If you're red wine savvy enough, it goes without saying you should visit this place. Older gents like your's truly still remember the 2002 Insignia. It's truly one of the best reds I have ever tasted and, believe me, I've had quite a few. This is our third visit to the vineyard, previous one 2013. You will have to know... More

Not a big place, not signaled on the road, but really worth it! Beautiful place, great views, very friendly personal and amazing wines on a very professional wine tasting experience. We tasted two whites and five reds, all different. Would recommend to anyone!

We visited on Veteran's Day, which just also happened to be my wife's birthday. How amazingly pleasant to discover they will give you a complimentary tasting if you have served in any of the branches of the military! To say that sets a tone is an understatement! Stefan was a barrel of information, all puns intended. He really was one... More

They recently built a new tasting room here and it is fabulous. Beautiful views and ground around the building. Their Insignia blend and Backus Cab are excellent wines if a little pricey. I could rate the whole experience better if the tasting person had been a little more low key and the two high end wines a little less pricey.... More

We had a private tour and tasting as part of a group event. The winery facility is well done with main room centered around private tasting rooms, the founder's room, barrel room display and also has outside scenic view tasting areas. This winery is one not to miss. The 2014 Pinot Noir (Feestone Vineyards), 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) and... More

We're Insignia Club members and brought our two friends for a tasting. The wines poured were, as always, beautiful. We had a picnic lunch out on the terrace prior to the tasting .

We participated in a wine class/tasting called It Rocks. A certified sommelier was the presenter. The info focused on how wine (Joseph Phelps) tastes differently depending on which region the grapes were produced....the soil/rocks impacts the taste as well as the temps. Excellent presentation and the wine was our favorite from the many we experienced.

We were lucky enough to have had a private tasting at Joseph Phelps. We could not believe how beautiful the setting was here. It was absolutely breathtaking. We were seated on the patio underneath a large umbrella and our hostess told us about the history of the winery and started to pour us the 7 wines that were in our... More
