After visitinge some huge public wineries, someone recommended this place for we were unhappy with the "cattle call" wineries. It was a breath of fresh air. We were there on a Thursday afternoon and no crowds, the person doing our wine tasting was friendly, pleasant and didn't rush us at all. We ordered some items from the bruchetta food truck... More

It's Napa so great wine is expected we suppose. And Velo Vino does have great wines. The huge plus is that the Clif Bruschetta food truck is usually parked outside so you can combine great wine with great food. What really made this establishment stand out was the extremely accommodating and friendly staff. Samantha helped us select a case of... More

We stopped by The Clif Family Winery after being at a couple of other big wineries, and I'm so glad we did. My friends and I sat out on the patio and drank some wine. The staff was great, let us taste some of the other wines available and they were all so fantastic (and reasonably priced) that we all... More

This is by far my favorite winery. I love the atmosphere, the people who work there, the story of the winery, and of course the wine. The wine is so delicious. I wish I lived closer so I could go there all the time! If you are looking for a personal experience that is relaxed and low key, look no... More

Really just a tasting room but worth the stop. The wine was good and it was a very casual style tasting. The staff was family of the winery, so it was very informative.

My husband loves to cycle (and eat Clif Bars) so I added this winery to our Napa itinerary. The tasting room has a wide variety of cycling memorabilia. My husband was thrilled when the server gave him a signed poster of a famous cyclist (Andy Hampstan) who recently visited the winery. We tried two wines and ended up buying a... More

Clif Family Winery was recommend to us by a Napa local so we definitely wanted to check it out! It's a really nice place to stop and do a tasting if you are in the area. We tried a lot of different types of wine and our favorite was the Climber. While you are tasting they also give you snacks... More

My husband is a cyclist, and we've been visiting this winery for years. The antique bikes and posters are interesting. We went on a quiet Sunday (Super Bowl). We shared the $20 flight and the $40 flight. When we went to make a purchase, we were surprised by the policy. The tasting fee is comped if you purchase 2 bottles... More
