We had only had time to pick one winery for a tasting during our visit to Napa Valley and Elyse was recommended by our accommodation. Such an amazing experience!!

It is a smaller vineyard without all the hype. The wines were superb and the selection of wines to taste based on the customer preferences instead of a set group of wines that are meant to appeal to everyone was truly remarkable. There was never any rush or major sales pitch, they let the wines speak for themselves and it was such a wonderful social experience learning about their wines and many other aspects of wine production that we had never understood before.

Highly recommend reserving an appointment for a tasting at Elyse if you have the opportunity.

Great wines. Really unique Sonoma coast Pinot - especially if you like cabs. Something for every type of wine drinker. Khris was a great host- both entertaining and informative. 3 couples tasted (at least?) 8 wines. One joined their wine club and all 6 tasting fees were waived. Best experience of the 9 wineries we visited over 3 days.

We scheduled a tasting here before our trip to Napa, having previously visited the winery. We were excited to try it again, given that the ownership had changed since our last visit.

We had a wonderful and highly personalized tasting experience. We tasted outside, given the pandemic; a tent over our table kept the sun away, which was appreciated.

Cubby led our tasting. He was hysterical, highly personable, and really knowledgeable. We had a blast! Just like last time, the Elyse wines were delicious—primarily Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon, along with a couple of blends. Big wines! What made this visit even more interesting than our first is that Elyse’s relationships with several other small wineries allowed us to taste more wines—including from some places that do not have their own tasting facilities. Many of these were spectacular. Cubby also did a really nice job pouring a couple of wines together and leading a comparative conversation.

This is a great experience—these are great wines, the tasting experience is fun and accessible, and you get to try things you would not get to try elsewhere. A must do, in our view!

We love Elyse and made sure to visit this time. It was an okay tasting experience, not because of the staff or the wine. Both were good. We sat in a middle room, felt like we were teenagers in someone's basement. Not sure why, but it tainted the experience for sure.

We heard about Elyse from some friends and decided on a whim to stop by. Garrett greeted us at the door and invited us in. He was personable, friendly, funny and very helpful to learn more about their wines and Napa Valley. We learned more from him in our hour visit than all the other winery visits we had last week. He really made our trip special and we will soon join their wine club. The cabs are excellent and so are some of their special blends. We really loved the wines but it was Garret who won us over to Elyse!

We have been wine club members at Elyse for almost 15 years. We loved the old Elyse under Ray and Nancy and we love the new Elyse with Christopher and Joshua. The wines there have always been terrific at price points you dont usually see in Napa anymore, plus you get a wide variety of wines from zins to cabs to petite sirah and merlot from multiple vineyards. We have always had a great experience tasting there and based upon our last (almost) 2 hours tasting we are sure this will continue. One addition you get with the new owners is possibly an opportunity to taste some of their own wines under the Addax or Standard Deviation labels. These are a real treat as well. Thanks for the great tasting experience at an old favorite. And thanks to Laura for hosting us. Make an appointment at this winery. You will be very impressed!

Great wine, adorable little spot and we looooved the dog Hank! He steals the spotlight but we did not leave this winery empty handed! This place requires an appt and its just a tiny little place with a small tasting bar but it was delicious.

Definitely try and make this one of your stops along the way. It's off the main street and you can walk off a little tasting down the street or in the vineyards.

I am a local, so I don't really go wine tasting very often. I have a very short list of my favorite places to take visitors. So much of Napa Valley is fake and bling-y. Elyse is down to earth and unpretentious. Still Family owned, small and intimate. For a long time, they were the last winery that didn't charge for tastings. That's had to change because otherwise you just go to the top of the yelp search for "free wine tastings." They will waive the fee if you purchase. Some places won't.

The wines are very well made and not as expensive as many of the wineries around here. The style is BIG. They are known for their cabs, zin, and petite syrah, but my favorite is the Rhone blend. They co-ferment it with Viognier. It's so good!

When in Napa a visit to Elyse winery should be on your "must visit" list. Great wines, wonderful staff, "homey" feeling in the tasting room. Did I mention the wines are excellent? Seriously consider joining the wine club; you will not be disappointed.

We arrived on 4/20 to this vineyard. We had so much fun. Garrett was our host. He was amazing! We met Kaylee in our wine tasting group who was a hoot. We will be back for Easter next year! Amazing , fun place to Visit. Thanks to all staff there! Absolutely amazing.
