Why V. Sattui Winery is #1 in Napa Valley
This is the most popular and most visited winery in all of Napa. No appointment is required for summer months, but in the winter months best to make an appointment. V. Sattui continues to evolve and upgrade their guest experiences, recently adding a Concierge Service designed to custom tailor visits based on guest preferences. It’s a top favorite because they offer old world Italian charm, more than 60 different wines, champagne and ports, vast picnic grounds, personalized winery and barrel tasting tours, food pairings, a legendary deli with fresh foods, cheeses and a friendly, knowledgeable, well trained staff. It’s one of the few wineries that consistently achieves top awards for their wines crafted by noted Winemaker, Brooks Painter who joined V. Sattui in 2005 from Robert Mondavi Winery.
