We went to this winery because it was listed as a top ten winery for St Helena. Our tour guide was inexperienced, wines are way overpriced; some as much as 4x what might be closer to what they are worth. Absolute waste of time & worst experience from any winery in the world! Wish we could have gotten our money back as soon as we arrived; knew it was just a tourist gimmick! Do not visit!

Cheryl's passion and knowledge for the wine industry really shows. I asked a lot of questions and they were all answered. We learned a lot! It wasn't what we saw but more what we learned plus the terrace is beautiful! Cheryl also stayed a lot longer than scheduled. She was there past 3:00pm, over 30 minutes after the scheduled tour. Thank you Cheryl! Best tour ever! Get the food pairing!

After visiting V. Sattui in January with my husband, I brought four of my friends for the Terrace Tasting as they were visiting from Philadelphia. This was an incredible experience, and our tour expert, Angela, was phenomenal. Her charm, knowledge and hospitality made the experience even better than the first. There is a depth to this winery and everything about it that makes it so special.

The wine tasting experience met our expectations; check out did not. The associate who hosted the wine tasting experience approved our shipment of three bottles (normal minimum is six bottles) and clearly marked our wine list as such. The cashier failed to read the notation and gave me a hard time about my purchase. Experience needs to be seamless end-to-end.

We were cheerfully welcomed upon arrival and our tour and tasting hostess was very knowledgeable and friendly. She listened intently to our questions and provided a pleasant educational experience. The charcuterie tray (dried meats, cheeses, and olives) was excellent during wine tasting. This is a must-visit winery when in Napa/St. Helena. While very busy, the atmosphere & wines are incredible!

My friends and I went to V. Sattui on a Saturday morning, and it wasn't crowded. The winery was absolutely beautiful. We took tons of pictures outside. We were about 10 minutes late for our tasting, but the staff did not mind at all. Our tasting was fun and informational, and the wine tasted AMAZING. We even got to taste one additional wine each for free. We will definitely come back!

The grounds and building are delightful, that is what drew us to the winery, plenty of sitting space(though this isn't peak season...so don't know if it will be then). Plenty of deli treats/cheeses, etc. Ed was our wine tasting steward and he was amazing!!!!! I actually returned later to get a bottle of wine just because of him..and I also liked the wine.

The place is really nice. However, we arrived 20 minutes late because had connectivity problems and lost the winery tour. No problem with that. They told us that we could go directly to the tasting or talk with the manager, Rob. Rob wasn't at the place, so we take a tasting, but it was not with the wines of the tour that we expected (but with a more simple tasting).

Beautiful winery! Know that if you do the basic tasting, it is in their large public tasting room which can get very, very crowded. They do offer other tastings in more private rooms if that is something you are looking for. Wine was enjoyable. Also have a nice deli and cheese selection so you can have a picnic outside when the weather is nice!

For quality wine, skip this. They pride themselves in having a variety of wine, which means they aren't doing one thing well. Not to mention that there is an overwhelming number of people here. If you are wanting to picnic with your kids and everyone else's this is your place. Our tour guide, Abby, was delightful. She and the cheese & crackers were the only redeeming qualities.
