We visited Caldwell winery on our last day in Napa and I am so glad we didn't miss this place. The views upon arrival are beautiful and the cave tasting was so elegant yet in no way pretentious or stiff. Our tasting was led by Brian, who has some Virginia roots (we loved that!), and he did a great job... 更多
This was one of our best visits in the valley. We've been to Napa about 10 times (would be more if we lived closer). John Caldwell greeted us in a cave for a sitdown tasting and talk. Great history, great wine, great spread of cheese, etc. $65 per person and WELL worth it! Loved it. He is so funny!
The cave is immaculate and the experience was such that not only did I buy wine there, I joined their SOS program because I wanted to be guaranteed I could get their Cab Fanc. If you haven't been, find a way to get in!
We had the pleasure of staying at the guest cottage at Caldwell Winery. It was charming, warm, comfortable and exquisitely decorated. We enjoyed getting to know Joy Caldwell who has a knack for style and is a fabulous hostess. Our tour of the winery was outstanding. Brian was an unbelievable host who shared his passion of wine, his wit and... 更多
Upon arrival, Brian met us, had pictures with us, took us on a tour of the winery and then entertained us with stories of John Caldwell's youthful adventures while we enjoyed the tasting to include cold plates of lite bites. We all had such a delightful time with some of us still remaining in contact with Brian. While driving to... 更多
An incredible winery with fantastic hosts. It is rare to have an opportunity to sit down and taste wines with the owner and the vineyard's cooper. The two hour tasting flew by as we were all having a great time. My wife and I found the Caldwell wines to be some of our all-time favorites! Highly recommend making a stop... 更多
We stayed a week in Napa and tasted all day all week. This place stood out. Great view. Great cave tour. The tasting is expensive and so are the wines. Bryan Toy, the general manager led our tour and tasting. What an experience! We're wine lovers as well as fun lovers, and we had a a lot of fun with... 更多
This was our first stop in Napa and we arrived on a beautiful sunny day to a warm welcome from John Caldwell who delighted in taking the mickey out of us and our shiny red Mustang convertible! Bryan Toy led our tasting and the laid-back, chatty approach was a great introduction to the region. I learned a bit about wine... 更多
The stories of John the smuggler are legendary. His wines are becoming so as well. We had the opportunity to visit his property, taste some amazing wines in his cave, and hear the stories from the legend himself. I loved Rocket Science and all of the others. We bought a bunch. If you can arrange it...you have to go.
