Our favorite winery in this area.
May 2021
This facility was still only partially open due to Covid, not offering tasting without reservations and not providing tours of the winery. We were allowed to enter the gift shop and purchase their products which we did. The price of wine at this shop is quite good compared to regular liquor stores.

Even though we weren't able to tour the facility, we were quite happy we could purchase their products at a reduced price.

Wonderful Wine Tasting Experience
Oct. 2020
We had been passing the Sutter Home Winery several times while going to different wineries during the week we were in Napa. The sign always said "Closed". Finally, on Saturday (the last day we were there) it said "Open". We stopped in thinking since they had been closed for so long, people would not yet know that they were open, and we might be able to get a wine tasting without a reservation. At first we were told there was no way we could get a wine tasting without a reservation. They said the next opening was on Thursday. When we told them that we had to leave to go back home the next day, they changed their mind and said we could get a tasting immediately! We were very happy they decided they could accommodate us. After getting a normal tasting, we mentioned we would be interested in joining their wine club. After that, they gave us tastings of any wine that we wanted to taste. They didn't even charge for any of the tastings. We did join the wine club. They gave us a special price of $10.00 for shipping. Since we joined the wine club, we got the bottles we ordered at a discounted price, which made up for the shipping cost. We had been to a lot of wineries while we were in Napa, and all the other wineries wanted us to order more than $100 worth of wine, plus pay for shipping to join their wine club. Sutter Home charged us less than $60 for 8 bottles of wine, including shipping. We paid more than that for some of the wine tastings we attended!

Delightfully Friendly and Accessible Winery
Apr. 2019
This place puts all the "exclusive' wineries to shame.
The folks here are knowledgeable and professional, but they are also friendly and personable, which was much appreciated.
The basic tasting is free - your heard right - and the wines are very tasty. We had our first white zinfandel, which they apparently introduced.
We bought a lot of wine at a reasonable price,and had a great time. They also have a nice selection of gift items.
We missed out on the house tour because of maintenance.
The garden is very nice. We got some good ideas for fragrant rose varieties there.

Great wine, awesome staff!
Nov. 2019
This was easily my favorite stop in Napa Valley. It's basically a large shop with three tasting options. One was a free tasting with a good variety of 4 different wines, one was a list of 5 sweeter wines for $5, and the final tasting for $5 was a variety of specialty wines. Outside, there is an inn restricted to inn guests only but we were able to sit in the picturesque gazebo, explore the small rose garden, and check out the lovely koi pond. We decided to pop outside between each of our pours but you can park yourself inside for your tastings as well.

Shout out to Yesica who helped us with our tastings and was super helpful, informative, and friendly! She was key to our great visit!

The shop itself had a great variety of wines for purchase, including the Sutter Home mini bottles that I love! They had a couple packs of 16 mini-bottles-they should sell these everywhere! We opted to buy a regular bottle and build a couple 4-packs of mini bottles mixing and matching our favorite wines. We had just as much fun shopping as we did tasting.

Overall the vibe at Sutter home, is very comfortable, casual, and fun. We enjoyed ourselves and would definable recommend and return!

Unlike most of the wineries in the Napa Valley area Sutter Home still has a free tasting. You may also choose to upgrade to a $5 tasting to get some of their library and different wines. Are Hostess was exceptionally knowledgeable of the Sutter Home product. They subtract your $5 tasting fee if you purchase two or more bottles of their wine. The gift shop has a number of unique items that are moderately priced again compared to many of the other wineries in the Napa Valley area. You can book a tour to go on their mansion. But it does require Advance reservations.

Friendly Winery - Not Pretentious
Oct. 2019 • Friends
On our recent trip to Sonoma, this was my favorite winery. The wines were very affordable, the tastings were generous and the server gave us lots of explanation and good tips. This is the only winery we found that offered nonalcoholic wines for our pregnant designated driver! They had more than half a dozen of the nonalcoholic wines! The centerpoint of the grounds is a very well-kept turn of the century house surrounded by beautiful grounds with fragrant flowers, trees, benches and a fountain with koi and turtles. We were encouraged to take our wine as we strolled through the grounds, then we sat and enjoyed the peaceful gardens. Altogether, a beautiful Sonoma afternoon.

My absolute favorite Napa Valley Spot!
Sep. 2019
I accidentally stumbled across this gem while headed to another winery and I am very much glad that I did. Not only was the price great ($5 per tasting), but the selection, wines and staff were absolutely amazing. I will definitely be returning here on any and all future trips to Napa.

Our last stop that day at Napa valley. We found the wines very good, reasonably priced, and the tasting fee very reasonable too. Staff was polite and attentive. They have a good souvenir shop too.

Nice Experience
Aug. 2019
A landmark winery that is huge. Fortunately they serve reserve wines in their tasting room that are only sold there. The creator of white zinfandel.

There is a very nice gift shop in the tasting room with wine related items.
