  • Artesa is a must do if you are looking for a beautiful scenic view to compliment your wine tasting. Sitting outside overlooking the valley is expense but worth every penny. Andrew is the man.  more »

  • Beautiful landscape and tasting room. Visited last year on a sunny afternoon with friends. Had some great time sipping Chardonnay on the patio.
  • NOTE: please read the recent reviews because they've changed their rules and now it sucks. Really nice location, but boy do they waste it. Worth the drive up here but I wouldn't do a wine tasting here again. There's no where to sit, it's a terrible layout. You're not allowed to see the view unless you pay an exorbitant amount. We did the regular tasting that's $38. The first red they poured came from the end of the bottle and was way too little but the bartender couldn't be bothered to top it up to a regular tasting amount. It was barely three sips and the wine is mediocre at best. Their outdoor seating area is freezing cold with no sun, they need outdoor heaters. The only nice place to sit is in the "executive" lounge where you apparently need a reservation or something. Overall very disappointing experience. You should head over to Domaine Carneros instead, it's way better.
  • Katherine was amazing. Views were breathtaking. Bought a Pinot that was delicious! Definitely recommend!
  • A friend and I were at Artesa a couple weeks ago. It was a GREAT experience, from start to finish. Everyone was kind. Alvaro was our host, and he was wonderful. He went into great detail about each wine, telling us what foods it should be paired with, and he was quite entertaining. The facility is beautiful inside and out, from the architecture to the views. I don't know how someone could negatively review this place. Research the options online before going, make a reservation, and plan. You pay for what you get, and Artesa surpassed my expectations for the money paid. We even became club members and got a discount on our bill! Artesa made our Saturday one of the best EVER. Thank you!
  • We have been going to Artesa for years. We brought some friends this time and we were told they had changed their procedures to drink their wine. We could no longer drink wine on the terrace without paying $68 per person. We could sit inside at the old tasting room for $58 per person. Or stand at high tops for free. There was also a courtyard that was usually reserved for "club members." Very tacky. It went from our most favorite winery to our least favorite and we told them that when we left. They did not appear concerned. Go elsewhere until they change. This was the only place we experienced such gouging. Try Domaine Carneros across the road some two minutes. Great view and great wine.

Where to stay in Napa

To explore North America's largest wine-growing region and remain close to fine dining and shopping, consider staying at a bed and breakfast located in downtown Napa. Many centrally located inns offer spacious rooms with fireplaces, free Wi-Fi, and on-site swimming pools. If you don't mind splurging, consider staying at one of the wine valley's lavishly furnished villas, many of which feature private lakes and access to a network of scenic hiking trails. You can also go all out at a luxury resort located in a picturesque vineyard setting.
