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.

The vineyard was beautiful and the tasting room was intimate. Our hostess was friendly, lovely, and very knowledgeable. We enjoyed our time there. The only comment that I have is confirm whether or not they indeed take reservations. I thought they did, but there were several walk-ins while we were there.

We love PlumpJack wines unfortunately the experience at the winery definitely disappointed. The gentleman running our tasting was not a good reflection of the winery and wines. Disappointed as we love PlumpJack.

The winery tasting area is comfortable and is set at the edge of the vineyards. We had a total of 6 tastings, 2 from the winery and 4 from sister wineries. That was a plus but I would have preferred more of the “home” wines. The hostess was knowledgeable but seemed distracted having to pour for the bar guests as well as us. Compared to other wineries, the quality of the wine spoke for itself

PlumpJack is obviously a well-known winery in the Valley, but I just felt like a number during our tasting experience. Our host was very nice and engaging when prompted. There was a rowdy table of older patrons behind us and their exuberance negatively impacted our experience. Overall, I think there are better value experiences in the valley where you won’t feel like a number.

Expecting the big red, we were surprised at how much we loved the Chardonnay, and how finessed it was. All six in our party felt the Plumpjack Cabernet was the best cab of our two-day, 10-winery trip. Great stuff!

We had the premiere wine tasting on the patio. The hilltop was apparently infested with bees. Our wine expert Lyndsey was amazing, knowledgeable and made us feel very special. We had an amazing time on the patio and Lyndsay definitely contributed to that. Beautiful property and amazing wine. We loved the 2008 estate cab and drank a bottle on the patio. So much fun.

We sat outside and it was both picturesque and peaceful. The wine was so delicious and Taylor was the perfect hostess. The lookout area was beautiful and a perfect background for some great pictures complimented with yummy wine. And I finally found the Napa Cats book here to add to my NAPA Dogs collection. Great souvenir!

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.
