Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Im a huge White Zinfandel fan, so a visit to Sutter Home winery whilst in Napa just HAD to be done. We had left everything quite late so couldn't get a tour, but instead enjoyed a lovely glass of the wine and sat outside in the grounds just enjoying the ambience.

The staff were really friendly and chatty, and the gentleman behind the bar took time out to have a chat with us about the process of the wine making.

The wine was delicious and I am so glad I visited.

Good wine and very reasonably priced. You need a reservation for tasting and we didn’t have one but they let us buy a glass of wine for $5. Most wines are $7 a bottle and they have lots of gift items to purchase. It’s a fun stop. Most wineries in Napa now want you to make a reservation which is annoying because it’s always fun to just check out a winery, find out the cost for tasting and then decide. Napa used to be fun but now it’s almost a chore to go there.

Hanging my head in shame, I have never had Sutter Home wines before - I always thought they were "cheap". We stopped here on a whim because it was so pretty. And it is gorgeous! Sit outside on their beautiful lawn - adirondack chairs are so comfortable - admire their rose gardens.....I dont care what you think about their wines, heck, the tasting fee is only $10 (more if you want to go up in value) and that is nothing to pay and enjoy this setting!
So ok - the sweet wines I would say are more like wine drinks than wine. And I do like a little bit of sweet wine once in awhile, but not enough to buy a bottle of it....so I did enjoy tasting the wines. They have one flight that is sweet wine mixed with fruit juice and I think this would have been way too sweet but I cant honestly critique it since I didnt try it.
Husband had the most expensive flight (wow, $15) and it was ok. Supposedly the wines tasted here have a higher alcohol content that what they sell. I dont know if that is true or not. But we did not feel as though we wasted our time sitting back and luxuriating in the sun and sights....
And it was entertaining watching the 2 men put holiday lights on the palm trees!
If you are lucky you will get to talk with Simone who is as sweet as can be and has the most beautiful smile! She makes you feel immediately welcome!

We love White Zinfandel, so we had to go to the place that started it all. Unfortunately, doe to COVID, most of it was closed. We did get to go into the wine tasting room and gift shop.

Absolutely fantastic wine tasting at Sutter Home Winery.
To start with, the base tasting is FREE! With very, very reasonable upgrades (up to $10). Upgrades included sweet, dry and others... essentially a flight of tastings to suit what you like.
The staff let us taste in our own time in the garden with no pressure, no standing over us. They came and took the empties and refilled as well, no need to go inside. Bliss!
Garden themselves were stunning. Beautiful exterior along with a shaded gazebo.
Yuni was excellent, offering explanations to each glass and was extremely patient.
Also - you can buy small bottles to take away in plastic bottles! Can safely say they transport home absolutely fine :).
A must visit in Napa!!

Beautiful grounds. Great for pics. Staff unfriendly and no customer service. The majority of the participants were disappointed. The staff stated that the bubbly Pink Moscato was only available at the winery which is false. We found offerings online. Bad experience.

This facility was still only partially open due to Covid, not offering tasting without reservations and not providing tours of the winery. We were allowed to enter the gift shop and purchase their products which we did. The price of wine at this shop is quite good compared to regular liquor stores.

Even though we weren't able to tour the facility, we were quite happy we could purchase their products at a reduced price.

We had been passing the Sutter Home Winery several times while going to different wineries during the week we were in Napa. The sign always said "Closed". Finally, on Saturday (the last day we were there) it said "Open". We stopped in thinking since they had been closed for so long, people would not yet know that they were open, and we might be able to get a wine tasting without a reservation. At first we were told there was no way we could get a wine tasting without a reservation. They said the next opening was on Thursday. When we told them that we had to leave to go back home the next day, they changed their mind and said we could get a tasting immediately! We were very happy they decided they could accommodate us. After getting a normal tasting, we mentioned we would be interested in joining their wine club. After that, they gave us tastings of any wine that we wanted to taste. They didn't even charge for any of the tastings. We did join the wine club. They gave us a special price of $10.00 for shipping. Since we joined the wine club, we got the bottles we ordered at a discounted price, which made up for the shipping cost. We had been to a lot of wineries while we were in Napa, and all the other wineries wanted us to order more than $100 worth of wine, plus pay for shipping to join their wine club. Sutter Home charged us less than $60 for 8 bottles of wine, including shipping. We paid more than that for some of the wine tastings we attended!

This place puts all the "exclusive' wineries to shame.
The folks here are knowledgeable and professional, but they are also friendly and personable, which was much appreciated.
The basic tasting is free - your heard right - and the wines are very tasty. We had our first white zinfandel, which they apparently introduced.
We bought a lot of wine at a reasonable price,and had a great time. They also have a nice selection of gift items.
We missed out on the house tour because of maintenance.
The garden is very nice. We got some good ideas for fragrant rose varieties there.

This was easily my favorite stop in Napa Valley. It's basically a large shop with three tasting options. One was a free tasting with a good variety of 4 different wines, one was a list of 5 sweeter wines for $5, and the final tasting for $5 was a variety of specialty wines. Outside, there is an inn restricted to inn guests only but we were able to sit in the picturesque gazebo, explore the small rose garden, and check out the lovely koi pond. We decided to pop outside between each of our pours but you can park yourself inside for your tastings as well.

Shout out to Yesica who helped us with our tastings and was super helpful, informative, and friendly! She was key to our great visit!

The shop itself had a great variety of wines for purchase, including the Sutter Home mini bottles that I love! They had a couple packs of 16 mini-bottles-they should sell these everywhere! We opted to buy a regular bottle and build a couple 4-packs of mini bottles mixing and matching our favorite wines. We had just as much fun shopping as we did tasting.

Overall the vibe at Sutter home, is very comfortable, casual, and fun. We enjoyed ourselves and would definable recommend and return!
