  • This was expensive to start with and poor value overall - for 25 dollars each, all we got was five splashes of their wine - which we really didn't rate. Our party of four consumed less than a bottle b...  more »
  • We were very happy to stop at this vineyard for their wine tasting. Adored their Chardonnay and Zinfandel...walked away with 6 bottles....can't wait to drink them. Lovely staff made our visit that mor...  more »
  • Beautiful winery to visit. The drive going to the winery itself is gorgeous year round. If you are a club member take advantage of booking in advance as it does get busy especially on the tasting deck...  more »

  • We have been club members here for at least 8 years. We love this winery for the wines and the views. Great Zinfandel and Chardonnay;
  • What a change from the family winery I discovered years ago. The last visit i was told the road was closed and there was a detour. Reservations are now required to taste for all members. The tasting menu is set, no options or substitutions. I wanted to taste a wine i wanted to purchase and was told no. If i wanted to taste it, go and buy it. When i called about traffic, I was told if i was 15 minutes late, i would be considered a no show. This was at 12 noon and our first stop. I wanted to purchase with 2 credit cards and that was a problem. When we arrived up top, the parking lot was almost empty and they were not busy. It has become very corporate and rigid it seems. I miss the rombauer i discovered years ago. Wines are good, but the experience was a disappointment.
  • The scenery and picnic tables nestled amongst the winery hillside is a beautiful place for a picnic. If you're bringing a picnic, get there early before lunch to snag a spot, as they go quickly. The wine is divine!!! The tasting experience is inside and, while full of information, feels a little rushed and not that relaxing of a venue.
  • Known for their Chardonnay, wine tasting is $25, with the view and wine well worth it. They also have a picnic permit and you can enjoy lunch with a view after tasting.
  • Every taste topped the last, a seemingly impossible feat! Truly beautiful property, and our host, Stephanie was GREAT!!!

Where to stay in St. Helena

Because St. Helena is nestled in upscale wine country, most people who visit have no intention of roughing it. As such, the city sports a number of luxurious hotels. Several boast restaurants, hot tubs, and swimming pools; however, keep in mind that those with extensive grounds tend to be farther away from the main street. Budget-conscious travelers can find some more basic motels (looking farther out of town is a good way to save a few dollars). However, those staying on the outskirts should be aware that parking--particularly during high season--can be challenging in the city.
