Our driver suggested we stop by Raymond and view the Crystal Cellars. I can honestly say this was one of the wineries we had the most fun in. My husband and I had a great time going from room to room after our tasting. There are red rooms with a poker table, pool table, the crystal cellars with the hanging mannequins, rooms with oak barrels and covered wall to wall in wine bottles. Outside there is a pretty set up of picture frames and chairs for a cute photo op. It was a pleasant surprise!

You will not find another winery that has as much going on inside as this one. You can't tell from the outside, but the inside has different rooms; one looks like a speakeasy in boardwalk empire; another looks like some kind of crazy s&M disco party room. What an experience,and the wine is delicious!!. Extra points for being dog lovers and having a shrine to their dog ouside. A really fun place to visit, and you'll learn alot too.

This place is trendy, cool, stylish, fancy, over the top and has INCREDIBLE wine! Each tasting menu has it's own room. We visited the Crystal Room, and were so impressed. This winery embracing good wine making, great fun and education.
The longer you are there, the more you learn. Whether it's the "earth room" with soil samples, the senses hallway, or the wine maker for a day attraction. This place was over the top, and suggested to us by locals. The wines are varied and they have a bubbly lounge as well. It's a treat and like nothing you've been to, or are likely to see again.

The Frenchman who now owns this winery clearly enjoys the theatre of life. His innovative approach to the wine tasting experience and the excellent staff (Anne?) is a great combination that you should have on your itinerary in Napa. We opted for the Crystal room experience. The team couldn't have been more helpful and clearly knew their subject. A great place if you're carting a dog with you too.

Raymond is a quiet vineyard a few minutes off of the lesser known Silverado Trail. We stopped here after booking a tour with the Napa Valley Wine Train. Our tour guide was great and very informative.

Raymond has a great atmosphere, and the focus is on using nature and knowledge of soil to help make the best wine. Those people looking for a vineyard with a different decor or theme should definitely make a stop here. It is a very "unique" place.
