“Great wine tasting - no reservation necessary!”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

For not needing a reservation, I give this place 5 stars. Our family stupidly didn't make a reservation before going to Napa Valley, so we were scrambling the night before our trip looking for a good place. We came across The Black Stallion, which had an offer of buy 1 tasting, get 1 free if we checked in Facebook or Twitter. We ended up having a marvelous time! The wine pourer was sarcastically funny and had a lot of knowledge about the wine. Three members of our group did the Red Tasting, while one did the White Tasting, and we all enjoyed the 4 wines that we sampled. For $30 for our group, how can you complain? The grounds were also gorgeous. We had a great time!

“Excellent winery”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

Great winery with a more european approach: cosy with a more relax attitude in a location which is breath-taking. The wines are very good to excellent and the staff can tell you everything you need to know about the wines or how they are made.

“Very unique winery”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Interestingly enough, this vineyard doesn't make its own wine for external sales or distribution. It only procures it from other vineyards, but they have a beautiful show facility for tasing. Yes, they bottle a very small amount of wine they sell only through the vineyard tastings and their wine club. This winery does make other known brands such as Delicato and Gnarly Head. We tasted some of their wines and the Rose was best. The facility though is outstanding. Beautiful and educational. If you step outside you'll see rows and rows of every significant varietal and it's history and interesting facts. Even through this isn't a winery you'd know, it was very nice stop.

“A Winning Syrah”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

This year's Syrah (2010) is the best yet. Loaded with fruit flavor and a smooth it is well worth the trip. Their Cabernet and Pinot Grigio are also excellent.
