  • We visited Alpha Omega as part of a pre-arranged tour with a driving company. Alpha Omega was above our requested budget, but we weren’t aware of that when we sat down. We waited 20 minutes for a wine...  more »

  • Nice place. Nice wines. Nice views. Has electric car chargers in the parking lot.
  • Amazing experience with great wines and wonderful views. Highly recommend you check this place out and ask for the “French guy”!
  • Went to napa on a rainy Thursday with a couple of friends. I always wanted to try Alpha Omega, so after Cakebread cellar we came here. Due to the weather, it wasn't busy at all. Our sommelier was Jackie, and she was great! All of their wines were big, bold and delicious, with not one bad one in sight. Our only real complain is the price of the tasting. The cheapest is $50 for 4 wines, while the reserve is $75 for 3 wines. Fortunately, for every bottle you buy, one tasting will be comp. So if you want big, bold wine and good service, check this place out. However, just be ready to buy some wine to cover your tasting.
  • Our 10th winery visited in Napa. After 3 hours of drinking with K.R III we did a short pit stop to eat something and recharge our batteries. My GF called AO to let them know we were running a few minutes late, no problem. We arrived half an hour past the scheduled time, waited around 10 minutes and checked into a private tasting room. I can tell that being anywhere outside on the patio is even better because of the nice views and relaxing atmosphere, but we were referred by my friend Dr. Carlos Wolf who is well connected here, so Chris C, the manager of Wine Clubs left instructions of what was going to take place… Although this won’t be the normal tasting most people will experience when coming here, it may be of your interest because I will cover aspects related to their wine and customer services: Before today, I only knew Alpha Omega wine by name, never tasted any of them. We started with some Unoaked Chardonnay, which I’m not a fan of, and the regular one which was good. Then Kathy suggested that we try their top, Chardonnay Reserve 2012 which was really impressive! From there we moved to some Pinots, then Blends and Cabs, until we arrived to the really good stuff; their SINGLE VINEYARDS CABERNETS. I believe we tried them all. There were too many and I had a palate fatigue since we were drinking since 11AM… What I can tell you without a doubt is that all of these wines are big, bold, powerful, with lot of personality, long finish and extremely enjoyable. Since January 1st 2018 I became a fan of AO wine! These are the Single Vineyards Cabernets we tasted and my ratings: 2015 AO Beckstoffer To Kalon (97) 2015 AO Beckstoffer Dr. Crane (97) 2015 AO Thomas (don’t recalled) 2015 AO Stagecoach (91) 2015 AO Beckstoffer Georges III (93) 2015 AO Beckstoffer Las Piedras (93) 2015 AO Sunshine Valley (92) 2015 AO Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper (don’t recalled) The decoration of the Private Client’s area and Private Tasting Room are impeccable, low light, wood everywhere, classic chairs, and all-neat! The outside grounds are flawless as well. The wine glasses are topnotch, and their cheese pairings are excellent. Everybody was very friendly despite being New Year’s Day and late in the afternoon. Our wine-guide Kathy Berez is definitely an asset for AO, she is very knowledgeable, has patience, and has a great personality for what she does plus a lifelong experience in the industry. Here are my ratings to all visited wineries in alphabetical order, for details on each one look for my reviews: Services - Wine - Overall Alpha Omega 5 5 5 Darioush 5 5 5 Duckhorn 1 3 2 Hendry Vineyard 5 4 4 Joseph Phelps 5 5 5+ Merryvale 5 4 5 Merus 5 5 5+ Ovid 5 5 5 Paraduxx 4 3 4 Rombauer 5 4 5+ Silver Oak 5 4 5 When we got home I called Chris to order 2 cases of the Single Vineyards and we placed the order over the phone, then an error was made on the shipping speed and I received one box damaged. I emailed Chris and he referred the case to Ryan in the shipping department who immediately resent the whole order using 2nd Day to make sure the weather didn’t affect the wine again. I have no complaints, errors do occur but the most important part is when you have the option to rectify, and they did in a classic fashion!!!
  • I don't typically write reviews but I'll make an exception for this place. A girlfriend and I visited alpha omega today after a lovely day of wine tasting. We had a reservation and were seated outside with a gorgeous view of the fountain. That's where the good review stops. The guy helping us treated us as though we couldn't afford the tasting (even though we asked for the reserve tasting). He automatically assumed we were splitting it (hadn't planned on splitting until he decided that for us). Brought two different wines at a time so we had no idea which ones we were tasting and brought the others before we were done with the first two. At the end of the tasting, which was super rushed, he asked us if we wanted to purchase any wine. I always purchase wine, unfortunately I had no idea which was my favorite due to how it was presented us. I paid the tasting fee only and then he told me "tips are appreciated". Honestly, I was appalled and it's the reason for my first yelp review.
