    Great setting for sparkling wine testing!
    This is a lovely setting and we came on a sunny day to appreciate the great views. We had a sparkling wine flight with salmon & bread & crème fee he and capers. Very fun experience with friendly John as our waiter.

    A truly marvellous, very special experience.
    Went for the sparkling wine and food pairing. Gorgeous surroundings, wonderful wines and delicious South East Asian bites to accompany each of the wines. The service was impeccable. Our server could not have been more polite, friendly and knowledgeable. This winery is owned by Tattinger and the wines were exquisite. 10/10!

    Photogenic but the wine is a bit of a letdown
    Did a tasting here on our recent Napa trip. The best part is that the place is very photogenic. The Chateau's exterior is gorgeous, and the elevating setting offers a great view of the surrounding vineyards and the valley overall. A+ for this part of the experience. The staff was friendly and helpful, service was quick, and our waiter gave some good information considering it was just a tasting and not a tour. I am not a hugely knowledgeable wine person, so perhaps take this with a grain of salt. We did the sparkling wine sampler and for me, the wines were forgettable. Neither overly sweet or overly dry, nor especially tasty - just pretty average sparkling wine. My understanding is that this is one of the larger wine producers in the valley so they're doing large batches and aren't really making "boutique" wine so the wine is about what I'd expect given that. We also ordered the charcuterie plate, which was good - a couple of different types of salami, four types of cheeses, jam, bread, crackers, some dried apricots and some nuts. In any case when we go back to Napa we'll probably not come back here - its a great place to go for some photos, but given all the options in Napa, there's better uses of your limited time / money in terms of the actual wine you can taste and winery experiences.

    Wine tasting with unbelievable vistas
    My husband and I, along with our traveling companions, did a tasting at Domaine Carneros on August 20, 2023. Half of our group tasted the bubbly wines and the other half tasted the still wines. Our tasting was proctored by Arturo, who did a great job of informing us about the wines we were tasting. The views from the patio were stellar, absolutely breathtaking. Well, we’re taking the time to taste wine at this beautiful location.
    We're so glad you had a wonderful visit. Thank you for the review!

    We were about two hours late to our reservation, because our flights were delayed, but they were so nice that they got us in! Very very nice people and the customer service the whole time was great! The selection is amazing! Tons of sparkling wine ! I wish we could do all of the tastings! Everything we tasted was great! I read online somewhere that they give a bigger military discount than they did, but I guess that website was wrong. They still gave us a discount, but it wasn’t as much as the blog I read. As soon as you walk up, you feel like you are about to walk into a palace or a mansion. Definitely get some pictures! Even when you are inside or outside on the patio, the view is spectacular! Definitely one of the wineries that you do not want to miss!
    Terra, we are so glad to hear you enjoyed your time at the Chateau and we were able to reschedule your appointment! Cheers to many more bubbles in your future.

    A story book-like chateau for wine tasting!
    The views and the vibe of the chateau are like something you see in movies or it's like Instagram in real life. It is located on top of a hill and you cannot miss this in case you are cruising by. The interior is elegant and you have a picturesque view of the vineyards and also catch the sunset. They have a great selection of wine and also serve small bites. We got our wine flights with a charcuterie board to share. Our server was kind, patient, and attentive and we had a great conversation with him and learned more about the property, the wines, and other information.
    We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your experience at the Chateau. We agree - the views of the vineyards are magical. Cheers!

    The BEST wine tasting of our entire weekend!
    We engaged in 5 different winery tastings over a long weekend end and this was BY FAR our most favorite tasting. First, the property and grounds are beautiful! This place is reminiscent of traditional French Chateaus. Get there early and walk the grounds before going inside to attend a tasting. Domain Carneros is known for their Sparking Wines. We were fortunate to have Sherry, the Wine Fairy, as our guide. We were seated downstairs in an area that overlooks their production facilities. The view was meh, but that didn’t detract from the delicious tastings. We loved almost every we tried. We were so impressed both couples in our group joined their wine club. Sherry made our experience memorable. She is a gem! Also, they sell beautiful flutes for their sparkling wines at very reasonable prices. If you only have time for a couple of tastings, make sure this one is on your list!
    Thank you for taking the time to leave such kind words - we'll make sure to pass on the sentiments to Sherry! We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your time at the Chateau and look forward to hosting you again. Cheers to many more bubbles in your future!

    One of my favorites spots as a Napa veteran!
    Domaine Carneros is one of my favorite spots as a Napa veteran!!! I live in Northern California and I’m fortunate to be close enough to visit Napa regularly for the last 10 plus years and we love this winery. The grounds are gorgeous, the service is excellent and the sparkling rose is worth a tasting. Also would recommend for tastings, girls trip and couples adventures. Definitely worth a visit.

The place is beautiful and has a beautiful view, but that’s really it. This winery is essentially a gift shop. You can try the wine but you are just another unit to them to get in and out. The staff isn’t rude or anything but there is no substance there, it is a gift shop. Nobody will tell you about the winery, there’s no tour of anything or history or detail about the wine. You just get seated, order and then you’re out. The worst part for us was the bugs. If you sit outside which most do, they do not have heaters and there are a lot of little gnats and bugs flying around. We all had a couple of bugs in every single glass by the end so just look out for that. You would think they’d be aware and not seat people outside or give covers for your glasses, just something to set on top. Anyway the wine itself is fine. View is fine. Staff isn’t super friendly it’s just fine.

Visited 8/17. There is absolutely no value in visiting this winery. I'm actually upset that I wasted my money visiting. The grounds are pleasant. Sparkling wines were all terrible. And the Charcuterie was lacking. All and all for the two if us for 2 wine flights and Charcuterie was almost $250 basically to have the privilege of "dining" al fresca here. What a waste. Visited 6 other wineries this visit all were exceptional.Take a lesson from me... skip this one. Go someplace that had good wine and offers a better value like one where your tasting purchase is applied to your wine purchase.

Hello Camille, We're disappointed that you didn't walk away with a good impression of Domaine Carneros and didn't feel you got value from your experience. Based on the pricing you reference, your order included some of our more elevated offerings, since tastings are $40 for five wines. We wish we had done better to impress you with those offerings and would welcome the chance to communicate with you if you felt inclined to reach out to our Visitors Center manager Russ at 707266-5141 or rcraigie@domainecarneros.com. -Phoebe
