I had a reservation, so I knew I would be welcomed, but was surprised to see a chalkboard with my name on it waiting for me at a beautiful table overlooking their vineyards. The wines were great, the tasting room staff was very conversational and provided some great insight into their wines, where the grapes were grown and were just... More

This is a great place to bring friends or family for a real taste of what a Napa winery should be like. Its not this commercialized winery where you have buses pouring in with boat loads of people. Its a quiet setting with with a fantastic view of the vineyard the service is amazing and the knowledge of wines is... More

Biale is a winery specializing in Zinfandels. Our host Pat was incredibly! He was friendly, educating, and wanted us to have an enjoyable time. My dad owns a restaurant and Pat recently sold his so they hit it off talking shop. Pat knows and understands what he is selling. He even brought out dirt for us to smell to help... More

While most of Napa tore up their Zinfandel vines in the 80's after they learned they could make cabs and charge a lot more for them, Biale stayed the course. As a result of this, you get a vineyard that is uniquely different than most of their neighbors. The staff is friendly and not at all pretentious. They enjoy educating... More

We were treated very well on our private, reserved tasting. Biale has a rich and colorful history. We love their Black Chicken signature Zin, now they have a clean and fun chicken coop with black chickens strutting around! Nice shaded outdoor seating within a few feet of the vines.

Another winery (Donna at Sherwin Family Vineyards) referred us to Biale Vineyards as we were looking for one that produced some nice zins. You do need to make an appointment for a wine tasting. Our tasting host was Bill who was very personable and informative. We totally enjoyed spending 2 hours talking and enjoying their great wines with him. Their... More
