We were told that this was one of the best wineries. When we arrived, we were given a glass of white wine and began our walk to the lake overlook, which was beautiful. The host then walked us back to the main building and gave us a tour of the very modern facilities. It was impressive to see how they... More

My wife and I really enjoy Quintessa wine and highlighted this tasting as our most anticipated visit. Unfortunately, we were both very disappointed in the experience. First of all, it's way over priced. We paid $75/ ea. for a simple walk around the winery and a splash of (3) wines. Understanding that they only really make one wine, the least... More

The wine is exceptional, but you really want to see the view behind the winery. It is breathtaking. You will want to get this panoramic view. They have some really cool methods for how they harvest and store their wines.

We were very excited to try Quintessa, it was going to be the highlight of the trip! However we were met by an angry Indian man outside the winery telling us we could not finish our snack (we had come from a different winery prior). He was angry, yelling and I even told him that he was giving us an... More

Wow, what beautiful property they have at this vineyard/winery. Take time to walk around and view the scenery. The tour and wine tasting was very nice. Highly recommend.

Beautiful winery/vineyard. Host was gracious and knowledgeable. The private tour is WELL worth the investment. Will recommend this experience to everyone I know.

We had a lovely experience during our recent visit to Quintessa. The wines were quite good, and we enjoyed the hike and views from the hilltop. The tasting was enjoyable, as well. Recommend it? Indeed, I do! Be sure to bring your wallet because you'll want to take some home!

Truly enjoyed the experience at Quintessa. Our hostess was very friendly and knowledgable about the wines here! We enjoyed a white wine while walking to the hill top to survey the vineyards and once there, were not disappointed with the view. Quintessa has a beautiful property off the Silverado Trail! We tasted the 2009, 2010, & 2011 Cabernet and it... More

Wine tastings are meant to be for tastings, so don't expect huge pours. This winery focuses on one wine which gives the reason to why it is good. The view over the mountains looking over the vineyard and lake is breath taking especially on a clear sky day in March. The architecture of the estate has been rebuilt making it... More

This visit used to be great with generous pours and tasty bites. Now for $75 there are tiny pours three bites of cheese and polite but superficial descriptions. Will certainly take them off our recommendation list. Go to Pride or Spring Mountain or so many others who offer value enthusiasm and expettse
