I think this is a great winery, with amazing wines! I would suggest it for a smaller group (ie. 2-3 people), because you will be able to enjoy the amazing view while you sip your wine (as opposed to staying inside the whole time).

The setting and winery are absolutely stunning. The tour was brutal. Our tour guide, Jim, was awkward and unknowledgeable. My wife and I came away thinking how can this guy possibly have a job. His favorite topic was the parties hosted by the winery. The wine was terrific but tour was abominable. We felt cheated. Please evaluate Jim's tours.

The setting was beautiful but the tour guide/tour (cave tour) was odd. He stalled and had awkward silences as if he were trying to stretch out the tour to provide a full hour. There wasn’t a good flow to the tour and he kept mentioning the many parties they host there. Advise choosing one of the many other options.

The wine was great, the premises were beautiful in the fall, the cave was interesting, and the tour guide was very, very drunk. She kept rambling and forgetting what she was saying during the tour. She was noticeably slurring her words. She promised two pours when we returned to the main house, which she forgot about. Overall, we still had fun, but the tour guide was incredibly unprofessional.

She carried wine with her so that we could continue the tasting while we moved from point to point. She took pictures of us and overall did a wonderful job. Back at the tasting room she treated us as family and did a superb job. I would return.

I did enjoy the scenery, the service and the wine. This is a great winery for people who are just learning about wines and people who are familiar. I am a bit spoiled with so many choices in Napa, so I didn't exactly think it was a 5 star. But there was nothing to complain about at all! I'm happy that I planned a visit with my friends.

We had an amazing experience with our host Aaron. He was very knowledgeable about each vintage we tasted. The private cave tour was a unique experience. We loved tasting wine from a barrel for the 1st time.

Grounds were beautiful. Wine expert who did our tasting talked very fast and a little mumbled.... didn't give a very personal feel. Disappointed there wasn't a view from the patio although we walked out onto the picnic area and did enjoy the view. Would have liked the option to do our tasting in the areas with a view without having to reserve a table or pay extra money.
