This most recent visit was my third time doing the wine experience at Quintessa and I would do it again and again. There are a couple of experiences that you can do. I suggest doing the private tasting in the terrace above the vineyard. They put you in your own little hut at the top of the mountain and take... More

What a wonderful session (10 folks in total) to hear from the author of the Wine Bible. We went through the four classic grapes (Cab Sauv, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauv Blanc). Her delivery and characterization of the varietals provided an excellent perspective of what to expect. Of course it was finished off with a tasting of the 2006 Quintessa... More

We were set up on a private tour by the concierge at The Calistoga Ranch. This was in December so it was quiet. It was very beautiful despite no foliage due to off season. We had an extensive private tour of the grounds and facility. Tasting at the end..The guide was a great guy, very professional and informative. He told... More

We had an amazing experience at Quintessa. The staff were welcoming upon our arrival and we even started our tour (make a reservation in advance) a bit easy. We enjoyed the property tour, history, and view of the wine caves and production facility. And, of course, the tasting was fantastic. It was a welcome change of pace to enjoy a... More

This is an architectural delight. Our host delightful. Took wine up on a high bluff at sundown with a delightful breeze. Then down to tasting room. Generous, generous pours and a lovely tasting room. We loved these wines. Go!

Our host was very informative and great. We really loved the view of the property. It is obvious that the winery is very proud of their property and they should be. However, for the steep tasting fee price we only got three pours and the wine was very good but not great. I thought the bottle prices were a little... More

One of the top tier winery in Napa. Very educational tour with delicious wines to taste. Very secluded and off the major highway. Appointment needed for tasting. Highly recommended!!

We were excited for this visit since Quintessa is my all time favorite wine. Our host, Darren, was very knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. We tasted the Illumination (Sauvignon Blanc), as well as the 2010, 2011 and 2013 Quintessa. We became Dragon members and can't wait to receive our wine selections! Highly recommend as this winery will... More

We visited today for a large group tour. We were given the opportunity to see the behind the scenes operation which was very interesting. All of our questions were answered and our curiosities cured. The highlight of our tour was the wine tasting in the Pavillion at the top of the hill. It was an amazing experience that I would... More

My husband and I had such a fantastic time touring Quintessa and tasting the wines. They were my personal favorite wines we tasted on our entire trip! The views on the tour are breathtaking. Worth every penny to do the hour and a half experience of visiting this winery! Eddie was the best tour guide also!! We loved him!
