Ricardo our guide was extremely knowledgeable and made the overall experience superb. Group tour and tasting experience was outstanding and perfect for the less sophisticated wine drinker like me. Scenery was amazing. A bit challenging perhaps for elderly groups who may have a bit of trouble walking up and down stairs. Will definitely be back!

Very friendly people start to finish. It was noticeable and appreciated. I have already started to recommend you to friends.

We tasted the amazingly approachable new 2016 release in an all glass tasting room at the top of a hill with sweeping, panoramic views of the valley. Exquisite wine with an unmatched view! Our guide, Mike, was incredibly knowledgeable and put together mind blowing vertical tasting for our group. A must visit anytime you are in Napa!

When I think of my experience, I'm immediately brought back to the ATV ride through the winery/rolling hills. It was invigorating to see the vineyards and greenery while on the move. Additionally, the stone wall built into the winery set it apart from the other wineries we visited, and provided a castle-like feel. The actual tasting felt intimate, relaxed, and private which was appreciated.

Quintessa was by far the nicest vineyard we visited. I am so glad that we got the private tour and it was an unbelievable experience. The tasting room up on the hill was stunning. And the tour through the winery showing us the magic of how you make wine was lovely. We loved our host. He was so pleasant, informative and passionate. Thank you! We are glad to now be members!

My family and I had a tasting at Quintessa. We signed up for the Quintessential Experience and it was a nice quick tour first(which was perfect since we had an extensive tour about winemaking and wineries the previous day) and then a ride up to the pavilion with a breathtaking view of the entire vineyard in full bloom. Tasting wine from the pavilion was definitely the highlight - worth the price.

Don’t miss this one. One of the best wine experiences of the trip. Mike, our tour guide, gave us one of the best tours of the winery and the underground caves. We then went into the vineyards via Polaris ATV. At the top of a hill, overlooking the vineyards, was a glass pavilion where the tasting took place. Spectacular view and wines were exceptional!!!

Our hopes were high based on the $85 tasting and reputation, which we thought would blow us away. It didn't. We're experienced Napa wine lovers, so at that price, it should've delivered more, we quickly saw that this may not be what was as expected. Entry, bathrooms are dated and no ambience. Light the fireplace, please! Desiree was very welcoming and was a delight through the entire experience.

We had plenty to drink and while this may be on the pricier side for a tasting - to use the cliche - you do get what you pay for. I will return on my next visit to the area.

The grounds were beautiful. We loved hiking up to the top of the hill to look at the vineyards and beautiful scenery, and then transitioning to underground where we saw how the wine was being made. We loved experiencing the outdoor and indoor elements. Topped off with the wine tasting inside the beautiful private room. The wine is exquisite, as it is one of our favorites.
