    Simply the best. If you are in Napa you have to come here. Try the Chardonnay and if you're lucky the Rubiyat is in season. Prepare to be addicted for life.

    Greg was great- learned a lot about wine in general. He talked with us for 15 mins after the tasting and was happy to give us in depth info about wine tasting. Great experience!

    Get a reservation ahead of time but one of the best tours and tastings in Napa. You get to try the wines in the barrel room!

    The name on the mailbox is your only indicator that you're at the right place. the chardonnay is a standout but everything here is superb.

    Very pleasant Chardonnays but Jo held us hostage in the barrel room for the tasting and flapped her jaws while we developed hypothermia.

    One of the best winery tours, especially in lovely weather, their garden is a treasure chest of creative wonders and landscaping expertise.

    Whites are great. Tasting experience is fun. They pour in private groups of 8 or less people. Advanced apt necessary

    Wines are excellent. The tasting (general one) is nothing special. If you've never had cakebread, go to taste the wines. If you are familiar, skip for something else.

    They open at 10am and are on the right side for easy access going North. Lots of non distributed stuff.

    Barrett gave us a free pour when we came without a reservation and couldn't get us on a tour right away. But then we were kicked out of the courtyard for not being part of a tour. I wasn't impressed.

    Wow. They have really jacked up the prices. Used to be worth the tasting and tour of $15 now is $35. Better wines in Napa. Overrated at this point.
