Great tasting. Great host.

This was our first tasting ever in Napa. We did 12 more after this one over a few days. They set the bar, and many other, well known wineries could not come close. This one was... read more

This was our first tasting ever in Napa. We did 12 more after this one over a few days. They set the bar, and many other, well known wineries could not come close. This one was so relaxed, with great information and great wine. Worth seeking this one out.

One of the reasons for complete 5 stars was Dan, our host, who was not only jolly, but gave us great information on the wines, their aromas, how to differentiate between alcohol vapors and fruity aromas (me and hubby being newbies in wine world enjoyed this a lot). Their wines were excellent, I especially liked Pinot Noir and Cab. The... More

This was my first tasting experience in Napa and then everything else sort of paled in comparison after that. But! Because of the knowledge you gain, you'll judge every wine thereafter with the tips you learn at Hopper. Dan and Darren were awesome. Only regret is that I didn't buy more wine while I was there.

This was the first stop on our wine tour and for good reason. When you arrive the owner sits down with you and gives you a class on wines, how to taste them, the different flavors to look for and how to look at the wine. The winery was a small winery with a lot of charm. It was not... More

Upon arrival at hopper creek, we weren't all that impressed because it was pretty basic and the view wasn't all that special BUTTT... We loved This place. Excellent wine - the merlot was one of our favorites. The best part of this winery was the great teaching About wine. We learned more here than at any if the other wineries.... More

The guide here was interesting and the tastings were great. Chocolate pairing was a nice touch. We sat outside under a purgala looking out at the vineyards.

This was our last stop of the day on our tour, but we learned more in 2 hours about wines that it felt like a 3 credit course. We had a great time with Darren who provided excellent service and guidance teaching us about both reds and whites. We had tastings on both the front picnic table and the tasting... More

We started our day at Hopper Creek, and nothing else quite lived up to our time there. Darren was an excellent host who taught us an amazing amount of things about wine and product evaluation in such a short period of time. It was the most unpretentious environment one could expect, and I/we immediately felt at ease and relaxed. Their... More

Both Dan and Darren we super friendly and unpretentious. They are passionate about their wine and it shows. They spent the time to really educate us on what we were tasting and the tour took in both their front patio, tasting room and the back patio. This was also the only winery where the hosts partook of the wine!
