We had scheduled a tasting at Cakebread Cellars upon recommendations from our son. Erica was our hostess. She was very knowledgeable. She gave us a lot of history of the winery and a great tour of the facilities. We had our tastings outside in the courtyard, overlooking the house and vineyards. The wines were delicious! Highly recommend this wine tour... More

Straight off my group's visit from Opus One, I was ready for a true family winery feel, and Cakebread did not disappoint! This is my second time visiting Cakebread, for those who haven't heard of it, you gotta try it! I especially love their Sauv blanc, Chardonnay and Cabernet. The first tour I took in 2007, Jack Cakebread, the original... More

Added this tour on the recommendation of a friend the weekend before we got there. Really nice tour and tasting. Wish we could get some of their wines here on Maui!

My husband and I stopped here because he was familiar with the name of the winery since he has worked in fine dining restaurants in the past. Of all the tours we visited, this was the most laid back. Price is great and the wine is delicious, my husband is not a big red wine person and he even loved... More

I would highly recommend starting your trip to Napa at Cakebread. This was our first of six wineries for the weekend and I'm so thankful that it was. Cakebread provides you with one-on-one attention during your tasting with a private pourer for each party. Nancy was great! We were able to ask her questions about the wine making and bottling...

I was a bit underwhelmed by the tour. It was just OK. I guess I am a bit spoiled by some of the other amazing tours I have been fortunate to attend. It is big and commercial but I will admit the wines (especially Cabs) are amazing!

This was the quickest winery we visited. They don't have a tasting room, so you go to courtyard. I like the whites best. The guy was nice but not my favorite stop.

Fun tour that requires pre booking. Very informative on the making of wine and extensive tasting service after tour. Our guide Nick was very informative and made this a great experience. Beautiful setting and good wines.

Don't normally like Cabs, and really like Cakebreads sauvignon blanc and Chardonneys, but introduced to Dancing Bear Ranch Cabernet by Frank. This Cab was exquisite and the service provided by Frank incredible. He listened carefully to our likes and dislikes . He litterly restructured the tasting after listening and wound up bringing us great (to us) wines and making our... More

We decide to go back here after visiting several years ago. This proves the saying "you can't go back". The wines were mediocre at best. We suggest that you pass this place by. Very disappointing!!!
