Cakebread is what a wine tour should be! We booked in advance (required) and arrived to a lovely winery set off the main road. We were immediately greeted and given a tasting of white wine to walk around outside and wait for our personal guide. Todd arrived almost immediately and we began our private tour (it was just my husband, myself, and Todd). He walked us around the property and at each stop, gave us another tasting. We were able to ask questions and he was so knowledgeable about the winery, owners, history, wine making, etc... At the end of our tour, he left us to mull over if we wanted to purchase anything. There was no pressure to buy and he didn't hover making us feel like we had to buy anything. We did end up purchasing a few bottles (the reds are AMAZING!). He boxed up our wines and presented us with Cakebread glasses to take home. Of the 15 wineries my husband and I went to this trip, this was the only one (other than Grgich) that let us keep our glass. Our experience here was phenomenal. Best winery of our trip! Thanks Todd!

Beautiful gardens and delightful wine. The tour felt a bit canned, but it was still overall a great experience.

We did a tasting here. OUr favorite thing about it was that each tasting happened at a different part of the vineyard. So, it was almost like a tour as well. It may have been a little rushed due to the traveling, but a nice change from sitting in one spot.

We loved the personalized wine tasting around the grounds. So different from traditional wine tastings we experienced in Napa. Instead of standing next to a counter the entire time, you are moved to different locations throughout the grounds for each tasting. The host, Brian, was well informed and personal.

We didn't have a reservation, but because it was mid-week we lucked out and we able to join a tasting, but because this place is so great, I wouldn't press your luck, make a reservation in advance!
