We have been adamant followers of this winery for many years-however, today's experience was nothing short of disappointing. My husband and I are celebrating our nine year anniversary back in the Napa Valley region where we spent two weeks for our honeymoon nine years ago....More

We tasted several wines that were good, but nothing that fit our tastes quite right. The whites are sophisticated and complex. The reds were more mineral and tannic than we prefer, although we have friends who would likely love these wines. There are no off...More

Lois and Claire gave us great customer service as we did tasting and blend seminars. The Mount Veeder tasting and the Magnificat blending seminar was among the best in the Napa Valley. We joined the club as well!

We love reds and theirs didn't disappoint! We had the reserve and high altitude tasting and shared both...I preferred the high altitude but they were both delicious. They both had five tastes, standing at the bar. Glad we stopped by!

The grounds are lovely. Some of the wines are great. They " are" the "Prisoner" and "Magnificat". However the $40 tasting is non-remarkable.
