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 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!

We had a tasting in the Cellar room, just super out there. Staff okay. I like more of the homey feel of other locations.
