Enjoy visiting their place when we get a chance to be in Napa. We find their Pine Station Red to be one of the best values in the Napa valley. Great wine at a great price. Also tried their zin and Chablis this time. But, our focus is always their great Pine Station red. Give it a try and you'll be sure to order more. The family owned winery is a treat to visit too since they are fun at the tasting bar. The nicest guys around.

This is a normal stop for my wife and I in the valley. The wine is good, but it's Bob and Mike who make this place. Both are engaging and always ready to share a story.

and Mike, the proprietor, should have been a comedian. We really enjoyed our stop here - and bought wine which was pretty good. Hazel is a red lab - probably a little ridgeback in her, and she likes to sit on a pile of boxes by the window and capture flies (very useful). She is really friendly - Mike ought to stop banishing her to the back room!

This is the kind of cool, small production winery that used to be all over the place in Napa - if you want an authentic, hands on producer to regale you with stories of life in the Valley (he was a contractor before taking up winemaking) and to pour some pretty good wines - this is it.

I wrote a review recently regarding my stay at the Milat Vineyards Accommodations; if you're looking for information about that, see the following link:

The winery itself was a ton of fun as well. The tasting was pretty laid back. Some of the other wineries we visited were so tied up in the history of their winery and the quality of their wine that they forgot to give a good tasting experience (or make good wine!). I didn't get that at all at Milat, and found that I enjoyed their wines more than most we tried. Joyce was manning the counter when we showed up and, when we asked, she was quick to walk us through the winemaking process, from choosing which grapes to plant on which plots of land to the proper pairings of their wines. Though we bugged her for 2 hours (when she probably would rather have left to eat lunch) she was welcoming and gracious. You can taste at your leisure, and the prices on their wines can't be beat. The $10 tasting fee is waived with the purchase of 1 bottle of wine (most are in the $20-$30 range).

Please visit Milat if you're in the area...the casual tasting atmosphere and the high-quality wine are worth a few of your hours and dollars.

I went to Milat with a group of 11 friends (we called ahead to schedule) over Memorial Day weekend. We were looking for a small winery run by the owners who would be unpretentious and able to educate us about their wines. Well, Bob provided that and more. He gave us the grand tour of the place and kept us entertained and laughing for a helluva long time. The wines are all very good and affordable (we bought a bunch), and we all learned quite a bit to boot. I highly recommend Milat for a refreshing, unique experience in Saint Helena.
