Take a step back in time by visting an authentic, self-contained estate winery. O'Brien Estate covers 40 acres in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. From grape growing to bottling, the entire winemaking process is managed at the estate. The vineyards are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc. Our wines have received many awards, including a recent 96 point score for our 2012 Unrestrained Reserve Bordeaux Blend.

Great service, spectacular views, and delightful product. The most enjoyable tasting and tour my wife and I experienced. We knew we were in for something special when I called one hour ahead of the time we wanted to tour and Steve the manager told me they were full. After a few persuasive words, he did some investigation and made room... More

This is the first time we've visited O'Brien Winery and we loved it. We've been to several appointment-only vineyards in Napa and Sonoma, and at this vineyard, the personalized service, free wine tasting, delicious wine and beautiful vineyard were far above the rest. We sat on chairs in the owner's back yard and drank wonderful wines while Luis entertained us... More

This was the first stop on our Beau Wine Tour, second day of our honeymoon and we could not have been happier with the experience. We really enjoyed the wines (joined their club) and LOVED the laid back vibe of this winery. We sat out on the fields, wandered around, and chatted with the staff. We were the only couple... More

Went to O'Brien's this weekend and it was absolutely wonderful! The great Steve gave us a tour and we had a lovely tasting. Everything was perfect! I am not a red wine drinker, but their reds were so good that they converted me. The best I have ever had! I can not say enough good things about this winery. We... More

First, I planned this winery as the first stop on a three day visit to Napa Valley, based mostly on the review here on Trip Advisor. Obviously I arrived on the wrong day. They couldn't find my reservation and seemed surprised I was there even though I showed them my reservation on my phone. The guy serving us didn't seem... More

We liked the red's so much we joined their wine club to receive their reds 4 times a year. The setting is beautiful with a great... More

Took a break from the wine club here but missed the Seduction and other amazing reds at such good prices. Enjoyed meeting Luiz (new guy) and had a great tasting - we are back baby

Unfortuntely, we stopped at O'Brien winery as the first stop on our saturday tour of Napa wineries. I say unfortuntely because nothing else compared to the experience in terms of how we were greated and treated and the high quality of wines they produce. Their red wines were by far the best we had all day. The remainder of the... More
