We were on our way to an appointment at 11:00 and we wanted to make a quick stop in to a tasting room on our way up the hill. The night before a few locals asked if we had ever been to this winery. I looked it up and it had A LOT of positive reviews. My hesitation was it... More

On a previous visit to Wine Country, someone we met suggested that my wife and I try this winery on the Silverado Trail. So when we returned in April 2016, we decided to visit this winery on our first day. We're glad we visited. We opted for the Signature Tasting ($30 pp), which we had pre-reserved. We tasted a white... More

Been here before and love their chards in particular but they have many more great wines available. Interesting tasting room with sculpture and panache.

We chose James Cole on a recommendation. After much confusion created by me, we were warmly welcomed by Travis. We were the only ones there so it was great to have that one on one experience. If we ever get to a point when we are ready to become members, this would be the winery. For now we just bought... More

We were SOOOO impressed! Not only of all the wines but of the service! Brynne (oh, man...I knew I'd forget how to spell her name!! 😩). She was an absolute doll! We thought she was about 21 years old and then she showed us a darling picture of her with her 14 year old daughter!!! She made our experience extra... More

We enjoyed our wine tasting at James Cole Winery; we prefer red wines and liked he cabernet sauvignon the best. Since it was Christmas the winery was nicely decorated for the holiday season. Drummer boys and a Santa were positioned by the door as holiday decorations.

We have been enjoying James Cole wines for many years and try to visit the winery every time we are in Napa, and they exceeded our expectations once again! We had an appointment so we were able to sit and enjoy our tasting of current releases at a leisurely pace. We never felt rushed, and Travis was very knowledgeable of... More

My husband and I spent nearly 2 hours at James Cole, sampling very generous pours on the beautiful covered patio. We arrived early for our appointment but were greeted graciously and invited to relax. Rachel brought the wines to us and was so engaging, we ended up chatting with her for hours, while she left the other poor employee to... More

Small, privately owned winery. We pre booked a mid week morning visit and it was very quiet and they had a couple of tastings going at the same time but made the effort to put each one in a different location to ensure a private experience which was a nice touch. From the moment we arrived we felt welcome by... More

We visited James Cole winery on a friend's recommendation...and while the setting was beautiful the atmosphere and wines had something to be desired. We did not have an appointment but as there were only 2 of us we thought it would not be an issue. There was another couple there and we were greeted in a rather coarse way by... More
