Great tasting experience
Sep 2021
One of the first tastings my wife and I went to and we loved it. Sam did a great job of explaining the history as well as talking to us about production and the actual wines we were drinking. We really enjoyed moving around to the different tasting rooms as it allowed us to get a little bit of insight into the fermentation and aging process. Highly recommend!

Great family trip
Aug 2021 • Family
Hi! We traveled with tween-aged children and our tour guide was wonderful and they were kind to the kids, which I appreciated. I think it’s wise for Napa establishments to realize people need to travel with their kids so I appreciate them welcoming us, and not everyone does. The wine was (of course) fabulous. Cakebread quality is fantastic.

Must tour when in Napa Valley
Jul 2021 • Family
By far our favourite winery visited this trip. Sam was knowledgeable and you got to see the wine making facilities. Grounds are gorgeous as are the buildings.

Pricey for a tour but it was nice
May 2021 • Friends
My friend found this winery for a bach party of six because it was one of the only ones in the area we were staying, who would take groups of six, and had a tour of the vineyard, as opposed to just a tasting. It's pricey at $75 per person but I've never been to Napa before so I have no reference if that's the average price or not.

Still, we enjoyed the tour. Shout out to our tour guide (I can't remember her name but it was the 10 AM tour on 5/21/21), who had to put up with our incessant picture taking. She even let us pick our own carrots from their garden, where they repurpose the soil from the grapes and grow various crops from.

Throughout the tour, we got to taste sauvignon blanc, rose, chardonnay, pinot noir, and merlot. Everyone's faves were definitely the sauv and the pinot - so much so that we ended up ordering 2 cases of the two wines (24 bottles) to split between the six of us. The more you order, the cheaper shipping is and it arrived pretty quickly.

Like I said, my only complaint would be the price point for the tour but overall, it was a nice experience.

Classic Napa
Apr 2021
Jack and Dolores Cakebread bought a 22-acre parcel in Rutherford in 1972 and the rest is classic Napa history! Cakebread was on our short list of must visit wineries, and we were not disappointed. First, the property is gorgeous, with a casual yet sophisticated ambience (I love the woods used for the buildings). Construction on a new Visitor Center was completed in 2019, and subsequently won Robb Report’s 2020 Best of the Best wine tasting experience. Matt, our knowledgeable and friendly wine host, led us through a tasting of both reds and whites. It was a beautiful experience sipping these elegant wines, seated outdoors on a lovely, spacious patio with views of the vineyards. My husband and I rarely agree on which wine we like the most (honestly, I loved them all, especially the Cakebread Chardonnay Reserve). This time we were both blown away by the 2017 Dancing Bear Ranch Cabernet (Howell Mountain). Being at the winery is a great opportunity to sample (and purchase) a wine that you likely will not find back home.

Linda Y, Thank you so much for taking the time to send a review. We're very proud of the Cakebread history as well as the property and all it has to offer. We love that you were able to discover some wines you've not tried and especially agree on a few together. Yes! the 2017 Dancing Bear is definitely a staff favorite! We look forward to hosting you again in the near future.

Way too structured for a wine tasting
Apr 2021 • Couples
This was a very well organized, structured, relatively small pour tasting on a gorgeous afternoon in the large, nicely shaded garden. Unlike many other vineyards, there was little opportunity to explore the area. Each tasting group was individually escorted to the parking lot at the end.

In our opinion, the wines did not showcase Cakebread at its best, as we have consumed a lot of Cakebread in the past. Our server was not particularly engaging either.

We anticipated a much better experience.for a family owned winery.

We love Cakebread!!
Feb 2021 • Couples
We became members here last summer during Covid and have visited several times as a couple and with our kids (12 and 8.

They always treat our kids super nice and we never feel out of place with them with us.

The wine is excellent and their patio seating for members always feels safe and spacious and is so nice and peaceful.

Cheese tray is yummy and their food and wine pairing is out of this world. Highly recommend!
