Poor guide, great facility
Feb 2020 • Couples
The Facility was incredible. It is a beautiful place and an impressive operation. Our guide didn’t appear to be very interested in being there. Maybe he had a bad day, but it was a poor effort on his part that left us both wishing we had skipped this tasting.

Truly amazing Napa Valley wine experience
Oct 2019
We just visited Napa last week and had already mapped out where we were planning to go, though we had a little time to add something if we wanted. Usually, when we visit a winery, we ask our guide about their favorite vineyards, other than their own. Time after time, people were mentioning Palmaz, one that I had never heard of before. Turns out that it was built by the physician that invented the heart stent. And, he ended up building some much unique technology into this endeavor. The first mind boggling feature is their 18 story deep cave that allows them to bring their grapes into the main level and then everything is gravity fed down to the fermenting tanks and then eventually to the barrels. Pretty amazing. Then they showed us the technology used to monitor the fermentation process that includes a heads-up display projected on the curved walls above the tanks. This shows a whole series of measurements that monitor the environment inside the tanks so they can then make adjustments, when necessary. All of this technology means nothing though unless the resulting wine. And, it wasn't good...it was truly great. I am very impressed and we ended up joining their club.

Exceptional Experience!
Oct 2019
Adrian was our tour guide and he handled our large group of 11 college friends so graciously! He was so well versed in the operation and processes of the winery. This winery is one of the most unique in the world with the blending of wine making and technology. The tasting and pairing of hors d'oeuvres was really special! The facility is very clean, bright and beautiful. The grounds are extraordinary! A must see in Napa!

A Great Place to spend/learn about wine making.
Oct 2019
The Palmaz family has done a wonderful job and creating this experience. The guide we had was very knowledgeable about the winery and the wine experience. Showing the extent that technology has integrated with the wine industry..... amazing too say the least. Wine presentation was excellent. A GREAT afternoon.

More Than A Pleasant Surprise
Oct 2019
We see lots of wineries. Some are “acceptable”, some are “enjoyable” and then there are some that you never forget. We will never forget or fail to visit Palmaz. Very worth your time.

Fabulous
Sep 2019 • Couples
We always enjoy the Palmaz experience and this time was fantastic. The tasting experience is unique and well worth the time to learn more about the process this family follows to produce great wines. The 2015 cab is both drinkable today and frankly seems like it would cellar for 10 or 20 years.

Simply Stunning - Wine Making Collides with Technology
Aug 2019
This is definitely a one of a kind winery in Napa Valley, maybe in the world. Set in a amazing hillside location, no expense seems to be overlooked for producing great wines. It certainly helps if you enjoy incredibly red wines, but if you care as much for the story as you do the wine, then this is a winery you should visit. The winery is located in the side of the mountain with at least 5 levels. Everything flows down hill so that gravity does the work of pumps. Technology tracks everything complete with a control center that graphically displays on the walls and ceilings on one of the floors so that the winemaker and helpers can digitally monitor everything. It's very James Bond-ish looking. And the wine is stunning. Expensive mind you, but just the tasting tour with the personal tour should give you an experience like no others. Thank you Trey for your time and your knowledge of how and what Palmaz has accomplished. Hats off to the family that is keeping the tradition of this winery flourishing.

Lovely vineyard

For science and wine lovers alike, this is quite an impressive place to visit. While I am not a red wine lover, the place was still quite fun and the food was fabulous.
