Signorello Winery is small, privately-owned winery. They like to say it was born from a love of "the romantic side of winemaking; growing grapes, working the land, and enjoying the wine country lifestyle." according to their website, 

Pair the Signorello family's love of wine with their love of food, and this small place is excellent.

Add the view, and it becomes one of the most enjoyable wineries you'll find in all of Napa Valley.

The Experience at Signorello

You can taste the wines at the bar in the tasting room if you want, but the food and wine pairings are more interesting. Some experiences also give a tour of the winery.

What’s Amazing at Signorello Estate

Signorello Estate sits just a few hundred feet above Silverado Trail, just high enough to get out of the busy Napa Valley and allowing excellent views. On their patio, the view is enhanced by a lovely infinity pool. 

Signorello has a tasting room, and their wines are great, but their food and wine pairings are the reason to visit - and they're some of the best we've experienced. 

Sitting on the patio with a view across Napa Valley, eating good food and enjoying good wine makes Signorello one of our Napa Valley favorites. Even better, it's a great value for money and an exciting way to start a day in wine country.

Food and Wine Pairing at Signorello

Wine should be enjoyed with food, and at Signorello, they intend to show you just how great that pairing can be.

Don't settle for a simple wine tasting here. Instead, choose from one of several food and wine experiences. The Enoteca Signorello experience is their pièce de résistance: a 1.5-hour dining and tasting delight served outside on the patio or indoors in an intimate dining room. 

For some courses, Signorello partners with Snake River Farms, the American producers of Kobe-style Wagyu beef, which pairs especially well with Signorello's Bordeaux-style Cabernets.

Signorello Estate Will Be Great For You If:

You will fall in love with Signorello just because of their view. They're just a short drive from Silverado Trail, but high enough on the hill to give a panoramic view of the Napa Valley.

Signorello's Enoteca experience is a foodie favorite, and very reasonably priced compared to similar offerings at other Napa wineries. In fact, it's so good that the Women Fashionista Mary Orlin wrote about it in the Huffington Post, saying that one of Napa's best dining experiences isn't at a restaurant, but at a winery.
