Jesse gave us a lively and informative walking tour of the grounds at Cakebread. I absolutely love the fact they have a garden on the premise and that the winery gives cooking classes. What a great success story this winery has from humble beginnings to what they are today. Jesse really taught us tons about the way Cakebread treats the land, the grapes and the wine.
We booked an 8 person tasting reservation in October for birthday celebrations and were paired with Jessie. She was personable, friendly and enthusiastic along with sharing all the Cakebread Origin stories. We highly recommend her for your tasting experience and were able to celebrate HER birthday there too! She wasn't pushy and it was a very enjoyable experience. She even let us taste the grapes! 10/10 would visit again when they finish the expansion of the visitors center!
