Beautiful grounds and buildings meant to resemble (not replicate) those on Jeffferson’s Monticello estate. Great selections of wines to sample. Lovely tastes, each worthy of its own volume of praise.

Love to visit family wineries in Napa Valley. Chris did a fabulous job as our host. He is very knowledgeable about the area and librery wines. Chris and the wines are worth visiting this beautiful stop right outside the Napa city limits.

Free wine tasting of this small specialty winery. Pleasant surroundings and a reasonably priced wine and cheese offering for purchase.

A bit off the beaten bath, Monticello has lovely grounds and areas where you could picnic. It's a very low key tasting room and you can find several nice bottles of red or white based on preference and the meal.
