A nice visit. Quite a bit different than prior visits over the years, as now need reservations for tastings, get into a nice small group, but it was a more commercial spiel than an individualized educational outing. Grounds are quite nice, tho not nearly as lush as in the past as they had to remove most of the foliage for fire prevention purposes (jungle-like photos online are no longer accurate). Wines are good as always.

We love Rombauer wine, and a visit to their vineyard should not be missed when in Napa valley. This was our second visit, and happy to say the experience was even nicer than our first visit (pre-pandemic).

On this visit, we were seated outside among their lovely gardens, and spectacular hillside grounds with views of the vineyards. Unfortunately, the recent fires did damage near the property, but thankfully the wine and vines have done fine.

Most people love the Chardonnay they produce, arguably the best in Napa, or perhaps in the USA. While I love it, I do think they make outstanding Zin's as well.

Kerry was our tasting expert on this visit. She is knowledgeable, friendly and just made the whole experience special for us as we were celebrating our anniversary weekend. Wine tastings in Napa have gotten expensive and sometimes a bit stuffy, and thankfully you will not find that to be the case here.

Be sure to visit, and I trust you will enjoy.

We have been to numerous wineries throughout the country and overseas. Rombauer wines are exceptional! This experience stood out mainly due to our host and somm Philip. All wines tasted were outstanding but my favorites are Chardonnay and Zinfandel. Arrive to your tasting on time. The estate is gorgeous. Thank you Rombauer.

We scheduled a tasting the day before and were mainly just going so our friend could try some additional Rombauer wines and purchase some to be sent back home. Our tasting was just that, we stood at a bar and tasted some wines, we had not scheduled a tour. Our friend loves their wine and was happy to have had the tasting and we all purchased some wine to ship back home. The grounds are lovely, with a view over the valley.
We actually visited in May of 2018.

Our Mecca!! In the past two days, we have been to six different wineries, and none of them compared to our experience at Rombauer. The wine was incredible, but our guide Karl put our experience over the top. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and really created such an incredible experience, even taking us down to their caves. He made us feel like family, and we look forward to visit again.

Great wine and excellent hosts! Highly recommend outdoor tastings under a covered umbrella overlooking the vineyards and gardens. Host was very knowledgeable and friendly.

When you come to Napa for wine tasting you need to weigh up three things. 1. Ambient 2. Affordability 3. Aromatics.

Perched on a hill-top its offers sweeping views of the area. It is picturesque, with multiple Kodak moments. The segregated outside sitting spots (reserve) are also stunning and offer privacy for your party. Inside at the tasting a little tight next to fellow oenophiles.

Folks, Napa ain't cheap. So when you consider any winery, Rombauers price might surprise you but rest assured its on the healthier side. the compromise is perhaps less on the dining front. then again why whine when you can have decent wine. Which brings me to the final criteria.

Many other wineries have retail managers, sales associates and the like. We were lucky enough to be treated by Phillip Smalley a certified wine conoisseur who prided himself in being an 'educator' first. He knew his stuff and made the experience outstanding.

Rombauer is your classic Napa experience.

My wife and I have been fans of Rombauer for years. Fun to go to the Vineyard.
Our host Kari was special. She recognized that we had upscale tastes of the regular Rombauer wines. So she brought out the higher end wines for us to taste. And of course we bought several bottles.
Cool to discover the late Mr. Rombauer was a pilot. Wish I had had the opportunity to meet the man.
Great place, great wines!

What a beautiful winery! The views were fantastic, the wines were all very good, and the stories behind them were great to listen to. It wasn't very crowded, as we went at opening - always a nice thing. I am not a Chardonnay person by any means, and I really enjoyed both of the Chards we were able to taste. Bought a few bottles to bring home! Thanks for everything!
