Had a fabulous time at a tasting here in late March. The wines were fabulous and I learned a lot from James our guide. Bought some red wines to take home and have not been at all disappointed!

Jo, our host, was a great storyteller. She walked us through the grapevines and gave us a base history on the valley. Each wine sample came with fantastic insight into the areas the grapes were grown.

Having enjoyed Cakebread Wine all the way back in the Northeast, we were excited to visit the winery, and lucky enough to be able to take a tour. The tour was informative, we especially enjoyed the family history. The wines we tasted were excellent, and...More

We did the tasting and enjoyed it very much. The wine here is mid range prices so look upwards of 30.00/bottle. Their chardonnay reserve is amazing and I think it cost roughly 55.00 per bottle and these are U.S.$ prices. I bought several as really...More

What a special evening. It goes without saying the Cakebread Cellars have outstanding wines. What made this visit special was that we were able to book a private cooking class and dinner. Chef Brian coordinated a very instructive spring menu and Kelly kept us perfectly...More

Lots of construction going on with an expansion work. The tour was very nice & we enjoyed the wines. The sampling was a bit pricey though $25 each.

Recently went to Napa/St Helena area for the first time. Friends recommended that we stop here. Paid for the tour and "tasting". Tour guide was not friendly or fun to talk to at all. Pretty boring and monotone. I didn't learn anything because I just...More

Cakebread is on Highway 29 between Yontville and St Helena. It depends on your budget. Napa is less expensive and a few miles further. Yontville is a lovely little walking town, but more money. St Helena has fewer hotels... More
