lot about what they do.
