I have been coming to the valley yearly for 13 years. Along the way I have made some great friends , drank some great wines, and always had a great time. Joseph Cellars: Joe & Nicole, Jonesy, and Kristof the winemaker, have by far exceeded any experience I have ever had. And of course, let's not forget the wine... Every one of their varietals was Fantastic!! My girlfriend and I loved every bottle. Jonesy, with his culinary background, described all the subtle nuances and flavors Kristof and the grapes were producing. And expertly pairing it with endless possibilities. The wine club shipments will be greatly anticipated with all the pairings in our repertoire. To a great family & crew, from the bottom of our hearts, Thank You. And to all reading this, this will become one of the most sought after labels. Do yourself a favor and stop in to see Jonesy & join the club before it sells out!

“Jonesy was the best.....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

.....wine tasting leader of our trip this year. The chardonay was excellent as was the chesse spread and the Point Reyes Blu Cheese. The cave was a wonderful venue for the tasting and their reds were all excellent. All four of our couples joined the wine club and became members # 81, 82, 83, and 84, part of the exclusive Century club with all it's benefits. Can't wait until the club room and kitchen are completed and the hil behind the winery is filled with chardonnay grape vineyards.

“Best part of our trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2013

I can't even begin to express how amazing this winery is, and will be once finished. It's currently under construction, but was really neat to see the idea and dream behind this winery. Jonezy took us on a tour of the caves, drank and shared wonderful wine with us while teaching us about the wine making process and flavors. He took us into the fields and let us taste the grapes and had cheese pairings set up. Was honestly the best and most memorable part of our trip this weekend. Cannot wait to go back and see the finished product, but still an absolute delight in the mean time.

“Wonderful wine, stunning view, AND they're cool? YES!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2012

Joseph Cellars was one of our first Napa Valley experiences and we know we totally lucked out! Super knowledgeable but entirely approachable, the people here really made our visit! And the property is GORGEOUS! We got to stand where the tasting room is going to be, overlooking the vineyard towards the mountain range and it just felt like heaven! My favorite here was Joseph Cellars cab, but hubby says the zin. Either way, sign us up for a wine tasting here any day because it's awesome!

“Great new winery in Napa!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2012

I've been coming to Napa since the 80's and this year, we came upon Joseph Cellars. We met Ace and Joe at a wine tasting at the Wine Country Inn and immediately hit it off with these guys. We bought their delightful zin and enjoyed it with our dinner at Cook that night in St. Helena. The next day, we drove up to their winery which is under construction and were treated to a fun tour with tastings in their newly mined caves and soon to be tasting room. What a refreshing Napa experience! Great wine! Great people! It'll be fun to watch it all come together. We're looking forward to going back in 2013 when it's all completed.
