We really enjoyed our tour of Cakebread. The tasting included 6 different wines (generous portions - white, rose and red). Small group makes it easier to learn and ask questions. Owner's garden was a treat.

This winery is a must for Cakebread lovers. It is not a place to take your children and you have to have an appointment to wine taste. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and gives the entire history of the winery and the wines which was very interesting.

We didn't realize how popular this winery is and by the time we got there, it seemed there was no availability for a tasting. But they managed to squeeze us in and we were so glad that they did. The wines here are exquisite it's well worth the tasting fee to try some spectacular wines that you might now otherwise.... More

Cakebread has fabulous wines! We did the reserve tasting / short tour and had an amazing guide. He went into depth about how to look at a wine and know what kind it is (Shiraz vs merlot etc). He was caring and patient in teaching us his depth of knowledge! Great day!!

Enjoyed my first experience wine tasting in Napa Valley. The tasting was very informative and I learned a lot about wine from Brian, the pourer. I would have liked to taste the wine overlooking the grounds; the tasting room did not offer much by way of view, but overall it was enjoyable.

This is a beautiful property worth the trip by itself, but then you have the fantastic wines. Had a private tasting on the patio and it was gorgeous. The host was very knowledgable and friendly.

Coming from Australia it's hard to get oaky buttery Chardonnay but we went to cake bread today and died and went to heaven. Amazing property and style of tasting in small groups and scattered around the property. Beautiful. They ship internationally which was a first in 7 winery's we went to. The staff were great and overall a fantastic experience.... More

We did the reserve tasting and had a nice experience. The tour was informative and the tasting was done in a quiet second floor dining type room with a view overlooking the vineyards. The wines are some of my favorites and the reserve tasting did not disappoint. It was well worth the money.

Cakebread was the second of our wine tours on a recent visit to Napa and Sonoma. Indeed, they set the bar high! We were warmly welcomed and immediately given a glass of wine before the tour began. It wasn't 5 minutes before I sent the first tweet out showing the Cakebread logo/sign. Kudos for their social media engagement and every... More
