They have changed their format, increased price and the blending is with 2016 wines which are too young to have flavor and character. A waste of time and money. Very disappointed.

If you like to get hands on and want to see if you have what it takes to be a winemaker then the Blend Experience is for you. Or - if you are competitive you may want to do this with your group and then do a blind tasting to see which blend the group likes best. Our bottles will be coming out of the cellar over the winter for a blind tasting.

We had a great time at the Conn Creek blending experience. Our only complaint was that we did feel a bit rushed to finish our bottling. 4 of the people in our experience we late so she started over and maybe that's why they rushed us out. But we didn't know those people so really shouldn't have been penalized for that. Otherwise it was fun.

Great way to understand how soil composition from one end of the valley affects the flavor of the grapes used to make a certain soft or more bold end wine. Lots of fun to blend and name a single bottle to take home. Definitely worth your time to book a barrel blending experience.

This was a really fun, unique experience and our host did a great job. I had read that it was two hours whereas ours finished in just over an hour. Perhaps this is the new format we were told about but that seemed pretty quick for the price. Also adding just a bit of food would be a nice touch...perhaps a few local products that pair well with wine at the end.

They made it as simple as possible, while still offering a variety of blending options, and ensuring we didn't go wrong. We can't wait to try the bottles we brought home. They tasted lovely at the Blending! I would do it again, and recommend it to all my wine loving friends.

We really enjoyed it. The only issue is that there is so much (good) information that you really have to get and let sink in to know what you are doing when it comes time for blending, but our host has a very fast speaking voice. He was knowledgeable but sometimes he just spoke so rapidly it was hard to let things sink in. Other than that, he was great.

This experience ins unique in Napa Valley--you get to taste single vineyard cabs, learns about the AVAs in Napa, and blend your own wine. You even get to bottle it, make your won label, and take it with you. Amazing experience!
