Our quaint Napa Valley tasting room and art gallery are just up the street from the famed The French Laundry in the village of Yountville. Winemaker Rob Lloyd is passionate about the ‘Art of the Blend’, crafting five distinct cuvées, ‘Table for Four’, ‘Juel’, ‘Manny’s Blend’, ‘Graziella’, and ‘Rougette’. Rob also blends varietal wines from select vineyards throughout the Napa Valley to create deeper complexity. These wines include Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Petite Sirah to name a few.

Available by appointment, guests may relax and taste Jessup Cellars wines paired with artisan cheeses from Atelier by JCB in our spacious gallery amongst curated art, which features rotating exhibitions by celebrated regional and national artists. Our gallery also hosts ongoing cultural event series and is available for private events.

Over the past several years, Jessup Cellars has won numerous awards including CellarPass’ ‘Friendliest & Most Knowledgeable Staff’ two years in a row, Napa Valley Life magazine’s ‘Best Wine Club’ and, recently, Yountville’s ‘Business of the Year’.

We had a wine and cheese pairing in the art gallery at the Jessup Cellars tasting room. The art was entertaining to look at while tasting the wine and eating cheese. We were in an area with two tasting tables surrounded by art but were the only two there. We tasted six wines pared with six cheeses.

Jessup has a beautiful tasting center in the heart of Yountville. The town itself is worth the trip; quaint, clean, shops, and lots of good restaurants. Carlos was the expert at Jessup that led us through the wines, and he couldn't have been more knowledgeable and friendly. We did the upgraded cheese tasting (got it 2-1 with the Priority Wine Pass) and it was a great experience. Very good wine!

Delicious cheeses, delicious wines. Matt was our host and he was awesome to hang out with. Very tempted to sign up for membership. Maybe after we drop one of our other membership, we'll join the Jessup family. My only "complaint" (and I use the term loosely) is the lack of parking. We parked about a block away in a residential area.

Overpriced. Way overpriced. With some unexceptional wines and tiny pieces of cheese. The person that took us through poured, said his little shtick and then disappeared for 10 minutes in between each wine so that he could go out in the lobby and help sell to other people. Treated like second class citizens but with a smile. The smile doesn’t change the experience. It was ersatz from the start.

The tasting was one of the best! For the cost, it was the best value. Jessup paired 6 wines with different cheeses, nuts and chocolate and waived the $40 tasting fee if you purchased wine. It was so relaxed too, the person that walked us through the tasting was friendly, funny, laid back and very knowledgeable! My favorite wine was the Pinot noir. Love this place, will definitely return

We had such an outstanding experience at Jessup Cellars! Laurel did our tasting and she was great! She started out by giving us some information on the Valley, then she gave us a little "Wine Tasting 101". How to hold glasses, the best way to smell the wine, and how to get the best taste from the food pairings. Of course the wines were outstanding. I would recommend this experience to Anyone!

This was our last tasting on a 3-day visit to the Napa Valley - so we had a lot to compare it to. A friend had recommended Jessup Cellars to us and we decided to add it to our itinerary. It was actually difficult to get an appointment at the last minute, so I would highly recommend scheduling well in advance. All I can say is it was amazing - the experience and the wines! Highly recommend!!!!
