Very interesting winery with strong Italian roots, producing a great tasting Nebbiolo and Super Tuscan. Had a delicious lunch as part of the GrapeLine tour. They have an outdoor area that can be setup for small weddings and their cask room can accommodate a small reception. The guide on our winery tour told us that on certain days, they will let you taste the wine straight from the fermenting vats. The wine club gives some decent discounts, especially if you buy in quantity.

St. Supery is a great place to take guests who want to take in California sunshine and great wine. The grounds around the winery make for an amazing walk. There's a beautiful farm house on the property that gives you a nice view of what old Napa looked like. Inside, there's a self-guided tour where you learn more about what goes into the varietals and you can see St. Supery's casks as the staff works away in the warehouse.
There's a private room where you can set up tastings for large groups and at the end of the walking tour, you arrive at the tasting room, which is incredibly intimate and yet unpretentious. I thought the staff was incredibly helpful and well-informed about the surroundings, giving us a great lunch recommendation nearby (Rutherford Grill). I highly recommend the Sauvingnon Blanc, which is the best I've had in Napa.

The winery was very laid back and relaxing. The staff was very attentive and interacted with us. All of the wine was great and we were offered full glass samples at no charge. They also have a great store that sells cheese, meats, etc. We bought some snacks and had a great picnic on the property.

The owner/winemaker creates some of the best wines in the Sierra Foothills and the tasting experience, with frequent barrel tastings, is always enjoyable. The winemaker, Robert, along with his father (during the half of the year when he visits from the Netherlands) engage visitors at a personal level, while also being highly knowledgeable about all aspects of winemaking & enjoyment.

Great Vintage Brut. Also pinots, chardonnay, dessert wines and others...all in a spectacular setting with an outside terrace for basking in the warm sunshine. Stanford alums may enjoy knowing that owner, Judy Jordan, played on Stanford's 1981 NCAA championship tennis team.
