The wine was good and Kyle did a great job. We did the bar tasting at the Atlas Peak location. We did not have enough time for the cave tour and had just been to an incredible cave at the previous winery. I didn’t feel the experience was a “personal” as I like. I prefer to be outside enjoying wine and the surrounding and learning about why the vineyard exists.

While an beautiful tasting room, this was our least favorite wine tasting experience EVER. The cave experience was decidedly unpleasant due to the noise of the other 3 or 4 tours going on at the same time. The man leading the tasting gave only the most basic details. And we ended up with our group of about 10 people huddled around a small table where we had to stand to taste bites. Thumbs down

Our tour party was small, so our tasting was customized slightly to address each person's favorite wine type, which we all appreciated. We tasted an ample number of wines that made the $75 tour and tasting fee a solid deal. The guide also provided a lot of interesting detail about how different barrel types affect flavor. The tasting room and wine caves are so elegant and atmospheric.

This is a NOT TO BE MISSED vineyard during your trip to Napa Valley, California! The wines are the most amazing that we tasted on our whole holiday weekend visit. The kind and generous owner of the vineyard, Dave Del Dotto, spent over an hour with us telling us about his story of the development of the three vineyards. For all of us it was by far the best visit of any vineyard in our lifetime.

This was the worst experience of our entire time in Napa. Our server was rude, condescending, and spent the entire time looking past us to see who was behind us and who was coming in. She also went on to describe the wonderful food cooked by the chefs for the important people. Finally, she lied to our face about what we said to her as we entered the facility. She lost you sales.

We loved this place, hosts are very attentive, the place is very lovely and extremely well kept. Then comes the wines. The selection is delicious. We are very picky and did not want to spend much on overpriced wines but we had two wines to taste that we could not pass on and we bought a case. While we did not visit many places in the valley, this one got our vote of confidence. It is lovely.
