It is a stunning, must-see Napa Valley destination for picnics, weddings and events, offering an impressively robust Cheese Shop with more than 200 selections. Executive Chef Gerardo Sainato and his staff create mouthwatering salads, sandwiches, paninis, and entrees in the Deli. V. Sattui also makes house-cured meats from its own Salumeria, and gelato and sorbetto from its own Gelateria. The sprawling estate includes two-dozen picnic tables nestled beneath ancient Valley Oak trees and tri-level terraces that overlook beautifully manicured gardens and vineyards.

V. Sattui Director of Winemaking, Brooks Painter, has been recognized as “Winemaker of the Year” in 2015 by the American Fine Wine Competition. He was previously awarded “Winemaker of the Year” at the San Francisco International Wine Competition in June of 2013. In 2015 V. Sattui was named “Winery of the Year” for the fourth year in a row at the Winemaker’s Challenge, and received the title a second time in the Critic’s Challenge International Wine Competition. In addition, V. Sattui has earned the title of “Wine of the Year” in 2015 for two wines: 2012 Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon at the Monterey Wine Competition, and 2011 Paradiso at the Critic’s Challenge International Wine Competition.

V. Sattui wines are sustainably farmed (some from its own organic vineyard) and are sold exclusively from the winery, direct to consumer. V.

Tour quit boring. No cellars. Tour guide was constant giggling. Terrace and gardens very beautiful. The last wine of the tasting experience was very corky. Something was definitely wrong with the wine, which can happen sometimes. However, the lady told us it was not corky but that it was the ‘terroir’ taste. Seriously... I know the difference

Wonderful experience. Everything was beautiful. Angela led our tour and was so knowledgeable and you could tell she loved working for V. Sattui. I would highly recommend this tour. We visited several others while in Napa region, and while nice, didn’t compare to V. Sattui. Also, their wine is phenomenal! Bought a case plus 2 bottles??

Enjoyed the tour and getting to walk around the Vineyard and the view from the patio was great but the wines were mediocre. We were told the zinfandel we were trying wasn't really everybody's favorite so I felt like they should have wanted to give us wines that would make us want to stay and try more. Also, there was only one person serving wine. Took an hour to get 5 sample pours.

Far too crowded compared to all of the other wineries we visited. Wine was okay (though the port is a specialty worth stopping and trying) but they did a good job with the cheese pairing. They needed to book at least 50% less people to make it a good experience.

Just a little disappointing that we arrived for a private tasting and had to share our hostess with 2 other groups. We really didn’t get to even finish all 5 tastings before the hour was up and we had to be at a lunch reservation. I feel as though if I’m paying for a private tasting that hostess should be dedicated to my entire party of 6. Instead we had to share with 6 others.

I am not writing a good review because I was not able to make the reservation I booked due to unforeseen events. I understand they have a booking policy, but the reservation had to be canceled for 2 of the 4 members. I was asking for a refund for only the 2 guests that could not make it and they were not understanding of the situation. The other 2 guests still went. I find this a bit harsh.

Everything about our experience was wonderful; from being greeted by smiling faces and gorgeous gardens, to the tour, delicious wines, beautiful charcuterie platter and the gift shop/deli. We felt VIP. My only disappointment is that our tour host spoke so quickly that she was stumbling over her words and it was hard to take in everything she was saying. We would highly recommend V.Sattui to anyone

The tour and tasting at V. Sattui was very good. The grounds are lovely and hearing about the history of the winery was fascinating. It was extremely hot on the day that we were there, and perhaps, the tour of the actual vineyard should be nixed when the weather is hot. Our host was very friendly and young, and still working on his patter. The wines and food pairing were excellent.

While the tour was great there were several interruptions from other guest not apart of the tour. One guy was loudly talking in his phone while Jesus was explaining about the history. Another employee I believe was talking in the production room about how he could be a tour guide and talking loudly. This ruined the experience as I could not hear Jesus. NEED more stalls in restroom.

very disappointed with the overall experience. Yes the picnic area is very appealing on paper but in the end, the whole place lacks on many aspects and feels like Disneyland for wine. The drunk crowd, the low quality of wine, a guide who is almost impossible to understand... Again, a pretty place but a very disappointing experience overall.

Would have been nice to get some crackers or bread with it. Or at least to give the guests a chance to purchase them at the time of the tasting. Tasting was outside on a very hot day.

My overall experience at V.Sattui is great! Customer service, mostly friendly staff (except the guy doing cheese samples, he was rude and his attitude was very offputting). There is one other area of continued concern, that of which is the lack of adequate amount of women's restroom facilities. We started very early after the winery had just opened and the bathroom rinked of urine smell
