Attraction details
Owner description: This place is temporarily closed. Signorello Estate specializes in estate grown wines and exquisite food and wine pairings. The estate, located on the Silverado Trail just north of the town of Napa, sits atop its own hill and offers guests one of the most breathtaking views in the valley. The extensive food and wine program has been rated 3 1/2 stars by the San Francisco Chronicle, and is considered one of the ten best tasting room experiences in California.

Though I can confidently recommend a "general" visit to Signorello (e.g., classic tasting room visit), my primary recommendation is to do the Enoteca Experience, a 90-minute small group tasting that integrates a sampling of both small lot and general distribution wines with corresponding food pairings prepared fresh in their own kitchen by a master chef.

Though there is an educational component (the experience is guided by a Signorello official who shares some of the winery's history, wine making philosophy, and background on each wine) this isn’t a formal class on wine/food pairings. The overall tone is fun, informal and familial (by the end of my journey, I knew where all of my fellow participants grew up, how many pets they had, and what they loved about wine; I’d heard about the French style of wine making from the winemaker himself, who wandered into the room by happenstance and stopped to chat with our group; and I learned the stories behind some of the formidable culinary creations when the chef himself popped in and out to talk with us at random).

I would definitely do this again. For $65 (a very good value, considering that many mediocre wineries charge $20 for wine-only tastings of their mass-market wines. Signorello is a winery that produces a small number of relatively low-volume, artisan wines) it is quite reasonable, not merely for the food and wine but also for the intangible value of having a great time relaxing and chatting with others in a nice environment.
