Visited on a Sunday morning at 10:30am. And yes, people do drink wine that early. This was up a curvy mountain road and has a gate that they buzz you in. Megan met us at the car with some Chardonnay, which was a very nice touch. I really enjoyed the family atmosphere and intimacy of the tasting. Of all the... More

This was our last stop of the day and we had so much fun at this winery! And it's not just because we had been to three tastings already - Jennifer and Burt Reynolds were perfect hosts! We also had a barrel tasting and it was interesting to taste wines from grapes grown in different soils directly from the barrel.

We had our tasting with Meagan, and she was wonderful. She met us at the door with a nice glass of white. She was very knowledgeable and easy to talk with. The barrel tasting was a nice surprise to get to try. The setting was very peaceful and relaxing. We did not feel pressured to buy wine, but it was... More

Our first stop on our wine tour was great. Meagan met us at the car with a Chardonnay ! She gave us a great tour and tasting and we learned so much! Would love to have met the owners but they were busy! Barrel tasting is the best thank you Meagan & Patrick for taking care of us

Fontanella is a hidden gem. I am in the wine industry and they are only the second club we have joined. The 2 barrel tasting was eye opening as far as how different 2 should can be, and the amazing wine they create when the 2 are blended together in your glass. The wines are very fairly priced, and the... More

Amazing winery with fantastic people working there. We felt so welcomed and were treated like we were special guests. Travel the small distance away from town to visit this extraordinary winery. You will be treated to amazing wines!

We visited here based on the recommendation from the concierge at the inn we were staying at. It proved to be a real stand out experience for us. The drive up became more rustic and once we were "buzzed in" the gate we struck about the great setting. It turned out that we were the only two people there for... More

We booked a tasting based on a recommendation from another winemaker who visited our inn. We told him that we wanted to visit smaller wineries and pick-up some wines that we can't find at our local grocery store. He named a few wineries including Fontanella, and we are so glad he gave us their name because we had an exceptional... More

We visit Napa to find wine that is not in local wine shop. Fontanella fits the description. It is a small place now with excellent wines and the tasting is informative and reasonable. A must visit if you want to taste some of the best wines.
