This was a little stuffy for my taste even though we really enjoy the wines. James was an extremely knowledgeable & fascinating guide. Pours were disappointingly small and the other guests were a little annoying, so I did not enjoy this tour as much as I had hoped to

Had visited the winery years ago and enjoyed their wines so when the concierge at our hotel suggested a small group reserve tasting I signed us up. there were six of us and we were given a short tour and shown to a private room which was lovely. Most of the other tastings I attended throughout the weekend charged for... More

These were our favorite wines (and tasting guide) of the trip! We will definitely be back on our next trip to Napa, but will just have to enjoy it from home until then.

Traveling with a group of old friends, all with varying degrees of interest and experience in the wine experience. We spent 3 days in Napa, touched on many different vineyards and, by far, Cakebread was the top vote for all. Not only was the tasting a great value, costing less than many others, but the tasting was personalized, educational and... More

Still good wines, but our tour guide was ho hum and had no personality. Made for a blah tasting. Felt much more commercialized than most of our tastings!

This one certainly one of the better stops we made while in the Napa area. We did the wine tasting with tour with Nick (excellent guide) and was very impressed with this one. Unlike a few of the other wineries in the area we certainly enjoyed most of the wines tested. Very nice building, very friendly staff. A must stop... More

I love this winery. Taking the tour is great fun and the wine tasting is really great. Make sure you make a reservation before going as if you just show up, you will not be able to have a tour or tasting.

Over rated; other friends liked, but is bottom of out list for all wineries visited. I am accomplished wine connoisseur, and thought it was lackluster. Impressive operation, but wine tastings were very small and quite stingy actually, opposite of most other vineyards we visited.

So glad we came here. Our tour guide was great and patient because as a novice I had many questions. Since it was raining, we did not go out into the vineyard, but the tour of the facility was exceptional. The wine, although pricey, is excellent. I would come back anytime.

My daughter and I visited Cakebread Winery on the recommendation of a friend. I am so glad we did. Amy, our host, was full of information and humor. The wine was exceptional! Highly recommend it.
