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

Una did a great job with our wine tasting. You do need a reservation, which made for a nice experience. We loved the wine so much we ordered some!

My wife said after our visit it was one of the best days of her life. We drove up from San Francisco just to see Cakebread, it was worth the trip for sure. The wine tasting was awesome, the property is gorgeous, we shipped a case home and then went to lunch. No point in going to other vineyards for... More

The highlight of the Cakebread tasting is that you are taken through the aging and bottling area (visit weekdays to see the bottling line running). Tasting takes place in the barrel-aging room, but it is cold, so bring a jacket or sweater.

Cakebread Cellars Winery was recommended to us. I found a 2/1 tasting coupon in Winery Finder. When we arrived I showed them the coupon. Was told I had to go to Facebook or Twitter and they would honor it from there. When I asked why they said that is the way they advertise. That was not on the coupon. We... More

I apologize for the misunderstanding, as it seems that we did not adequately explaining the 2-1 offer in the Winery Finder app, and perhaps the app could be a little more clear in what the procedure is. On the app, it has two steps, the second being the need to check-in and post a picture on Twitter or Facebook in... More

We visited Cakebread Cellars upon recommendation of our driver, who made our reservation for us. The grounds are lovely, and the artwork from photo contests is fun to view. Our tour guide told us we were his last group of the day, even though it was only around 12:30 pm. He seemed a little rushed and ready to go. However,... More

Cakebread is known for consistent wines, especially whites. The wine tour is very comprehensive, and the sit-down tasting is outstanding. Highly recommended.
