My husband and I are here for our 10 year anniversary. We saw kastonia on the map on our way up to healdsburg. We drive in and to our disappointment saw it was only open sat/sun and by appt. well, rut owner saw up, ran up the hill, introduced himself as "hoot" and invited us in! We tried 3 amazing pinots our of the bottle and one cab/cab Franc. He then opened up a 2010 bottle and shared it with us. He was so laid back and taught us so much even though we were not on the schedule! He started off out 10 year anniversary trip great! We bought a bottle of the delicious Pinot! So happy, thanks hoot!!!

I've never managed to get a taste for wine (or maybe my palette just isn't sophisticated enough for wine) but I visited Kastania with a bunch of colleagues whilst on a trip. The hosts were wonderfully friendly and more than happy to talk us through their wines in detail - the wine must be good as there were a few there that I actually liked!

So thanks to the hosts for being generous with their time and hope they remember the Sunday when a bunch of Scots descended on their lovely vineyard!

We have been to Kastania Vineyards several times. The Pinot noir is outstanding and Hoot and Linda are great hosts. This is a place to visit and bring friends here when they visit from out-of-town.

You will love Hoot and Linda, the owners-they welcome you like old friends and the wines are fabulous. We just purchased the 2009 Pinot Noir Proprietor's Reserve and came home to the East Coast to find it listed in the May issue of Wine Spectator as a recommended California Pinot Noir! Congrats to Hoot and Linda. Easy location directly off Rte. 101 as you approach the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco. You can easily make it your "end of day" stop and a fitting end to your day in Napa.
