Owner description: One of Napa's classic wine estates, Trefethen is a hidden gem. Easy to find, but only if you're looking, our entry is on Oak Knoll Avenue, tucked away from the crowds of Highway 29. John Trefethen used to land his plane on the driveway during runs through the middle of our vineyard, over the ground we have tended for over 40 years. Located at the grand entrance to Napa Valley, we are one of Napa's classic family wine estates. Stunning valley and vineyards vistas surround guests as they sample distinctive hand crafted estate wines. (Reservations required). We look forward to welcoming you.

After visiting one vineyard earlier in the day, we rested and ate, and then proceeded to stop into Trefethen for the evening tour. The young man who greeted us (sorry ... can't recall his name) was an excellent host and took the time to talk us through the history of the company and layout of the vineyard. The wine tasting...

Gary Johnson's the best! I just wanted to send a quick note to thank you for all you, Joe and the family did to make our trip to Trefethen a most memorial experience.

I stopped at Trefethen on a quick weekend trip to Napa. It was a great stop in the limited time I had. The staff was great and very informative about the wines and winemaking in general. The wines were great as well, and I will soon be joining the wine club. I definitely recommend Trefethen if you are looking for... More

We were on way up to Calistoga and saw Trefethen right on the side of the rode, what a great stop! It said appointment needed however, walk-ins were allowed if available so we were happy to be able to get in without an appointment. The staff were really knowledgeable in their wines and explain the history and the land of... More

This vineyard/winery experienced some damage in the earthquake so they are currently operating out of a large tent. It's quaint and nice inside and we barely noticed we were in a tent. The gentleman helping us with our wine tasting was personable, laid back and a total foodie (a great match for us!) he had lots of recommendations for food... More

Thank you for crafting such a great review! We really appreciate the kind words about the tent! Who knew a tent could be so much fun. It has been very therapeutic for us to have guests return to the property! Cheers, Team Trefethen More

We visited here for the first time. Their temporary tasting room was great. We had Adam for our appointment. We loved the wines, especially the reds. We bought a few bottles to take with us and joined their wine club. One disappointing experience was the tasting fees were not waived even with us asking and joining their wine club. Since... More

We drove into Trefethen for our first stop of wine tasting trip on a glorious Fall day and it was such a delight. The temporary tasting room was pleasant and I recommend a tasting appointment to get a relaxing and informative view of the many deliious wines they make. Keith was such a knowledgeable person and it was great to... More

We've been to Trefethen on multiple occasions but this last time was disappointing. Most of the Napa wineries charge $20-$30 for their tastings, but most of them will at least credit one of them back if you buy some wine. My wife is a big fan of their cab franc so we were going to buy wine anyway. However we... More

Trefethen Winery was a place very unique to visit. Family owned and the employees were very hospitable. Had a wonderful tour of the beautiful grounds. Easy parking and especially enjoyed trying their "Sin" and "Dragon's Tooth" wines. Highly recommend a visit. We were there the first week of August 2014.
