Our first Napa winery and so glad we started here. Small, family-owned winery who took the time to explain each wine, the process to make each variety, and the farms they source their grapes from. We felt more knowledgeable about wine in general when we left. Beautiful setting and great people.

Six of us came here a couple of weeks ago for a 10:30 AM tasting and had a blast. I must give credit to Taylor for making our time so much fun! She was lighthearted, easy going, gave us the wine info with humor inflected in there, and rolled with our jokes and laughter. She is truly fantastic! There was an issue with the credit card machine which caused us to have to dash off to another appointment and we didn't get to properly give our appreciation, but I hope you see this Taylor!

The wine itself was also enjoyable. We purchased the pinot noir rose (breakfast wine) and the Sundawg (couch wine) and loved them both the next time around. The setting is lovely and relaxing.

Can’t say enough about the bucolic setting and relaxed vibe of this super informative and engaging wine tasting. Tyler was genuinely energetic guide who helped us feel at ease and gave us a great perspective on their delicious Pinot noir and the iconic Carneros AVA. Highly recommend!

Saintsbury was our first winery on our first trip to Napa and our only regret is not purchasing any wine while we were there (didn't want to get carried away since we had several more stops!).

Tyler set the bar really high for hosts and, after visiting six wineries, he was definitely the best that we had. He gave great service, wonderful explanations about the wine and how to pair them, the history of their vineyard, etc. We really appreciated his expertise and layperson descriptions!

A great, laid back atmosphere that I would recommend to anyone visiting the area.

Visited Saintsbury this past weekend and had an amazing time. The owner and his family are so sweet and you can truly tell it is family owned as soon as you are welcomed in. The patio is situated between the vineyard and the giant wine barrels which really gives the place the ideal Napa vibe! Their Pinots are amazing and we took home a couple of their Rosés as well. Highly recommend - it’s a must stop if you are wine tasting in Napa!! Thank you for the best visit :)

Had great expectations but was very disappointed. Our server appeared not to have time for us, even with reservations. Our wine was served from the refrigerator, not cellar temperature. The small outside area was pretty, and views of the vineyards are always appreciated. Cost compared to other tastings was not worth it.

One of the best wineries in Napa. A cute boutique winery where you will receive great wine and even better hospitality. The price point is great for how outstanding the wine is. Taylor and Jacob are both great hostesses. Will visit time and time again!!

We are big Pinot Noir drinkers and really wanted to see what Napa had to offer. This place didn't disappoint. Great knowledge from the staff. Awesome relaxed tasting environment. Great wines. That is all you need to know!

My partner and I visited Sainsbury Winery earlier this week. Many wineries charge $20 or $30 for a tasting per person. However, this one is definitely worth the price of the tasting. We were treated so wonderfully, and were given very personal attention. The gardens were lovely. Saintsbury really makes you feel like you are special. We even got to play with the winery dogs, Jet and Sadie! It was a great morning!

I love Saintsbury!!

This is far and away my favorite winery in Napa, and even the world for that matter.

It is a small and charming operation that specializes in Pinot and Chardonnay, and they do it extremely well. I love how they source their grapes from a number of different ranches around Napa and Sonoma, which gives them a great variety and freedom to explore the full spectrum of the varietals.

Honestly, the wine sells itself, but visiting the winery for a tasting is a really wonderful experience. Galen and Peter are super friendly and incredible at their job. Peter for instance goes around to all of the different ranch sites in his free time to better understand how the different microclimates and terrain affect the various grapes that they source. And both are super personable and just fun to talk to.

I cannot imagine a more perfect time than sitting in the beautiful garden on a sunny day and drinking their incredible wine (with bread sticks!). And if it's not a sunny day, then do the tasting in the barn house barrel room!

Lastly, be sure to check out the ridiculous portrait of founders Dick and David just about the big barn door on the inside - you won't be disappointed.
