Description: Located on 217 acres in the Carneros region of Napa Valley, di Rosa houses...
Located on 217 acres in the Carneros region of Napa Valley, di Rosa houses the foremost collection of contemporary Bay Area art, with nearly 2,000 works by 800 artists. A wide range of styles, media, and subject matter provide an overview of the creative energy and freedom to experiment that characterize this region of California. The Gatehouse Gallery welcomes drop-in visitors to view di Rosa’s current exhibition, but in order to view the full extent of the collection (including the Main Gallery, Residence, and Sculpture Meadow) a tour is required. These informal, guided tours include time for independent viewing of the artwork. Open Wednesday through Sunday. Advance reservations for tours are highly recommended.

We took the 2 hr tour at di Rosa. The very contemporary art and grounds are interesting as well as learning about the collector himself. While this was not my preference of art, it was entertaining to see such a vast amount of this type of art. If you are looking to add some variety to your itinerary while traveling... More

If you want to see quirky, creative, unusual, or why did they do that kind of art. This is your place. Be sure to call in advance as they are not always open. Do go once a year. The presentations change.

This is a wonderful, unique place that must be experienced. Be sure to take the tour or else you will not be able to see most of the grounds and the house. The house was, for me, the best part. It was filled with art as well as other items from the period and interesting objects that tell you about... More

This unique, one of a kind collection of extraordinary, contemporary art is a must see in Napa Valley. Take the 2 hour tour if you can, it is well worth the time and modest cost. Beautiful grounds, wide open buildings housing the art pieces, the Residence with its artwork everywhere. In places the art is a visual explosion that will... More

The preserve is a collection of art from northern CA dating from the late 1950s. The Meadow contains some larger pieces. The house (dating from the 1870s) is almost overwhelming. The other spaces have more, well, space. All in all worth several hours while taking a break from wine tasting.

The di Rosa perserve is one of the treasures of the Napa Valley. It is in a beautiful setting and the tour is fantastic. The collection interesting and it makes for a great visit after you get tired of visiting wineries.

The di Rosa Art Preserve is a wonderful gem in the Carneros region - easily accessible from Hwy 121, just outside the City of Napa. I have visited twice and find something new and interesting there each time. The grounds are beautiful, the art collection is whimsical, and the guides are knowledgeable. This is a great place to visit in... More

We were led on our tour by a very knowledgeable docent who answered our questions in detail, and made this art place so interesting, From the swinging angel to the hanging car to lots of yard art, you will not be disappointed. And the building fits into the beautiful landscape very nicely!

Great break from wine tasting to see a great collection in three exhibit buildings and a sculpture meadow. Must make a reservation to see beyond the entry collection. Depending on the time of day the Carneros Highway can be difficult to turn left onto to return to Napa so turn right and go to the stop light in less than... More
