My wife and I had the absolute pleasure of visiting Miner and we had such a wonderful experience there. Our wine host, Shelby, was very sweet, informative, conversational, and knowledgeable about the winery, family, and answer several of my wife's random questions. The inside of the tasting room had a laid back clean-modern-rustic feel, with its blend of wood, leather, and metal furniture. Make sure you stop to admire the jazz guitars that are displayed there too. Would highly recommend that you stop by this place!

Greg -thank you for the amazing experience at our wine tasting. You shared much information and made us laugh until our sides hurt. Our Rothschild group had a wonderful time and we can’t wait to come back and visit. We visited many wineries-thanks to Greg and the wine-Miner was the best! Thanks Greg!!!

The morning started with a beautiful wine tasting in the heart of a cave. The table was well decorated and the room was a great temperature. You could smell the wood barrels throughout the space. Our guide, Greg, was absolutely fantastic. His knowledge about the winery and wine in general, added to our beautiful experience of tasting fabulous wines. We couldn’t help ourselves and purchased several vintages of the Oracle. No regrets here! Thank you so much for the hospitality, everyone! It was fabulous.

Very unprofessional experience at Miner family on Saturday, July 23rd 2022. We have been members of Miner for years and visit their winery for special occasions and buy a lot of wine from them. We were there celebrating a special birthday on July 23rd 2022 when without informing us prior to our visit at the time of booking on the phone, we were asked to pay $140 for a Napa tax at the end of the wine tasting and purchasing many bottles of wine. This is not fair and highly bad service to the regular clientele. All they could do was tell us about this Napa surcharge at time of booking which may be not the normal taxes collected. We called up their winery yesterday and today and even after Miner customer service acknowledging that we were not notified of this charge at the time of booking, it showed up on the bill and we have to pay for it. There are more than enough wineries in Napa that need more business in this economic climate. I am cancelling my membership and not recommend Miner Family to ANYONE

This is one winery worth having a wine club membership. Every time I have visited with my guests (friends and family), my guests have experienced exceptional service, simply the best! As a wine club member, one can enjoy the views of beautiful Napa from their third floor club room while tasting wine from a constantly varied wine menu. Wines at Miner are fantastic and priced fairly. But more importantly, they treat customers like family! I love this place.

A very happy experience. The wine tasting was excellent - their wild yeast is definitely our favorite Chardonnay, their reds were good too. Really enjoyed the amount of time we could have talking with our very knowledgeable host. Views from the terrace were spectacular. Perfect on a sunny day.

Really nice wines, gorgeous tasting room and truly phenomenal host made this one of the top spots of our 21 winery vacation! I’m embarrassed I don’t remember our host’s name, but she was welcoming, professional, and very knowledgeable. When she learned I preferred Chardonnays, she adjusted my tastings to reflect that. She definitely knew her stuff and answered all our questions thoughtfully and thoroughly. There was no hard sell, which is always a plus for us, and we ended up having several bottles shipped home, including a bottle of The Oracle, which was one of my husband’s favorites of the trip!

It was a cool, cloudy morning, so we weren’t able to sit on their deck and enjoy the amazing view, but it worked out well for us, as Miner’s tasting room is stunning and a perfect setting for a tasting of some fabulous wines!

Wine and location/view was amazing, however they seemed to be very short staffed. Two staffers were serving over 6 tables and looked like their hair was on fire. Our group felt like we were cattle being herded and rushed through the tasting. Tasty wine, but not a great experience.
