We visited for the first time to Quintessa. Evan was a great guide of the winemaking process and then we had a beautiful tasting in a pavilion Overlooking the property. Wines were delicious, host was great, overall a really nice private wine tasting!

I was really excited about this Winery since I had just visited Neyen Winery in Chile. Our guide was very disappointing as he didn't show us any of the vines or caves. We sat in a room and tasted wines while he gave us basic lessons in wine making. I won't hesitate to purchase Quintessa wines at home, but can't... More

Try to call ahead to reserve one of the outdoor tables at the top of the hill in the back of the vineyard. Our guide got us up there and it was just GORGEY-PORGEY Definitely a great stop but get that back area reserved!!!

This was the perfect Napa valley visit. We can't say enough about the personalized tour, the thorough explanation of the wine making process, the tasting and the not at all hard sell. It's a very special place that employs very special people. Even in the rain the setting was absolutely stunning. Darren was our expert guide and we so enjoyed... More

We had a private tour and barrel tasting as part of a private group. Our barrel tasting was held at the new Tasting Pavillion at the top of the hill. It overlooks the vineyards. We did a side-by-side wine comparisons with their 2014 Western Bench and 2014 Dragon's Terrace and then got to experiment mixing them together. These wines show... More

Visited here as 2 couples, reservations are a must. The winery is a gorgeous, family-owned operation. Our tour guide, Jacqueline, was very knowledgeable and so nice. The tastings were delicious and we were offered a "revisit" of the wines several times. We took home a bottle of the 2013 current release. We plan to put it away for a few... More

Intimate, personal tour was very pleasant and full of good information about the wine, land, and philosophy. Great if you like this particular type of red blend. Other tours are somewhat similar, so recommend picking a variety of types of you are in Napa. Recommended stop overall.

We scored on this one. Actually hit a time they were processing grapes on the crush pad right in front of the winery. We've been to so many places, but not seen actual production yet. They took us right to the machines and let us taste the sorted berries. After that and a tour of the facility, we did the... More
