Palmaz was fabulous. From the moment we arrived it was a wonderful experience. the story of the Palmaz family makes you want to enjoy their wine even more. AND, the wine is the best. It was our first trip to Palmaz but not our last.

We visited Palmaz with a group for a private tour and reserve tasting that was arranged by my friend. I must admit I was not familiar with this Vineyard but it is absolutely beautiful up on a high hill. They built the winery deep down into the mountain and have an amazing use of technology integrated with the winemaking process.... More

We cannot say enough about our visit to Palmaz on our last trip to Napa. It appears that Palmaz is the only true 100% gravity-flow winery in Napa, and it is also one of the oldest. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable of both the property's history and the wine making process. The wines are excellent and a phenomenal value... More

Overpriced tour. Nice facility, well laid out, high tech but wines are over priced. Drinkable but nothing special. Would not go back. Lots of better wines for one third the prices, like Kennifeck Ranch.

This is off the beaten path and really close to downtown Napa. The history of the property and what it has become today is so interesting. One of the coolest wineries I have ever seen! Lucas was our host and he did a great job! Really friendly and so knowledgeable! The Palmaz family really has made something special in this... More

This is not an inexpensive experience at $65 per person but it is well worth it! An 18 story winery built into a mountain with spectacular views. Our tour guide Adrian was terrific. High tech merges with basic wine making at this winery. The food and wine pairing were as good as I have ever had. If you have friends... More

Not only is this property AMAZING, the wine is fantastic. This property is so unique for the fact that they dug into the mountain and created the size of a Costco. There are 5 levels, and an entrance on every level. The family is so involved in every part of the vineyard. The technology is amazing. Unlike anything you have... More

The tour takes about 2 tours, which is great, you never feel rushed. You get to see what goes into their wine, see the cellars, see the high tech room where you can see what is going on with each wine. At the end, there is a wonderful pair of wine and food. A very beautiful winery, with wonderful wine... More

Not your run of the mill vineyard. Make a reservation if you're into fine wine. Technology marvel of a vineyard for sure. Dr. Palmaz and family still live on premises. Ask for Adrian as a tour guide. Very friendly and knowledgeable. Awesome place.
