My husband is a cyclist, and we've been visiting this winery for years. The antique bikes and posters are interesting. We went on a quiet Sunday (Super Bowl). We shared the $20 flight and the $40 flight. When we went to make a purchase, we were surprised by the policy. The tasting fee is comped if you purchase 2 bottles... More

Nice low key spot recommended from the guys at Lava Vine. Nothing pretentious going on here. Grab something to eat if you want off the food truck and then go inside and pair it with some wine. Actually, outside in the back looks nice if the weather is warm (it was cold when we went). Our only regret is we... More

Here's a name to remember--Jeff Blaum. We travel to Napa at least twice a year and we met Jeff many years ago when he was with Chase Vineyards. He has found a new home at Clif Family and it is an excellent match. His knowledge of wines and food is second to none. We stayed at the Cold Springs estate... More

The wine is great but the experience is what makes this one of my favorite wineries in the world. Samantha is a pro and took us through a wine journey. We ordered food from the truck and it was a tantalizing taste of joy. Definitely set some time aside for this one. This is for the true wine enthusiast as... More

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
