“Lovely place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

We read the earlier reviews and decided to visit the winery. We were positively surprised. It's a small place with a nice garden with herbs and vegetables. The wines are very good out favourites were the Syrah, Chardonnay and the Cabernet. It's a lovely place with great service!

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014

Never would have expected our favorite stop of our Napa trip to be this tiny little greenhouse in a relatively industrial area in downtown Napa. Like others, when our Platypus tour bus pulled up here as our first stop, we were a little skeptical, but our tour guide promised us that we were about to experience something special and he was right. We were served by Laina Brown, one of the owners, and she was incredibly hospitable, knowledgeable, and passionate about their project, which will eventually grow to include a full restaurant and a brewery - how cool is that? They have a particular interest in making wines that pair well with food, and they excel in both categories. The wines were delicious - the rose of syrah was a particular favorite - and the food pairings were amazing. They have a pretty patio area area full of raised beds where they grow some of the food that they serve. We visited 8 more wineries over the course of our trip, but this one was hard to beat. We liked it so much we not only joined the wine club, but went back again the very next day as our last stop! They are open late, unlike most wineries, so lingering on their patio with a glass of wine and their fabulous strawberries and burrata plate was a perfect way to wind down at the end of the day. Can't wait to go back!

“Really really good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

Everything we had from the menu was just gorgeous. The wines also lovely. We were served by one of the owners, and we asked her to surprise us with the best wines to go with the food we ordered. She did a fantastic job, and we ended up buying a box of wine!! I will definitely buy their wines again, and if you like sweet / desert wines, their Muscat is one of the best I have ever had, and I have had a few .

“A-MAZ-ING!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014

This place really hits the mark. Local foods... literally, pulls lettuce and herbs from you 10 feet away... doesn't get much better than that! Delish flavors - wine is a bonus. Wish we could have been there for the beer! Good luck!

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

Loved this little hidden get away. I had a cheese plater a 1/2 glass of wine (yes, you can order it that way.) Almost like a green house setting in a commercial surrounding but you would never know. The property has raised garden boxes all around where you can pick your own organic greens if you want to. The food is perfect. The wine outsanding. One of the owners served us and she is the most gracious and customer service oriented person ever. Please stop by you will be so impressed.
