I took my family of seven on a wine tour and tasting at Cakebread. Their wine shop was the best and most attractive of all the wineries we visited. The tour guides were knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Their wine club area is relaxing and beautiful. Both the Cab and Chardonnary are outstanding.

Cakebread Cellars was definitely the best on site tasting experience I had during my trip to Napa. Cakebread doesn't really sell cheap wines, but their tasting was the cheapest of the ones I did. 15 dollars included six samples of their current release wines and about 30-40 minutes of explanation with a very knowledgable guide. They also offer red only,... More

We did the red tasting and spent over an hour enjoying and learning. We will definitely go back. For us, it was the highlight of our Napa visit.

We have always enjoyed a good bottle of Cakebread, so on our most recent visit to Napa area and last minute on the trip we dropped in with no appt., but they were very accommodating and our short tour and good tasting were what we needed. If you have been to Napa before ( many times) this is one you... More

We tried this winery on the recommendation of others, but we found it wasn't worth it. My husband wished we did a shared tasting- which was offered if asked- as the wine flights were poured one after another with very little time to breathe in between. It was as if they want to get you buzzed and then you go... More

Visited with my brother as he's been a longtime fan of Cakebread wines. Tastings and tours are by reservation only, so plan accordingly. We arrived 5 minutes early as requested. Upon entering their waiting area, we immediately knew we liked their wine more than their staff. Staff were not rude, however, they were very unwelcoming. We found ourselves wishing we... More

We visited on a hot day on our way to Calistoga. $15 pp fee was reasonable. We would have preferred a more interactive tour with intermittent tastings but our flight of 3 whites and 3 reds was acceptable. The experience seemed rushed.

Visited Cakebread on a really hot day so maybe that is why the tasting was done inside next to the huge vats-felt like we were in a warehouse. The wine expert giving the tasting, though incredibly knowledgable, was incredibly boring. The saving grace was that the tasting was only $15 and the wine was very good.
