First off, ignore the one star review. He's a moron. Mr. Hendry is very kind and his wine tour/tasting was the most education I've ever done! I learned so much from his tasting and it was worth every penny (even if they didn't reimburse the $75 with a wine purchase). I visited here with three friends and we all felt... More

Great first stop in Napa. Out of six wineries, this one was by far the most educational. You have a nice intimate seating and a really comprehensive breakdown of how to taste a wine. It helped us make the most of every winery we visited thereafter. Also, the award-winning wines were just superb. This should definitely be on your list.

I did the afternoon tour and tasting, which was about 2 hours starting around 2pm. You can definitely tell they put a strong focus on the science that goes into wine making, between the stories of the owner and the explanation through the tour and tasting. It was very informative and quite interesting to hear their philosophy and practices, unlike... More

This was by far the most educational tour we took in Napa. We were able to tour the grounds and the vineyards. Then we were ushered back into the tasting room and were given and education on oak vs no oak, tannins, why wine tastes different with different foods. It was phenomenal. Highly recommended.

Not sure about the recent review that only gave this a 1* rating, because they thought Hendry had a "bad attitude". Maybe he should read the hundreds of other reviews that suggest George Hendry is anything but! One of your "crew" was an "international sommelier"...and what...you weren't given special attention for your own commercial advantage? Sounds like you were the... More

We were fortunate enough to get to do the Owner's Tour with George Hendry, and we are glad we did. It was a three hour experience that began with some history (and a view!), a vineyard walk, the tour of the winery, and finally, a very informative tasting. Given that his "day job" has to do with science, George enjoyed... More

When I began planning my trip to Napa a few months ago, I did some searching on TripAdvisor and came across the Hendry Ranch. I read some reviews, and made the decision to book. After a three hour wine maker tour, I can 100% understand why the reviews were so great. The tour group was five people, and was led... More

Worst attitude and attention by the people in charge. He didn't offer us an alternative of anything. One of my crew was trying to write an article about Napa Winery, he's an international sommelier. Bad attitude.

The fact that George Hendry and his partner produce cyclotrons and are engineers/scientists really explains a lot about the tours held at Hendry. If you like Good Eats and hearing Alton Brown explain the science behind the food we cook and eat, you'll enjoy a tour at Hendry. Jan was our guide, along with Gracie the dog (yay dogs), and...

We stumbled on Hendry Ranch Winery a number of years ago before many people had discovered it. We were in love immediately. George Hendry gave an amazing tour of his property and explained in such detail about the growing process and the way the wine is made, we felt like we received an amazing education. The wine tasting was so... More
