The Clif family Winery was one of the best wineries in Napa. They are owned by the CIif family that makes the Clif and Luna bars. The tasting was wonderful and the parring of food was exceptional. I would highly recommend the Clif family winery.

So as not to leave too lengthy a review, let me instead simply say that we were truly blown away by the hospitality we were shown here, Samantha was a fantastic hostess ! The wine itself is very good, but it was the over the top service we received that prompted us to join the "Clif Family" as club members;... More

This is a winery/tasting from the people who make the Clif bar. The wines are okay for the $20 tasting, we didn't do the reserve for $40, and we are glad we didn't as the wines seemed sort of flat and not worth the $20 tasting. We definitely won't come back.

Their bruschetta pairing is delightful! Full disclosure: I like food as much as wine and like to have some food at wine tastings to break up the tastings and stay vaguely sober. Their nut and chocolate products are delightful and the bruschetta trio was divine. Candace was down to earth and knew how to pair things well. It was a... More

We had a wonderful time at this tasting room with Samantha and her co worker. We didn't get his name (he was the bald guy!). He and Samantha were just great. We shared the tasting and loved everything we tasted. We had a bruschetta from the truck and that was delicious. We bought a couple of bottles to take home.... More

Velo Vino feels more like a wine bar than a tasting room. That's okay, but you need to know this fact before stepping inside. If you want to sit around and munch on a light lunch or bruschetta and have a glass or two of wine, this is your spot. There were lots of cyclists and other hippie / outdoorsy... More

Perfect is all I can say. I set up a Corp dinner and wine tasting with Jeff B from Clif Family Winery and it was outstanding. Jeff B was so easy to work with and the food was out of this world. We had about 30 people and every single person said one of the best meals and experience every,... More

I didn't know much about Clif wines, so I thought it might be worthwhile to try them. I liked their zin most of all. They had a gewurtztraminer and sauvignon blanc that were poured, and then a grenache, the zin, and a howell mountain cab. I was prepared to like the howell mountain cab, as that is a favorite AVA...

This was by far the best spot we stopped in Napa and not just because we're avid runners - which is a must see if you are. There is a ton of memorabilia from different cycling events and the place is more of a bistro than a typical Napa winery where you're buying flights and bottles. They also have a... More
