Failla's Tasting Room is by Appointment


Failla is a winery I always visit when I come to Napa. I love their cool weather wines. Additionally, their tasting staff is always extremely friendly, accommodating, professional, honest, and extremely knowledgeable. I consider Failla my home away from home for wine tasting

Tasting Lodge        $20/Person

Before enjoying a seated tasting in our Cave Hospitality area, we will take you on a walking tour of the property and our 15,000 square foot cave.  We will pour five wines--2 white, 3 red--during this 60 minute experience.  One tasting fee is waived for every two bottles purchased.

Spotlight Tour       $50/PERSON

Our private and most exclusive tasting, we customize each Spotlight to the individual.  We will pour six wines over the course of 75 minutes and focus on our single vineyard designates.  We suggest 2 white wines and 4 red wines, though we are happy to tailor this entirely to your specific interests.  One tasting fee is waived per 6 bottles purchased.

All those people who “end up” at Failla are certainly in for quite a treat.

Tasting Lodge


First-timers often enjoy a seated tasting in the Tasting Lodge itself. This choice tends to be the most social as we accommodate up to 8 people lounging on the cozy furniture as if attending a casual dinner party. Four wines are poured, typically one white and three reds, as an avid Failla Ambassador regales you with stories of the winery, property and history as well as our general philosophy about wine making.

During our copious warm months, we can accommodate parties greater than eight in our shaded Courtyard and smaller groups on our front porch.

The CAVE is absolutely fantastic, I was in awe.

Cave Tour & Tasting

The Cave Tour and Tasting adds a tour of our property and 15,000 square foot cave where you remain, in the grotto-like coolness, for a seated tasting of 5 current releases. This tasting is semi-private, with at most two groups to introduce to one another.

As we walk around the property we'll taste a few different Chardonnays and introduce you to our favorite concrete wine capsules.  If you visit during the Harvest months - August through October - you can get up close and personal with the winemaking team and possibly join us for a Harvest Lunch!

If you enjoy drinking limited production Chardonnay and Pinot Noir...then you’ll definitely want to visit this small winery...

Spotlight Tour & Tasting


The Private Spotlight Tasting, our most exclusive and intimate offering, is also conducted underground in the rustic chic lounge and focuses on our single vineyard designates.

We work with you to select 6 wines tailored to your specific interests, making this by far the most flexible tasting format we offer. When you book a Spotlight Tour & Tasting, the sky (or rather the shotcrete) is the limit as we invite you to compare Chardonnays across three different AVAs, taste various Pinots grown within mere miles of one another, or leave it to us to surprise you!
