We were not greeted, had to wait to ask someone where to go for our appointment. We were not given any information, history, background, etc about the wines we paid to try. Everyone was friendly and the cheese board we purchased was delicious, but it was not the experience we expected or hoped for compared to other wineries in Napa.

We had a wonderful experience. We weren't exactly sure what to expect with a tasting room rather than being on the vineyard but we loved the atmosphere, our hosts were so friendly and did a fabulous job. The food truck was amazing, we fell in love with the flavors we were tasting. Wine was delicious, one friend was even sold on the rosé and bought a bottle. Great place, would definitely recommend.

My daughter and I arrived early for our Bruschetta and Wine Pairing. Troy showed us to our seats at the bar and immediately offered to give us two extra tastings while the food truck was preparing for the day. We had a great time! The wines & food were delicious. The atmosphere is friendly. We decided that the Cliff Family Winery was our favorite of the weekend and I also joined the Wine Club.

Had a great time at Clif Family! We enjoyed the entire process from the moment we stepped in the door. The wine and food pairing was really fun. Loved the wines so much I decided to join the club and get regular shipments. The food from the truck is to die for. After the wine and food pairing, we stayed and ordered additional food items! I would recommend this winery as a must visit!

Bruschetteria Trio on 1/14/17 12:00 PM

Our group reserved the Bruschetteria Trio tasting experience and had a wonderful time. The price is well worth it (Clif Family could easily charge more for what they provide), and they were accommodating to my wife's gluten sensitivity. This is the best way to learn about and enjoy wine - by matching it with food. Many/Most Napa County wineries don't serve food with wines, so Clif was great!

I'm a cyclist so this was the winery for me. I really enjoyed my visit there and the ambiance was a mix of my interests with Clif foods, cycling pictures, books, jerseys and wine. It was a really comfortable place and the food from the food truck was delicious, especially the Porchetta.

King of the Mtn, "Maillot A Pois Rouges," Tasting on 1/01/17 2:30 PM

There were 5 of us at the tasting and all were in agreement that the red wines were mediocre, a couple were definitely not drinkable, no comparison to many of the other wineries we went to which charged the same for much better tastings/experience. Wines were only made slightly better by the few nuts we were given to taste with them. Truly disappointed, wanted this to be much better.

Very loud. Staff person helping us was stretched too thin and not engaged. Him having to address too many customers at one time also meant service was slow. Unfortunately, it was the worst tasting experience we had out of 13 places. Had a great time there a couple of years ago, so it could have been an anomaly. Pretty frustrated since we paid for a private, seated tasting.

This is a boutique winery and sells only to club members or directly through their local store. The Gran Ciima is a great way to taste their wine and see how food pairings truly interact with the way the different wines taste. There is not a huge selection, but the hostess is charming.
