Reviewed June 14, 2014

The wines were all pretty enjoyable. The price of tastings has escalated to a ridiculous point In this region in my opinion. But generally as long as you purchase they waive the fee. Not here. Unless you joined the wine club or spent $75 I think or both.
That being said our pourer was really nice and everyone there was really friendly. In addition to the tasting room you can enjoy the patio for tastings. You are surrounded by horse stalls and a practice ring. This is NOT where they grow their grapes but where they train and board horses. We enjoyed wandering the property and visiting the horses

“The best winery around!”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

My friends and I decided to take a quick 2 day jaunt to Calistoga for my birthday! Our plan was rent bikes and bike to a few chosen wineries. When we were picking up the bikes the owner told us Tamber Bey was worth a visit. From the minute we called for the reservation this was an unbelievable experience. We called 20 min ahead of time and Ken was able to get us right in. The property was amazing. There are horses lining both sides of the driveway and you feel as though you are entering some movie set. The winery is in a converted horse stable and has outdoor seating where you are able to do the tasting! Ken was not only knowledgable on the wine but also told us the history of the property. The best part is ALL their wine (whites and reds)was not just good but spectacular! This was one of my best winery experiences to date. A must stop if you are going to Calistoga.

“Make the appointment for wine tasting”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Full disclosure, we are members of the wine club and have loved Tamber Bey wines for years, but this was our first time at the ranch in Calistoga. What a fabulous place! Tasting is by appointment, and it definitely worth making the phone call. The tasting room is at a working horse ranch. It is very picturesque walking with a glass of wine in your hand and petting the nose of a horse. These are high end wines so expect to stay and enjoy the experience. If you are lucky they will be working the horses in the arena so you can just sit back and watch.

“Fantastic Experience”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

We were expecting a really cool experience and it was even better than we imagined. First, the setting was so unique and relaxing. We were drinking wine on a gorgeous day in really comfortable chairs surrounded by horses on the beautiful grounds of the equestrian ranch. Everything is so personal - the staff was terrific from the moment we walked in until it was time to go. They set us up in the center of the courtyard on really comfortable furniture. It was like drinking wine in the backyard with your friends. If there was a hammock I would have taken a nap. Just really relaxing. The owner/founder of the winery, Barry, spent much of the time with us, sharing great stories and taking us through the tasting. He was such a cool guy and his wines are terrific. If you are looking for good wine and a real personalized experience you will definitely want to set up a visit to Tamber Bey.

“AMAZING!! Words Can't Describe”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

If you LOVE horses and LOVE wine then this is a MUST SEE!! This vineyard is on an equestrian farm. The wine is more than excellent (especially the Merlot) , and I am thinking about joining their wine club! The staff was amazing and the grounds were beautiful. It is right next door to the historical geyser as well. If your in Calistoga and don't stop you are missing out. I HIGHLY recommend stopping here!
