Overview

With passion and a commitment to hard work Linda and Gerhard Reisacher launched Delectus Winery in 1995. Delectus is a small family-owned winery that handcrafts luxury red wines from select vineyards throughout Napa Valley and Knights Valley. We produce 4500 cases annually of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petite Sirah and Syrah, most of which is sold directly through the winery. Delectus wines have received high scores and praise from wine critics and consumers alike. Delectus not only delivers exceptional wines but unique experiences as well. A visit to our tasting room in St. Helena is a welcoming and educational environment.

Delectus has a small tasting room, which meant nice, personal service. They have a mix of red wines (one white), and provided both regular and high end wines during the tasting. We were able to compare and contrast 3 different cabernets from the same vintage...More

I had heard such great things about this winery, but the wines were mediocre at best and the tasting room is so tiny. I had hoped that this quaint place would have a little more charm, but it almost felt like a pop-up in an...More

After reading such glowing reviews of Delectus Winery and their wines, I stopped by to do a tasting. I was greatly disappointed -- not so much by the experience, but by the wines. I wasn't a fan of anything I tried and I don't get...More

We are familiar with Delectus wines and enjoy their Cabernet Sauvignon. So decided to stop at their tasting room. This is a small winery, known for their reds. Like most tasting rooms, cost of the flight is waived if you buy wine. Worth visiting to...More

Incredible red wines. Bold, powerful, elegant and structured. 2009s drinking young but great potential. Wine knowledgeable staff. Great experience. You should go! Cab franc and Sauvignon and Petite Sirah. Yum.

It is easy to drive by this little winery without noticing it. It is not a place to go for the tasting room experience, although the staff is wonderful, and they do have plans to expand. This was my second visit, and my impression is...More
