This was our first winery to visit on our Napa trip. We received a 2 for 1 tasting brochure from the chamber of commerce when we arrived in town so we thought "what the heck, let's go". We are so thankful that we did. Upon arrival, Matt greeted us in the tasting room. His friendliness and personality got us off... More

This is a most pleasant wine tasting room in Calistoga and though I honestly didn't care for any of their wines compared to the many others we visited? The guy who hosted us was knowledgeable and most pleasant. Would I go back? No. Glad I tried it once!

We thoroughly enjoyed our tasting, and learned so much about the wines and the Calistoga area from Megan. We were so impressed by the quality of the wines, especially the Charbono, that we joined their wine club.

The tasting room is at the end of the main road in Calistoga, you cant miss it. Its a smaller place with three bars for tasting, all in the same room. Their dog would greet you when you walked in which was kind of nice. I believe we were served by the owner but not 100% sure. My wife and... More

This is a great tasting room with friendly and engaging staff. The wine selection is good and the tasting guide very helpful, but the whole experience is made so much more homely by the attentions of Kiefer the dog.

Excellent wines, friendly tasting room. If you go give Kiefer a pet for us, he's a rad tasting room dog with a good rescue story.

It is just a tasting, no tour, it is $5.00 if you don;t buy. The wine was the best we tasted out of 4 local wineries

My husband and I visited several years ago on a trip to Napa. We found this winery accidentally as we were leisurely making our way through an afternoon of wine tasting. We were extremely impressed by the service. We were invited for a barrel tasting by the owner's father during our visit. We were so impressed by the hospitality and... More

We visited here as a part of a wine tour and was very excited to visit after reading the reviews. The tasting room is very humble. The service was ok at best - server really didn't seem interested in being more than pleasant at best. The wine was terrible. Apparently each week they change the wines on their menus. We... More
