We got lucky with this recommendation from TripAdvisor as we're rookies at wine tasting. Amber was very friendly and made us feel at home. Great introduction to Napa. The best one of the flight is with no doubt the Cabernet Sauvignon at $85.

Go to Gustavo if you want classic, French-style wines. Chardonnay will be unlike most in Napa, no secondary malolactic fermentation so no butter bomb, just pure expression of lovely Chardonnay. Cabernet and Merlot are also awesome and very reasonably priced. Happened to be there on...More

Take the time to visit this tasting room. For those that have seen the movie Bottleshock it will have added meaning. For those that haven't, the wine is great and the men and women behind the counter offer plenty of added value to the experience.

My wife and I had a remarkably good time here on a random stop while traveling through the area. Lots of history/story telling about the family and the region. We felt welcomed and relaxed and the wine was wonderful.

This tasting room is exceptional. We visited both Sonoma and Napa, many times. I believe that Gustavo wine rank among the top 5% of all the wines we have tried. After visiting it, we decided that, for that day, we would not try anything else...More

A few decades ago, Napa Valley wine makers were often told that their wines would never stand up to the European elite. Since proving the world wrong in the mid 1970's, Napa valley winemakers have striven to keep up a more American standard of excellence, where great wine is equal parts a result of the best grapes, the best processes, and only the strongest love for the art of winemaking. Gustavo Wines cherishes this environment, and has grown one owner's extreme love of making wine into an established winery. As a family business, the same processes that landed Gustavo Brambila a spot in the Napa Valley elite are passed down amongst the generations, preserving a rich heritage and art. Today, patrons are invited to come sample our wines, and hopefully fall in love with them half as much as the owners themselves. Wine tastings run for around $15, but are complimentary with the purchase of a bottle. For our buyers that just couldn't get enough, we've established our very own Wine Club which lets us ship our best wines to your doorstep. In the words of Gustavo Brambila himself, "Gustavo Wine is a reflection of my passion, heritage and lifetime love affair with wine. Winemaking is an artform and when others appreciate what I love, solidifies myself as an artist!". When done right, winemaking is a beautiful art-form, and we invite you to come experience it for yourself.
