My wife and I were looking for something more than the typical Napa big producer wine tasting room experience and we found it here! We will visit Heibel and it's owner, Trent, every time we return to the area. We spent several hours in a picnic setting drinking great wine; enjoying cheeses, meats, bread, olives and chocolate; and having a... More

Definitely a must have in Napa. One of the best tastings. Beautiful drive to get there. The property itself is geogous. The owner, Trent, has done a phenomenal job with that tasting, it was nice and personal. Very elegant wine was paired with bread, chese and salami. It felt like a picnic with an old friend over a few hours.... More

What a neat experience. My wife and I went to Napa for our 20th anniversary, and this was her favorite thing we did. I was just so much different than the other wine tasting experiences. Try some great wine and learn all about how a vineyard is run in the beautiful outdoors.

If you find yourself a bit tired of the pretentiousness of many Napa wine tastings, take a trip out to Heibel for a down-to-earth experience in the back country of Napa. Proprietor Trent G. and his golden lab Chachi are the perfect companions for tasting HRV's wine under the trees next to the vineyard. This was our second trip to... More

Definitely a stand-out of our recent visit to the Napa area. Glad we allowed extra time for the trip over Howell Mountain to Pope valley - the roads are very twisty buy the scenery is fantastic. There are not many vineyards where the owner/winemaker takes the morning to show you around and give you a personal tour, including tasting some... More

Leaving Napa Valley and heading over to Pope Valley was like a trek back in time. We hopped into Trent's 4Runner, with his dog in the back and headed up the trail. He first drove us through the ruins of an old golf club compound with ties back Ronald Reagan and famous actors of the early days of Hollywood. We... More

A MUST experience!!! My groups favorite winery of our entire trip (we visited 7 vineyards). I came across this vineyard just from researching on the internet. It's small and you don't even get to visit the vineyard...BUT don't let that scare you away! Also, it's further out than most vineyards (about an hour away from downtown Napa) and while driving,...

Add this one to the top of your list! I read the review posted that outlines the tour, so I will not repeat those details. But, it was great and the highlight of our trip. We toured/tasted four wineries and this one was our favorite for sure. The unique experience is very much worth it. I would highly recommend this... More

We wanted to do something different to celebrate our anniversary trip to Napa and Trent’s tour was just the thing we were looking for - something unique and off the beaten path. After meeting him at the appointed place, we were treated to a down-to-earth tour without any pretention but with relaxed style. Trent and his four-legged mascot, Chachi, (who... More

Our visit to Heibel Ranch was the highlight of our trip to Napa. A true insider's feel from start to finish. This was an incredibly unique and personalized experience touring the small but productive vineyard and the hilly, wild backcountry property surrounding it with the owner Trent on his old sky-blue military jeep. (his yellow lab running alongside through the... More
