This winery is by appointment only, so be sure to book early. This winery does not seem to carry any food but they do have outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon including their proprietary Insigna. Will be back to try some more and enjoy more of the view.

This is one of the older vineyards in Napa producing high quality wine. It is a hillside vineyard meaning that the grape yields are low and the wine perhaps a bit rare. The tastings are by reservation and are either $30 or $60. Had the $60 tasting with eight wines including their top recent vintage (2008). Friendly staff.

Great wine, great scenery. We did the terrace tasting on a beautiful sunny day, was an amazing terrace and scenery. The wine was really nice and had a great time!

I personally was not blown away by their wines..just personal taste I guess. They all seemed to have a "bite", not smooth. My bf found the exact same to be true.

But the people who did our tasting were friendly, courteous, and helpful.

The place is breathtakingly beautiful though. I have some stunning photos from there.

The vast majority of wine tastings are conducted inside, standing around a bar or at a table. JPV's terrace tastings are outside on a terrace overlooking their vineyards. The setting is lovely and the tasting is self-paced, so you can take your time and enjoy tasting the wines at a leisurely pace while looking out over the beautiful scenery. There are also more staff available than at most tastings to answer questions and talk with. We spent about two hours and had a wonderful time. Tastings are by reservation only, so call ahead or sign up via their website.
