I had wanted to go to Cakebread the last time I was in Napa but didn't have a reservation. So when I knew I was going in January, I made a reservation right away and it was really worth it. Make the appointment and go, you will not regret it!

It was a great place and the wine was wonderful, but not cheap! Their wine is usualy sold to restaurants and not retail, therefore the selection offered was not your typical tasting, it was very good

We made reservations for their Red Wine Tasting. Dan was absolutely wonderful and we enjoyed the time we spent with him. He took his time walking us through the samplings. We love Cakebread and went home with the 2007 Merlot. Out of this world!

We scheduled our tasting as our first stop one morning at 10am. It was just my wife and I and we wound up having a private tasting in the garden. It was a great setting and a very nice way to start the day. No big pressure to buy, although we did buy some wine and had it shipped back... More

I have reviewed Cakebread before, but it just keeps getting better and better. I have been a member of their wine club for years, and it is always a treat to pick up our "shipment" at the winery and taste the new vintages of their wines. The story of how the Cakebread family came to own the winery is charming,... More

We made reservations at Cakebread for their wine tasting. We were met at the door and handed a glass of their Sav. Blanc while checking in, a nice touch. The tasting took place on time and in their barrel warehouse. Although a little cool the setting was wonderful. Tasted 7-8 wines and all were very good.

Our tasting at Cakebread was a total disappointment. We were there on a hot Saturday afternoon and the tasting took place in the bright sun with little options for shade. Our guide was quite ridiculous, clearly tired and just going through the motions with no real enthusiasm. I highly suggest that you skip this place! There's too many other good... More

This is likely the most recommended place that we visited. The group that I went with was largely underwhelmed. The employee that gave us our tour was lovely, though chatted at length about things that had no relevance to the tour or the wine. The wine was good, but not our favorite. Based on all of the recommendations it was... More

We went to many wineries but have to say this was the best. We got reservations for the food pairing. The chef has developed wonderful selections to match up with wine. And for sure you can not beat the wine from Cakebread.
