Excellent Cabernet and Zinfandel. We have been members of several wine clubs over the years and Laura's is the one club we have kept for 15 years now. Laura and Michael know their red wines! Just remember that you can't find this fine wine in you local wine store.

The Cab and Zin are literally the best wine I have ever tried. Great small family wine, the quality of the wine is great. My favorite winery in the valley. The 2006 cab is a must buy!!!! Can't wait to go back again!!!

First of all, we were extremely fortunate to have used the Calistoga Passport to experience wine tastings. Our first stop was at Laura Michael Winery and it proved to be a wise move. Our palates were fresh. My wife, who is not overly fond of Cabs really enjoyed each of the ones we tried. As a Cab lover I was... More

Laura Michael turned out to be our favorite stop in Calistoga. Jim spent 1 1/2 hours one-on-one with us. We tasted several wines, all which were very good. Took 2 bottles home, including a port that the guys really loved. Jim took as much time as we wanted answering questions about the wine and the vineyards, wine-making, and grape-growing.

Had a really nice time this morning talking about the farming of the grapes. Got to meet Laura, Michael, and their two sweet dogs. Definitely a fun stop for a few different Zinfandels and a really unique port, though the Cab was a favorite. All of the wines were smooth, which is impressive for 100% varietals. A lot of care....

Laura herself poured her wines and gave me quite an understanding of her views on winemaking and what makes her wines so unique. The cabs she poured were considerably older than most, and, overall, her taste in wines matched my own so I really liked them. She poured whites, rose, reds, and a port.

As the many other reviews mentioned, Jim is very informative and made the visit, great! It is very intimate and has a small picnic area. The wines are very good as well. We have been to many wineries on both coasts and this was one of our most enjoyable!

We stopped in at Laura Michael as it was referred to us by many locals we spoke to. We visited Sterling Vineyard prior. My wife and I much preferred Laura's. We were greeted by two friendly dogs and made our way to the tasting room where we met Tim. Tim was friendly and very knowledgable being patient in explaining the... More

Great little winery with high quality low production wines. Wines are not in general distribution. Old world style, I bought a 2009 Cab which is easily one of the best wines I have ever tasted. Tasting fee is $10 per person and is waived with a wine purchase. If you get the the chance, stop in, fabulous wine and very... More
