This place was just down the road from Chateau Montelena and it was well worth the stop. They are a small batch winery with some surprisingly great wines. We took home a half a dozen bottles. The staff was helpful and knowledgeable. Don't forget to slip you guide a tip.

We've been wine tasting and spa hopping in Calistoga more times than I can count. I don't know how we happened to miss Envy! I purchased a priority wine pass and thankfully Envy was one of the wineries on the list. What a precious gem. For our anniversary, I arranged for the hubby and I to do some wine tasting... More

Generous pours, wonderful friendly staff, good wines mark Envy Wines. Also shared by Carter Cellars, an upscale provider of fabulous Cabernet which routinely score 93-95 by RP (reservations for that tasting are required).

A beautiful boutique vineyard and a good place to picnic; the wines that we tasted were average and the service could be improved.

This winery is a little hard to find. It's off the beaten path in Calistoga but worth the drive. The wines are surprisingly good and the tasting room is lovely and not at all pretentious. The tasting room staff was very knowledgable and gave us his full attention until we were finished, while still helping two other groups. The wines... More

Envy makes some great wines, and their tasting room is well worth a visit. The staff is very knowledgable, not pretentious, and great guides as they explain the various wines. We thought the prices were reasonable for the quality; a mixed case is on its way home.

My wife and I visit Napa annually and usually start on the South end and never make it up towards Calistoga and the wineries there. This was our first stop of the day and we were very impressed with the quality of their wines. I loved the Bee Bee blend and have some in transit. My wife loved their Sauv... More
