  • If you’re looking for a wine tasting experience that can also include a great Italian deli lunch then head over to V Sattui Winery. There is plenty to enjoy, both wine and food. It’s easy to see why.....  more »
  • This winery is overcrowded and the tasting was rushed like a production facility. Wine is below average. We all wished we had skipped this one  more »
  • I first came to Sattui in 2008 for my honeymoon. My husband and I fell in love. We joined the wine club but I wasn't able to physically return until 2016 and 2017. Both times, were pleasant experiences, although I noticed they had grown A LOT since then and were a lot busier. Which is good, right? Anyway, I always recommended their wines, and my father made it a point to stop at Sattui during a cross country road trip with my brother from Cali to Virginia in 2014. My father ended up loving their wines as well and proudly ordered cases from them up until 2019. In January of 2019, he special ordered a case with the intention of gifting a bottle to my brother and his new fiancee. There was as mix up with shipping and the bottle didn't make it in time (even tho he had ordered it with plenty of time allotted). My brother was already on a plane back to Florida (we live in Virginia), so he didn't get the gift from our dad. When my dad complained about the mix up, I noticed his complaint was pretty much dismissed. I was a part of this whole process so this review is FIRST HAND, btw. Granted, Stacey didn't realize the back story, and yes...these things happen, but my father has been a loyal customer for years now. My father passed away unexpectedly in March of 2019, therefore he won't be there to see my brother get married. I decided to call Sattui to ask them for wine recommendations for a wedding gift, and I guess I felt sharing some of the back story would be nice, since there is some sentimental value behind it (and I do honestly LOVE their wines). Angie sounded like she couldn't be bothered. She gave me her recommendation as to which wines would age the best (thanks, good info), but she really seemed like she just wanted to get off the phone. This, unfortunately, has turned me off completely. Sattui makes great wine, but I guess the word is out so now it's all about the sale, especially after perusing some more recent reviews. Any intention I had of continuing to order from them is gone. Any desire to visit them, is now gone. It's disappointing, and I know my patronage will not be missed by them (they definitely make enough), but I am grateful to know there are other wineries out there who truly do value their customers, and it is those wineries that will continue to get my business. I just wish my dad was here so I could recommend these other places to him, too.
  • Had a outdoor family picnic at V Sattui this afternoon with some food from their deli and a bottle of wine! It was fun and wonderful! A great place to have friends and family come here to meet and chat! The price of the wine is reasonable but the return home traffic are terrible ! Next time we will try to get out before 2:00 PM or after 7:00PM!
