“Small family owned”
Reviewed 19 April 2013 via mobile

If you like small and family involved wineries look no further.

The wines are good across the board and reasonably priced. I like their Sauvignon Blanc, Retaggio (Sangiovese blend) and their Cabernet Sauvignon.

Rich Salvestrin is a very good wine-maker and will talk to you about the wine if asked.

Can not recommend highly enough. Check them out.

“Amazing wine and experience”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

I am a wine novice and we had the pleasure of visiting Salvestrin several years ago. It was the undisputed highlight of our trip. We sat outside on a perfect August day, ate lunch and sampled wine. The family invited us into the vineyard, educated us on the history and then brought out a platter of freshly picked grapes. The whole experience was so relaxed and enjoyable. Since then, I have ordered wine for myself and gifts for friends. Every time, the service has been incredible. This is a truly thoughtful, family owned business that cares about their products and customers. Please make it a point to stop here.

“Small, Excellent Winery”
Reviewed 18 October 2012

This winery depicts the real essence of the Napa Valley and it's historic past. It is a sincere and true gem in the small, intimate winery world. Their wines are excellent and the atmosphere is true to the "old" Valley.

“Nice winery to visit.”
Reviewed 17 July 2012

We visited here on June 29. The wine is good and the grounds are pretty. I don't remember anything really special about the wine or winery. Our guide brought us here. We sat outside at a picnic table and tasted several wines. We enjoyed it and purchased a couple of bottles.

“Love this family owned winery!”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

We have loved Salvestrin for years. Our most recent visit was incredible, led by one of the family - lots of history and such a pleasant experience, I've started sending my good friends here. The only downside - they ran out of my favorite Retaggio! More is coming, so don't worry! This isn't your stand 5 people deep at the bar and have someone splash wine in your glass, it's a nice comfortable sit and enjoy the wine experience in the vineyard or inside their beautifull tasting room. Highly recommended!
