Our story begins with Gary and Kit’s cycling adventures through Italy where long days of cycling would end in leisurely evenings of good wine, food and hospitality.

Hi, The tasting bar was beautiful with comfortable leather stools. We were served delightful chocolates/nuts along with our first pour for tasting. The lighting was amber and very warm and inviting. Each varietal was described along with soil information, the weather of the harvest year and a tasting description. We were not rushed and felt it was a real treat and fulfilling experience.

This is my new favorite tasting experience in Napa Valley. We moved to Napa in 2013 and have been up and down and across the Valley. We visited Clif Family about a week ago - and have already been back to taste a second time, this time with out-of-state friends. The wines - very good. The setting is so comfortable. The food truck is ridiculously good. And the people are great and knowledgeable.

The bruschetta and wine pairing was excellent; the memorabilia was entertaining and inspiring. Well worth a drive to visit, and maybe Fred's tale will inspire you to seek out some new adventures, on a bike or off it.

We opted for the tasting along with lunch and it was absolutely wonderful. The portion sizes for the lunch were large and so tasty that it was difficult to stop eating, which made it difficult to eat the dessert – but we did succumb and ate most of the dessert. The wines we tasted were very good and I would definitely recommend this to others.

We visited Clif tasting room over the weekend and we were underwhelmed. After visiting Duckhorn, Summers, Del Dotto and several others where the guides are super experienced, our experience was a little lack luster. We also sat inside which seemed to kill our mood after sitting outdoors at our last tasting. Although everyone was friendly, the vibe is less vineyard.
