My husband and I signed up for a tasting one lovely morning! We were given a tour of the property, including the history. Our guide/host was so much fun and very informative. The tour was followed by a lesson in wine tasting/pairing for those who are interested in learning tips, and or just enjoying the amazing flavors of wine &... More

We were able to call and get in last minute for a tasting. We had the opportunity to try varietals we normally don't see from Cakebread, which was very exciting. The grounds are beautiful and the location is very easy to get to.

We enjoy Cakebread wines and thought it would worth a stop at the vineyard. Good call! We tasted 5 varieties and they were each delicious. The pourers were friendly and engaging. Wanted to know as much about us and we wanted to know about the wine, and it wasn't all about buying their wine. Just making sure we enjoyed it.... More

Ricky was our guide and the 1.5 hrs passed quickly. We were very lucky to get a reservation the day before and were so very happy we did this tour. Not only did we learn about wine in general but also about the cake bread history which we were unaware of. The tasting included all red and white wines, some... More

Second trip to Napa, second trip to Cakebread! We loved it so much the first time when we unfortunately had to cancel our tour that we knew we wanted to go back. We were able to do the comprehensive tour ($25/person) and it was well worth it. We went the day after the large earthquake so I'm sure most of... More

Love Cakebread wines so for sure had to visit them on our trip to Napa. Matter of fact we went twice on our trip. First visit was tasting and tour of vineyard and second was a Reserve tasting. Loved the tour and our guide and everyone was so nice and fun. Need reservations for any tasting at Cakebread. They have... More

I first discovered Cakebread Cellars in 2006, their sauvignon blanc changed my life, the hints of melon created a warmth and unique taste to a classic summer beverage. Their award winning red wines are both archetypical of a napa valley blend but complex and unique in their finish. The groups and private and breath taking, you won't notice it from... More

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.
