I've been to to Napa nearly 10 times and Velo Vino is one of my favorite stops for a quick tasting and a much needed bite. The winery, tasting room and Bruchetteria food truck are owned by the founders of Clif bar and they offer a great laid back patio to enjoy lunch or a evening wine and some unbelievable... More

This place is a tasting room with a patio with tables where you can eat food from a foodtruck. Right from the start we were greeted with a warm welcome. The staff is very friendly and down to earth. The lady attending us took the time to explain in detail the history of the winery and each wine we tasted,... More

We did the Vin and velo package here which does require reservations. When you arrive, they have coffee and a Clif bar for you as well as custom fit bikes with helmets. They also give you a map with multiple bike routes (of varying difficulty) to pick from. After our ride of breathtaking views of Lake Berryessa, we went in... More

I had no idea Clif Family produced wine until a friend recommended I stop by the tasting room while I was in St. Helena for Easter Brunch. [Wines] They produce a fun range of wine varieties, most locally sourced. Personally, I enjoyed the whites. My favorites were the Sauvignon Blanc + Gewurtraminer! But, I plan to be back so I...

Food was delicious, great vibes and energy from the friendly staff, don't miss it! The bruschettas are to die for. Perfect for sharing. There are tables to sit down under the shade and enjoy a glass of wine from the tasting room.

This is not your traditional stuffy tasting room; this is Clif (as in Clif Bar) and was absolutely awesome! This is a family run winery and the only place you can get Clif wine - which we absolutely loved! We had a great time with John, our wine tasting host and tri-athlete, and could not have been more pleased with... More

My husband and I visited Clif on a recent trip to Napa Valley. This was our least favorite tasting of all. The wines just didn't stand up to the others, and the tasting room didn't have the authentic feel that we had seen the rest of our trip. Clif has a great location in St. Helena (super cute town), but... More

While on cycling tour of the Napa Valley we discovered this little winery & it's food truck. Stop for a bite of lunch & throughly enjoyed the food & the atmosphere. Did not try the wine because we had more cycling to do but the winery is a fun spot especially if you are cyclist.

We were lucky enough to do a tasting at the Clif Family's small tasting room on top of Howell Mountain. Jeff, our host, was knowledgeable, fun, and clearly passionate about wine and food. Each of the wines we tasted had a unique cheese/preserve/spice pairing that Jeff had previously picked out, and everything was amazing - we couldn't leave without buying... More

The best part of our Clif wine tasting was the bruschetta truck. The ambiance is geared more for their biking crowd, which was not for us.
