“Ehler's is the reason we visit Napa every October...”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

We fell in love (literally!) October 2010 with this place (and with each other in the Olive Garden!). The entire staff at Ehler's truly go out of their way to educate and please all five senses of their guests, new and returning (like us!). Take in the laid-back, quaint, and rustic surroundings of what they're all about...great wine, knowledgable and friendly staff (Maria, you're the best!) deep-rooted value and commitment to the environment and cardiovascular research.

....in my opinion, Ehler's is what wine country is all about.

“Favorite winery in the valley”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

Ehlers wine is exquisite - that's really all I can say about it. The owner of the B&B we stayed at suggested visiting this winery and I have to say that it is one of the best in Napa. Beautiful tasting room and beyond that extremely rich, bold and overwhelming wine.

“You must visit this winery in Napa Valley”
Reviewed 28 November 2011

This winery has consistently been our favorite over the years while visiting Napa Valley. It is an organic winery with all the grapes being grown right there at their vineyard. The tasting experience is like no other. You sit down on couches in a conversational setting. They bring the wine to you with an assortment of cheeses to pair with the wine. No fighting for elbow room at a tasting bar! The people are wonderful and the wine is fabulous! You need a reservation but one is not hard to get. You won't want to leave!

“Great little winery”
Reviewed 22 October 2011

We loved this place! They accommodated us even though we didn't have an appointment. They actually produce wine from organic grapes. They are also a non profit and donate to a foundation for heart research, I think. The salesperson also took us into the area of the holding tanks and then to the cask room and educated us about their process. Very good service and needless to say it resulted in us making a purchase of their wine club!

I went to Ehlers Winery while driving around Napa Valley area.
Saw the sign and diecided I would check it out. The made us wait about 10minutes until they were finsihed helping soimeone else. The person then came ovefr and offered us bread sticks and cheese. Then he gave us the history of the winery and the wine. I was very intrigued by the heart that is part of the name. It has significant meaaning to them.
After the samplings I bought 2 bottles of wine.
After the purchase they showed us the method for growing planting crops between crops that bring out the flavors of the grapes.
