We love this place for all it's charm and friendly faces. The tastings and pairings are perfect. The food truck has some great combinations.

If travelling in Napa doing a days wine tasting stop off at the food truck at Clif Winery. The bruschetta is wonderful. They have a ricotta one with jalapeños soo good. The chicken is wonderful but the warm melting chocolate chip cookies are sublime. Now you are fortified for the afternoons tastings!!!

Designated Drivers Napa arranged a private tasting for us at Cliff Family that didn't cost us anything due to the connection between the two companies. We really enjoyed conversation with our host, Siobhan, over an excellent tasting of the Cliff Family wine and food products at their private tasting room. The tasting was unique, personal, tasty, and fun. We tasted... More

We were looking for a more active experience for our brief stay in Napa - which led us to a different kind of pairing - Velo Vino and Calistoga Bike Shop. My interactions with Brad from the Calistoga Bike Shop were easy/helpful and by phone/online. We started at the Clif Family Velo Vino tasting room with a hot chocolate and... More

My wife and I had a great time at Clif. Everyone there is so friendly and the food is top notch. They have the only food truck in Napa, and it is cranking out delish bruschetta, salads, soups, chicken, and more. We paired to the food with wine and even had room for dessert and espresso. Such a great way... More

After visitinge some huge public wineries, someone recommended this place for we were unhappy with the "cattle call" wineries. It was a breath of fresh air. We were there on a Thursday afternoon and no crowds, the person doing our wine tasting was friendly, pleasant and didn't rush us at all. We ordered some items from the bruchetta food truck... More

It's Napa so great wine is expected we suppose. And Velo Vino does have great wines. The huge plus is that the Clif Bruschetta food truck is usually parked outside so you can combine great wine with great food. What really made this establishment stand out was the extremely accommodating and friendly staff. Samantha helped us select a case of... More

We stopped by The Clif Family Winery after being at a couple of other big wineries, and I'm so glad we did. My friends and I sat out on the patio and drank some wine.

This is by far my favorite winery. I love the atmosphere, the people who work there, the story of the winery, and of course the wine. The wine is so delicious. I wish I lived closer so I could go there all the time! If you are looking for a personal experience that is relaxed and low key, look no... More
