“Wine and Food Pairing Experience is a must!”
Reviewed 15 March 2012

After 3 different recommentations from friends, my husband and I made the very smart choice of visiting Cakebread Cellars in Rutherford. We chose to do their wine and food pairing option that was $45 each person, but worth the amount of wine, knowledge and delicious food that you get. Our tour guide, Bob, was extremely friendly and knowledgable about not only Cakebread wine, but the various foods that each wine could be paired with. The grounds are beautiful and lovely to walk around. The wines are a little bit pricey, but the Dancing Bear Cabernet is worth every penny.

“Don't waste your money”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

Being a fan of this wine I was excited to share this wine experience with my friends. We had a reservation for 4 people so expected they would control the number of people in their very small reserve tasting room. They put 14 to 16 people in this room which made it very crowded and hard for someone to try and service everyone. Twice we had ro ask to pour as they had forgotten us. The cost for $30 for the tasting...highly overpriced for the experience!
When we shared our experience with others they weren't at all surprised as they had heard it many times.
