Designed as a "temple to art and wine", Clos Pegase is a very interesting place to visit, and one of the most unique winery experiences in Napa Valley. The winery is located in Calistoga, and from the moment you drive into the winery until you walk through the tasting room doors, you would think you are at an art museum and not a winery. The grounds are spectacular with a sculpture garden and fine art - even if you are not mad about the wines, Clos Pegase is worth visiting for the art and grounds alone. A great place for a picnic. Our server was very friendly and the tasting room is large and open. We did not find the wines up to the quality of the art and grounds though, and found the $15 tasting fee expensive for what you got. But I suppose the tasting fee covers the art show as well!!

2003 Hommage Artist Series Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet ($75)Rating: C

Finally. Just when we were giving up hope. Easily the best wine at the winery. Good fruit up front, and a nice finsh. Good structure and tannins. Nice wine, but not cheap

Ouch. We made it to the merlot and we are still striking out with the wines. The merlot lacks structure and finsh

"Dump it. Its like cough medicine." Not a very good start to a wine tasting. It is described as "Fun, pink and fruity…", but as you can tell we moved on from this pretty quickly
