On such a perfect, sunny, California day, this winery conducting all of their tastings on the patio in a very casual way. We got to know the two of the employees here after drinking wine with them for a good hour...and also their winery cat, Olive. We felt like part of the family by the time we left....with a few...

We were referred here by Whitehall Lane Winery, of which I'm a wine club member, just down the road. Wow! How relaxing the atmosphere is here! The setting is beautiful and the young man and woman who educated us on the winery, the wines, and the family were so friendly and made us feel like family! The production is very... More

When you think of Napa wineries most people think of Mondavi, BV, Sterling, Beringer, Stag's Leap, V.Sattui, Coppola. All are great places to visit but they are also very crowded and not very intimate. (Cakebread and Silver Oak are also two of my favorites, not super busy since it's by appointment only.) My wife and I visited a hidden Napa... More

They are the best, we are wine club members and continue to love the wine. It is a great place to stop for a tasting. Make an appointment to be sure they have space!

My wife and I visited the Salvestrin Winery as a stop with Consort Wine Tours. We were extremely glad that he brought us. We had an excellent spot under an umbrella, where we were able to try the wines, enjoy our lunch (that our driver brought), see the vineyard and learn about the winery and the family. Andy was our...

I decided to visit Salvestrin really because it was within walking distance of where I was staying at the El Bonita motel and I wanted to pick up a bottle of sauvignon blanc for the room. It's by appointment only so called them up and told them I my situation, which was one person looking to come by late on... More

If you like small and family involved wineries look no further. The wines are good across the board and reasonably priced. I like their Sauvignon Blanc, Retaggio (Sangiovese blend) and their Cabernet Sauvignon. Rich Salvestrin is a very good wine-maker and will talk to you about the wine if asked. Can not recommend highly enough. Check them out.

I am a wine novice and we had the pleasure of visiting Salvestrin several years ago. It was the undisputed highlight of our trip. We sat outside on a perfect August day, ate lunch and sampled wine. The family invited us into the vineyard, educated us on the history and then brought out a platter of freshly picked grapes. The... More

This winery depicts the real essence of the Napa Valley and it's historic past. It is a sincere and true gem in the small, intimate winery world. Their wines are excellent and the atmosphere is true to the "old" Valley.
