Right off the highway is an attractive redwood-barn-style winery building with a shaded porch, nearby herb and vegetable gardens, olive trees, and -- in its own small shed -- the Cakebread Produce Center.
As you enter the complex of buildings, notice the glass-walled, wine club tasting room to your left. Continue through the building to the outdoor area and you will find the barrel room tasting area. All tasting is by appointment, with many tasting programs to choose from, including the Educational Tour and Tasting, the Wine-and-Food Pairing Experience, and the Sensory Evaluation Tasting Program.
Cakebread Cellars has vineyard properties located throughout Napa Valley, and recently added a location in the Anderson Valley. The winery owns 13 sites totaling 420 acres, 340 of which are planted. Their philosophy is to produce high-quality wines that complement healthy food.
The winery hosts an annual food-and-wine event known as the American Harvest Workshop. First developed as a working forum at which sommeliers, chefs and food producers could interact with key members of the media and business world, this event focuses on developing programs to promote and improve the quality, availability and marketability of American wine and food.
Cakebread Cellars produces a wonderful array of wines including Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and occasionally Pinot Noir and Syrah.
