Hans Fahden Winery is absolutely gorgeous with their Monet Gardens and hillside site. Their tasting room includes a relaxing, beautiful cave. Their wines are outstanding! Staff is friendly and not typical Napa.

Stewart and Shelley were the perfect hosts! We were a group of 6 celebrating a milestone birthday, and enjoyed enjoyed talking with them and meeting several other members and guests. Not only is the wine incredible, the property is stunning! We had our tasting at the lookout which offered such an amazing view of the valley and surrounding mountains. We also toured the gardens and cave, which are truly spectacular! No wonder this is a top venue for weddings.

At the very end we had an opportunity to meet the owner - what a genuinely nice person! We were sorry when it was time to leave for our dinner reservation in Napa.

Looking forward to getting my wine shipment and sharing the experience and wine with friends!

We truly welcomed the peacefulness of the gardens at Hans Fahden Winery off Petrified Forest Road in Calistoga, CA. Of course, the Cabernet which was generously poured, contributed (no tasting fee)! Sitting in the big chairs on the deck, I felt like I was at one of those posh East Coast resorts, but with a view of the California hills, the hummingbirds at the feeder and the lake with its profusely blooming waterlilies. This is a wonderful spot for a garden wedding with dining in caves tucked into Diamond Mountain.(I know! My son was married here seven years ago.)

Unique winery in the hills above Calistoga, built more for weddings than producing great wine. Ground and gardens certainly lovely but wine was mediocre.

Hans Fahden is a paradise, close to Calistoga yet the location is adjacent to the Petrified Forest. There are hand carved caves, pathways that lead you over covered bridges past lily ponds and beautiful displays of lush landscaping. Enjoy a tasting or glass of wine while touring around. The Cab, blends, Sauv Blanc are lucious, fruit forward, soft finish and fabulous. Highly recommend this winery.

Absolutely beautiful property with delicious wines. Shellie is amazing and does a fabulous job. The caves are so beautiful as well as the gardens and magical pond full of Lilly pads. what a treat. Go out of your way to visit this gem.

We went to wedding here at the end of September. It is a very easy place to get to. Petrified Forest Road is paved and has excellent signage. When you drive up, stay to the left for guest parking. It is on top of a mountain so at first you can't see the beauty of this gem. The views were phenomenal. The setting has it all!. Lush gardens, wooden structures supporting vines and views of surrounding vineyards. The ceremony area overlooks a pond with lily pads. The décor supplied by the florist was breathtaking. It is surreal. Then you get to meet Sue Luna and the incredible staff!!. Cocktail hour overlooks hillsides with sunlit vineyards. Wine was from Hans Fahden but also had other vineyards in the area brought by the bride/groom. (No corkage fees). The reception/dinner area was in a cave!!!. We walked into this area with Harry Potter music and it truly felt magical. Food was sensational. Best wedding ever. Cake was delicious. Photographer was extremely professional. Their vendors are perfect for this venue. We found this on the knot. The guests traveled from the east coast as well as the mid west. Everyone raved. Do not miss this experience.

Almost 11 years ago to the date we got married at Hans Fahden Winery. My now husband said I could plan our wedding but his one wish was that the ceremony be at a winery. The moment we entered through the Monet garden, I knew this was the place. Our wedding was perfect, and they could not have been nicer or more helpful. Not sure which of their policies have changed through the years, so I won't go into too much detail. Suffice to say, whatever they were made planning and budget so much easier. This is a place so beautiful you don't need to dress the space much. We ate in the gorgeous cave with a sit down dinner, and gladly served their superb wine. We live in Marin, and each time we visit Calistoga, we make the drive up there to walk the winery and think fondly about our wedding day. Planning a visit next week, as a matter of fact. Highly recommend.

We attended a wedding at this truly magical property and were continually astounded by its beauty and uniqueness. From the incredible gardens surrounding the property to the disney-like setting inside the wine cellars, this is truly a special place to hold your special events.

My son was recently married at Hans Fahden Winery and there is only one word to describe our experience - MAGNIFICENT! The staff was attentive and provided guidance throughout the ceremony, cocktail hour and dinner. The venue is fabulous! The tea house was decorated beautifully and the wine cave was stunningly lit! The food was delicious and cooked to perfection. Thank you Hans Fahden staff and management for giving us a lifetime memory!
