This was actually our first stop of the day and we did enjoy the wines during our visit, specifically the more full body reds they had for the tasting that day. I believe one was called Dancing Bear and that I enjoyed very much. The ladies at the front that greeted us were very sweet and pleasant to work with... More

We chose Cakebread Cellars on our daughter's recommendation. Boy, was she right! We started out our experience with a lovely glass of chardonnay. This was a really nice touch on the part of the winery! We were then led both indoors and outdoors on a very interesting and educational tour by our guide Brian. Our wine tasting was held in...

We have always like Cakebread wine.We found ourselves running too for behind to make our next appointment, so we canceled it and pulled into Cakebread instead. They were able to sneak us in and we had a wonderful tasting of several different varietals and really enjoyed our visit. We also left with several bottles of their wine. They also offered... More

This is by far the best chardonnay in the Napa Valley. The tour is very informative with a great selection for tasting. I am a chardonnay lover and still find this the best produced anywhere.

The tasting was fine at a bar set-up in the tasting/bottle storage area. Nothing was particularly special, as you paid and got the normal pours for a tasting, though these days at $25/person it was reasonable by Napa standards and they did pour a reserve Chardonnay in the mix.

We've received a World-class WINERY experience over the years we've been going here. This is one of the earlier wineries to emerge as a front runner of the Napa Valley wine seen it back in the mid-70s. And still leads today and consistency and quality throughout all of their varietals. The tasting staff are very knowledgeable and pleasant and patient.... More

We wanted to stop here because we had heard great things about their wines. We didn't realize it was by appointment, but they were gracious enough to book us for the next tour. Brett, our tour guide, was passionate about the wines and the family that owned it, which made it even more enjoyable. We liked everything we tasted which... More

With over 500 wineries in the Napa Valley, choosing which ones to see can be daunting for first timers.This was our dilemma on our recent trip to the California wine country. After much online research and word-of-mouth recommendations we decided to include Cakebread Cellars in our itinerary. We learned that this is a winery which generally requires a reservation. We...

This was our first stop on the tour of Napa, due to my familiarity with their wine. I have to say that it was perfect for my first time, as the experience was so personal and special. Everyone is so pleasant and engaging. The tasting was shared with a group of 3 other couples, which really made it fun, guess... More
