Priest Ranch embodies the essence of Napa Valley, from the trailblazing mindset of its establishing pioneers to today’s spirit of epicurean and agricultural excellence. Inspired by adventurous pioneers like John Joshua Priest and others who’ve helped shape the Napa Valley we call home, Priest Ranch is dedicated to producing estate-farmed wines of uncommon quality and character.

We believe that all wines must stem from the land itself. Our winemaker and viticulturist, Craig Becker, draws on rich, diverse vineyard sources that feature a variety of elevations, exposures, soils and microclimates. With knowledge borne of deep experience, Craig takes a minimalist approach to winemaking, encouraging the highest expression of personality, intensity and distinction in each varietal we produce.

Honoring our Napa Valley heritage by cultivating wines with distinctive profiles that expressly link them to their estate source, Priest Ranch is committed to sharing a legacy that encompasses agricultural integrity, a forward-thinking mindset and an unswerving commitment to quality at the very highest level.

Very open, inviting and comfortable venue. The seating ranges from couches to chairs to high stools. We were greeted warmly and given our choice of seating. Started with a white to cleanse the palette and then the Bacon and Wine Tasting commenced. Our host was informative but gave us the space and time to enjoy at our leisure. Would definitely recommend as a unique way to try some nice reds.

The young gentleman, Jose, was our host and was very nice. He gave good descriptions of the brand, its sister brand, and was knowledgeable. The room is a nice tasting room in Yountville, very accessible (parking in the rear as well). They included a couple of wines off the menu. Wines were good to great, depending on palate and varietal. Overall, a very good find! Would definitely return!

We did the bacon tasting and it was a ton of fun. My favorite bacon was the honey walnut. The bacon flavors were a little overpowering of the wine so was hard to really taste the wine, but the bacon was delicious. :-)

Whole was disappointing. Read the SF Chronicle review so wanted to try. Environment is odd. Big screen tv with football? Really? Sat at a 2 top but wasn’t told that is where arrive! Wine was served in a weird order. Cabs are generally served last. Found all the wines to be thin. No real winners.

We opted for the bacon and wine tasting! It was so original and delicious. My husband who doesn’t particularly like Reda enjoyed himself, because the bacon really brought out the Taste of the wine. I can’t wait to go back! The Sirachia bacon was by far our most favorite. I was able to get a reservation on the same day, and it was a Saturday in July.

We arrived for our 4:00 bacon and wine pairing. There were a handful of people but not too crowded and the room was large and had a lot. We were told to sit wherever we liked. Someone promptly came over with a glass of wine and let us know the bacon was being heated up. Each wine was explained and then we were left alone until they saw us drinking the next wine and then that wine was explained

There was a mix up as to the time they open. However we used the time to walk around Yountville and found some great places (the bakery up the street and Kollar Chocolates). The hostess, Michelle, and her buddy, Bear, were great! We did the wine and chocolate pairing AND the wine and bacon pairing. The wines were great and the tastings were awesome.

I made a reservation for my husbands 50th birthday. I requested charcuterie and a bacon tasting. When we arrived we were the only ones there. They apparently didn’t notice the food pairings or Birthday notes. I had to eventually ask after we were sat and started the wine portion. Although she was nice, and the wines were good, she didn’t make it “special “. A 50th should get an extra pour ?

What a wonderful Saturday morning spent at the Priest Ranch Tasting Room! The room is well decorated and comfortable, but more important is the staff and the wine. The staff was welcoming and very helpful in adding to our experience in learning about the wine. The wine itself was amazing and was paired so nicely with cheese. We left holding all the wine we could carry. A must stop location.
