We were in Napa in late October 2013. Arger-Martucci was recommended to us by a tasting hostess at another winery. The winery is totally unassuming, tucked away on a side street off of the highway. This is not the Disneyland of wineries, so if you are looking for glitz and glamour this isn't the winery for you. If you are looking for a boutique winery experience in a relaxing atmosphere and exceptional wines, you need to include Arger-Martucci as one of your stops. I really liked the fact that this winery ages their wines, especially cabs, before they release them. We really enjoyed the Pinot and the Cab. The wines are all reasonably priced, especially considering the cabs were 2008 and older. This winery is a hidden gem.

This is a place that you'd probably miss unless someone told you about it. It's a couple of blocks off the main drag. We discovered it with Karl from Platypus Tours. The tasting took place behind the family home, under and arbor next to the pool. Fred, the host, is well worth the visit. (We plan to visit A-M on future trips!) This is the epitome of the small, boutique, locally owned and operated winery and is a nic e balance to "the big guys." The wines are marvelous! The 2009 Syrah is special. We aren't normally Syrah drinkers, but after tasting it, bought a couple of bottles to bring home - and are gonna order more. It's just a bit (2 blocks) out of the way, but you should go out of your way (2 blocks) to visit!

This little place is off the radar of most - we found it through our driver who recommended it as a smaller place to visit. Fred was our server - a delightfully ornery yet helpful guy who sounds a bit like Jack Nicholson at his best and was very knowledgable about the wines. This place is just a few tables situated between a pool and a small house and the microclimate is warmer than most areas of Napa so don't over dress if it is warm out. The wines were quite good and the price will make you think you've stepped back 30 years in time. If you've a taste for dessert wines buy a bit of the Dulcinea - we bought three and are not sorry.
Fred, you are a gem!

He says: We visited A-M last week and enjoyed a wonderful morning tasting and seminar by the pool with Fred. Whatever you read about Fred in the other reviews are probably true. He made A-M one of our favorite stops during our visit. A perfect combination of enthusiasm, education and bs. And yes, the wine was very good too. We tend to visit the smaller vineyards to sample what we can not get at home. Worth the stop. Buy some wine - no fees. This was easily one of our favorites.

This small winery and vineyard was among our favorites of the trip! Beautiful setting, private tasting by the pool with great wine discussion. The Illiad is unlike anything I've ever tasted and the Syrah turned me into a Syrah-lover.

Great tasting, great staff. Tasting fee waived with purchase
