There's a sign that reads something like, "The funnest winery in Napa Valley" or something to that effect, and if our experience was representative, it's true.
Our group of 6 included two "wine people" and 4 tag-alongs who know less about wine. We visted 6 wineries last Friday, this being our favorite. The staff was knowledgeable, friendly, unpretentious, and very personable.
Four of the 6 of us had been here before, and they said our great experience was as good as they had last year. So points for consistency.
The tasting room is small, so if there are crowds you may have to wait. But the grounds are beautiful (including a picnic area if you happen to have brought your own food) and the wines were quite good.
I would recommend making this a stop in your day.
