Go here if you like great cabs, a nice view and friendly service

Von Strasser specializes in cabs, so that's the majority of what you'll get in their tastings. We tried five of them during our cheese and wine pairing (BTW - the cheese plate... read more

Von Strasser specializes in cabs, so that's the majority of what you'll get in their tastings. We tried five of them during our cheese and wine pairing (BTW - the cheese plate was amazing) and ended up buying at least one of each. Also, they're moving their tasting room location within the next six months, so I'd recommend going soon... More

We go to Von strasser every time we are in the area. We have our favorite guide Kerri, who we always request and is now considered part of our family. Awesome wine, beautiful location and the sweetest wine host ever.

Based on a friend's recommendation we set up a private tasting at Von Strasser and immediately fell in love with the location, the server (Kerry Baxter) and the wines. Kerry did a great job explaining the different wines and vintages, sitting with us more than most servers do during wine tastings. We even got to meet the owner Rudy and... More

Knight Wine Tours scheduled visit during harvest. Clearly the highlight of the day. Tasted Great wines during private tasting and then allowed to watch harvest operations. Everyone was so friendly and wanted to show us wine making. Met owner. Wanted to jump in and help. For great wine and experience, make an appointment. Beautiful drive up mountain.

Another gem of a vineyard. We had a private tasting on the patio. The weather was wonderful and the views gorgeous. We were given a quick tour of the some of the wine making areas. Worth the drive up.

I only recently discovered Von Strasser's wines and I was amazed by how good some of their older wines were. So on our last trip to Napa, we booked an appointment to visit them... it was one of the best visits I had in Napa... The place is small and doesn't cater at all to buses, limos and the like......

This was the last stop of our day and it did not disappoint! We had reserved the wine and chocolate cave tasting and I would highly recommend it! The winery was small and intimate. You can tell its family owned and that they are proud of their winery and wine. Carrie was our guide and she provided us with quite... More

This was new stop for us on this trip. We made an appointment and sat out on the patio overlooking the vineyard. They are dog friendly, which our wiemi greatly appreciated. The reds were great but the surprise find was a white, called Gruner. We will definitely be back.
