A few decades ago, Napa Valley wine makers were often told that their wines would never stand up to the European elite. Since proving the world wrong in the mid 1970's, Napa valley winemakers have striven to keep up a more American standard of excellence, where great wine is equal parts a result of the best grapes, the best processes, and only the strongest love for the art of winemaking. Gustavo Wines cherishes this environment, and has grown one owner's extreme love of making wine into an established winery. As a family business, the same processes that landed Gustavo Brambila a spot in the Napa Valley elite are passed down amongst the generations, preserving a rich heritage and art. Today, patrons are invited to come sample our wines, and hopefully fall in love with them half as much as the owners themselves. Wine tastings run for around $15, but are complimentary with the purchase of a bottle. For our buyers that just couldn't get enough, we've established our very own Wine Club which lets us ship our best wines to your doorstep. In the words of Gustavo Brambila himself, "Gustavo Wine is a reflection of my passion, heritage and lifetime love affair with wine. Winemaking is an artform and when others appreciate what I love, solidifies myself as an artist!". When done right, winemaking is a beautiful art-form, and we invite you to come experience it for yourself.

Gustavo's claim to fame is being part of the team at Chateau Montelena that surprised the world in the late '70's by winning a blind taste test by the world's premier connoisseurs in France. For whatever reason, the wines they pour from his latest creation just aren't to our liking. In a valley full of amazing wine and tasting rooms,... More

I was the only one in there on a Thursday afternoon so I got all the attention. Great tasting room. The gentleman pouring was quite a bit of knowledge about the wines and the background of this winery. The Cabs were fantastic as was the Syrah. The tasting room is located right across the street from the Oxbow Marketplace. You... More

I wish I had written down the name of the girl that poured our tastings for us. I do know that she was from Alabama since half my group was from Tennessee (college football was discussed). We went into Gustavo while in Downtown Napa using our tasting card (Gustavo is not part of the card but was on our list... More

Essentially hole-in-the-wall, but a lovely place to visit if you're a newbie to Napa for the following reasons: 1) It's conveniently located across the street from Ox Fam market, which is a lovely stop to buy handmade Napa chocolates, fresh bread, and cheeses (see review). 2) It's in downtown Napa, which has the Napa Welcome Center (maps, publications, magazines etc)....
