“Quality Wine”
Reviewed 13 December 2011

$40 each to wine taste, but you get personal tasting and $100 to $200 bottle wines to taste. Very good wine and friendly people.

“tasty wines; over-commercialized”
Reviewed 11 December 2011

1) Good wines
2) Over-commercialized and impersonal tours
3) $10 tasting fee includes a glass; worth it just for the wines

“Second time here... Still a great experience...”
Reviewed 27 November 2011

Reservations are needed but well worth it. Reservations are set in 15 minutes intervals so it's likely you will get in. I believe there are different tours, ranging from parts of the vineyard to parts of the wine-making areas, and the tours are the right length (30-45 mins) to keep interest and engagement. The tour also included five tastings, all of which were fantastic wines. Also, our tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable, as was the rest of the staff. Overall, a very nice experience. We love wine and work in the industry and Cakebread is a great choice for anyone who loves red wines but still appreciates a good white.

“CHARDONNAY!”
Reviewed 22 November 2011

My husband and I visited with friends. We went because of the Chardonnay. It's the only Chardonnay we really love (we stick to reds). The staff was enthusiastic and willing to share everything they knew ... and take as much time as visitors wanted. The tastings were great ... well worth it.

“One of the best in napa”
Reviewed 31 October 2011

The winery is as special as the wine. We did the red wine tasting and left with a few bottles.
