V. Sattui Winery
This family-run winery has aged tastefully. V.Sattui makes a variety of Chardonnays, and boasts its yield for Johannisberg Reisling, both with and without dry styles. And, when it comes to White Zinfandel, V. Sattui is undoubtedly the best in California. Rosato is another wonderfully sensual wine with a hint of cranberry and strawberry, that imparts a mixed aroma of plum and cherry. So when you visit this place, rest assured you'll enjoy every sip to the fullest.
I can, often times, enter an establishment in a sour mood and allow this mood to reflect my opinion of said place. V. Sattui actually reversed a bad day into great. The service was exceptional, the wines were exactly what my wife and I were looking for, and other than the slight wait to render our purchases, the visit was easily a 'ten'. I understand no place can be everything to everyone, but as for us, V. Sattui managed to satisfy.
V. Sattui Winery has really gone down hill recently while their prices have become quite high. Their wine has become barely palatable over the last several years, while other Napa wineries have consistently made great wine. The staff is rude and the not helpful. There really are much nicer wineries to spend you cash. The place is a looser.
This was one of my favorite wineries until today. I clicked on Twitter this Monday morning and noticed they were giving 20% off of 2 off their most popular wines (chenin blanc and gamay) so myself and a few of my friends headed on over there (not close to my house by the way.) After buying several bottles of wine and asked why we did not get the discount, the wine representative noted that it's only by the case. I told him that there was no mention of "per case" on Twitter. so he put me in contact w/ Claudia , the vp of marketing. She was of no help and referred me the the website. I told her that on Twitter alone it just said "20% " off and again made no mention of the case price. Her response was" well, did it mentioned that it was "per bottle"?" I said no and again, told her I was not computer savvy and did not know I have to to go her website. She said that if I went to the website, then I wound find details (after several click) to the 20% discount for the case only. Now, I am really not too bothered by getting the money back as to Ms Claudia's attitude about my situation. I told her that me and my friends travelled far to visit the winery and that she should have put the "per case" on the twitter page prior to our coming as to not mislead us. I have paid lots per bottle of wine and a few bucks is really not a problem. But when a company misrepresents itself and falsely advertise on a big name site like Twitter to lure customers, well, that it's just plain wrong. 9 hours later after returning home, I checked Twitter again, and found that they put in () " per case" ..after my complaint. I wish Ms Claudia was a bit nicer and not so robotic. In this day and age of doing business, you wound thing of all people, the vp of marketing wound be more understanding to the needs of the customers. Unfortunately for V Sattui, this was not the case. We have learned our lesson and know where to put out $$ next time...and it will not be V Sattui
It was my first time there, It is a favorite place of my niece who lives in CA. We had a great time and came home with two boxes of our favorite wines. The people doing the pouring where extremely freindly and the one older guy that was pouring for us was really funny. He introduced us to his son who also works there. Well be going back again on my next trip to CA. We still place orders and have them shipped direct to us. I think they know my niece by name we order often with them. GREAT PLACE.
V. Sattui was gorgeous. The wine was great and they had a great cheese selection. There 2005 merlot is my favorite wine. You better go in person because your only other option is to buy V. Sattui online.
I visited this winery with some friends in 2007, and it was alright. It has a good tasting room and of course a big selection of wines.
However, the summer crowds were unbearable. I plan on finding a less crowded winery at which to enjoy an afternoon when I return.
This place was divine! So much so, we went back for a second trip while we were in Napa Valley. The wine was superb, the staff was extremely knowledgeable and courteous, and the grounds, ah, the grounds are heaven. The shop not only sells wine along with the kitschy winery accessories, but they have a full fledged deli/formaggeria where you can buy lunch and sit outside to enjoy your wine, lunch and the wonderful Napa air. You MUST see this place if you visit Napa. You can't get their wine ANYWHERE but at the winery...and they have won best wine 3 years running in a row!!! Seriously...GO.
