Owner description: Founded in 1985, Goosecross is a winery and vineyard owned by Christi Coors Ficeli and her family. Located in Yountville, Goosecross is known for producing high quality wines and providing excellent customer service. They stay focused on the basics – sustainable farming with attention, care and diligence in the cellar. Their wines are only available through the winery, 100% direct to consumer. A visit to Goosecross’ wine tasting room in Yountville will delight you with its casual, friendly atmosphere and outstanding hospitality. The winery tasting room is the place to taste, experiment, and learn in a laid-back beautiful space, and in the company of knowledgeable hosts who are passionate about wine.

We visited Goosecross as part of our Segway tour, and were blown away by the wines! The manager of the tasting room was extremely informative of all the wines and even offered us a couple to taste that weren't on the original tastings! The winery had a very intimate feel to it and there is the opportunity to sit outside and enjoy the grounds.

I never write online reviews but felt the need to do so for this lovely winery! My family went for a short trip to Napa and I used TripAdvisor, among other sites and some personal recommendations, to select wineries to visit. Out of six visits, Goosecross was our absolute favorite! The staff was extremely pleasant and down to earth. They seemed genuinely interested in the wine and our experience rather than just trying to sell us. Our group was a mix of red and white wine lovers and we did the mini-tour and tasting. All of us enjoyed each of the wines and even the red-lovers ended up ordering the Viognier. The grounds themselves were very picturesque as well. Definitely recommend making a stop here!

This was one of our favorite wineries on this trip. We loved the small, cosy feeling of this operation. We walked right by the employees bottling on a truck outside. Everything about this place was warm and relaxed. The wines were excellent, and our server was very personable. We were able to talk with her and ask questions about other places to visit and things to do. Excellent experience.

Hi Jane, Thank you for all the fantastic things you said about Goosecross. Yes, we were bottling the day you came to visit and it is a fascinating process to watch. One of the many benefits of being a small winery is that visitors can see how a real working winery operates. We're happy you had a great experience here and we're honored to be one of your favorite wineries in Napa! Thanks again for your super review.

After spending 3 days in wine country, Goosecross came out as our clear favorite. A colleague who used to live in the area highly recommended it and I can see why. Very laid back atmosphere, very nice people, beautiful grounds, and the wines were incredible. We ended up buying way more wine that we expected to. If you spend even one day in Napa, you have to find time for this little boutique winery.
