Discover why PlumpJack Winery’s selections have earned the reputation for full-bodied richness, aromatics and ripeness from the toughest critics.

Read More

In 1995, Gavin Newsom and Gordon Getty stumbled upon a magical piece of land in the heart of Oakville, Napa Valley. Inspired by one of Shakespeare’s most memorable characters, Sir John “PlumpJack” Falstaff, who’s fun-loving, down-to-earth disposition is only rivaled by his fierce loyalty to Prince Henry V, with whom he shares more than a few goblets of sack (wine) at the local tavern. We pay allegiance to our world-class vineyard by crafting high-quality wines that honor the land, and we celebrate the convivial spirit of our namesake with their inviting, approachable style.

I was expecting more. When I made the reservations Cellarpass indicated there were two seatings available 10:00 and 11:00 (a bit later would have been more desirable. When we arrived the place was empty except for a group sitting at the bar. They seated us inside next two the bar (not a Courtyard/Patio). It was a cool morning but, outside seating near a heater or fireplace would have been nice

Plumpjack was recommended to us by good friends but just didn't care that much for our experience. It was our second tasting of the day, and were aware of the tasting fees (regardless of wine purchase) so that didn't really deter from the tasting for us. We found the staff friendly but almost robotic in the explanations of the wines. Wines were good but ultimately didn't purchase anything.

we entered and showed the hostess and host our cellar pass on my phone. They laughed, and said, I guess you've been burned somewhere before. So we laughed then too and put the phone away. We had a very nice time and enjoyed the wines. Then when it was time to pay, I pulled up the cellar pass again and handed it to the host. He proceeded to delete it, to not honor the cellar pass

Plumpjack was a good experience but compared to others we had in Napa/Sonoma, it fell a little short. For starters they were out of many of their estate wines. The alternatives were excellent, but a heads up when we made the reservation would have been nice. Also, it is ONLY place we visited that didn't offer a discount on the tasting when we purchased pricey bottles.

We were a bit nervous about the service after reading a bunch of Yelp reviews but are happy to report Ryan took great care of us. The wine is amazing but the tasting fee is a bit steep for the amount of pour you get. I wish there was some break in the tasting fee price if a bottle of wine is purchased. I like that Plumpjack requires reservations because it was very quiet and calm.

This is a fun visit as it is somewhat rustic and you have the option to sit outside or inside. We sat outside and they were crushing Chardonnay grapes right behind us. We even got a glass of the raw grape juice to taste which was pretty good and an interesting way to learn a little about the wine process first hand. Plumpjack is amazing wine and the people were nice.

We had a fabulous time at Plumpjack. It was by far the best out of all the wineries we visited. Lindsay was fantastic. She’s very knowledgeable about the wines and the process and gave us fun facts as well which made it very interesting. We loved the ambiance of the outdoor patio and the grounds as well. We’ve already recommended to multiple people to go there!

We had an okay time. Loved the venue and our service person was okay, I guess. Knowledgeable, but seemed a little disinterested. Perhaps he was spread too thin - we wondered if we were forgotten about a couple of times. In his defense, it was a little busy, but as I tell my salesmen: You can't fix it if you don't know it is broken. Best, Greg Young
