Small group led by Sonia who was knowledgeable and personable. The wines and paired cheeses were clearly explained. It was easy and enjoyable to sample delicious wine with a beautiful view. New tasting room facilities are gorgeous.

The visitors' rooms are newly constructed. The host explained quite a detail of the vineyard and the wines. The level of wines are good but a bit over priced in reference to European ones.

If you are a serious student and/or consumer of Napa wines, you must go here. Or, if you just love a beautiful view, you must go here. Or, both! Phelps is one of the Napa icons that many know by name but never get around to, perhaps due to price. But, if you are in Napa, you have already incurred... More

This winery is a bit out of the way but don't miss it. It is next door to a cheese store, which happened to be closed, so plan your visit if you'd like to try to cheese which we were told was wonderful. Sad to say we missed it! Our server was both pleasant and knowledgeable which made our visit... More

Read about their cabs and had to stop in. Out of the way, small vineyard. Server was very personable and knew about the wines. Poured ample for tasting and revisiting those we liked. Cabs lived up to their billings! Had to join their wine club, if for nothing else, bottles of their Insignia. We both loved their 2008. ...another club... More

Main house was under renovation so we had the tasting in a temporary area. Our server was very nice, informative, and helpful. Grounds are beautiful.

We really enjoyed tasting the wines the Joseph Phelps has to offer. However, from the get go I was just focused on getting to the Insignia. While I have had if before and enjoy it, it was above and beyond all other wines they have to offer. Undortunately the winery is undergoing a rennovation at the time we went and... More

Went to taste the Phelps wines in St. Helena on a Saturday and make sure you have an appointment on weekends as they get very busy. While they are famous for their Insignia flagship wine, you will really enjoy their whites and their Pinot Noirs from Sonoma. A couple tips if you can plan ahead or come on a weekday.... More

Unlike some of the other wineries that woo you with gorgeous tasting rooms, expansive terraces overlooking lush vineyards, or a lot of what I call "wine rabble rabble," this winery is very laid back and casual. It almost feels like you are at larger than average park in the country hanging out with friends. Despite the casual, go your own... More

This month marks one year since we were last here. The winery has great wine...especially their Insignia wine. No reservations were needed and the tasting costs were low.
