The tasting room is dated, cluttered, and not appealing. There is a noisy old cooler/refrigerator in the corner that turns off and on and grinds. Other than that, no music or visual interest at all. The staff is knowledgeable, but seemed less than excited to have guests. While the wine is good, I would not recommend Clos du Bois to anyone for a tasting or winery experience.

Marlstone Experience on 6/20/18 12:30 PM

We were greeted immediately and told we were expected for our specialty tasting before we even identified ourselves. A table was set up for us and we quickly went on to our tasting which was a Marlstone blending experience. The host was highly knowledgeable and courteous, and made the experience fun for us! Highly recommended.

Bought the MARLESTONE Experience Tour for my husband for Christmas. It is one of our Favorites. Sarah was our "Guide", she was warm and down to earth! Extremely educated about our local vineyards and grapes that create the magic potion we call wine! It was intimate and personal. Experiences definitely have to do with the person teaching you. A+++ for Sarah! Thank you!

The tour and tasting were informative. We were able to see the grapes going through processing which was unique to what we have seen at other wineries. It was also a pleasure tasting from the barrels to understand the difference in aging and barrel toasting. Very enjoyable.

While we really enjoyed this experience, we spent more time outside discussing & learning about the history of this winery than we would have liked, we would have preferred to spend more of the allotted time experiencing & learning about the varietals when we concocted our own Marlstone recipe

George Sachs, the associate that guided us through our wine tasting was wonderful. He was very knowledgeable in EVERY single step, with every wine. Clos du Bois is our every day wine (No; seriously, we drink a bottle every evening - cardiologist orders LOL). After getting to visit the actual winery, we are Clos du Bois "lifers". The best wine you can purchase in the different price points.

We had a decent tasting as it was first thing in AM the ambiance was not. We spent $200 on various bottles to be shipped, & because I wanted to take one bottle with me, at end of transaction almost as an after-thought the tasting room manager charged us 10 cents for a bag that we were taking the single bottle in. No other tasting rooms in Napa, Sonoma or Mendicino charged us for bags. FELT CHEEP!

The winery baristas flat out told us that they do not care about visitor traffic because they sell so much wine via distribution. They were rude and completely ignored us for the first 10 minutes we were there. When we asked "What makes Clos du Bois wine special/different from the other wines?" They said they had no idea!!

Our tasting at Clos du Bois was a great experience. George presented our wines and he was a wealth of knowledge not only in regards to Clos du Bois wines but to the whole region and he explained in depth how the different regions affect the wines. George even helped us plan the rest of our visit in the area since this was our first time here.

The tasting room is a tasting bar. My server was extremely knowledgeable (WSET graduate I believe) who explained everything about the wines I was tasting. In terms of wine, I am aware they are widely distributed but their reserves only available at the winery is superb. The quality is high & more importantly, consistent. So much so, I only joined their wine club despite visiting 32 other wineries.
