I did the Winemaker for a Day experience and I couldn't recommend it enough. Getting to make your own wine is such a neat idea, and they have the process so perfectly executed. I chose this event for a birthday present, and I can't imagine a more perfect way to spend my birthday. I will definitely be back to Raymond Vineyards!

Not your average winery!!! We took the Winemaker for a Day class and the experience was fantastic! Our host was knowledgeable and accommodating, and we left with a bottle of our own blend of wines! You can also experience tasting rooms that are very unusual—think mannequins hanging above your head or a Red Room. Great place to check out when in Napa Valley. They have goats and chickens too!

The person who greeted us directed us down the hall, not overly friendly. Our host in the Crystal Room was distracted and we did not feel that we got much information. We had a reservation and expected a more intimate experience. We did take our last pour outside and the gardens are very nice. We didn’t purchase any wine and wouldn’t go back. Overall, a disappointing experience.

I came on the wine train, & after learning more about the vineyard, I came back the next morning for the Red Room tasting. The entire experience was INCREDIBLE. It was extremely private. I loved that our host sat down with us. We could all talk, and it allowed me to really pay attention to and appreciate the wines. The wines were all very high end but the tasting was extremely affordable. LOVED IT

My daughter and I did the Blending Experience at Raymond. We were given four different red wines to taste and use to blend our own wine. We created three different blends and selected our favorite. Then we got to bottle it, cork it, and take it home. We could even order more bottles to ship. This was our favorite experience during our stay in Napa! We would highly recommend this experience!

A group of girlfriends and I went to Raymond. It was very out there and not Napa like. Which I think would be good if your into that type of thing. We were looking for more relaxing atmosphere. We had a tasting in the Cellar room, just super out there. Staff okay. I like more of the homey feel of other locations.

Myself, my fiance, and our two friends loved our experience at Raymond Vineyards doing the "Winemaker for the day" Our instructor was very pleasant to work with and made us feel right at home. She gave us excellent instructions and left us to our own devices to create our perfect blend. We loved that we can call anytime in the future and order more of our custom blend at any time in the future!
