    Team Building in Napa
    I recently hosted a team building event in Napa and Baldacci was one of three places we stopped. Kellie (General Manager) guided our 13 person group through a very intimate and thorough tour of the expansive grounds, cave and indoor tasting of wines/charcuterie. This was our last stop and as Kellie put it, we were a lively, yet tolerable bunch, lol. Nevertheless, she did manage to keep us engaged enough so that we could really enjoy the wines. We started with sparking and transitioned to tasting a Chardonnay. They age in oak barrels so I the Chard drank really well. It was bright with a smooth, buttery texture and hints of vanilla and fruit, it worked well for me on a 90 degree summer day in Napa. The Pinot was next; it was light linger on the front; it was easy to drink because it wasn't highly acidic but others in my group didn't care for it as much. To cap off the tasting, we tasted two Cabs, one from Stag's Leap and the other from Calistoga. Both were really good but the only distinction I could see was acidity balance and tannins but everyone will taste something different based on their palate. Needless to say, I enjoyed the experience and wine so much that I joined their club. I would highly recommend it if you looking to get off the mainstream beat and path of Hwy 29 and are looking for a more intimate experience.
    Thank you for taking the time to leave such a thoughtful review! We are so glad that you and your team enjoyed your recent visit, and we look forward to seeing you again soon. Cheers!

    Exceptional Experience
    My husband and I had a late day Portfolio Tasting… our host Andre was so informative and guided us through the variety of wines from various districts. The wines are delicious, the interior is so comfortable and the family vineyard feel is so present and invites you in. The views are beautiful and the outdoor areas look just as inviting as the interior. Definitely add Baldacci Family Vineyard to your list of “must visit”. Their cave tasting was highly recommended to us by other hosts at other vineyards we visited during our trip to Napa Valley, we will save that for our next visit.
    Thank you for the detailed review! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed an informative and delicious tasting, and we hope you are able to visit again soon for our All Cabernet Tasting with Cave Tour. Cheers!

    One of the best wines in the region. Amazing tasting experience.
    This is one of my favorite wine makers in the region. Our host Andres did a great job introducing us to their portfolio red wines. All the cabs where 100% single vineyards and they were all great. Andres explained the history behind Baldacci as we explore their vines and the brand new tasting building which will be amazing when completely decorated. We became club members and we expect to enjoy more wines soon. Thanks for the experience Baldacci Family.

Baldacci was our second tasting on Saint Patrick's Day. We toured the cave, learned about the process and most importantly, got to taste. The wine, mainly Cabernet, was excellent. However, what I really liked here was the tasting facility. It was really well designed with good seating inside and out for small groups and parties as big as ours. I also have to say, the setting here was probably the best of any winery we visited. It felt like a commercial for the kind of place you were supposed to drink wine. Great wine, great setting and simply a great visit when in the Napa Valley.

To have a "favorite" part of visiting Baldacci Family Winery would require one aspect standing out above the other aspects, & I can't say that it can apply. EVERYTHING about doing a tasting or tour there is exceptional & completely enjoyable. The tasting room is designed with total comfort & to be pleasing to the eye in mind. The host we've enjoyed (Quinn) on several occasions is an absolute delight, knowledgeable & very conversational, down to earth. Then there's the wine. It's not 'just good', but excellent - all of the varietals they produce. If you are not a Club member, a tasting visit is somewhat 'pricey',, but not at all disappointing. So, do yourself a real favor & join one of the tiers of Club membership.

Literally everything about our time at Baldacci Family Vinyards was Excellent. Quinn was absolutely fantastic. He was accommodating, knowledgeable, personable and just a great person to spend time with. A rare personality trait found in people these days is someone who will just "actively listen" when spoken to. Quinn was really good at listening to a question or comment and then providing an appropriate response. Seems small and minute, but that type of personal service is what separates the good experience from the Elite Experience. And Baldacci is indeed striving to be Elite. From the new tasting facility, to the expansive wine cave, to their commitment to making fabulous wine...this place is on a path to Greatness. And last but certainly not least, the wines we tasted during our 3 hour experience were absolutely stunning. Every wine just got better and better. Truly one of the best Cab portfolios top to bottom. And the "top" is Brenda's Vinyard...for me was a no words wine...it sat me back in my chair and demanded my attention so that I could savor every second. A special Cab for sure.
Long story longer, Baldacci is a must visit and my wife and I are thrilled to be a part of the Baldacci Family Vinyards.
Best,
CR

Even during a pandemic, we still had such a blast at this winery! I was recommended by The Inn On First, who said they offer fabulous red wines, and we they were right! So glad we came! The wines delivered a crisp, elevated flavor that we all really enjoyed. Nico was our host and we all loved him! He was informative, friendly and did a great job giving us the history of the vineyard and Baldacci family. We will definitely revisit once construction is complete and nags are back to (“new”) normal. So glad we stopped here!

The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. It was a lovely patio tasting of some excellent wines.
We tasted one white and three reds. I was hoping to try the Gewurtzraminer but that wasn’t possible when we went. But that was ok because I ordered some to be shipped home. Ordering wines to be shipped was easy and efficient. I would definitely go back here again!!

Beautiful grounds and Teddy was really informative and the wine was good. The only downside is our tasting was at 230 pm on a Sunday and we felt kind of rushed out the door. When we arrived we were one a few people still there. I had the feeling they didn’t want us to go on the patio because they wanted to start breaking it down; which is what they started to do from our view from inside. If you visit this vineyard, go earlier in the day.

Hi Shay, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review! We're so glad you enjoyed the wine and your time with Teddy. We're sorry to hear that you felt the experience was rushed. Because of the potential wind and heat on any given day, we host the majority of our tastings indoors for the comfort and safety of our guests; our outdoor terrace is typically reserved for club members, weather-permitting. We also bring down the umbrellas outside early when we experience strong afternoon winds. We hope that helps to clarify what you observed during your visit! If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us directly at taste@baldaccivineyards.com.

We weren’t able to taste due to the poor air quality but they offered us 50% off each bottle for cancelling our reservation and so that we could taste at our leisure. Haven’t opened yet but they were highly recommended by a friend so we are looking forward to opening our first bottle. Great impression of the winery and hospitality overall!!

I did a virtual tasting recently with Kelly Duckhorn at Baldacci. Very interesting and fun! Pairing their delicious Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon with salty, sour, sweet, umami and fat flavors to experience how the right food enhances the characteristics of wine. Baldacci is finishing up major construction of wine tasting room and caves, will be a wonderful place to visit and wine taste.

We were greeted warmly with sparkling wine and then had a tour of the caves. Our tasting was in a comfortable room with a lovely view of the valley and Andres was a wonderful guide through the wines. Memorable 25th anniversary experience for us and we look forward to returning soon
