“Great stop during our Napa tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2008

Great winery on your trip up through the Napa Valley. They have an updated, high-quality winery that provides a very informative tour with some really great wines.

We didn't realize you needed an appointment (would recommend getting one) - but they were very accomadating to show us around. Our tour guide was great and we tried some very excellent reds and whites there.

Our favorite was their reserve chardonnay - tasted like butter on your lips. Great little stop - would definitely stop by!

“A Cool Story”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2007

My wife and I were in Napa during the harvest and I would have to agree with the prior review, if you can make the trip in September, there's a lot more to do and partake in.
We did the tour and it was nice and the tour guides are very good at what they do, the story of Cakebread is really a cool story and very informative with regards to what goes on in Napa, but we were restricted to just the tour.
The idea of going in September and tasting the grapes, along with nice weather is definitely worth the experience.
You will need reservations!

“great wine, nice tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2007

We made a stop at Cakebread this fall - called on the morning we wanted to go and managed to get in for the tour - you have to book ahead for tastings and tour but its worth it. Their wine is excellent, the tour was pretty quick but informative, we went out into the vineyard and ate grapes straight from the vines then got taken back into the barrel room. Our tour guide was very pleasant and friendly, as was the checkout guy who advised us on our next destination. Since you have to book to get in, the tasting was much more personal than one of the 'show up and drink' places. They also have a fresh produce stand next to the parking lot where you can pick up local fruit and veg, works on an honor system where you just leave the cash in a bowl. Cute!
