First, I love Clif Bars, so naturally I had to visit the winery. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised by the wines. Whites and reds were perfectly balanced with friendly, knowledgeable staff. They take your time with a tasting, rather than prodding you through like some wineries do. Out of all the wines, the Gertztweiner... More

We had the opportunity to visit and partake at the top of the mountain rather than down at the Velo vino tasting center. Jeff was a great host and has put together a great tasting experience with their wine, exotic cheeses and home grown/made jams/jellies and spices. Just a quality experience all around.

We chose the Refugio wine tasting experience at the Clif Family Vino Velo in St. Helena to celebrate our granddaughter's 21st birthday. It was perfect! Clif Bars are a favorite, but we had no idea that the wine would be so good! Candace led us through 5 tastings (plus an extra-or should I tell?) and provided different and interesting treats,...

We had no idea that the makers of Clif bars also had a winery. We found the tasting room while walking along Main St. after having lunch at Gott's Roadside. Loved hearing about how the winery was started and how Eco friendly the Clif family is about all their products.

We visit Napa and/or Healdsburg at least once per year, and this year one of our favorite new experiences was a Clif tasting we lucked into. We had been at another Howell Mountain tour/tasting that day, packed a picnic lunch because it's quite a track up the hill & had another mountain visit planned later that day. Our driver is... More

We chose to rent bikes through Velo Vino/Clif Family Winery. It was an awesome experience. Arrived in the AM and were treated to our choice of hot beverage and a Clif Bar to go. The bikes we rented were outside waiting for us all labeled and with helmets. The Conastoga Bike Shop called after I made my reservation to get... More

This winery is right on the main road so we were worried it would be overrun with people like many of its neighbors. However, we went for a tasting and were the only ones there! It was such a wonderful experience. The wine was good, the snacks provided were delicious, and the women working the tasting room was pleasant, knowledgable... More

We were so very fortunate to be invited to a private tasting on the vineyard. and OMG- Clif Family Winery, was the best Oasis to be immersed in this private classy back yard with pairings with local great cheeses and jams!

"Why are there so many clif bars in this store?" "Wait a second... they make wine?" This was a unique experience. Sitting down for a tasting paired with various nuts, cookies, chocolates, and chatting with the hosts about cycling. They also make a very good espresso. Make sure you pick up a bottle or two with the signature "Clif" logo.

We also came here aspartame of a tour, however our guide texted the wine maker on the way, and he stayed to chat with us. I really enjoyed most of their wines, liked that they served different nut mixes with the wines, which really did enhance our enjoyment. Nice shop setting with cool cycling stuff and beautiful patio.
