“Wonderful experience!”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

We had a great time at this winery. The wines were great, we bought our lunch and had a picnic with beautiful scenery, then did some barrel tasting. Staff were fun and knowledgeable. A must stop if you like to visit wineries!

“Laid-back wine tasting experience”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

This winery is a little off the beaten track, but was recommended by our guidebook, so we gave it a shot. The staff was very helpful, and happy to let us barrel-taste any wines that they didn't have bottled yet. The winery makes almost entirely red wine, so be forewarned if you're looking for lighter whites - you won't find them here.

“Amazing boutique winery, great wines & staff”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

We visited the Vincent Arroyo winery on Friday Jun 14, 2013 and the place completely exceeded our expectations. Our host, Rick, was very friendly and knowledgable. He let us take our time sampling the wines they had in the tasting room and then took us to the barrel storage room to sample wines straight out of the barrel. This was the first time we had done that type of tasting and we really enjoyed sampling the Petite Sirah's and Zins. Everything was so good that we ordered some of the futures, to arrive later this fall.

As we went back to the tasting room to place our order, we stopped to sample their gourmet dipping oils. OMG - those were super yummy. They have a cabernet flavored dipping oil that is to die for and their standard vinaigrette was also incredible. We visited 7 wineries while we were in Napa and this was our favorite - from the wines, to the staff to the entire experience. Hands down an amazing hidden gem that you must visit.

“Not special -dark little tasting room”
Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

The tasting room looked like a warehouse and was filled with customers and salespeople.

Although there were nice benches and seating areas outside we stayed inside, perhaps due to the heat.

The set up was not special, not pretty and not an "experience".

The first few wines were awful, perhaps leading up to the better ones, but I hate that sales model.

All in all with so many wineries to chose from, there are nicer places to enjoy. This was a sales floor pure and simple.
