Lots of construction going on with an expansion work. The tour was very nice & we enjoyed the wines. The sampling was a bit pricey though $25 each.

You can find Cakebread Chardonnay on wine lists all across the country but you’ll need to visit the winery if you want to discover all of their wines. Not to be missed are small production Cabs: Benchlands and Dancing Bear will blow your mind. Excellent...More

Have always enjoyed Cakebread wines since it’s early years. Not too sure if they are just getting too big. Lots of construction going on with more Visitor area being built. Many smaller wineries to go to. Only opinion as many enjoy stopping here
