Raymond Vineyard Description

Raymond Vineyards traces its family roots to the origins of winemaking in America's most fabled wine region. Embodying the spirit of the "Old Napa Valley", the Raymond family worked side-by-side to build their winery from the ground-up.

After arriving in the Napa Valley in 1933, marrying Martha Jane Beringer in 1936, and enjoying more than thirty-five years working in every facet of Beringer Winery, in 1970 Roy Raymond Sr., together with his sons Walter and Roy Jr., decided that it was their time to put their family name on the deep roots they'd laid in the Napa Valley.

Their first vintage crush in 1974 was emblematic of the early Napa Valley harvests: the family worked together, caring for every facet of the winery - hospitality to farming, fermentation, bottling and sales.

Wow! Cool! You got to see this!

Amazing tasting room full of Baccarat crystal and some really weird art. Don’t miss this. In addition to, or in spite of the spectacular tasting room, they have some great wines. The wines are served from Baccarat crystal carafes. (I have to confess I was too cheap to try their high-end wines, with a $30 tasting fee, which I assume were fabulous since there “low end” wines were very nice.) My favorite was the ’12 Ben Franklin blend which was 46% Merlot. It has a deep garnet color (although the tasting room was quite dark), a fruity tart citrus flavor of grapefruit with mild tannins and a very interesting finish; the ’12 Louis XIV had sweet aromas and a fantastic mouth feel and a huge berry flavor (almost “jammy) with hints of chocolate and slight acidic with warm tannins. Even their low end “wines are somewhat expensive.

This is by far my favorite winery in Napa. I can't say enough about it. We tasted eight or ten wines, and they were all phenomenal. I can't recommend highly enough trying one of their specialty tastings. We did the Gold Room experience and it was a blast. Kelly, the Curator of Luxury Experiences, introduced us to the JCB line that is absolutely out of this world. Try their Pinot Noir Rose - it's beyond delicious.

My husband and I just spent 11 days in Napa. We visited 38 wineries. Raymond winery is the only winery we visited twice! Our first tasting was done by Amanda the tasting room manager and she was so delightful, we took a friend back the next week. Unfortunately, Amanda was not there so the experience was not the same, but the wines were just as good and we managed to purchase another bottle of their Cabernet. a full bodied, smooth and very reasonably priced. They are in the midst of a very interesting "renovation" There is some interesting art work outside that gives the place character and worth a "go see"

I have always like Raymond wines and now that I finally got to visit their winery I like em even more. Lots to taste and choose from and after a day of tasting its nice to park myself on a stool and not have to lean into a tasting counter. Hey great Cabs here and a friendly place to visit.
