About Goosecross Cellars

A family owned and operated winery in Yountville. While we are very proud of the different wines we make, our primary focus will be on you our customer and your experience, since for us friendship is why we're in the wine business.

Goosecross® invites you to join our family and experience all the road less traveled has to offer. We produce only 8,000 cases each year, and our winemaker Bill Nancarrow focuses all of his time and energy on growing grapes and guiding their transformation into great wine. Bill crafts our wines to show true varietal character by staying focused on the basics – sustainable farming with attention, care, and diligence in the cellar. At Goosecross we took a different path – a path that supports our perspective that producing great wine is not enough and our deep commitment to hospitality, service and connecting with people is tantamount to our mutual success with customers.

A visit to Goosecross® provides an authentic, working family winery experience. We're known as much for our laid-back atmosphere and hospitality as we are for sustainable farming and dedication to making seriously great wines. We offer a rustic, off the beaten path retreat for wine tasting. You can taste in our barrel cellar, bond with the friendly staff, wander the vineyard, relax on the scenic patio, and witness production. Since 100% of our wines are sold consumer-direct, the winery is the only place to find them.

Get access to Goosecross 24/7 while on the go with responsive web technology for your mobile devices. Our goal is to make our visitor experience here positive and accessible.

I first came across Goosecross by reading reviews on Yelp and Trip Advisor. At one point, this was a small-scale, family-oriented operation, where the owner administered tastings from a trailer while the tasting room was under-construction. The tasting room is now complete, but frankly, this place has lost a lot of its charm. The sales people were pushy, and unhelpful.

First impression at 3, we walked into a small portable building to a very cramped space. I introduced myself as the X time reservation. An individual in a loud voice said "don't worry about that" just come in and drink wine. I first thought she was a guest, later I find out she was a host - wasn't the most professional greeting. After that another host took care of us, he was fantastic.

Love this winery - we are members. But didn't get great service and a few of the new hosts were a little rude. We made reservations and yet were treated like we didn't. We got sat out in the back away from everyone and no one ever came to check on us. They were extremely busy that day - but it was a little disappointing because we had friends with us we were trying to impress. We still love you!

We loved the casual, relaxed atmosphere. We were prepared for the winding dirt road and the trailers but the weather, the hosts and the wine made this a great experience.

My review of Goosecross doesn't do it justice. Our first impression was seeing the construction trailer tasting room, which, what can I say, is not what we are looking forward to when we go wine tasting. But get over it! Once inside, PJ greeted us like a long-lost drinking buddy, poured healthy amounts of outstanding wines, showed us their new digs under construction, and had a great time!!!!

We had a great time at Goosecross Cellars! The wine was excellent and we received some tastings tailored to our personal preferences that were not on the original tasting menu. The winery is undergoing some construction, so tasting in a trailer might scare some people away, but we received excellent & friendly service, and were given some insight on what their winery will look like when complete.

We have been members of Goosecross Cellars for 12 years. Their wines are ALWAYS the greatest. They are going through a remodeling right now so temporarily the tasting room is in a trailer. BUT even with that inconvenience, the Staff made us real welcomed, spent time talking about the plans for the new winery and new wines they are planning. Can't wait to see it !!!

But, whatever they lacked in initial impression they made up for in personality and wine! Elizabeth was a energetic, knowledgeable, and welcoming host! Truly a breath of fresh air!

They were our last stop of the day, and even with it being late afternoon, they were incredibly welcoming and eager to make the most of our experience. The Viognier and Cabernet were especially great. Denise was our host, and she had an energetic personality and a fantastic sense of humor. A definite must in Napa.

We were asked to pay $20 each when we left, I thought we paid when we made the reservation since cellar pass wanted our credit card...confusing. No other guests arrived with a reservation, just walked in.

We are members and always experience wonderful service! They are very informative about their wines and are very attentive to their customers! It is a very intimate setting inside and beautiful grounds to sit outside.

We loved our visit to Goosecross, even joined their wine club. It is nice that the club allows you to choose your wines. It would help if your score marks above had an explanation. I'm not sure if I marked them correct, so in explanation: the vineyards were beautiful 5 out of 5, and the hospitality was great 5 out of 5. I would deduct only one mark on the ambiance.

We had a private tasting with Michael Andrews and it was fantastic. The experience and the wine was so good that we joined their wine club too! I would not hesitate to recommend Goosecross Cellars to any of our friends and business contacts too.

My husband and I visited Goosecross on our first trip to Napa. The hospitality was amazing and we learned a lot about the wine making process with casual conversation with employees.

It was a lovely day with our picnic on hand and great wine to taste. The gentleman that helped up was very nice, informative and fun to be around. I would definitely recommend this to my friends as I prefer the smaller, family owned wineries.

First and foremost you spelled my name WRONG!! ASCHENBRENER- Also the lady they greeted us did not smile was not pleasant at all!! But, Jose Garcia was the gentlemen who gave us the greatest experience with the wine presentation. He was exceptional!! If my friend and I were to come back it would be to meet with him again!! Thanks for the experience!

We have been long-time wine club members. We haven't been to the winery for any years (we live in te Midwest) and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
