Founded by Dan and Margaret Duckhorn in 1976, Duckhorn Vineyards has been crafting classic Napa Valley wines for nearly 40 years. This winemaking tradition has grown to include seven meticulously farmed Estate vineyards, located throughout the various microclimates of the Napa Valley. Focused on quality and consistency, these Estate vineyards are an essential element in making wines of distinction. Pioneering and perfecting Merlot as a premium varietal, Duckhorn Vineyards now makes several elegant Merlot and distinctive Cabernet Sauvignon bottlings that showcase its premium vineyard sites. In addition, the winery is known for its acclaimed Sauvignon Blancs. With the 2006 vintage, Duckhorn Vineyards unveiled The Discussion, a Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend representing the pinnacle of the Duckhorn Vineyards estate vineyards. In 2014, we introduced our first Napa Valley Chardonnay.

One of the best tasting experiences ever! Here's some breakdown of Duckhorn: -Appointment based on Weekends and suggested for Weekdays -$30/person = Profolio Tasting (5 Current Release Wines) -$60/person = Estate Tasting (semi-private @ 10am, noon and 2:30pm) -$75/person = Private Tasting (Private, 11AM) *more you pay = more privacy and more estate/reserved wines After Duckhorn, I've had a change of heart for sit-town, table staffed tasting. Jessica (our hostess) elevated our tasting experience from beginning to end. She was personable and knowledgeable about Duckhorn's history and wines. Their entire tasting room oozes with charm, open windows, and wraparound porches. Instead of being overcrowded and feeling a busy bar, my tasting experience felt like a private tasting instead. Duckhorn is well known for their Cabernet and Chardonnay, but they also have plenty of Merlot, Cab Franc, Zin-blends, Semillon, Sauvingon Blanc, and Petit Verdot. My FAVS: 2013 Duckhorn Vineyards Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc (Easy everyday sipping wine, Light and Crisp) Winemaker Notes "Both crisp and complex, this lovely Sauvignon Blanc displays enticing aromas of grapefruit, summer melon, lemongrass and lime zest with subtle hints of boxwood and Mandarin orange. Though it is crisp and refreshing from start to finish, there is a richness to the mid-palate that supports the vibrant fruit with a note of flinty minerality adding nuance and depth." 2010 Duckhorn Vineyards Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (So Velvet and Smooth....can I please have more???) *Production Notes Varietal Content 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1.5% Merlot, 1.5% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot Cooperage 100% French oak château-style barrels (60 Gallons) Barrel Aging: 24 Months Age of Barrels: 95% New, 5% Second Vintage *Winemaker Notes "As it is year after year, this is a big, beautifully structured mountain wine that promises to richly reward patient cellaring. On the nose, it offers complex aromas of wild blueberry, bay laurel, pencil lead, menthol and cassis. Youthful mountain tannins add firmness to the palate, while underscoring flavors of ripe cherry, blackberry preserves, black currant, pink peppercorn, wildflowers and holiday spice." To this day, I'm still tempted to join their Duckhorn's Wine Club. Free shipping if you're a member at Duckhorn, but no discount unless you buy the case. The trick is to mix and match a case with some of their other labels that has a lower price point. Money Saving Tip: 2 for 1 Coupon avaliable on Winery Finder App. Thanks Duckhorn, see you soon....till next time, Santé!

Duckhorn is a must stop-and-see (and taste!) in the Napa Valley. Their gorgeous tasting room is located in an estate home nestled amongst vineyards. They offer seated tastings inside their tasting room or outside on the wrap around porch overlooking vineyards or in their beautiful gardens. You'll enjoy a relaxed and comfortable setting with personal attention from one of their wine educators. Taste wine, nibble on charcuterie, and learn about each unique wine in peaceful surroundings. Be sure to try their Merlot, it's what they're known for!

They are only allowed do to tastings, not tours because of licenses. Kind of on the pricey side for a tasting for each person. Make sure to check the Winery Finder App for deals, or you can share a tasting. Tasting is done on the patio are which was nice. Good wines. We preferred the Decoy Cab.
