I love Raymond wines, and the place is SO cool. But, I would've preferred to have my tasting not at the bar. The gentleman who served us was excellent - great personality and lots of good wine knowledge - it was the ambiance that I'd underrate. We walked around after, and there's so much coolness going on. Wish we would have tasted in one of the more intimate rooms. Really enjoyed the wines.

Raymond Vineyards is kitschy and fun! Definitely a unique, glittery, sparkling gem compared to the other traditional brick, mortar, and cobblestone wineries in Napa! The Winemaker Experience is a must for everyone...a terrific combination of wine history, education, tasting, blending, and creating your own masterpiece vintage to take home with you!

Not sure why I need d a reservation to taste wine there. There was nothing special about the experience. The lady working the front desk was rude and the guy serving the wine was rude. The amounts that were poured were very small. The employees had no character and lacked customer service. I won't be back!

Barrel Tasting on 10/29/15 12:30 PM

We booked a "barrel tasting" here online. After hours of researching, we choose Raymond for the experience -- selecting this winery over many others. When we arrived, it was very disorganized and seemed as if they did not have anyone to take us on the experience. We were shipped off to the crystal room and were Lumped with several other couples. Quite disappointing as this is what I wanted to surprise my boyfriend with for his birthday. When we went back to the front to share our displeasure the woman who greeted us when we arrived was not there and no one knew what we were talking about.

Although the decor at Raymond Vineyards did not appeal to my particular style, it did definitely stand out as a unique place to visit. The Crystal Room looked more like an S&M-themed night club than a winery. But the staff was incredible, and the wine was by far my favorite wine that I tasted out of all the wineries we visited in Napa. I joined their wine club and look forward to more tastings!

She led us through a thorough tasting of Raymond's line of wonderful wines. It was informational, educational and fun. I highly recommend this experience to the novice thru the expert.

Here's some bullet points: - I only got the standard tasting (it was only $25 I think). You get to taste 5 wines, which I thought were pretty good -The staff is a little strange, as is the venue. -When I go wine tasting, I just want to get a good hook up if it's not busy. By that I mean I want the staff to give me an extra taste of something. Engage me a little with your wine. This staff did not

Really interesting, from the various displays outside/farm, the methods used, the various different tasting rooms. The wines were good, the hosts friendly, but the atmosphere in the stainless steel/ crystal room was a bit over the top for me. The downer was the emphasis on jean-Charles. The bath room was a hoot, The experience changed from a wine tasting to an ego feed of the new owner.

Our party of four had such a wonderful experience at Raymond Vineyards Winemaker for a Day, In fact, I did not realize until later in the week after visiting a number of wineries just how valuable the experience was. My wine knowledge is limited so the blending and tasting at Raymond helped me to better understand what the winery reps were explaining and to look for many layers when tasting.

Overall, not impressed with the quality of the wine. I think this vineyard is catering to an upscale, modernized type of clientele. Any type of person was welcomed with great service, education and back ground of the vineyard owner, and most specifically details of each type of wine, however, I felt this place tried to push their wine club membership way to much and the wine was sub-par.

There were a lot of very intoxicated young people, falling over each other, and taking crude pictures by the frames. The Crystal Experience, touted as a very elegant tasting, was anything but.

We did the barrel tasting with Will and had a blast. It was just the two of us so it was like a private tour! Will showed us all the different tasting rooms before taking us back to where they keep some of the barrels. While many of the wines in the barrels are not really ready for drinking (and were quite 'bitter') it was neat to then taste those same wines after refining!

The room (and the adjoining rooms) are by and large a total distraction. The difference between the external and internal is simply so breathtaking that you wonder if you should even stay. If you can get past the videos of the owner living his James Bond fantasy and the "burlesque" its is worth a visit. The wine is OK; you just have to dig to find the good ones.

Raymond was a fabulous winery experience. From the beautiful gardens to the unique tasting rooms, we never stopped smiling during our journey throughout the winery. Our private tour provided by Damien was just simply informative, and entertaining. We scheduled our special event requests with Denise a week or so in advance and she made sure everything was in place for our visit. Highly reccomend.

We had a time set for our tasting at 10am. We were a bit late -- perhaps 10:10am. Tasting room door was locked. Someone unlocked it after we turned away. Turned around and went in. Were greeted but the focus was obviously on the 007 crystal gala that evening. Went to the main salon to do the one of the two tastings describe only to find that it had been pulled. So, we left not to return.

Our hostess had a difficult time answering questions about the wine and barrel tasting process (what to look for, how to distinguish quality wine from the barrel, etc.). She was also quick to point out that she was a sommelier, which made her apparent incompetence more laughable. Decent wines, but need a different person running the show next time.

The only thing that made it a bad experience was the staff in the tasting room were busy talking to other people and would just pour our wine and live and we would be there waiting awhile for the next taste. The wines were not that great either.

First impression was empty winery and a bus full of international tourists being loud and smoking on the parking lot. The property around the main building is more like a farm than a winery, with roosters and chickens. That was not what we came to Napa for, so we left without tasting any wine. Oh yeah, and when we were leaving, another bus of tourists came in. People working there are nice though.

I went with a group of 4 other friends and we had a great time. It was actually a little stressful choosing your favorite blend and the time went by quickly. But the overall experience was a lot of fun. I would recommend it to my friends.

After making what I assumed was a tasting/tour we were subjected to a rather mundane tasting in the (crystal?) room no tour alas. Either I was Ina hurry due to the number of people recommending a reservation during crush or the reservation site is misleading.

In my opinion the internet pictures are misleading and not what we paid for. We paid for a Crystal Cellar experience @ $30 pp which I thought was a sit-down experience as shown in the picture on the internet. The wine was fabulous but we were escorted to STAND at a private bar in the Crystal room. Not the experience we thought we had paid for! Save your money with a regular drop-in bar tasting.

Everything was awesome, the elderly gentleman serving our tastings at the main tasting bar was very polite and informative, he made for a very enjoyable experience. After our tasting we walked around to explore and the second we opened the door to the "red room" some lady working that tasting room very rudely yelled at us, which immediately ruined our awesome experience.

The winery was very beautiful and the wine was decent. Nothing really knocked our socks off. We were impressed by the unique decor and the very chic style, however, their was no real history or learning in terms of the wines or the process in which they were made. It was more like enjoying a glass of wine at a boutique hotel verse going to an upscale winery in Napa.

Have enjoyed plenty of Raymond wines but the tasting was lacking effort. The server sounded like she was reading from a script. I could have offered up a better description. We took some fabulous pictures but of all the wineries our party of 10 visited in 4 days, this was the only one in which we didn't leave with a single case:(

The staff made it easy to ask questions and were very knowledgeable. The experience surpassed my expectations and I would definately come back again.

Raymond was one if the most unique and beautiful winery we've visited anywhere in the world. It's modern and clean. We went at 10am when they first opened and all staff were so busy getting ready for the day the they hardly noticed we were there. We booked the cellar tour and it was great. The barrel sample was of the 2010 vintage. Overall great experience but wish we could've seen more.

It was definitely a unique experience. We did a tasting in the red room, which was very different. The young man who did the tasting was very friendly and did a nice job. Tastings were on the pricey side ($30), but we were able to get a two-for-one deal, which made it affordable, and the wines were all excellent.
