We reserved a tasting at Cakebread Cellars, which is required since it is by appointment only. We ended up 15mins or so early and was required to wait until our scheduled time. We did not have a tour of the property, strictly the wine. The tasting took place at a stand up bar counter, as most do in the area.... More

We booked this tour pretty far in advance. We booked the select tasting. The host we had just didn't quite exude 'Cakebread'. He said 'you guys' every 5 seconds - it was hard to pay attention to anything else he was saying. Not sure how you get around this but I wouldn't return to Cakebread in the future.

This was the only winery on our trip that we made a reservation in advance for - and it is worth it. High quality wines, lovely setting and knowledgable staff made it a great experience. I highly recommend this as your "splurge" tasting. We did the reserve tasting, and normally a tour isn't included, but since no one in our... More

We had a wonderful prereserved wine tour and tasting at Cakebread Winery. Our guide had been with the winery for years and was so knowledgeable about the wine and winery. The reserved tasting with appetizers couldn't have been nice or more delicious. I highly recommend to Cakebread upon your visit to Napa.

We just tasted the current releases and that was very enjoyable. Book in advance for sure. I made the appointment just for the current releases at least two weeks in advance. Beautiful winery and very nice setting.

My boyfriend and I visited this winery Labor Day weekend, he had been here before, I had not. It was our first stop and I loved it! Such a classic place without having the "zoo" feel to it. Our tasting group was my bf and I, a group of 5 girls and one other couple; 9 people total. There were... More

This was an outstanding winery, from the moment we arrived. Our wine tasting experience was led by a young woman named Lyndsey who was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable and made the tour and tasting a terrific experience from start to finish. Most importantly, the wines we tasted were exceptionally good, and we left with a number of bottles in tow.

We loved our wine tasting with Summer. From the second we got out of our car, Summer was there to greet us with a smile and to help us get our tasting set up. She was extremely fun and friendly and gave us a very informative tour of the property and taught us a lot about the wines we tasted.

When we arrived, we walked into what I would describe as a barn where a lady at a cashier checked us in. We waited in line where a nice man offered us a sip of chardonnay while we waited. So far, so good. Then, when we got to the register, the lady asked up very suspiciously where we got our... More
