“Not very friendly... actually rude...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2012

Don't waste your time the tasting room staff can be above it all.
They did not care if I was there even though I was buying wine but quickly cancelled my order.

“They say best pinot in Napa Valley; I say overhyped”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2012

In my opinion, Robert Sinskey is probably not worth a visit. They are billed as having the best pinot in the area, and it was certainly okay, but not as good as many others I have had, yet far more expensive. Tasting fee is a bit pricey at $20 or so, which comes with a little tasting platter of h'ors d'oeuvres, but still not justified. The grounds and tasting room are nothing special, pretty typical (or maybe even below average for the area, considering how many locations here have beautiful scenery or architecture).

All in all not a very memorable experience. In general, Napa is not the place to go if you want good pinot (especially if you like more mineral/earthy, delicate, or tea-tasting ones like I do), but Etude in Carneros has the best Sonoma/Napa pinots I have tried.

Very friendly and unpretentious. They serve little bites of food with their tasting.

“Biodyamic Caneros Grapes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

This is a great building surrounded by wonderful food gardens. The vineyards are down in Carneros other than the Cab that surrounds the winery. The food pairing is very good and the staff is nice, although for these prices they could be a bit more educational. Fun time.

“Special Treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012 via mobile

Fantastic small vineyard that specializes in Pinot Noir. The snacks that are a part of the experience included in your tasting fee are delicious & some come right out of their brick oven.
