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.

This is my first visit with any winery and the experience was fabulous. Are Hostess was Virginia and she did an awesome job explaining the process of winemaking and how wine and food are paired together to gain the best culinary experience. I would highly recommend your Winery to friends and family.

I was a little apprehensive at first since there were already a lot of people here, but I had no trouble parking around midday and was able to get lunch in a timely fashion before the terrace tour. Our guide was very nice, and I enjoyed learning more about how wine is made, as well as having the opportunity to go to less crowded areas of the winery, and they gave me a veggie charcuterie board!

Thank you so much for a wonderful experience of Terrace Tasting. We are waiting most impatiently for the delivery of wine from you. Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Chardonnay we tried were amazing and we ordered all three. Additional thank you to our knowledgeable tasting guide, Jesus. We will most surely be back to enjoy your beautiful winery.

The views were beautiful. We learned a lot about the history of the family and process for making wine. Enjoyed walking through the various parts of the winery - grounds, vineyards, bottling area, and terrace. I would definitely recommend attending the 11a tours as more and more people crowd the grounds throughout the day taking away from the overall experience.

I thought the vineyard itself was beautiful. I participated in the wine tasting tour/terrace option and was disappointed with the tour guide and the professionalism of the tour itself. The staff was dressed poorly and did not give off the feel that they worked at a winery. On the tour, the tour guide was boring to listen to and the staff kept walking in front of us while we were listening.

The tour was very nice and Jose was a kind host. At times it was a bit difficult to understand him, but he answered all of pur questions. Some of Sattui's wines are very tasty and their Madeira is special. The overall experience was nice, although not as private as we had in some smaller wineries. I would reccomend this winery yo my friends.

We had an incredible guide who gave us an in-depth tour across the winery, allowed us to take as much time as we wanted to watch or take pictures, and even offered to take group pictures for us at various stops along the way. When it came to the tasting, he was incredible helpful in answering all of our questions and pouring us wines that were catered to our individual likes.

It was not posible to do the wine tasting, because there was a lot of people at the migratory police from the San Francisco Airport. We try to make contact with the winery to change the tasting, twice, but it was not posible, because the person who answered us said that there was no good comunication, so we lost our money and experience.

Opted for the tower tasting and so glad I did. Quiet and relaxing. Great conversation. And didn't feel rushed. After our tasting we went to the deli and it was a madhouse compared to the tower tasting. We purchased a bottle of Gamay Rouge (de-lish) and also a variety of cheeses, some bread, salad and fruit. I wanted to get some meats too but disappointed that there was no turkey/chicken options.

The ambiance was very appealing but compared to other wineries, it seemed like there was overcrowding throughout the property. While it is a very popular winery, times and space were not well regulated. I do not suggest eating anything other than a simple sand which from the market; I came in contact with a stomach virus later that night after eating 2 crab cakes.

I made an online reservation for V Sattui for 6 adults. A couple days later I found out about the 2 for 1 deal on yelp. We decided to ask the gentleman who checked us in on the day of the reservation, he said "no issues just call V Sattui later and get the refund." I just called V Sattui and they said " we wont be able to honor the 2 for 1 deal that was promised to you." Disappointing.

Worst winery/restaurant/facility with the worst bathrooms ever! Biarderling trailer park bathrooms in appearance, cleanliness, space and accessibility. For such a beautiful winery and setting, I’ve been to dive bars with better facilities. What an embarrassment. The lines waiting for tastings and food was so disappointing organized. Just a room full of noise and confusion. 45 to get order in
