Nice view for sure. Nice people in welcome area and in tasting room.... But the wines weren't as good as I remembered.

The hostess was graceful and highly informative. The setting was pleasant and relaxed. The prices are somewhat high for the quality of the wine but they may be relying on their reputation. We didn't buy but would try them again.

It is difficult to pick favorite winery but if forced to name one in Napa/Sonoma this would be it. Everything was perfect ...the wine, the view, the tasting experience, and most especially Jackie who made this experience even more special. Don't miss this one.

I only belong to one wine club, and it's Phelps. They make a nice Chardonnay, and a wonderful Cabernet Sauvignon. Their Insignia and Backus wines are Napa benchmarks. The view from their terrace over the vineyard and hills is gorgeous. You may see some wild turkeys or deer. You need an appointment, so be sure to call in advance.

I have always enjoyed Phelps Insignia wine and made a point to visit their winery. The views were fantastic and the outside setting on a perfect sunny day was spectacular.

We just felt that the servers were a little on the snobbish side, not ubfreindly but not very enthusiastic either.
