We enjoyed this winery for a tasting, and friendly staff. We sampled Red's and whites. Here they also talked about pairings with foods and handed out recipes. At one end, see the metal storage containers. Rows and rows of vineyards make for a nice setting. Seemed an outdoor garden would have been an even better way to enjoy the tastings,... More

Had a nice experience here. It's a modern yet rustic building with great wine. We had a lovely tour guide and she was probably the most descriptive of "the tasting experience" of all we visited.

Absolutely fantastic, a must visit and degustation whilst in the Napa Valley. The 'Dancing Bear' single vineyard Cab Sav is highly recommended - don't leave town without it ! Tastings by appointment only. A great vineyard, great family & great traditions...

We had the privilege to get a private tour at Cakebread Cellars. We were taken care of from the moment we walked into the winery by Summer. She greeted us with open arms and for the next hour we were educated on the history of the winery from the very beginning. Jack and Dolores founded Cakebread Cellars in 1973 and... More

We had a wonderful and informative walking tour of the winery. The staff was very friendly and knowledgable. The winery itself was also lovely. Overall it was a wonderful experience.

I like the wines here. They need to be laid down for a while to truly be enjoyed. Our first experience here was amazing. I joined and waiting for my first shipment. This trip was sub-par. We were seated in the members area and handed off to several servers, none of which were interested in talking or engaging with our... More

I enjoy Cakebread wines, but I had a dreadful tour. Our host was unenthusiastic during our red wine tasting at $45/each and unfortunately it just made the experience not fun. We left after <30 minutes at the winery. It's too bad as the winery visits should enhance your attachment to the label - instead it was a bad memory. I... More

This is the most fun I had at all of the vineyards we toured. Cakebread did a cooking and tasting for our group. I attached a picture of the menu. There were 12 of us in this group - we were lead into the kitchen where we met the chef that would be assisting us with the menu. You would... More

Wine tasting is extremely subjective when it comes to what everyone likes, so I won't talk about my feelings on the wine. However, I thought that this was the least engaging experience on our last trip, and the tasting was definitely more sales pitch than anywhere else I've been. On the plus side, our concierge that Calistoga Ranch set this... More
