“Wine Tasting at It's Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

The Domain Caneros approach to wine tasting is such a good venue. You can have a cheese plate or any kind of plate. We were most interested in the sparkling wines. The servers are all wine specialists. They can explain all about the wines you wish to try. They can also offer food - wine pairing suggestions.

This is a must visit, if you are going to the Napa or Sonoma Valleys.

“Beautiful stop during your Napa visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2014

Domaine Carneros is a lovely place to visit for a couple hours as you tour through Napa. Due to some slapdash planning on our part, we arrived about half an hour before closing time (6pm on a Friday) with a large party of 10 people. The staff was nevertheless friendly and welcoming. We were seated outside for the tasting festivities and the views all around are absolutely gorgeous. Even with our late arrival, we were never rushed by the extremely patient staff. Our hostess introduced us to the Demi-Sec house speciality, which was the favorite of our group. Definitely give this one a try!

“Disneyland of Napa”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2014

There are many great wineries to see, but if you are looking for personal service or a relaxing time -- do not add this to your itinerary. We actually made a reservation, but when we arrived on time, it was a zoo. We were provided a table on the terrace and a menu, but no one ever came by to take our order. It was disorganized and tourist-y. We waited 15 minutes then left without ever even tasting any bubbles. Lots of babies and strollers and craziness. The views are not worth the chaos.

“The best way to see Napa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014

This place is simply gorgeous. We arrived at exactly 10am and ordered a flight of sparkling wines, a cheese platter and salmon. Everything was absolutely delicious and this place is a perfect setting.

“Fantastic Visit - A Must Go”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

Spectacular spot - beautiful grounds, good service, and delish bubbly! If you love champagne, a must go! Had a taster w 4 very different champagnes and a glass of the LeReve (hello expensive but so worth it)! Can't wait to return!
