1. Kuleto Estate Family Vineyards
Appointment Required: Yes
Cheapest Tasting: $35
Kuleto Estate Family Vineyards

Kuleto Estate is one of Napa Valley's best-kept secrets. The tour and tasting gives you a glimpse of Pat Kuleto's home on the property (the man who brought us such bay area restaurants as Boulevard, Farallon and Jardiniere) you'll see his working ranch (complete with live animals) and a state-of-the-art, gravity flow winery. Along the way you'll taste a variety of Kuleto Estate wines and fresh cheeses... after the tour you can relax on the patio and enjoy your wine amidst the most incredible view of Napa Valley you'll ever see.

Pride Mountain Vineyards

The setting for Pride Mountain Vineyards is breathtaking. Nestled atop Spring Mountain (at the border of Napa and Sonoma counties) they have sweeping views of wine country on all sides. They offer a few different tasting experiences including tasting at their bar, tasting and property tour or a private guided tour and formal tasting in their cave. The wine is SUPERB and has been highly rated by critics including Robert Parker.

 
 
3. Terra Valentine
Appointment Required: Yes
Cheapest Tasting: $30
Terra Valentine

A wine tasting at Terra Valentine is a special treat. You'll go on a tour of the stone and concrete castle situated 2,100 feet above Napa Valley (the stones of which were handset by the original owner). You'll learn about the architectural features as well as the state-of-the-art fermentation system. The tour culminates with a tasting of Terra Valentine wines, including two single vineyard cabernet sauvignons. The tasting includes a decadent pairing with artisan cheese and chocolate...it's a first class tasting experience.
