Tours and Tastings - many of you are wondering whether or not Roots Run Deep Winery is open for tours and tastings. The sad answer is NO we are not. The reason for this is that our property is not permitted by the county to conduct public tours and tastings. We are actively looking for a spot in the valley where we can host you in the future and will certainly let you know when we find such a place. We truly appreciate your passion, enjoyment and support of our wines and if there is anything we can do to help make your trip to Napa more enjoyable, please do not hesitate to ask!
