We were in Napa for the week. We had made reservations in advanced for the Historic Tour and Barrel Tasting. The place was busy. We arrived and checked in and it looks like they were not expecting us. At any rate, there were a total of six in the group. Unfortunately, the guy doing the tour walked us through an... More

There was nothing particularly wrong with this vineyard, but nothing that inspired me as much as some of the other vineyards we went to. This is also a matter of preference. After being a little further North in Calistoga, I did not care of the location of this winery, as everything around it has been built up. The staff was... More

Went because it is the house wine of my local in Texas. Pleasantly surprised by the quality of the wines offered in the tasting which were of course far superior to the 'house' wine I am used to. We purchased a nice Pinot Noir and could have bought more. Also bought a nice gift from the array in the tasting... More

Staff was probably tired, we're not really attentive. Wines are ok. Good selection of wines' paraphernalia.

This is a good winery to visit. The price for tasting is high ($20 for the regular, and $35 for the reserve room), but their wines are great! I picked up 2 for 1 coupons at the Napa Visitors Center in downtown Napa, and that made it better, but as usual, the tasting fee is applied to any purchase. The... More

Not very impressive. The tasting helpers were not very friendly. The wine was not particularly good. Too many other better wineries in Napa. I would recommend skipping this one.

We were in between wine tastings and since we had some free time decided to stop by BV. We made the right decision! This winery has some fantastic wines and we really enjoying our tasting. We ended up joining the wine club and are very excited to start receiving shipiments.

The winery has a long and interesting history, serving wines at famous dignitary functions. Their upscale vintages are very nice but their "daily" wines (commonly called BV Coastal) that you typically find in a liquor store are not very good. The winery itself is less charming than many others in the area and the "tour" was not all that exciting.... More

Peter, in the reserve tasting room does a great job. (as does all the rest of the staff too, I might add). To anyone unfamiliar with these wines, what are you waiting for? I joined the wine club immediately! Great deals to be had on a fantastic product(primarily reds). And the staff will also go out of their way with... More

BV produces great value for their large volume wines. We visited the winery for the first time and tasted in their reserve room. Fabulous red wines - cabs and meritage. We also had a great time in their regular tasting room/gift shop. We'll be back next time we're up in Napa Valley!
