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!

We had a private tour here and it was really nice. Our guide was awesome, a wealth of knowledge. The tasting was amazing and the wine here is just wonderful!

We recently toured this place with 3 other couples. The winery couldn't be more picturesque! Do yourself a favor and take the tour of the vineyard. It's one of the best views in Napa! Our tasting was the vertical variety, and we tried the 2008. 2009 2010, and the just-released 2011. It was really interesting to see how the flavors... More

Very nice hosting on a rear to find all natural estate. Holistic approach to grape care makes that bio-dinamic wine a unique one. Worth visiting in any case if you like the wine or not.

Ask for David, the manager, he is absolutely hands down the perfect host. Very informative, a gentleman, and very attentive. I have been drinking Quintessa since the late 90's, and we were able to taste 4 different years, my favorite and believe to be the most similar to when Quintessa first became noticed, is the 2010. Perfect smooth balance, and... More

Quintessa only makes one wine and it isn't cheap, but it is a beautiful wine. We have visited Quintessa twice, and each time has been a great experience. You get to taste a vertical of three vintages of the Quintessa cabernet sauvignon, served with a small plate of meat and cheeses. Each time our tour guide has been excellent, showing... More

Quintessa makes only one wine, so your tasting experience is a vertical of the 2008, 2009, and current 2010 vintages. Presented with a cheese platter at a comfortable table by an informative host who had great knowledge of the wines and interesting personal stories. Never feeling rushed our host poured the 2006 and 2007 vintages as well. Included was an... More
