Our group visited Elizabeth Spencer and were treated to an outdoor experience like no other. Levi was attentive and informative and made us feel at home. The courtyard is magnificent and very welcoming. The wines were exceptional and you must try the Reisling.

Fun different tasting experience. Rather than standing at a bar, you are seated at your own table in a lovely private courtyard. Bread sticks and water aplenty! Our server was certainly the most educated of any we ran into in the valley. She brought maps (I'm talking relief maps!) and knew about French wine making vs. USA, regions, etc. But... More

We have been wine club members at Elizabeth Spencer, and visiting them, for over six years now. Our last two visits there were not enjoyable and we almost did not come this trip. We made reservations for our party and had a cottage tasting with Tracy, who was absolutely wonderful! Had we had her on our previous 2 visits I... More

I stopped by Elizabeth Spencer for a quick tasting before another reservation. It was a great tasting experience. I sat in the patio area which is beautiful. They custominzed the tasting to concentrate on whites because that is my preference. The staff was very knowlesgeable and accommodating. Very nice experience.

We bumped into someone we knew from home and they suggested Elizabeth Spencer. The staff was great and the wine was wonderful. We ended up buying a case of wine and joining the club (something we avoided at all of the large wineries we visited). This was one of our favorite places because it feels very personal.

Best reds we've had so far. Beautiful garden seating. Really a great price for a wine pairing, just $20. Service was great. Can't wait to come back on our next Napa trip.

The wine is great. The setting is very intimate. The rosé is perfect for a hot day. Easily the best snacks in Napa. Just saying.

We'd not planned on going here but we happened to meet Kathy, a wine educator there, at dinner one evening and we so enjoyed talking to her, we made an effort to go. We are very glad we did. Kathy did a lovely sit-down tasting for us in the nice air-conditioned cottage -- which was particularly welcome as it was... More

This place was suggested to us by our B and B host and I'm so glad we stopped. They have a cute little outside area to taste the fabulous wines. The breadsticks were a nice touch too. I only tasted whites and each one was delicious! My favorite was the sauvignon blanc suggested by the most helpful nicest hostess. We... More

We surprised the winery by calling about 15 minutes before arriving with a crew of 12. We were graciously seated, trying their Premiere tasting for a modest fee, that covered the whole of the Napa Valley. From a welcome Ros'e, to ending with a High Mountain Fruit Cab, with a delish Pinot, a well-oaked chardonnay, and something else in between.... More
