“Le Reve - Bubbles Galore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012

Enjoying Napa for a girls only outing, this was our first stop. Santos was our server and he bent over backwards to make our visit special! He was very well versed on his sparklies and made sure we knew what we were enjoying without being overbearing.

The trio tastings are large and diverse to give you a complete experience, try the sparkling cheese platter.

A lovely dining room made for a richer experience, great views and great service. I would return without a doubt. The sparkling wine was very nice and paired well with the perfect company (mom, sis, and daughter) We were all impressed.

“A Very Posh Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2012

Absolutely wonderful experience. My husband and I went here early in the day to avoid the crowd (good idea because the main tasting room was full by noon). Each tasting is seated and, if the weather is nice, the balcony is opened for additional seating. My husband and I split the sparkling tasting (very generous pours) and the sparkling cheese plate. Everything was delicious and the presentation was gorgeous. If you enjoy bubbles and are looking for a "special" experience, this vineyard is an absolute must. Make a reservation in advance if you would like a tour in addition to the tasting.

“First class experience...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2012

We have been to Napa many times, but this was our first visit to Domaine Carneros and we were very impressed. The building is absolutely beautiful, on a grand scale. We loved the fact that all tastings are done at individual tables -- not standing at a bar. Service was outstanding. A wait person explains the tasting menu, which can run from $16 to $25 per flight. This winery is known for their pinot noirs, so we chose the red wine flight, but we were also treated to a complimentary glass of pinor sparkling wine as well. All the wines were outstanding and we did purchase a bottle. Would definitely recommend this as a first stop on your way into Napa Valley.

“Beautiful spot to sip the bubbly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2012

Beautiful building and grounds. Very generous, full servings of sparkling wine, and you can order appetizers to nibble on. Nice place to sit awhile.
