At arrival my sisters and I headed to the lady's room. It was a total mess. I went and told the hostess however at the end of our tour (1 hour later) the bathrooms were still a mess. Our guide took us to the first tasting station and a sitting area was also a total mess with dirty glasses and plates. Our guide was terrible. He did not impart knowledge of the vineyard or wine making.

Napa Valley Classics Tasting Bar Experience on 8/18/18 3:00 PM

As someone who loves visiting Napa Valley, this place was ultimately extremely disappointing. $30 for a tasting seemed appropriate and inexpensive. The scenery was gorgeous but that's where the compliments end, Tasting was terrible. Wine was lack luster but that's all preference based. What was the most disappointing was the service. Small pours, memorized wine facts that weren't even detailed.

Anna and Scott could not have created a more perfect day. We really appreciated the personalization and private tour of the caves. Scott was a great tour guide and host and we enjoyed all the knowledge he was able to share with us. While every part of the day was wonderful, we thoroughly enjoyed our picnic in the Olive Grove and the wonderful added touch of the charcuterie and dessert. Thank you!!

Nobody greeted us. Poor and impersonal staff. Had to figure out how things worked even though we had reservations and a priority wine pass. Like a puppy mill. Poured wine, briefly explained it then walked away. Were told we could have our tasting fees comped if we purchased. We then were told they would not so we left. Won' t come back. To many great vineyards in Napa.

Jimmy did a great job with our guests, he was very knowledgeable but not full of himself, he had a good sense of timing during the tour and was friendly and not intimidating to the guests. The wines were a huge step up in quality, the tour was thoughtful and quite interesting. Jimmy deserves huge accolades.

Upon arriving at Rutherford we knew we stumbled upson something special. The building itself is beautiful with such a unique architectural design and the grounds are very well kept and quite stunning. Our group did the cave tasting and tour which I highly recommend. We were able to walk inside the cave as well as do a tasting straight from the barrel!
