Prager Port is my favorite place to go for port in St. Helena. Their unique small winery tasting room with the signed dollar bills is fun to go to. The staff is friendly; the tasting pours are good; and the port is so wonderful. We did a shared tasting. We have visited often - usually in December - to get... More

Loved our wine tasting round here! Excellent varieties of port and we especially enjoyed the hazelnut finish in the white port. Currency notes from visitors around the world adorned the walls and ceilings. The owners were super nice and fun! For $20, we tasted 6 wines, could share a glass and also take the glass home. Great deal!

We were told to come here by our Platypus tour guide and we told her we loved port. It is a funky little house that has dollar bills hanging all over the "tasting room." I felt like I was stepping into someone's garage/kitchen. Their port is amazing and we would have bought all of them if we could have afforded... More

This is not your typical wine tasting experience. The ceiling and walls are covered in dollar bills. There is a window with wine bottles covered with spider webs. I had my doubts about it all until one of the Prager's came out and began telling us about the different ports. The port was the best I had ever had! I... More

The tasting was fun, informative and full of stories! They are very cool about letting you try things and compare vintages. We ended up staying a couple hours and bought a case. I would come back just to visit these guys! Super cool people make the experience! I haven't even discussed the port. It is incredible! I lived in Lisbon... More

I don't think I'd ever tasted port before my girlfriend and I stayed at The Inn on First in Napa. We found a bottle of Petite Sirah Port from Prager Winery & Port Works available in the common living room, and I enjoyed a glass both nights that we stayed there. Having been somewhat disappointed the previous day by a... More

$20 for wine tasting, a free glass, and chocolate. The reviews were good so I had to go. In this case my husband and I strongly disagree with the others. The dollar bills all over the walls and ceiling were as dirty and gross as the cobwebs everywhere. We didn't get the chocolate drizzle sample because he couldn't find any... More

The best ports in Napa Vally. Also, one of my favorite tasting rooms. The Prager's are down to earth, and the room is comfy and welcoming. The Tawny and Aria are my favorites, and have been for years! I keep coming back!

Hidden directly behind the Sutter Home Winery in St Helena is a small but outstanding port wine maker. When you walk in it's very unassuming and quaint. In fact over the years people have stapled dollar bills throughout the tasting room.....and there are thousands of them!!! Peter Prager took me through my tasting and I was thrilled to get some...
