“A hidden gem in the heart of it all!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012 via mobile

Our tour guide, Nancy, made the experience what it was, but a class act winery. Exceptional wines, and we will certainly be back next time we're in town.

“Good winery tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

we did the "In-depth Educational and tasting tour". A family winery, Cakebread personnel were very friendly....met us with a glass of wine. The tour was thorough and as the title infers, most educational. After touring the facility and the vineyard, we were directed to an outside table for the tasting. Prior to tasting each selection, a process history and definition were provided. This was a very good tour and I would recommend.

“Beautiful Grounds and Knowledgeable Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Cakebread Cellars has gorgeous grounds. The white wine tasting was not only delicious, but very informative. Greg and Shane did a great job teaching us novices about the art of wine.

“Excited to join the club”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

After a day of drinking nothing but bad wine we were skeptical of hitting yet another but so happy we did. We reserved a private tasting and was showing a lovely time by Lia. She walked us through the different wines offered by Cakebread and where in the region the grapes come from. She listened to our thoughts on each wine so she could guide to us the ones we would be happier with. The wine tasting experience was a vacation in itself. They made us feel like we were now part of the Cakebread family. A must of O'Hare going to Napa Valley
