Cakebread is phenomenal. We went to 4 wineries in 1 day and this was by FAR the best! We did the in depth tour & tasting ($25/person) and it was great. Greg was our tour guide. He was informative, funny and very entertaining overall. We went in late August and even got to taste the grapes! All the wines were... More

Had really nice and informative testing at Cakebread. The wines were good. My one criticism is that the tastings were situated in the garden, nothing wrong in that, but you were stood around a table and the wines were pulled out of a cooler from underneath the table. Could be made a little more elegant very easily. Other tastings were... More

Anyone who know wine, knows Cakebread. My second (or third) visit and looking forward to my next trip to wine country. Anyone who enjoys good wine must stop here for a tasting.

We went to Cakebread in July 2014 for the first time and were not disappointed! We had a Food and Wine pairing that was perfect from start to finish! We felt like we were in someone's home- it was warm and welcoming. All the wines tasted were lovely. The grounds were not as beautiful as some of the wineries we... More

A friend took me and wife to this winery. Didn't have an appointment, but luckily we got a slot anyway. Had to do with the (basic) Select tasting menu though. Our guide was knowledgeable and offered an interesting tour of their wines in their cool cellar by the huge stacks of barrels. As it was just about harvest time, we... More

We have enjoyed Cakebread for years but this was our first time to their winery. We did a food and wine tasting; it was lovely. They served real food instead of just cheese and crackers; again it was a wine and food pairing so it was not lunch but quite good. Everyone at the winery was helpful and upbeat. I... More

My boyfriend didn't really like wine before- but after this tasting his mind was changed! Greg was very knowledgeable, personable and made the whole experience fun. The grounds were beautiful! We wanted a tour but it was already booked. Would definitely go back again for the tour.

I've been a fan of Cakebread wines for years; their Chardonnay has been one of my favorites for years! Unlike most Napa wineries, 74% of Cakebread's sales are white wine. We did the red wine tasting and, even though the Syrah and Cab were incredible, the tasting itself was a little stale and boring. There was no winery tour, no... More

I am going to napa in August and with a group. I had booked for our then group of 6 to go to Cakebread Cellars!! We were very excited- as we enjoy drinking it at home. I called about 3 weeks in advance of our trip to say that we had 2 more people to add on to our trip.... More

I apologize for the issues you had with trying to change your group to a party of 8. As we are a working winery, all of our tastings are in a "small group format" that are conducted in different locations throughout the winery. For this reason, we try and keep an intimate format to our tastings, which means we try... More

This was our first stop of the day on our bike tour, and we enjoyed it. The grounds were very pretty, and we got to see some of the winery during our tasting. Our server was very interesting, with stories about the Cakebread family, his background in the wine industry, Napa history, and anything you could want to ask. We... More
