We chose the red flight which was delicious. The staff were very knowledgable and shared some great back stories on the founders and their links with Ansel Adams. New for me was they originally were known for their whites (and they're still very good) but their real strength is their Cabernet Sauvignon although I suggest you check prices as we... More

Cakebread, what an awesome last name. They offer 5 different types of tastings. We did the Red Wine Tasting ($30/pp). We were greeted with a tasting of rose while we waited for our group to gather. James was our host. He used to be a wine maker and was very engaging and informative. We tasted 7 different reds. James went... More

Under construction so hard to judge the layout. We were taken to a warehouse for a private tasting by appointment and stood on a concrete floor for the duration. The extremely informative and enthusiastic host offset the drab surroundings as did the exceptional wine. At $15 it was the best value for a tasting we had on our visit.

I thought that I had made a reservation for a white tasting, but it was not in the system. They were very gracious and took us anyway on a busy Sunday. We really enjoyed the tasting. Very informative with no big sales job to join the club of buy wines. We also got an extra pour of a red as... More

We made our reservation that day, they were able to squeeze us in. Our "flight" was with a few groups. Which we didn't mind. The actually tasting is conducted in w/the barrels. Which was very nice. We were told about the history of the property, how the wines are made, which grapes are used, etc. It was great. When we... More

Cakebread is a solid vintner with a good selection of quality chardonney and cab along with other varieties. They have the wine tasting/tour business down pat. With their new tasting area and outside patio for club members, the gardens are beautiful. The "hosts" are energetic and well trained. The aren't gouging the consumer with $40 tastings and do offer a... More

It was a pretty location and Pam was a lovely host. We changed our reservation the same morning to accommodate our visit to the redwoods. I wish we could have seen more of the grounds and storage but not sure if they do that for an average Joe.

Our party of 4 did not care for their wines. Pretty disappointing tasting. There are many other wineries I would recommend visiting.

The tour was great, enjoyed the wine. The tasting offered about 4-5 selections. The wine was moderately priced. Recommend their blends.

A cooking class at Cakebread was a special treat. We worked with Chef Brian Streeter "whipping up" a 5-star lunch. Once lunch was prepared with were poured a glass of their delicious Chardonnay and enjoyed a tour of the winery. Lovely staff, gorgeous property and world class wine! What an enjoyable day!
