Visited Cakebread Cellars on an extremely hot afternoon and enjoyed our introduction to their famous chardonnays ~ worth the upgraded tasting cost as we learned so much about the carneros and its effect on the fruit and ultimately the wine.

This is our 2nd time back at Cakebread.This is a fantastic winery and should be on everyone's list. We visited in January and found the wines to be outstanding, so much so that we joined the wine club. Their Cabs and Pinots are amazing and they offer some selections only to club members, like Rubaiyat......Tastings are by appointment only, but... More

We called ahead the day before for a tasting. It was just me and my wife. The tasting itself included about 8 other people. The tour was short and pleasant and the tasting itself was enjoyable; the tasting guide was knowledgable and spunky.

A friend told me this is a must stop on tour in Napa Valley. So we called made reservations for few hours later that same day. We were greeted by friendly staff. Ask for Amy to provide your tasting. She was awesome and really made the experience worth it. She was very knowledgeable and friendly.

Found their Chardonnays very tasty. As most of us are red wine drinkers she was impressed with their Chardonnay. Unfortunately compared to Robert Mondavi their wine tasting tour guide was not so enthusiastic about the wines nor that knowledgeable. Plus he was only there 3 months. They should ensure their tour guide showed much more excitement in working there and... More

I have been a member of the Cakebread wine club for many years. They can almost always accommodate wine club members for the free tastings (up to 4 people) that we are entitled to, and when the "wine club patio" is open (which is almost all the time) the servers are knowledgeable and friendly. Wine club events are spectacular, but... More

We make it a point to go to Cakebread whenever we're in Napa, and they've never disappointed! We are also now wine club members, as their wines are outstanding. Their tour is always very personable, and we always have a great time whenever we're here! I would HIGHLY recommend that you make reservations, as they will turn you away if... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the paella and appetizer cooking class. We had a group of six with varying interest and skill levels and to the person each of us loved the experience! The chefs and staff were so welcoming and approachable , no intimidation and we learned so much about cleaning squid,shrimp, mussels, clams and sectioning whole chickens. Great wines of... More
