  • We took a tour with a tasting. The wines are good. Chances are you have seen them in a store near you. The tour was nice, but small. You walk back to the storage area, lack of a better term, and the g...  more »

  • 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.
  • 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!
  • One of the best and most informative tastings I've ever experienced in almost a decade of regular trips to Napa. Delicious wines, incredible service, and a very unique tasting experience.
  • Smooth. Clean. Fruity. Dry excellent best tasting Chardonnay that I have experienced
  • Excellent tour, good value and great wine. Worth a visit as its one of the smaller wineries that make wine the right way.
