Beautiful views of the valley from their deck and we learned a lot from their tour. Not for people who don't like heights but I thought it was a wonderful stop. The grounds are beautiful and very scenic.

The winery is pretty popular – a half-hour-long line for the cable car to get to the winery from the visitor center is the norm, but it is largely worth it. There are nice views from the high points, and a self-guided tour at your own pace, aided by video displays, with four wines included in the tasting. You also... More

We wanted to visit this winery for the tram ride & beautiful views. The self guided tour was very easy to follow & the view was worth the trip. We prefer smaller boutique wineries but enjoyed our visit here.

This is a unique tour starting with a ski lift gondola to the top of the winery. Lovely restaurant seating and cheese and meat plates. Lisa our server was top notch selecting wines that suited our tastes. Great value.

This place is awesome. What a beautiful winery with a awesome view. We had the best server in the tasting room. Maurice has a great personality and makes tasting their wine so much more fun.

This winery was crowded but so worth it. The gondola ride up the mountain was lovely, the views are stunning. The self guided wine tour was fabulous with fantastic views around every corner. The wines were okay on the self-guided tour, but we also did the VIP tasting at the top and those wines were simply fabulous. We thoroughly enjoyed... More

The only reading I didn't give more stars is that we weren't there long enough to enjoy everything there. The tram ride was cool. The tour was self guided and they pour along the way. Great thing is you get a commemorative wine glass to take with you.

The tram takes you straight up to the monastery where the tasting room is. Probably the best view in the Napa Valley. Fun experience and good wine

We went first thing on a weekday morning and had a blast. The gondola ride is short, but it's long enough - I didn't feel the need to stare out the window for hours, just see some views and arrive. It was not crowded when we were there and we really enjoyed the self paced tour. It was a nice... More

The short gondola trip gave a nice view of the area, as did the patios at the top. After the self guided tour with wine tastings, we sat of on a side patio and enjoyed a very pleasant wine food pairing with their charcuterie and cheese platter. The server spent some time explaining the optimum pairings and the effect of... More
