    One of the best kept secret in Napa Valley. Reasonable Tasting fee and reasonable prices of wines, yet their quality is gorgeous.

    My husband and I joined Lola Wines in May (after tasting there a few times). The wine is excellent and reasonably priced. The hosts are very knowledgeable and personable. The setting is intimate and beautiful, inside and out, and they are dog friendly. Seth and Rafa, the winemaker and his wife, aren't always there, but if you're lucky enough to meet them, you will be charmed. We love Lola!

    LOLA a small winery with an interesting origin story and excellent wines. A great mix of varietal wines that are familiar and not so familiar. Our host Jarred was relaxed, fun and most importantly knowledgeable. I highly recommend visiting.

    It was a great experience, with a relaxed environment. The music was relaxing an unobtrusive, so conversation was easy. The staff were attentive and thoughtful. They timed the tastings so that there was plenty of space but also finished in time to make it to the next location on time. Very knowledgeable and gave interesting information about the establishment and the wine.

    Rafa, the co-owner spent two hours with me and other quests, describing the wines, and the exceptional foods (tastes, not heapings) and it was all remarkable. They make wines no one else makes, they are a low-key, family operation and I hope word doesn't get around so much it spoils the wonderful atmosphere.

    I made reservations for my husband’s birthday. We both like wine but usually don’t branch out to taste different wines. I thought it would be a nice experience while staying in calistoga for the weekend. We absolutely enjoyed our time at Lola’s- from the lovely outdoor tasting area, the pleasant and informative conversation with our wine host and the great wine! We were there almost two hours and we could have stayed longer! They also surprised my husband with a birthday song and cupcake which made his day. Can’t say enough about how much we loved the experience. We’ll definitely be coming back!

    Where to start. Nestled alongside the road outside of Napa is the LOLA Winery. We are not wine coneiseurs by any means, so we were honestly expecting some pretentious sommelier that would think we couldn't appreciate what they had to offer, considering how highly reviewed LOLA is. It couldn't have been further from the truth. Our wine tasting was a casual, yet intimate experience essentially in the beautiful back patio of someone's home. We were treated as good friends at a dinner party with a host that knew everything there was to know about the wine they were serving. Each wine we had was fantastic. The Chennin Blanc could only be described as "gluggable", perfect for after work, relaxing at home. The Pinot Noir was floral and delicate. The Cabernet was fruity, smoky, and not too sweet. I basically only drink beer and whiskey. I'm really into microbrews and I'm dedicated enough to try thousands of them. I don't even like wine, but this changed my mind. I'd happily go back tomorrow.

    Came to Calistoga/Napa Valley to learn more about wine and Lola Wines' tasting room/patio was an awesome, fun, and informational experience. Our wine expert, Maria (not sure how to spell their name, sorry!) was phenomenal. They took their time walking us through each of their wines thoroughly and in short was just a great time sitting in Lola Wine's dope patio on that cool, sunny early afternoon, drinking great wine!
