Try to call ahead to reserve one of the outdoor tables at the top of the hill in the back of the vineyard. Our guide got us up there and it was just GORGEY-PORGEY Definitely a great stop but get that back area reserved!!!

This was the perfect Napa valley visit. We can't say enough about the personalized tour, the thorough explanation of the wine making process, the tasting and the not at all hard sell. It's a very special place that employs very special people. Even in the rain the setting was absolutely stunning. Darren was our expert guide and we so enjoyed... More

We had a private tour and barrel tasting as part of a private group. Our barrel tasting was held at the new Tasting Pavillion at the top of the hill. It overlooks the vineyards. We did a side-by-side wine comparisons with their 2014 Western Bench and 2014 Dragon's Terrace and then got to experiment mixing them together. These wines show... More

Visited here as 2 couples, reservations are a must. The winery is a gorgeous, family-owned operation. Our tour guide, Jacqueline, was very knowledgeable and so nice. The tastings were delicious and we were offered a "revisit" of the wines several times. We took home a bottle of the 2013 current release. We plan to put it away for a few... More

Intimate, personal tour was very pleasant and full of good information about the wine, land, and philosophy. Great if you like this particular type of red blend. Other tours are somewhat similar, so recommend picking a variety of types of you are in Napa. Recommended stop overall.

We scored on this one. Actually hit a time they were processing grapes on the crush pad right in front of the winery. We've been to so many places, but not seen actual production yet. They took us right to the machines and let us taste the sorted berries. After that and a tour of the facility, we did the... More

We had an appointment for a tasting tour, which was very good. The wine is good, not great but good. When we finished our tour we didn't had any signal to ask for an Uber, so we asked for their wifi signal and they didn't give it to us. We were welcomed to step outside, after spending more than 500... More

This most recent visit was my third time doing the wine experience at Quintessa and I would do it again and again. There are a couple of experiences that you can do. I suggest doing the private tasting in the terrace above the vineyard. They put you in your own little hut at the top of the mountain and take... More

What a wonderful session (10 folks in total) to hear from the author of the Wine Bible. We went through the four classic grapes (Cab Sauv, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauv Blanc). Her delivery and characterization of the varietals provided an excellent perspective of what to expect. Of course it was finished off with a tasting of the 2006 Quintessa... More
