We had a very nice tour here. The group is always capped at twelve, but we only had five. Christian was very informative and happy to answer any questions. We moved along, but never felt rushed. The wine selection for tasting was of a nice variety: Chardonnay, Chardonnay Reserve, Sirah, Cab Sav, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir. Beautiful facility, beautiful wine.

We had reserved a spot in the Cakebread "pairing" tour. What a great experience! First, we were given a quick tour of the wine processing area, then we were taken to a beautiful building for a food pairing experience. We were given four Cakebread wines and four delicious types of food and instruction on how the characteristics of the given... More

My sister and I did a walk in tasting here. Nothing special, it was not very memorable but the wine was good and the family story was nice. The property seemed pretty but it was raining so we ran in and ran out and did get a chance to see much.

The absolute best way to tour a winery is to do a food and wine pairing at places that offer them. Cakebread had a wonderful food and wine pairing in their beautiful tasting room overlooking their picturesque estate. Our "guide" shared tidbits about each wine we were tasting and why it was paired with each dish and that somehow made... More

The Cakebread wine tasting introduced us to several reds and whites that we had not tried before. Our guide was very informative and the tasting was generous. We understand better now why this appelation is such a favorite.

This was our favorite of all the wineries. The tour was outstanding and very educational. The tastings were incredible and we came home with several bottles. We were more than happy with this experience. We will definitely return.

My husband and I were able to book a red wine tasting with cake bread and we enjoyed our visit. The wines were good and our host was knowledgeable. In the future, I'd try to call earlier to get an appointment for the classic tasting that included reds and whites.

Cakebread was on the top of my list to visit, as they make my favorite chardonnay. The tastings are done by reservations only, which are easily obtainable online. They take one group at a time to their lovely tasting room and have you sit around a large table while they talk to you about their wines as you're tasting...it's a... More

We fell in love with this wine. We were so pleasantly surprised! This family owned vineyard definitely puts a personal touch on everything they make. You feel like home!! I would absolutely go back. And now I purchase cakebread wine everywhere I go.

You are greeted at the door by a friendly host who hands you a glass of wine while you wait for your tour to start. Our guide, Aaron, then took a small group into the winery for the remainder of the tasting. He was very knowledgeable about the wines as well as the history of the winery and the surrounding...
