Napa Valley & Sonoma Wine Tasting Tours


Ceja Vineyards wine tasting room in Los CarnerosBack in 1967, when the “rebirth” of California’s wine country was just getting underway, young Pablo and Juanita Ceja migrated from a small Mexican village to California's Napa Valley. They quickly found jobs in vineyards picking grapes, working hard each day while dreaming of a better life for their children.
Bocce ball court at Ceja Vineyards in Los CarnerosToday two of their sons, Pedro and Armando—along with their wives Amelia and Martha—co-own and manage highly-rated, 113-acre Ceja Vineyards. The Ceja family is dedicated to sustainable agriculture.
Ceja offers two separate wine-tasting experiences.
The small Carneros tasting room is open daily by appointment, giving you an opportunity to see the estate vineyards, beautiful gardens, and maybe try your hand on the Bocce Ball courts. Inside you’ll find an unusually hospitable atmosphere.
The second Ceja wine tasting option is in downtown Napa where no appointment is necessary.
