We've been to Trefethen on multiple occasions but this last time was disappointing. Most of the Napa wineries charge $20-$30 for their tastings, but most of them will at least credit one of them back if you buy some wine. My wife is a big...More

The drive to the winery was beautiful. Tree-lined streets led the way to the beautiful and historic wine tasting building. (I hope it is able to be repaired after the earthquake!) Jesus gave us a wonderful wine tasting experience. He was knowledgeable and very polite....More

Beautiful vineyard & grounds. The wine is very good. We purchased several bottles to take home (Cabernet, Riesling). The Reserve Riesling is excellent.

Tasting at Trefethen is a lively, good time, not your typical experience. Ask for Shannon, she's great! Try their "Dragon's Tooth" (a nod to their Welsh heritage) red and their Viognier which is sublime. Beautiful grounds, easy parking.

Very good wine, buttery flavor, similar to their Chardonnay, but with a better taste. The price was $ 25.00 per bottle. Wish I had bought more.

If you want to learn about wines, don't go here. This is a typical run of the mill vineyard that asks for money, pours you a bit of wine and sends you on your way. We tend to like vineyards where they will spend more...More

Trefethen was the first vineyard that I visited in Napa. The wine was amazing, my favorite was, Dragon's Tooth. Loved the history behind the wine and the family business. We had a great time, had we arrived earlier in the day, I'm not sure we...More

We had a great time at Trefethen. Everyone was really friendly and helped us learn a lot about their wines. And their wines are fantastic! This was my favorite winery that we visited on our trip to Napa. The Dragon's Tooth (a Malbec-heavy blend) is...More
