This was probably my top 2 or 3 vineyard I visited out of the 9 we went to last week. We did the cave tour & tasting. I did not realize that the whole tour was going to be in the cave! Pretty cool. A lot of good information and history. Usually the best time to visit wine country is the fall because of harvesting (all the action), but we managed to see some action. They were bottling 2012 Chardonnay, so we got to see the bottling machine in action, and the ladies putting on the labels by hand. Never knew that sparkling could be so enjoyable. Try it out. Also, the wine tasting was by candlelight, which was pretty cool.
This was by far my favorite wine tour during my visit to the Napa region. The tour guide was extremely knowledgable, entertaining and passionate about Schramsberg and just wine in general. The cave tour was fascinating, with riddling racks and demos, history of the vineyard and region, and in depth explanations regarding the wine making process. While the tour was a little pricey, it was well worth $60. This is a must-do if you are a wine enthusiast (even if you are not a sparkling wine fan)!
Something of a hidden secret in Napa, Schramsberg provides the kind of winery tour that doesnt really exist in other places that are now swarmed by tourists. You have to make an appointment quite far in advance but its absolutely worth it. The groups are kept fairly small and its an extremely informative presentation about the techniques and history of sparkling wine. The caves are fascinating, the wines are excellent and even walking through the gardens adds to the experience.
Even if youre not the type to go to wineries by appointment, make an exception for Schramsberg. I believe it is $30, and you must have a reservation, but it is worth the trouble. You will be rewarded with a super-informative tour through the caves, where they truly do everything old-school, and taste probably the finest sparkling wine in the U.S. Dont miss this one.

This is the best winery my wife and I visited. It was an excellent tour of the caves and how they store the wine for aging. Amazing to say the least. The tour guide was excellent. I highly recommend taking this tour as the $25 is well worth the expense. Be careful driving in as the road has only room for one car at different places. 10-2-2007
I know these are sparkling wines and therefore more expensive, but for the 2-stop tour, $65 per person seems a bit high! My husband loved every one. Very educational tour guide and very helpful in suggesting other places in Napa to see. You get to see massive caves and hear about the process of good science in wine making.
Joe took us around through the caves and it was amazing. This is by far the best tour in the region. I thought I wasnt a sparkling wine kind of guy but I just never had the "Good Stuff" The J schram sparkling wine is just spectacular. Cant wait to have another taste. JOE thank you for a great time!
Been to 5 different vineyards and this one was our favorite!! AMAZING experience, OUTSTANDING tour! Shoutout to Brittany - she made the experience for us! If you want good info, interesting history, and incredibly champagne, then go here!!
If you were there a few weeks ago and got annoyed by the foursome singing "Tiny Bubbles" loudly, my apologies. We love Schramsberg! The tour was lovely and informative and the sparkling wines were amazing. Highly recommended!
A fine sparkling wine. The cave tour was amazing. The staff is friendly and they make the tour a wonderful educational experience. Great place. They also have a great still wine.
Nice little hidden gem in Napa Valley. The sparkling wines are exquisite and one of my go to wines. Just signed up to their wine club and cant wait for their first shipment.
Class act! Wonderful tour - informative and interesting, amazing caves full of bottles rather than barrels. Beautiful tasting location. Loved it, just like Cabs better!
If youre looking for an hour long lecture on irrelevant wine history you have to visit Schramsberg! Lovely setting but my goodness it was boring.
A must-visit on your wine tasting tour! Friendly, knowledgeable staff and a visit to the caves made this the highlight of our day.
Incredible site, very well preserved. Hidden and out of the way, the drive up to the winery transports you through time.
One of the better organized and informative tours about sparking wines - although a little pricy.
Best tasting and tour in napa. The caves are amazing and there was a friendly cat outside.
Americas finest sparkling wine. Their Davies still wines are affordable, hidden gems!
Best experience, amazing wine and staff! A must go!
Best cellar tour in the area. Great wines too.
Plain and simple this place kicks butt!
