  • Matt, in the reserve tasting room was great, very knowledgable and really made the experience a lot of fun, 
  • My boyfriend and I did a red & white wine tasting while in Napa as Cakebread is one of my mom's favorite wineries. Tasting fees were $15/person which were reasonable and the tasting groups were limite...  more »
  • Another obligatory stop in Napa Valley. Charming place, excellent care and extraordinary wines. All this in a tasting of an hour in which we tried at least 10 different wines, each one better. It is an experience not to be missed.

  • Excellent tour, good value and great wine. Worth a visit as its one of the smaller wineries that make wine the right way.
  • I have been a long time customer and lover of this establishment since it opened! I used to come over from the mainland to see my parents and are first stop would be to go to Hot Chocolate to pick up some of there delicious decedent treats and then walk along 5th street. When I heard they were opening up Cake Bread I was delighted and I am never disappointed! They're plenty to help even with all the hustle and bustle of people in and out. My old favourite is the White Chocolate Raspberry Scone! Yum! I recently went to taste test the plethora of different oils and vinegars they have and went home with some white truffle oil and huckleberry balsamic vinegar. They did not disappoint!
  • Superb wine but expensive. We didn't have an appointment but the gentleman at the front desk gave the four of us a free taste of their Cabernet. Out of this world good!
  • Been a member here for almost 2 years, and I can honestly say I have never had a bad experience. The staff are always friendly, and the wines are always amazingly. They might not all tickle your palate, but there will always be at least a couple that will satisfy you. The only downside is they are by appointments only, so make sure you call ahead and set an appointment up.
  • This was one of the best wine tasting experiences in Napa Valley! The wines are, of course, excellent but what really stood out was the customer service. They are really talented, very welcoming, and offered to share as much about the wine making experience as we wanted. I also loved that no one pushed us to buy any wine afterwards. But again, the wines are fabulous at Cakebread so we took a couple of bottles home. Would go again and again!
