I have been there twice now so far, and will continue to bring friends and family again and again, for one of the best tasting experiences ever! Paul and Co. are incredibly knowledgeable about their product, and the distillery industry as a whole. I learn new things every time I attend one of Paul's tastings. A beautiful environment and FUN way to spend an afternoon. Join the Club!!!!

I have done three tastings and love to bring new guests. Had Paul the first visit and was sold. 10 out of 10. Had another gregarious host the second visit and it was a 7 out of ten. This third visit was a 2 out 10. Nice young man but not the right passion. He had the script down but no sense of passion for his work or the people he was serving. I know now to call ahead to know the host before book

Had it not been for the customer service I would have lowered the stars to 3. But because of the customer service I raised it up. The tasting of most of the liquors they had were lacking a truly good quality taste. I found myself only really liking 2 of the liquors I was served. I wish they let people make selections on the types of liquor they want to sample.

We are members and have enjoyed every visit at both the Distillery and the Oxbow. The service is always hospitable! We bring friends to taste or come on our own to enjoy the atmosphere and excellent spirits. Had a birthday party at our home and shared the spirits and the "booze yoga". It was enjoyed by all!!

Who knew you were not supposed to swirl bourbon in a glass like you do wine. Overall it was a very pleasant experience in Napa!

Way funky cool! Been to some of the big boys, Bushmills, Woodford Reserve, etc. this was really intimate (being the only one on the tour, mid-week, I'm sure helped). Theodore was spot-on as the presenter. Great discussion and explanation the the process and products. Extremely Recommended! A "Don't Miss" in my book.

Theodore was very informative and entertaining. My husband and I were about 10 minutes late so after the distillery tasting another person gladly took us around the spirit making process. Also the receptionist allowed my sister to put her Ghirardelli Chocolates into the office so they would not melt. Highly recommend this tour, but do not come on a empty stomach. Thank you, Janet Mehmel

They even arranged a limo ride back downtown at the conclusion of our tour and tasting. On top of all that their boutique spirits were top notch and wish I had bought more.

Our guide really know his stuff and obviously really enjoyed working there. It was nice being on a tour where we could ask questions and get really in depth answers. He took his time explaining everything and getting into side conversations about the processes. Then the tasting room! It was so well designed to have a modern twist on a speakeasy. All the spirits we tasted were really good!!

We just did a tour and tasting at Napa Valley Distillery, and it was such a fun way to spend an hour+ in Napa. It's super informative, & the tasting time is amazing whether you think you're a "spirits" fan or not. Honestly, booze has never tasted this good! The facility is beautiful with an art deco feel to the bar, the folks are friendly & really know their craft. Take a break from wine & GO!!

My husband and I had the best time doing a spirits tasting! It was really fun and educational (who knew that you could actually SIP spirits straight and enjoy them?!) and everything we tried was DELICIOUS. We ended up purchasing a bar club membership because we loved our time there so much and didn't want to go without. We're looking forward to recreating our experience there from our own home!
