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.

Thanks so much for visiting Goosecross and for your terrific review! Jose has been our Tasting Room Manager for just over 9 years now, so he has a lot of great experience and stories to share. It sounds like you enjoyed your bike tour, and we hope to see you back at Goosecross on your next trip to Napa Valley. Thanks again.

I added this winery to our itinerary on our day with a driver because it was ranked so highly on tripadvisor and yelp but was actually a bit disappointed. Not sure if our driver dropped the ball in making our reservation but it seemed as if they were not ready for us. The lady behind the counter was nice enough but did not even put down the donut she was eating to pour our wine....she actually held the donut with one hand and opened the wine with the other....awkward! The wine was good and we bought a couple of bottles but it was not the intimate experience we had at Keever, Cliff Lude, Ehlers, etc.

Jenny ,
Thank you for visiting our family winery while you were in the Napa Valley. We appreciate you seeking out Goosecross, but I'm sorry we did not provide you with the intimate experience you were hoping for, and you literally caught us with our hand in the cookie jar. ;-) Rather than make excuses, I'll leave it at this - I know we can do better than the awkward service you received and we're working on it.

We're happy to hear you liked the wines, so thank you for purchasing a couple bottles during your visit, we hope you enjoy them. We take pride in producing great wines, and have been in business 28 years now. Our customers mean the world to us, and we want to provide you with a better experience. So please come back the next time your travel plans take you to Napa. It would be a pleasure to greet you again. Thank you.

Best customer service - hands down! Very small little tasting room. It was all about the service and the wines here. We enjoyed the tasting so much - even after being picked on for being "vegetarians from Texas!" :) Lots of fun, laughter and a great sense if dealing with people who loved their job. Thumbs up!

If there's one thing we do best at Goosecross, it's play with people all in good fun...but it really has to be all about outstanding hospitality and great wine. Thanks for playing so well with us and for visiting our winery - you've earned your stripes now. :-)

I felt the need to write this review because I keep hearing the same thing from my friends and clients that I send to Goosecross Cellers.
"When we arrive, we are treated like kings and queens!" It's as if we are the most important person in that tasting room."
I have taken many clients personally to the tasting room and the attention and service is always the same. No matter how crowded it is, they acknowledge you and ask you what would you like to start with...whites?...reds???
I personally am a red wine drinker and I am always offered what I enjoy.
Everyone I take purchases wine or becomes a wine club member. The wine is good, hands down. But the service and treatment of the customer is what keeps us coming back. I live in the valley and have done tastin in many wineries. Nobody treats you as nice as the Goosecross staff!
Come on down. You will not be disappointed!!

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.
