Visit and Enjoy a Selection of Our Wines

Due to renovation work, Shafer Vineyards will be closed to tasting visits and walk-in sales Nov 2 - 30.
We're excited about the updates to our visitor and hospitality areas and look forward to hosting visitors in our newly transformed surroundings. The most reliable way to communicate with the winery during this period will be email. Please feel welcome to contact us at:

By prior appointment only
Monday through Friday (no weekends or holidays)
10:00 am and 2:00 pm (please arrive 10 minutes prior for a 90-minute visit)
10 seat maximum per sit-down tasting available
Five wines including our signature wine Hillside Select
$85 per person seated in the tasting room, independent of wine purchases, charged at the time of reservation
We are pleased to offer a special thank-you to those who are passionate Shafer supporters. If your name is currently active on our Hillside Select List and have purchased three or more bottles of your Hillside Select offering in the past year, or if you have purchased six or more bottles of Shafer wine annually from our Napa Valley List*, then the tasting fee is waived for you and one member of your party for two tasting visits per year. (This courtesy is non-transferable.)
To receive a refund please give us 48 hours notice.
It is always a good idea to call a few days ahead of your visit to check on which wines are available and on their respective per-bottle purchase limits, as these do change throughout the year.

We cannot allow anyone under the age of 21, which includes infants and children. Likewise, we cannot allow pets.


Retail sales of currently available wines are offered Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Because we only offer tastings by appointment, we do not provide tastings as part of the sales process.

*The Napa Valley List offers the following Shafer wines each year: Red Shoulder Ranch® Chardonnay, TD-9®, One Point Five® Cabernet Sauvignon, and Relentless®.

Request a Tasting Visit

A tasting visit at Shafer is relaxed and conversational; it’s about enjoying wine and each others company. In that spirit we only sit down to taste wines with ten or fewer guests at a time.

Please remember that the best way to secure a spot is to contact us six to eight weeks in advance.

Please note that this is a request for a tasting visit. We will contact you as soon as possible with official confirmation.
