  • We've been here many times, and even attended one of their events. Not pretentious, like most Napa wineries They have a large variety, of very good wines. Beautiful grounds and great deli. 
  • One of the few if only wineries with a picnic area and great selection of good, not crowded this time of year, but very in summer.Enjoy the wine and a nice lunch good another unique for Napa... 
  • We've been coming to Sattui for over 30 years, certainly for the wonderful wines, but also for the joy of picnicking in the shady area outside the tasting room. I think the Howell Mountain Zinfandel r...  read more »
  • This place is an incredible Winery. Everything tasted awesome. Their selection of Reds was simply some of the best wines in the valley in my opinion. Because they do not distribute to stores you really need to come here check this Winery out before going to any others in the valley. You will not be disappointed by the selections of wines you are served and everyone here is excellent in their service and their attitudes are exceptional. If you get a chance to meet Luis the manager tasting room the manager of the tasting room say hi.
  • 2nd time here and this time we brought our 2 young children aND loved it. Nice 45 min tour, good bbq, wonderful grounds and great experience not to miss. Danica was our guide as was awesome. She showed us and we tasted 6 wines and I asked for 2 more small tastes and she said sure :) we ended up buying 6 bottles. I even raved the juice they gave our kids was fantastic. She said it good w vodka too and I agree. I hope to make a 3rd visit again in a few years.
  • Really cool to see the very popular winery. Cheap tastings give you a lot of variety, but with service can be slightly overwhelmed at times with the volume of people they're dealing with. Overall very enjoyable to see one of the staples, but if you want a more relaxed environment you may be better trying somewhere else. To be fair we did not try the private tours, however.
  • Come on the weekend and enjoy a bbq lunch under the walnut trees with some of the great wines they make here. We came for a wedding rehearsal party and got a great tour from Brianna and enjoyed a really great lunch. Would absolutely recommend coming here.
  • Never go to Napa on a Saturday or Sunday, since ALL places are crazy busy and crowded. If at all possible, visit during the week...even Fridays are pleasant. That said, we always stop in at V.Sattui for lunch and a bottle of wine. The deli is good and the cheese selection is vast. The wine list is huge, and a portion of the huge list is actually quite good and a good value for Napa. Some of the Cabernets in their portfolio would cost 2x or 3x at another winery. Definitely a "fun" place if you're new to wine/wine tasting, but also some very decent wine to be had for more "serious" wine lovers.
