I had an amazing time at Tamber Bey Vineyards! The drive in is majestic with all the beautiful horses. I had no idea it was also a horse sanctuary! Lovely surroundings to taste wine in. We were greeted by Dawn, who enthusiastically explained what we would be experiencing. Then Barry joined us for our wine and cookie pairing. So delicious and unexpected! The tour of the property was fun and educational, especially if you have any interest in how wine is made and stored. Barry is clearly very passionate about what he does, and it shows in the wines. They are all versatile and complex, while easy to drink and enjoy! Sipping on wine and watching horses gallop around is a unique experience to be enjoyed by all!

I had an amazing time at Tamber Bey Vineyards! Our experience began with a wine tasting and cookie pairing. This is something that I have never tried and it was delicious. The owner then joined us and took us on a tour of the vineyards where we learned about the wine making process and how their wine differs from other wineries. It felt as if we were going backstage on a movie set-he showed us wine making and aging processes that I’ve never seen before! I have done several winery tours and I learned so much more at Tamber Bey. Everyone there is so knowledgeable and are experts in the field. They made us feel like family!
Overall, the property is beautiful and relaxing. It was fun to have a girls day, sit back and watch the horses while sipping on some truly exquisite wines! The views of Calistoga and the nearby mountains have me longing to go back!

Absolutely loved this experience! Perfect for anyone looking to have a unique wine experience in Napa. I left feeling like I knew so much more about grape growing, wine making, and even a bit about horses. And the cookie pairing was my favorite part – I’ll definitely be back again!
