Went with a group of colleagues. The view and tasting were superb. We started with a sauvignon blanc - which I rarely like, but loved. Then we moved into a private room where we had a small cheese board and a sample of four fabulous...More

Cardinale Estate Winery has been on the top of my go to list for years. Chris Carpenter wines do not disappoint. On our journey to sensory overload, our hostess, Leah, was extremely knowledgable and described wines in terms the novice could easily understand. We had...More

Chris Carpenter's cabernets are simply delicious. We tasted every year from 2006 and I would enjoy them all at anytime. The information we received was worth the tasting alone. We now have a six bottle vertical beginning 2006.

Our group of 8 reserved a private tasting, and we were all overjoyed with our guide, the winery and, of course, the wine! We really enjoyed most of the wines we tasted and bought several bottles as well. Beautiful location and view. Seriously fantastic wine....More

Be sure to reserve a tasting, as this is the only way (VERY FEW walk-ins) to enjoy this amazing winery. This was the last stop for our trip, and we saved the best for last. We were treated amazingly well by Jason, who conducted the...More

If you don't mind spending a little more for a totally awesome tasting experience, this may be one to try. The wines are as near to 100 out of 100 as they get. Bring your wine palate and your wallet.

Not only is this winery beautiful but the hosts are very knowledgable. But the wines...you go for the wines. I couldn't ask for a better wine in Napa. Both the Lokoyas and the Cardinales were fantastic!

The Cardinale Tasting Room in Oakville introduced us to several of the premium Kendall Jackson wines. The tour of the wine making area was also very informative as we learned about the grapes, sorting and aging methods.

We paid for a private seating for 8 people which was $85 per person. However, it was awesome. We had 6+ wines with extra pours and all the food tasting accoutrements. Given their wine can be $150 to $250 per bottle, it... More
