Read about how we rank Things to Do.
Owner and winemaker, John Williams, started as a dairy farmer in New York, but fell in love with winemaking and opened his own winery in 1981, known as Frog's Leap Winery. This country farm meets vineyard is the perfect place to enjoy great wine and company without the stuffiness sometimes found at wineries. Plus, Frog's Leap farms organically, so you're making healthy choices by the drinking wine – right?
Some say this winery offers the most relaxed and enjoyable tour-tasting in Napa Valley. Tour guides lead you through the fruit and vegetable gardens, the fermentation room, barrel room and the gorgeous farmhouse. Recent guests love leisurely savoring their wine while gazing at the gardens and Mayacamas Mountains from rocking chairs on the farmhouse porch. Guests also said that the occasional run-in with the jovial winemaker John Williams is always a treat.
Tours are offered at 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and are limited to 10 people. To secure a spot (tours fill quickly with only 10 allowed at a time), reserve a day or two in advance. The $25 tour fee includes a tasting of four current release wines.
