When I explained we were there for a tasting they asked if we had an appointment. Seeing as though I looked at their website the... More

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.
