The Facility was incredible. It is a beautiful place and an impressive operation. Our guide didn’t appear to be very interested in being there. Maybe he had a bad day, but it was a poor effort on his part that left us both wishing we had skipped this tasting.

We just visited Napa last week and had already mapped out where we were planning to go, though we had a little time to add something if we wanted. Usually, when we visit a winery, we ask our guide about their favorite vineyards, other than their own. Time after time, people were mentioning Palmaz, one that I had never heard of before. Turns out that it was built by the physician that invented the heart stent. And, he ended up building some much unique technology into this endeavor. The first mind boggling feature is their 18 story deep cave that allows them to bring their grapes into the main level and then everything is gravity fed down to the fermenting tanks and then eventually to the barrels. Pretty amazing. Then they showed us the technology used to monitor the fermentation process that includes a heads-up display projected on the curved walls above the tanks. This shows a whole series of measurements that monitor the environment inside the tanks so they can then make adjustments, when necessary. All of this technology means nothing though unless the resulting wine. And, it wasn't good...it was truly great. I am very impressed and we ended up joining their club.

Adrian was our tour guide and he handled our large group of 11 college friends so graciously! He was so well versed in the operation and processes of the winery. This winery is one of the most unique in the world with the blending of wine making and technology. The tasting and pairing of hors d'oeuvres was really special! The facility is very clean, bright and beautiful. The grounds are extraordinary! A must see in Napa!

The Palmaz family has done a wonderful job and creating this experience. The guide we had was very knowledgeable about the winery and the wine experience. Showing the extent that technology has integrated with the wine industry..... amazing too say the least. Wine presentation was excellent. A GREAT afternoon.
