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

We have been to Napa several times, and absolutely LOVE Goosecross!! Denise and Michael are very passionate about what they represent, and our experience was once again excellent. They produce lovely wines at reasonable prices. We were club members, dropped out a few years ago, and signed back up on our past visit. They have a great program with different... More

We loved going to goosecross and will return. The staff talked about each wine and taught us what to do before tasting. Really enjoyed the sweet wines!

I'm sorry I forgot our tasting leader's name, who was very gracious to take us despite us being late. The were six of us that WCI's Marty Paradise took us to GC. Despite there being three couples, she individualized our tasting depending on what kind of wine we liked. Don't forget to try and buy the bacon flavored chocolate bars!

This was a great stop on our whistlestop tour of the Napa Valley. We really enjoyed tasting the wines and the proprietor was lovely to speak to, so enthusiastic about the wines and the vineyard. We enjoyed boring her about English Vineyards and hearing tales of her trip to Yosemite... The wines were fantastic and I was gutted I couldn't... More

This was by far the best stop of our trip to Napa. We went there at the recommendation of the driver we hired and I'm so glad we found them. Jose made our visit at Goosecross absolutely spectacular. He is equally friendly, hilarious and just a ton of fun to talk to. There was another woman working at the time... More

Goosecross Cellars is not razzle-dazzle, but I am here to tell you that it was so much fun! I highly recommend it! As other reviewers have written, Jose really made the experience for us. He is a peach! I loved how he would pour a glass of wine and say, "Do you love it, or does it make you angry?... More
