Great wines and friendly service. The Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay were well made but had lots of Sulphur. 2015 Merlot had nice structure and good upfront fruit. 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon was excellent. Free tasting for military.

We are wine club members for a reason - exceptional whites and reds. Ask for Toni in the Tasting Room. She gave us a personalized guided tasting tour! Her knowledge of the winery & Mike Grgich’s history enhanced the tasting experience.

Great tasting room Toni did a wonderful job. I am a big fan for many years of Mike Grgich and his exceptional wines. I always stop here when in Napa. No appointment needed stop in and bring a picnic lunch to have in the garden.

We stayed there a little over an hour. Tasting the wines and learning of Mike Grgich history in Bottle Shock ( beating all French wines in blind taste test 20+ years ago !) Hope you enjoy!

Sorry but we are not allowed to sell food as part of our permit. We do offer wine and cheese pairings as part of an educational seminar. Call us at the winery @707-963-2784 for more details.
