The best part of this winery is that they allow you to picnic on their property. The wine was average, but the sauvignon blanc and the Zinfandel were pretty good. The hostess was a bit surly (in a kind way) but not offensive. Once you...More

Approachable, friendly, practical and enjoyable. Our driver said "this is my Napa" and he was absolutely right.

Each trip we look to find the smaller producer that excels. This trip it was Saddleback. Nice low volume selections available only at the vineyard. Price points in the middle and a laid back atmosphere creates a fun stop. We suggest the Zine.
