At first I was disappointed to see that I would be having a wine tasting in a trailer type temporary building. I was hoping for something a bit more scenic. But, these people are SO friendly! They are remodeling, and the new facility will be finished I believe they said in August of 2015 or so. The wines here are... More

For some the fact that Goosecross currently has a trailer setup as its tasting room may take away from the experience. However, you should not be discouraged. Goosecross has a great tasting staff that interacts with guests on a personal level (not just lecturing about wine). They are both funny and fun to be with. In addition to that the... More

This is a small boutique winery with small production wines. Tasting was awesome with good variety of wines from several regions of California. The variety showed tasteful variations from the Napa area but also Sonoma. The staff were talkative and informative to everyone who entered the room. The winery is under renovation so the room was temporary so not the... More

Elisabeth helped make this stop so great! She gave us great recommendations for the rest of our trip through San Francisco and Napa. We loved the wines here, too. They're building a new tasting room, which looks amazing. So glad we stopped here!

We visited many of the wineries in this area. Goosecross was our favorite by far! Each of the employees made a point to speak to and converse with us. They made our tasting very personable. It's a small tasting area, with a big feel, and big fun! It's a little off of the beaten path, so don't skip out on... More

We stopped in mid-morning while on a bike ride through the vineyards. The tasting room is nice and casual, our hostess was very friendly and unpretentious.

We selected Goosecross because of the great reviews on tripadvisor, and we were so happy with the visit. Denise was great! Very approachable, fun, and informative. She made the entire experience. Great wines, too! We highly recommend this location when looking for places to visit around Yountville.

We had an excellent day at Goosecross winery today. As described in several other reviews, Jose did not disappoint. He was an excellent host and very knowledgeable, especially to 2 non-wine connoisseurs! We had the opportunity to see some of the harvested fruit from today and spoke to a few of the workers about the process. They were very informative... More

This summer my husband and I took our first trip out to Napa Valley. We rented bikes and decided to make this one of our last stops of our bike trip. It was by far our favorite winery we stopped at. It did not feel big and commercial and the customer service was phenomenal. The people were really friendly and... More
