Ok I'll admit it, I usually go to the places where you can get a free tasting if you buy a bottle, and rub shoulders with some tourists that smell of suntan lotion. This was very different! The entire experience is there to focus on the wine...very personal, private, almost secluded. Our host Mo really described the spirit of the... More

This is a beautiful vineyard that makes amazing wines. Its not cheap or for tourists, but if you know wine and want to try something that stands out, its a great tour and tasting. Make a reservation. I rate it in my top 5 in all of Napa (out of more than 30 tours done)

We opted for the estate wine tour which consisted of a private wine tasting in a beautiful small wine tasting room overlooking the vineyard. Included in the tasting were not only the current vintage, but also library vintages so we could compare the effects of aging on the estate wines. The tour also included a meat and cheese platter to... More

My amazing husband took us here to get engaged in March of 2013. The trip to Napa and engagement were a complete surprise and I have Quintessa to thank for making it such a wonderful experience. We were booked in for a private tour and Kina took us around the winery and vineyard. She was such a sweetheart and I... More

Our party of four booked the Quintessa Experience on the recommendation of a friend and are very glad we did. The facility itself is stunning, and we started with some sauvignon blanc there before piling into a dune buggy with our guide, Eduardo, and heading up a very steep track to the tasting room. The view is spectacular in and... More

We love Quintessa wine and have very fond memories of the special location of this superb winery. We stopped by today to quickly observe the on-going harvest operation and to sip a wee bit of the 2011 release; the product seemingly gets better each and every year!

This winery was recommended by a friend but the experience was quite ordinary. The private tour was not much of a tour. We simply looked at the vineyard from a hill for 2 minutes and then went into the processing area which was more or less the same as everywhere else. The guide kept asking the same questions trying to... More

My boyfriend, a true collector, has many bottles of Quintessa in his collection and has been trying to convert me from my usual Syrah and Pinot to true Cabernet. I booked the Quintessa Experience which at $125 a person may have seemed extravagant but it was very enjoyable. The winery itself is gorgeous. Vast vineyards and a lake along with... More

We visited 15 vineyards on our trip to Napa in June. Without a doubt this was our favorite. The host was fantastic. The views were amazing, as was the wine cave. The tasting was nicely paced and we never felt under pressure to purchase the wines. Of course, the wine itself was spectacular. This is 1 of only 2 or... More

For some reason, they "lost" our reservation even though I had an email confirmation and kept showing it to the manager.. They refused to honor it, and said we could come back in three days or something ridiculous, at some heinous time such as 9 or 10 am. RUDE!
