Jessup Cellars

Jessup Cellars offers walk-in tastings year round at the bar but if you know you are going there, I would recommend booking their Wine & Cheese Pairing or Chocolate Lover’s Experience!

Jessup Cellars is known for their red blends and as the friendliest & most knowledgeable tasting room in Napa Valley. They will make sure to make the pairing as educational or laid back as you would like! The tasting takes place inside their art gallery curated by resident artist Cynthia Carey.

Keplinger

Ty of Kelinger Wines was a gracious and humble host who made me feel like I was tasting wine in his living room. The tasting room, located in downtown Napa next to Cadet Wine Bar, is quaint and cozy, allowing full attention from Ty who eagerly answered all of our questions with assuredness. Most of the wines we tried were made from grapes out of Amador (the legendary Shakeridge Vineyard) and boasted equally of richness and elegance. The cabernet was sourced from Oakville Ranch, and it was the epitome of balance and precision while its mouthfeel was super rich. It was insightful to hear about Helen Keplinger’s background before launching her own wines, as she has worked with several legendary properties and winemakers, including Heidi Barrett. I definitely plan on making another visit soon.

Gamling and McDuck

Cabernet Franc and Chenin Blanc lovers! This is a must stop in town. Small tasting room, passion pours out of every bottle with a one on one tasting experience or simply sit back & relax with a glass. Very chill & friendly with a touch of je ne sais quoi!
