I just got back from a long weekend in Napa. My wife and I visited over 10 wineries and the star of the show was Vine Cliff Winery on the Silverado Trail. The winery is a real gem as it is not packed with hordes of tourists. They have a stunning setting on the hills overlooking Napa Valley. They have beautiful gardens you can stroll through. Most impressive is their wine caves carved into the mountain. The tasting room is rustic and the staff is quite friendly and informed. Probably the best value for money wines that we found in Napa. We will certainly go back with friends.

Make a reservation. The tour here is a nice experience they make you feel like royalty from the time you arrive at the gate until you leave. The grounds are beautiful and relaxing and this is paired with the best wine in Napa. Their Cabs are the best but they have a wide selection of wines. It is nice to sit and relax with a glass of wine by the pond.

We just had to add our praise to the wonderful tasting team at Vine Cliff. Oscar Riviero spent time telling us the history of this 150 year old winery. We tasted both library specials and current releases of their Chardonnay which reminded us of a beautiful burgundy. We were delighted to taste their premier Cabernet, the Private Stock. Overall, a very personable experience and one we would recommend.

Fell in love with this place in 2002 and have been going back every time I am in Napa. I take friends and family whenever I can get them to come from the east coast. Friendly staff, great wine club ( a requirement because the small production volumes make the wines hard to find on the east coast), small private events and now an annual Harvest Party! If you are stopping to see the Disney's Silverado, Stags Leap, and Pine Ridge, you are close to Vine Cliff. The Proprietress Reserve Chard is only bottled in the best years, get a taste if you can. I am a red wine guy, but this is the chardonnay that made me put some white in storage. When I take Vine Cliff wines out for special occasions, everybody wants seconds and thirds (so get more than one bottle or don't share!). ...and then there are the caves...get a tour if you can and hear how they came to be decorated.

We loved this winery! The grounds are beautiful. Peter was fantastic in describing how the wine was made and stored. The tasting was even better because their wine is excellent. Reservations are needed. We used Uber and had no problems with drop off or pick up.

We are so pleased that you made Vine Cliff winery one of your wineries to visit. Due to limited capacity at the estate, reservations are recommended. Thank you for your visit.

Go here but make sure you try the Cab Franc blends. They are fantastic! The guys working were incredibly smart and wine savvy, the place was beautiful and the wine was exquisite. Great job guys!

If you want to get away from the touristy wineries and have a more personal wine tasting then make sure to visit Vine Cliff. We had a fantastic tour from Alex and learnt more than I have on my last few tours. The wines are fantastic and a good stop if you like Chardonnay as well as a very unique Zin. They are appointment only so do book ahead but you never know you might be able to sweet talk them into letting you in, if they aren't buy and you don't have an appointment.

We made a reservation for a personal wine tour, and we were treated wonderfully. The wines are great. We particularly enjoyed their Chardonnay and purchased a few bottles. David, our tour guide was very personable and knowledgeable. We had a teenager with us that couldn't drink wine, and David engaged him in the conversation too. We also had a picnic on the property which we planned ahead for and brought our own food. There are two lovely spots for a picnic. David offered each of us a glass of wine with our picnic meal. This is a wine estate we will definitely revisit.

If you have the opportunity to visit, do so. Lovely location and views, Rob Sweeney is terrific and wines more than good. Will need planning in advance.

Our winery is limited in the appointments we can accommodate so do contact us in advance to check availability. Our Tasting Room at 699 St. Helena Highway is open daily from 11 to 5 and needs no appointment. Same great wines for tasting.
