We drove by the vineyard and noticed that tastings were only by reservations. We booked a reservation and got in that afternoon. The grounds are beautiful, at first we were disappointed that the tasting fees were high ($35/person) since we just did a wine tour the day before where the fees were $10-$15/person and fees were waived if you bought...

My wife and I have visited many of the Napa and Sonoma wineries over the years and are club members of a few. We had had the chance to try some of Duckhorn's older Cabs which we had loved so we were excited to visit... we left disappointed First the place is huge... you enter by the gift shop and... More

I can't speak for others. However, as far as I'm concerned, this particular vineyard produces abundant enough vantages and at a more reasonable price per bottle than many other top Napa vineyards, so that is better known to red wine lovers. I have always appreciated their red line and I stop there every time I'm in Napa Valley. I will... More

This was a lovely winery with very nice tastings. My husband and I were able to share our tasting and it was plenty. My friends and I loved their wine called Discussion and they even joined their wine club! Staff was also very helpful and even called another winery to check on reservations for us.

Duckhorn is so lovely! We went on a Friday morning at 11am and the weather was cold and rainy. Only 1 other couple was there besides us. The beautiful wrap around porch was pristine and inviting and had heaters all around to keep the temperature perfect. Samm was our server and was so much fun. It was Ugly Christmas sweater... More

The grounds are beautiful and this is a sitting tasting so you can choose between sitting inside or outside. The staff was very nice and welcoming and our "tasting guide" was informative and personable...even throwing in a couple surprise curveballs in the end. The tastings include wines typically not found in stores and is a must go for any wine... More

We went here based on a recommendation and we are so happy we did. Geordy was our server and he was very knowledgeable and informative, as well as friendly. We LOVED that each wine was served with a cardstock version of the wine label. The back of each label explained about each wine, barrel time, etc. They offered free shipping... More

This was the perfect setting! It's very much restaurant style - a beautiful porch where you sit at a private table and taste with a server waiting on you. It's a great way to get off your feet after a long day of walking and standing. Very relaxing, personal and informative!

We always try to visit Duckhorn when we are in the Napa area. The wines are excellent and the staff friendly and knowledgeable. It's generally a busy place do make a reservation or go early. They open at 10 am. It's five someplace.

Doing the tasting at Duckhorn Vineyards is well worth it, particularly if sharing. The vineyards are beautiful, the seating great, and so on. The wines were very good, not stellar. As such, I felt the $95 price tag on most probably wasn't warranted. The wine tasting experience is good and professionally set up. I was handed a glass of Sauvignon... More
