Everything about our experience was wonderful; from being greeted by smiling faces and gorgeous gardens, to the tour, delicious wines, beautiful charcuterie platter and the gift shop/deli. We felt VIP. My only disappointment is that our tour host spoke so quickly that she was stumbling over her words and it was hard to take in everything she was saying. We would highly recommend V.Sattui to anyone

The wines were incredible, so much so we ended up getting a case and membership our first time there. The staff member assisting us with the tasting was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The deli had delicious items, as well. The grounds themselves were handsome, if a bit crowded (a good problem to have).

The tour and tasting at V. Sattui was very good. The grounds are lovely and hearing about the history of the winery was fascinating. It was extremely hot on the day that we were there, and perhaps, the tour of the actual vineyard should be nixed when the weather is hot. Our host was very friendly and young, and still working on his patter. The wines and food pairing were excellent.

While the tour was great there were several interruptions from other guest not apart of the tour. One guy was loudly talking in his phone while Jesus was explaining about the history. Another employee I believe was talking in the production room about how he could be a tour guide and talking loudly. This ruined the experience as I could not hear Jesus. NEED more stalls in restroom.

very disappointed with the overall experience. Yes the picnic area is very appealing on paper but in the end, the whole place lacks on many aspects and feels like Disneyland for wine. The drunk crowd, the low quality of wine, a guide who is almost impossible to understand... Again, a pretty place but a very disappointing experience overall.

Very crowded. Nice picnic area. Nice market. Tour was mediocre. Tour guide was hard to understand, talked way too fast and mumbled. Tasting was great. Would have been nice to get some crackers or bread with it. Or at least to give the guests a chance to purchase them at the time of the tasting. Tasting was outside on a very hot day. Would have been nice to have a mister or fan.

My overall experience at V.Sattui is great! Customer service, mostly friendly staff (except the guy doing cheese samples, he was rude and his attitude was very offputting). There is one other area of continued concern, that of which is the lack of adequate amount of women's restroom facilities. We started very early after the winery had just opened and the bathroom rinked of urine smell

They roll out the red carpet in a very friendly and approachable style. The leisure picnic grounds feel like an invitation to come for a day, stay for a lifetime.

I was a little apprehensive at first since there were already a lot of people here, but I had no trouble parking around midday and was able to get lunch in a timely fashion before the terrace tour. Our guide was very nice, and I enjoyed learning more about how wine is made, as well as having the opportunity to go to less crowded areas of the winery, and they gave me a veggie charcuterie board!

The views were beautiful. We learned a lot about the history of the family and process for making wine. Enjoyed walking through the various parts of the winery - grounds, vineyards, bottling area, and terrace. I would definitely recommend attending the 11a tours as more and more people crowd the grounds throughout the day taking away from the overall experience.

I thought the vineyard itself was beautiful. I participated in the wine tasting tour/terrace option and was disappointed with the tour guide and the professionalism of the tour itself. The staff was dressed poorly and did not give off the feel that they worked at a winery. On the tour, the tour guide was boring to listen to and the staff kept walking in front of us while we were listening.

Some of Sattui's wines are very tasty and their Madeira is special. The overall experience was nice, although not as private as we had in some smaller wineries.

It was not posible to do the wine tasting, because there was a lot of people at the migratory police from the San Francisco Airport. We try to make contact with the winery to change the tasting, twice, but it was not posible, because the person who answered us said that there was no good comunication, so we lost our money and experience.
