We had an opportunity to do a private tasting at Cakebread and really enjoyed it. The upgraded tasting takes place in a small private tasting room. Only 2 couples were there so we had great attention from a great host, Don. The wines were excellent quality, select wines. We heard very good background on each wine, the grapes, and the... More

Cakebread has superb wine, but we were disappointed with the lack of grandeur (i suppose) at the tasting facility. Our host was well versed and let us take as long as we wanted, so that was nice. A Pinot Noir that is only available onsite was leggy and luscious. I usually stick to Cabs and it was as good as.... More

We took a tour with a tasting. The wines are good. Chances are you have seen them in a store near you. The tour was nice, but small. You walk back to the storage area, lack of a better term, and the guide tells you about it. It is neat to see the barrels, but it would have been nice... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Greg, who taught us so much about the grape-growing and wine-making process. For a non-drinker married to someone who appreciates wine, this was the perfect mix of tour and tasting. And what a value- $25 for a 90min tour and tasting. Make a reservation now to visit Cakebread Cellars!

Who knew Cake Bread had so much history? Besides the fabulous wine, the grounds are amazing as well!

My first mudding was much more enjoyable than I thought it would be. Thick mud you float in. Hot sulfuric heat and smells followed by a shower then jacuzzi to thoroughly clean out your body parts Very relaxing and you leave feeling like a sponge. A really nice experience and

I remember visiting Cakebread Cellars when the "tasting room" was little more than a shack on the side of Highway 29 (and so was another favorite Sequoia Grove next door). The good news is that while Cakebread has certainly gotten much bigger over the years, the wine has remained a focus and it shows. An excellent list of varietals and... More

Cakebread is known for their chardonnay. This was a great experience to taste their other offerings. Our hostess, Erika, was amazing. Her knowledge and personality made this a delightful experience. This tasting was done surrounded by casks...such fun to see a different setting. Super small and cozy!

I love Cakebread wine. But, their tasting experience was below par, and the least enjoyable our recent wine tasting trip. The staff was very unenthusiastic and simply going through the motions. Tastings are experiential not just about pouring wine in a glass. Cakebread was not enjoyable. We left halfway through the tasting.

Cakebread is pretty reasonable and has a nice tasting format. You can do a basic tasting for 15/person. Rather than cramming around tasting bar, they walk you around the property through the cellar, gardens, vineyard, etc and give you pours with commentary along the way. They are probably best known for whites and the two chards are pretty good. Wasn't... More
