Our group had a fun tour here and enjoyed the tour as well as the tasting. This winery is a bit quirky with funky art throughout the house and grounds. There is a lovely picnic spot among the garden art- a fun way to spend an afternoon with friends.

We stumbled across this winery while on a bike trip, so glad neither of us had to drive home just mount the bikes.
The winery and its cellars with the huge oak barrels from France are stunning. We loved the wines and purchased four bottles, They were delivered to our hotel and had already arrived upon our return. Thanks for this excellent service!
We have seen many wineries throughout the world, Clos Pegase reminds of Tuscany.

Trips to Napa can be overwhelming. So many wineries to choose from and they can all seem the same after awhile. Our visit to Clos Pegase this morning was truly exceptional and we could not recommend it more highly. Every single part of the visit, from the grounds and the Michael Graves designed building to the amazing sculptures that fill the grounds and the building, to the tour and, finally of course, to the wines, it was an experience like no other. We were fortunate to have the private tour to ourselves and our host, Brian, could not have been more helpful, more knowledgable and more delightful. Clos Pegase is an experience like no other and I could not recommend it more highly.

Loved this place. Setting is beautiful. Wine tasting was great. The staff even gave the kids Etch-a-Sketches to play with while we tasted the wine.

When looking at the list of wineries in the Napa Valley, it can be a bit overwhelming. I brought my wife to Clos Pegase after visiting there in the early 90's. The winery left such a good impression, I had to return. Even if you aren't a wine drinker, eat a picnic lunch in their re-production 17th century garden and stroll the ground to view the sculptures.

We signed up for the Artisan wine tour which included their reserve wines and a tour of the caves. It's a great place to be when the outside temps are over 90. We were the only couple on the tour, so we had plenty of quality time with our tour guide. We also got great tips on places to eat while in Napa.

But we were there for wines. The tasting in a private room was awesome, delicious and educational. Our guide was a certified wine snob and treated us to some very good varieties with plenty of time to savor and discuss. We ended up having a case shipped home, including some recently released 1995 Cabernets. I remembered all of the Clos Pegase offerings to have a silky smooth texture, even back when I was a beer drinker.

This is the kind of place where time slows down. If you're on a schedule to hit as many vineyards as possible, don't both stopping here. Grab a lunch at CalMart, sign up for one of the tours and plan on spending a few hours of peace.
