Alina was an awesome host. She poured us great wine after great wine. Told us the story of the Black Chicken. The blackboard with our names on it was a great touch, made us very welcomed.

I had a reservation, so I knew I would be welcomed, but was surprised to see a chalkboard with my name on it waiting for me at a beautiful table overlooking their vineyards. The wines were great, the tasting room staff was very conversational and provided some great insight into their wines, where the grapes were grown and were just... More

Biale is a winery specializing in Zinfandels. Our host Pat was incredibly! He was friendly, educating, and wanted us to have an enjoyable time. My dad owns a restaurant and Pat recently sold his so they hit it off talking shop. Pat knows and understands what he is selling. He even brought out dirt for us to smell to help... More

While most of Napa tore up their Zinfandel vines in the 80's after they learned they could make cabs and charge a lot more for them, Biale stayed the course. As a result of this, you get a vineyard that is uniquely different than most of their neighbors. The staff is friendly and not at all pretentious. They enjoy educating... More

We were treated very well on our private, reserved tasting. Biale has a rich and colorful history. We love their Black Chicken signature Zin, now they have a clean and fun chicken coop with black chickens strutting around! Nice shaded outdoor seating within a few feet of the vines.
